Dr Dale Another beautiful song, my new favorite. The lyrics will bring tears of joy, the harmonies are spot on, both Dave and Tara have really pleasant voices. As a closet guitarist, I can appreciate Dave’s nice picking style...the light banjo in the background is a great touch. What’s not to love about this great new song? Can’t wait for Theresa next one.

about

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.
