“Give Me One Reason to stay here, and I’ll turn right back around.”
“The whole world’s broke, and 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.
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 of too few happy endings.
We can resolve to start over and make a new beginning.
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.”
1993 Tracy Chapman
