"Here I Go Again" as written by David Coverdale and Bernie Marsden....
I don't know where I'm goin'
But I sure know where I've been
Hanging on the promises in songs of yesterday
An' I've made up my mind, I ain't wasting no more time
Here I go again, here I go again

Tho' I keep searching for an answer
I never seem to find what I'm looking for
Oh Lord, I pray you give me strength to carry on
'Cause I know what it means to walk along the lonely street of dreams

Here I go again on my own
Goin' down the only road I've ever known
Like a drifter I was born to walk alone
An' I've made up my mind, I ain't wasting no more time

Just another heart in need of rescue
Waiting on love's sweet charity
An' I'm gonna hold on for the rest of my days
'Cause I know what it means to walk along the lonely street of dreams

And here I go again on my own
Goin' down the only road I've ever known
Like a drifter I was born to walk alone
An' I've made up my mind, I ain't wasting no more time
But here I go again, here I go again,
Here I go again, here I go

'Cause I know what it means to walk along the lonely street of dreams
Here I go again on my own
Goin' down the only road I've ever known
Like a drifter I was born to walk alone
An' I've made up my mind, I ain't wasting no more time
Here I go again on my own
Goin' down the only road I've ever known
Like a drifter I was born to walk alone
'Cause I know what it means to walk along the lonely street of dreams

Here I go again on my own
Goin' down the only road I've ever known
Like a drifter I was born to walk alone

    Sounds like he isn't wasting no more time
    wasting it on relationships that aren't
    love...he's waiting for "real love",
    even if he has to walk alone...

    General CommentLove this song!!!!! I hadn't heard it in a while and just recently saw the video ago and remembered why I loved it so. I totally agree with what the libertine said about the chorus, it's killer! And I just love the whole meaning behind it, about wanting to find something even though you're not sure what it is and how to find it, and how sometimes it seems as if you'll never get to it, but the hope keeps you going. Awesome!

    General CommentIn my opinion this song is related to how in life he falls in love and keeps chasing girls, but then comes to terms with how he was born to live alone for the rest of his life and that he is not "wasting no more time" chasing girls... "Here I go Again" probably refers to him falling in love and chasing girls but here he goes again losing the relationship and being alone again

    General CommentLOVE IT!!! i think its about how some people are destined to be stuck falling into the same pattern of love... or lack of for that matter. That's what it means because 'Here I go again on my own'
