I had this crazy idea
Somehow, we'd coast to the end
But change lies in every direction, so now
Guess we just begin again

Oh, girl, it's been a while
Since we met, out there in the cold
It seems so long ago
It's hard to imagine
The lives we used to have
When the nights were ours alone

So now what?

I had this crazy idea
Somehow, we'd coast to the end
Change lies in every direction, so now
Guess we just begin again
I think you know you're my best friend

It's sort of an unspoken rule
That things will not
Turn out the way you planned
You know that I, I can handle all of that
If I can still take your hand
Can you still think I am strong
If I admit that I was wrong?

So now what?

I had this crazy idea
Somehow, we'd coast to the end
Change lies in every direction, so now
Guess we just begin again
I hope you know you're my best friend

I had this crazy idea
Somehow, we'd coast to the end
Change lies in every direction, so now
Guess we just begin again
Guess we just begin again (guess we just begin again)
Guess we just begin again (guess we just begin again)
Guess we just begin again (guess we just begin again)
Guess we just begin again...

    General CommentThis song is simply lovely. It makes me want to just get into my car and drive. I think it's about knowing that things and people in life are going to change and the uncertainty and unknowing of how things are going to turn out. At the same time, it has an optimistic and hopeful vibe to it. No matter what the outcome is, you'll be able to work through it and "begin again..." as the lyric echoes.

    My Interpretation"Oh, girl, it's been a while
    Since we met, out there in the cold
    It seems so long ago
    It's hard to imagine
    The lives we used to have
    When the nights were ours alone"

    Could be interpreted as having been in a relationship for so long that you forget who you were before it, or that you forget what it was like when it was just the two of you, before children. Either way, time has passed.
