Over Again

about

I read the prompt ("up is down") and it was like a movie ran in my head. The soundtrack started playing and the words started coming and I was pretty much done writing it by the end of the same afternoon. Would love to hear a country artist sing the heck out of this song.

lyrics

Took a while for the waters
To be as still as they have been
For the clouds to have parted
to feel the sunlight on her skin
And she knows the worst is over
But her heart is worse for wear
And she didn’t need to see him standing there

Now, up is down, then is now
All at once she’s inside out
Just as hurt as she was then
It’s all over again
There’s a lot she can take
She’ll be damned before she breaks
But there’s nothing for the pain that hits you when
It’s over again

Holds her breath for a moment
Then lets a smile cross her face
Not the one that he hoped for
Something broken in its place
And there’s nothing he can say
That he hasn’t said before
Nothing he can do here anymore

When up is down, then is now
All at once she’s inside out
Just as hurt as she was then
It’s all over again
There’s a lot she can take
She’ll be damned before she breaks
But there’s nothing for the pain that hits you when
It’s over again

It’s been a while since you could hold her
You’d be surprised what time can change
You could walk right through her old heart
Now it’s all been rearranged

And up is down, then is now
All at once she’s inside out
Just as hurt as she was then
It’s all over again
There’s a lot she can take
She’ll be damned before she breaks
But there’s nothing, nothing for the pain
No there’s nothing, nothing for the pain that hits you when
It’s over again, over again

Now the reason we're here
Every man, every woman
Is to help each other
Stand by each other
When love walks in the room
Everybody stand up
Oh it's good, good good
Say I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you - The Pretenders

At some point in my life, I heard this song and decided (before I knew I decided) that my life purpose was to send a "message of love". Be <3
