Open up your eyes
Awake, arise
Love like a hand reaches down
And pulls us up from the dirty ground

Now is the time
To step from the dark into the light
Cause you can’t change what you’ve done
But you can choose who you’ll become

Every moment is a second chance
At starting over, at starting over
Move from the past to the present tense
You can start over, start over again

If you feel ashamed
Of the choices that you’ve made
You can be whole again
And return to your innocence

Every moment is a second chance
At starting over, at starting over
Move from the past to the present tense
You can start over, start over again

Yesterday is gone
Today is all you’ve got
You don’t have to be who you’ve been
You can change within
It’s never too late
To start over again

Every moment is a second chance
At starting over, at starting over
Move from the past to the present tense
You can start over, start over again

    General Commenthow has no one commented on this song yet?!?! I just recently discovered Addison Road and I can't get over how good their music is, it hits me on so many levels and really speaks to my soul.

    For me this song is pretty easy to interpret, it's about letting go of our past and moving into all that we can become. We aren't contained to who we were and how we used to be, life is meant to be lived, not regretted.

    Yesterday is gone
    Today is all you've got
    You don't have to be who you've been
    You can change within
    It's never too late
    To start over again

    just plain amazing.
