I canít get over it
Better go around
Canít get around it
I better go down
Canít get under, so
I better go up
And start all over again

I really didnít know
Didnít get to say goodbye
And though it still hurts
Donít know if Iíll ever cry
I canít find words so
I shake my head and I
Try to start over again

Thereís trouble if you stay
And sorrow if you go
Seems like you leave to fast
Or you check out way too slow
Seems like every path
Leads to something I donít know
Over and over again

Feel like Iím running under water
Iím in way up over my head
God bless the sons and the daughters
Whose fate has not been set

I canít get over it
Better go around
Canít get around it
I better go down
Canít dig down, so
I better go up
And start all over again
And start all over again

For me, no one does a song like this better than JG. It has 'it', I connected to 'it' on the first listen. Dealing with loss is tough, hard to put in words, but here is a guy that succeeds in doing just that, it becomes my song too, I can relate. One of my favorites of this album (I got a few).

And start all over again.

I agree. I lost my mother recently and this song really hit home for me. This is John at his best for sure. Overall, this is a really good CD.

An economy of words - but they get the point across. A beautiful melody -and the accordion is a nice touch, too.

Moz - sorry for your loss. Both mine are still with me; but getting on in years. Seeing them tomorrow in fact, and will tell them I love them, again.

Best Thanksgiving wishes to you all, and thanks for being fellow JG fans and sharing your thoughts on his music.

Thank you John, for making music we love!

Neil
