This song seemed to come out of nowhere... Tara was humming, crafting words, shepherding the texture of the song for a while and brought it to me for arrangement. The song flowed like the salmon of Capistrano... we wrote the bridge section together, and boom, it was done. We started singing "Try Again" at different concerts and had GREAT feedback from people! 

"Try Again" is about remembering and intentionally engaging with the power forgiveness. It's a reminder that life can flow when we prioritize forgiveness. When we don't forgive, it creates a bitter root in our hearts that strangles our quality of life and steals our joy. Bitterness attempts to justify our anger and encourages your desire to make your perpetrator suffer... and sometimes your perpetrator is you. Unforgiveness steals life from us, leaving us numb in some ways, and full of vitriol in others. 

Do yourself a favor and become proficient at forgiveness. Develop the skill of forgiveness. Forgive deeply and forgive often. In fact, make every effort to forgive before the sun goes down that day. Many people think that forgiveness is primarily about releasing others of offenses, and what we end up finding out is that forgiveness actually releases US into freedom. When we forgive ourselves and others, WE become the primary beneficiaries of forgiveness.

lyrics

Verse 1 
Today was a little bit harder 
My heart sank a little bit further 
I cried and you said you’d do better next time 

Verse 2 
This road seems a little bit longer 
Your words stung a little bit deeper 
You cried and you said you’ll do better next time 

Chorus 
Let’s not go to bed angry tonight 
Let’s make up, let’s make sure we’re alright 
‘Cause tomorrow the sun is gonna rise 
and we will try again 

Verse 3 
Today I’m a little bit lighter 
My heart’s still a little bit tender 
I smile because I know we’ll do better with time 

Verse 4 
I think we are a little bit stronger 
You held me a little bit longer 
I’ll fight and I know we’ll get better with time 

Chorus 
Let’s not go to bed angry tonight 
Let’s make up, let’s make sure we’re alright 
Cause tomorrow the sun is gonna rise 
and we will try again 

Bridge 
We will try again 
We will try again 
We will try again 
We will try again 
We will try again 
We will try again 
We will try again 
We will try again 

Chorus 
Let’s not go to bed angry tonight 
Let’s make up, let’s make sure we’re alright 
Cause tomorrow the sun is gonna rise 
and we will try again.
