"Another Try" as written by Jeremy N. Spillman and Chris Stapleton....
All the things I've felt and never shared.
All the times that she was lonely with me there.
Tears I wouldn't let fall from my eyes.
And how I let her go without a fight.

The reasons I'm alone, I know by heart.
But I don't wanna spend forever in the dark.
I swear next time I'll hang on for dear life.
If love ever gives me another try.

There's no changing things that we regret.
The best that we can hope for is one more chance.
If the hands of time could just move in reverse.


I wouldn't make the same mistake again with her.

The reasons I'm alone, I know by heart.
But I don't wanna spend forever in the dark.
I swear next time I'll hang on for dear life.
If love ever gives me another try.

Oh, the reasons I'm alone I know by heart.
But I don't wanna spend forever in the dark.
I swear next time I'll hang on for dear life,
If love ever gives me another try.

Oh if love ever gives me another try.

    General CommentI always said if i had another shot at love ( and i mean a real true love) then i would roam all over hell and high water to keep it. Nobody wants to be alone, but sometimes stupid ass pride or ego steps in and then voila! You are then begging for another try. Thank god mine was 2/26/10!

    General Commenti looooove this song! :D
    i think it's about this guy saying that he'll make everything work out if she'll just give their love another try.
    all too relatable for this chick :/
    i love josh turner so much ^^

    My InterpretationI see it as he's moved on and he doesn't want the one he just had-he wants someone
    else and he wants to not make the same mistakes with someone new because it's
    just easier to let go and never try make amends or even apologize to her...
    He won't make the same mistakes with her-because he's with someone else!
    Now he can make all new mistakes...
