Circle back, start again: lyrics, and the awkward un-knowing


This is a song about getting lost and found all over again. It’s about letting go of old ways of thinking without really knowing how it’s going to turn out, but mainly it’s a song about grace.


Grace in the letting go, grace in the awkward not-knowing and unlearning of harmful thinking and grace in the re-discovering, the starting over all over again.



Circle back, start again

by Tina Boonstra and Barnabas Shaw

I was doing better doing fine, going outside

Feeling futures in full colour for the first time

I was happy to be alive


Taking every minute in my stride,

Now I find I’m not alright with what’s been changing, when I did try

What I needed to see was true, was just a picture I made of you


Where do we go from here? Can we just take it slow?

Will you be by my side, when I don’t know?

Where do we go from here? Can we just take our time?

If you’ll be by my side then I’ll be fine


Try to keep my head, like I do, like I want to

But I’m splitting at the seams and I need you

Help me, what is it gonna take, to find a place in your home again?


But the tears won’t stop, the tears won’t stop, the tears won’t stop falling will they?

The tears won’t stop, the tears won’t stop, the tears won’t stop falling will they?


Now I’m up ripping up the route, trace my steps, turning back again

The high road I riding was a dead end

I don’t know if I have the strength, you circle back and we start again.
