Starting All Over Again lyrics

Starting all over again is going to be rough
For us, we're going to make it
Starting all over as friends is going be tough
On us, we gotta face it

We lost what we had
That would hurt us so bad
Set us back a thousand years
But we going to make it up
Though I know it's going to be tough
To erase the hurt and fears

Starting all over again is going to be hard
But I pray to the Lord to help us make it
Starting all over again is going to slow
But we both know, we gonna make it

We gotta take life as it comes
Never fuss about it, what's right or wrong
It's an uphill climb, to the finish line
We gonna try, we gonna try, just one more time

We gotta take life as it comes
Don't make any fuss about it, what's right or wrong
We gonna make it up, though I know it's gonna be rough
To erase the hurt and fears

Starting all over again is going to be rough
For us, we're going to make it
Starting all over as friends is going be tough
On us, we gotta face it

Hear Hall and Oates sing Starting All Over Again in 1991 for their Japan Acoustic Tour.

Jonathan dances. Music: Starting All Over Again by Hall and Oates.

This is the very first video ever taken of Jonathan ~ May 27, 1996. I met him at the end of October 1995. At the time, he was in Mrs. D's second grade class and living with one of several foster families that he was placed with over the course of two years. He was one of hundreds of music students that I was teaching in a public school that year. On this day, he was visiting our home and I got out the huge video camera that I owned. Since March of that year, I was giving him free piano lessons and helping him with his speech lessons with the blessing of the foster family. On this day, we had planted a bush in the front yard and named it after him. That bush didn't survive and thrive, but Jonathan has! He is wearing Mark's sweater, here. Although the video tape was defective since the day I shot this, my video teacher helped me in June 2009 with his great equipment in video class, to transfer it from my VHS video tape.... so that I could upload this on my computer and then I could share it with Jonathan on youtube as a private video. It came out much better quality than how it had deteriorated on the tape. So I am thrilled, as Jonathan is so adorable in these few minutes of memorable video.

Jonathan now is a young man that just gave me the blessing of a human being with thoughtful listening and feedback, care, compassion and a bountiful heart on this very day - my birthday - April 2, 2011. Jonathan is now 23 years old. And graduates May 6, 2011 from Northeastern University with 2 degrees:
Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering; GPA: 3.8/4.0
Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering
