"New Beginning" as written by and Tracy L Chapman....
The whole world's broke and it ain't worth fixing
It's time to start all over, make a new beginning
There's too much pain, too much suffering
Let's resolve to start all over make a new beginning

Now don't get me wrong I love life and living
But when you wake up and look around at everything that's going down
All wrong
You see we need to change it now, this world with too few happy endings
We can resolve to start all over make a new beginning

Start all over
Start all over
Start all over
Start all over

The world is broken into fragments and pieces
That once were joined together in a unified whole
But now too many stand alone There's too much separation
We can resolve to come together in the new beginning

Start all over
Start all over
Start all over
Start all over

We can break the cycle - We can break the chain
We can start all over - In the new beginning
We can learn, we can teach
We can share the myths the dream the prayer
The notion that we can do better
Change our lives and paths
Create a new world

And Start all over
Start all over
Start all over
Start all over

The whole world's broke and it ain't worth fixing
It's time to start all over, make a new beginning
There's too much fighting, too little understanding
It's time to stop and start all over
Make a new beginning

Start all over
Start all over
Start all over
Start all over

We need to make new symbols
Make new signs
Make a new language
With these we'll define the world

And start all over
Start all over
Start all over
Start all over ...

    General CommentI love this song I can't believe no ones commented on it. I don't even need to say what this is about, it's completely self explanatory. I love the way Tracy Chapman has so much hope for the future and people. That in fact we can rectify all the pain that we've created. The world's a mess. To be able to wipe the slate clean and start fresh, everything new, no more pain, no more suffering, no more poverty or war. It's like a dream come true. I wish people would listen sometimes...

    Song MeaningThe last verse of Tracy Chapman's, "New Beginning", about making a new language: I discovered how spoken-word language subliminally informs us all, simply by the use of vocal sounds to refer to things, of the meaning of our world. I would really like to share my findings with Tracy but I can't find out how to reach her. It seems, as with all stars, a wall has been built around her to protect her from the public.This is reasonable, but how do I reach her? My email is: joeg4us@roadrunner.com.
