"Recover" as written by Francis Eg White and Natasha Bedingfield....
Been torn apart,
Got so many scratches and scars,
Maybe they wont all go away,
But they'll fade,
Maybe time can mend us together.. again.
Its not what we've done but, how far we've come.

We will recover
The worst is over, now.
All those fires we've been walking through,
And still we survive, somehow.
We will recover
The worst is behind
And it hurts, but in time, I know that we will recover.
(Yeah yeah)

Got so much to lose,
Seems I've lost my power to choose, oh
What to love and when to let go,
That all changed,
Get bitten once and then your afraid
What a waste,
Look what we've done,
How far we've come..

We will recover,
The worst is over, now.
All those fires we've been walking through,
And still we survive, somehow.
We will recover,
The worst is behind,
And it hurts, but in time, I know that we will recover.
Everybody's gotta, a reason to cry,
And everybody fights but, not everyone survives
And everybody's searching, not everybody finds
And I'm still in recovery, and I'll make it alive?

We will recover,
The worst is over, now.
All those fires we've been walking through
And still we survive, somehow.

We will recover
The worst is behind, and it hurts but in time,
I know that we will recover,
The worst is over, now.
And all those fires we've been walking through,
And still we survive, somehow.
We will recover,
The worst is behind
And it hurts, but in time, I know that we will recover

    General CommentI heard this on a State Farm insurance commercial the other day and was like... I need to find out what this song is. I wasn't familiar with any other songs of hers at the time. I didn't even know "Unwritten" was by her.

    The first time I heard it all the way through it seemed very much like it was referring to people in a relationship that were at the point where they were about to give up, but one of them says, no- look at all of the things we have accomplished. Don't give up now after we have endured all the crap that goes along with getting through the rough parts of being in a relationship. I think I get that in the third section where it reads,
    "Got so much to lose
    Seems I've lost my power to choose
    What to love and when to let go
    That all changed
    Get bitten once and then you're afraid
    What a waste
    Look what we've done
    How far we've come"
    It's like you see that you have changed the other person just by knowing them, and sometimes not for the better and you both have to decide if the relationship can survive all of the things you put each other through. Like, "Yeah, we made a mess of each other and are all scarred up, but look at how far we've gotten. The worst is over."

    "Everybody's got a reason to cry
    And everybody fights, but not everyone survives
    And everybody's searching, not everybody finds
    And I'm still in recovery, help me make it out alive"

    This part is so powerful and can apply to so many things in life, but I would never have thought to put in such simple terms. There are things you don't think you will make it out of; relationships and friendships ending, deaths, losses, and some people are never the same, but this just sums up the feeling of being so raw and weak from whatever it was that you went through but finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel.
    This is a wonderful song that really shows off her voice, too.
