"Born Again" as written by and James/stelfox Walsh....
But for the grace of God
She'd cry herself to sleep
Because the grace of God
Is something she can keep
Oh, it won't be long
Until their hold is broken
Oh, it won't be long
Until we've found our home

It's for the good of you
I sing sweet melody
They'll cast the first stone
When the last one's out of reach

Oh, it won't be long
Until their hold is broken
Oh, it won't be long
Until we've found our home

Forget where to begin
Brother I have not sinned
I have not

But for the grace of God
She'd cry herself to sleep
But now the grace of God
Is the reason that she weeps

Oh, it won't be long
Until their hold is broken
Oh, it won't be long
Until we've found our home

When summer comes, light my life
Snow will melt away
When summer comes, light my life
Snow will melt away

I was born again, I was born again
Not into the world they put me in
She was born again, she was born again
Not into the world they put her in

I was born again, I was born again
Not into the world they put me in
She was born again, she was born again
Not into the world they put her in.

    Lyric CorrectionBut they forgot one of the best parts of the song. Right at the end, after "she was born again, she was born again/ not into the world they put her in."

    "Lord, I know, my heart beats slow
    From time, to time when I was blind.

    The hope and the spirit
    I'd rather not feel it
    The hope and the spirit
    I'd rather not fear it"

    General CommentIt's a beautiful song and the video clip just completes it. The video stars and ends with the girl being & staying alive... :) and there is always a turning back point, every time she would die, she'll be born at her happiest moment with her love...
    in the first verse The "Grace of God" are the goodness of life we enjoy freely, and love is that... so all she wants and all she knows is that free joy, free love & she keeps it.. :)
    .
    "Oh, it won't be long
    Until their hold is broken
    Oh, it won't be long
    Until we've found our home "
    .
    I have to interpretation in here:
    the first one would be, the thing that's keeping them apart is soon to be over and they would be together again permanently...
    (or they are together for that moment until they find their permanent home, meaning someone who they'll love for the rest of the life, they love each other now but they are in different dynamics of life at this point, which will explain why the guy keeps moving on his own way...)
    .
    "It's for the good of you
    I sing sweet melody
    They'll cast the first stone
    When the last one's out of reach "
    .
    and this is the hope zone, and never give up : "They'll cast the first stone
    When the last one's out of reach " ; so even when everything looks like its over they star it again be born again, like a never ending story... :)
    .
    "Forget where to begin
    Brother I have not sinned
    I have not
    .
    But for the grace of God
    She'd cry herself to sleep
    But now the grace of God
    Is the reason that she weeps"
    .
    here I see the guy's perspective; he too gets back to the same point of birth & joy & love, meaning he wants the girls and wants her to stay alive, he tries to find ways how to begin again and so she wont have to die bcoz he has not sinned...
    .
    "When summer comes, light my life
    Snow will melt away"
    .
    summer is always fresh and beautiful and all positive, so he waits summer in his life, snow will melt away, meaning the misunderstandings and "the thing" that holds them back will be gone, for summer is a new beginning for them both.
    .
    "I was born again, I was born again
    Not into the world they put me in
    She was born again, she was born again
    Not into the world they put her in "
    .
    so here is the freedom, they both be born again, be free to decide by choice and not by the circumstances "the world they put her/him in", and the video clip ends with the girl being alive, which confirms the 'being born again', they both are free to live by choice!
    .
    Awesome song, & this was my impression, hope you like it :)))
