Let’s Start from Here

giving up, why should I
have come too far to forget
beautiful, just got lost
somewhere along the way
so much was missing when you went away

let’s start from here, lose the past
change our minds, we don′t need a finish line
let’s take this chance, don’t think too deep
all those promises we couldn′t seem to keep
I don’t care where we go
let’s start from here

standing here, face to face
a finger on your lips
don’t say a word, don’t make a sound
silence around us now
even when you were gone, I felt you everywhere

let’ start from here, lose the past
change our minds, we don′t need a finish line
let’s take this chance, don’t think too deep
of all those promises we couldn′t seem to keep
I don’t care where we go
let’s start from here
let’s start from here

I’ve never been the one to open up
but you’ve always been the voice within
the only one for my cold heart
let’s start from here, lose the past
change our minds, we don’t need a finish line
let’s take this chance, don’t think too deep
of all those promises

start from here, lose the past
change our minds, we don’t need a finish line
let’s take this chance, don’t think too deep
and all those promises we couldn’t seem to keep
I don’t care where we go
let’s start from here
let’s start from here
let’s start from here
let’s start from here

~ sung by Joanna Wang ~

This song was introduced to me by two of my dearest friends 2 years ago in the midst of a crisis I was going through. Its meaning then to me, was not to give up and to start all over again. 2 years today, after embarking on the inner journey, this song found its way to my ears once again and a deeper meaning was revealed to me. 

It is not about starting all over again. To start all over again, is to be re-do, repeat and to correct what was previously not right.

It is about starting now, and here, at this very point. There is no continuance from the past and there is no future to tread forward to. Yet, many swing between the past and future resulting in painful arguments and hurtful disagreements; often forgetting what is right in front of them, what is here and now; myself included – brewing a past which is long gone, or imagining a future which has yet to come, or more true does not even exit. Anger builds and ends with resentment making the underlying love unable to blossom, the foundation of a relationship then stumbles with instability. And we ask ourselves, what is wrong with our relationship with another?

Having said that, although this song seems to imply of lovers in a relationship, I am extending it any kind of relationships, everything and anything that is encompassing.

A cue which I wish to share with those who love, and are loved ~ it is here & now.

Enjoy… Let’s Start from Here by Joanna Wang
