New Beginning

                By Tracy Chapman

 The whole world broke and it isn't worth fixing
 It's time to start all over and make a new beginning.
 There's too much path too much suffering,
 Let's resolve to start all over and make a new beginning.
 Now don't get me wrong,
 I love life and living,
 But when you wake up and look a round 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 and make a new beginning.
 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 . . .

 We can break the cycles
 We can break the chains
 We can start all over in the new beginning.
 We can learn, we can teach,
 We can share the myths, the dreams, the prayers,
 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.

 There's too much fighting
 Too little understanding
 It's time to start and start all over
 Make a new beginning - start all over
 Start all over, start all over
 We need to make new symbols, make new signs
 Make a new language,
 With these well redefine the world and start all over, start all over.
