Original Song – “Love Again”

Love Again is a slow, tender, thoughtful, pensive, melancholy, bluesy sort of song pondering lost love and questioning whether love will ever find a way back to your heart again.  At the same time, this song is a dialogue between the singer and an ‘unseen’ second person, so the listener doesn’t really know if the singer is contemplating their own situation out loud to no one in particular, or if the singer is trying to comfort another.  Comforting another person’s heart in their hour of need is one of the most tender and thoughtful of human emotions – after all, emotion is the very basis and foundation of both new and rekindled love.  “Can you ever love again, Once your love is gone, Can you ever love again, With a broken heart…”

As with all of my early songs during which I worked with my friend Gordon Olvera, I’ve shared the copyright with him for trying to give voice to my songs.  Also, emailed versions of these songs lose their chord alignment and formatting, so refer to the original post and/or the scanned lyric sheet as your guide.
