songs about new beginnings

The first one that came to mind is Warrant's "Letter to a friend." I'm gonna do a search for the lyrics ... be a sec ... okay, got it ...

Letter to a Friend by Warrant

I'm alive and you're alive

And don't we both deserve to be happy

We realize we're not the same

So no one here should take away the blame

It's okay to walk away

And live to love another day

This is not a fiarytale

This is life and sometimes life fails

CHORUS

Thought I'd let you know

Just before you go

It's alright

Make your brand new start

But keep me in your heart

And you'll be fine

That's reality

As water flows beneath the bridge

We're learning how to forgive

As milk spreads out across the floor

We both agree it's not worth fighting for

Repeat Chorus

BRIDGE

Nothing's perfect except God and a California sunset

We're not perfect

It doesn't mean we're bad

There's a place in the sun for everyone

You just got to find it

I wish you luck with yours

I have to go and find mine

* * * * *

This is from their '96 release, 'Belly To Belly - Vol. 1' and yep, I own it. However, it's not as good 95's 'Ultraphobic.'

Although Warrant has been labelled "Hair-Metal," it's true for their first couple of releases but that's all. They started to really rock (of course, with a few ballads thrown in for good measure).

I just realized, I'm ramblin' on that has nothin' to do with the original post =:P

I'm a retart.

How about ...

One Little Victory - Rush

A certain measure of innocence

Willing to appear naive

A certain degree of imagination

A measure of make-believe

A certain degree of surrender

To the forces of light and heat

A shot of satisfaction

In a willingness to risk defeat

Celebrate the moment

As it turns into one more

Another chance at victory

Another chance to score

The measure of the moment

In a difference of degree

Just one little victory

A spirit breaking free

One little victory

The greatest act can be

One little victory

A certain measure of righteousness

A certain amount of force

A certain degree of determination

Daring on a different course

A certain amount of resistance

To the forces of the light and love

A certain measure of tolerance

A willingness to rise above

One little victory

One little victory

One little victory

One little victory

Celebrate the moment

As it turns into one more

Another chance at victory

Another chance to score

The measure of the moment

In a difference of degree

Just one little victory

A spirit breaking free

One little victory

The greatest act can be

One little victory

The greatest act can be

One little victory

The greatest act can be

One little victory

One little victory

One little victory

One little victory

One little victory

Just one little victory

Or...

High Hopes - Pink Floyd

Beyond the horizon of the place we lived when we were young

In a world of magnets and miracles

Our troughts strayed constandly and without boundary

The ringing of the division bell had begin

Along the long road and on down the causeway

Do they still meet there by the cut

There was a ragged band that followed in our footsteps

Running before time took our dreams away

Leaving the myriad small creatures trying to tie us to the ground

To a life consumed by slow decay

The grass was greener

The light was brighter

With friends surrounded

The night of wonder

Looking beyond the embers of bridges glowing behind us

To a glimpse of how green it was on the other side

Steps taken forwards but sleepwalking back again

Dragged by the force of some inner tide

At a higher altitude with flag unfuried

We reached the dizzy heights of that dreamed of world

Eneumbered forever by desire and ambition

There?s a hunger still unsatisfied

Our weary eyes still stray to the horizon

Though down this road we?ve been so many time

The grass was greener

The light was brighter

The taste was sweeter

The nights of wonder

With friends surrounded

The dawn mist glowing

The water flowing

The endless river

Forever and ever

"..Some dreams live on in time forever

Those dreams, you want with all your heart

And I'll do whatever it takes

Follow through with the promise I made

Put it all on the line

What I hoped for at last would be mine

If I could reach, higher

Just for one moment touch the sky

From that one moment in my life

I'm gonna be stronger

Know that I've tried my very best

I'd put my spirit to the test

If I could reach

Some days are meant to be remembered

Those days we rise above the stars

So I'll go the distance this time

Seeing more the higher I climb

That the more I believe

All the more that this dream will be mine

If I could reach, higher

Just for one moment touch the sky

From that one moment in my life

I'm gonna be stronger

Know that I've tried my very best

I'd put my spirit to the test

If I could reach

If I could reach, higher

Just for one moment touch the sky

I'm goona be stronger

From that one moment in my life

I'm gonna be so much stronger yes I am

Know that I've tried my very best

I'd put my spirit to the test

If I could reach higher

If I could, If I could

If I could reach

Reach, I'd reach, I'd reach

I'd reach' I'd reach so much higher

Be stronger"

I am sure you have heard this song before? It's "REACH" by Gloria Estefan. A very good song for the situation.

I have some more songs suggestions for you that I am trying to track down now. Unfortunately, after just now downloading the song Reach I can honestly say all other suggestions are NOT going to top this song. Give it a listen! :)

Fleetwood Mac's Rumors is all about starting over , starting new lives - this is one of my favorites:

Don't Stop by Christine Mcvey

If you wake up and don't want to smile,

If it takes just a little while,

Open your eyes and look at the day,

You'll see things in a different way.

Don't stop, thinking about tomorrow,

Don't stop, it'll soon be here,

It'll be, better than before,

Yesterday's gone, yesterday's gone.

Why not think about times to come,

And not about the things that you've done,

If your life was bad to you,

Just think what tomorrow will do.

Don't stop, thinking about tomorrow,

Don't stop, it'll soon be here,

It'll be, better than before,

Yesterday's gone, yesterday's gone.

All I want is to see you smile,

If it takes just a little while,

I know you don't believe that it's true,

I never meant any harm to you.

Don't stop, thinking about tomorrow,

Don't stop, it'll soon be here,

It'll be, better than before,

Yesterday's gone, yesterday's gone.

Don't you look back,

Don't you look back.
