Saturday’s Song: Here I Go Again

Twice over the past week, Whitesnake’s Here I Go Again has come on the radio in my car.  Hearing it while driving reminds me of the days when I used to listen to the song on cassette while cruising in my Camaro.  Now that I’ve said that, I feel the need to disclose that I’m not quite as old as that statement might lead one to believe 😉  I should also note that I have an issue with the second verse.  Love isn’t “charity”.  And that whole “rescue” idea isn’t healthy, regardless of whether you’re the one looking to be rescued or doing the rescuing.  (OK, Tara.  Now shut up and stop pissing on this retro 80s awesomeness.)

Anyway… the fact that I heard the twenty-five-year-old (whoa, really??) song twice in the past seven days made me think it would be a good one to share here today…

Here I Go Again, written by Bernie Marsden and David Coverdale

No, I don’t know where I’m going
But, I sure know where I’ve been
Hanging on the promises
In songs of yesterday
An’ I’ve made up my mind,
I ain’t wasting no more time
Here I go again
Here I go again

Tho’ I keep searching for an answer,
I never seem to find what I’m looking for
Oh Lord, I pray
You give me strength to carry on,
‘Cos I know what it means
To walk along the lonely street of dreams

An’ here I go again on my own
Goin’ down the only road I’ve ever known,
Like a drifter I was born to walk alone
An’ I’ve made up my mind
I ain’t wasting no more time

I’m just another heart in need of rescue,
Waiting on love’s sweet charity
An’ I’m gonna hold on
For the rest of my days,
‘Cos I know what it means
To walk along the lonely street of dreams

An’ here I go again on my own
Goin’ down the only road I’ve ever known,
Like a drifter I was born to walk alone
An’ I’ve made up my mind
I ain’t wasting no more time

But, here I go again,
Here I go again,
Here I go again,
Here I go

‘Cos I know what it means
To walk along the lonely street of dreams

An’ here I go again on my own
Goin’ down the only road I’ve ever known,
Like a drifter I was born to walk alone
An’ I’ve made up my mind,
I ain’t wasting no more time

An’ here I go again on my own
Goin’ down the only road I’ve ever known,
Like a drifter I was born to walk alone
‘Cos I know what it means
To walk along the lonely street of dreams

An’ here I go again on my own
Goin’ down the only road I’ve ever known,
Like a drifter I was born to walk alone
Goin’ down the only road I’ve ever known,

A friend of mine once told me he believed this was his personal theme song.  Do you have a theme song?  Or just a request for Saturday’s Song?  Feel free to share it with me @RelativEvolutns or divorce.encouragist@gmail.com
