Mickey Newbury - "When Do We Stop Starting Over" lyrics

Over and over so many times
We've started over again
So careful to fit all the pieces back together
So carelessly thrown to the wind
And words only spoken in moments of anger
But remembered long after they're said
In time will destroy all and leave us forever
Alone in our own empty beds
When do we stop starting over
We've started over before
When do we stop slowly killin' one another
With words and at times even more

We must forgive and for all that has happened
Forget what can keep us apart
And start learning now how to trust one another
And stop breaking each others hearts

Stop starting over
