Words and music by Mark and Mary Whitehead
If you watched my interview with Ron and Joy last week for OnStl.com's “Hello St. Louis” you heard the story of a friend of ours who learned he had cancer, lost his job and his wife left him – all in a very short span of time. The worst part was that he never saw any of it coming. All I could do was talk to him on the phone and listen to him describe the events of each grueling day. At one particularly low point, I worried that he might take his own life. But he was stronger and braver than I gave him credit for. Slowly he put his life back together. Today he has a good job, is cancer free, and has a new girlfriend.
It was during the worst chapter of that time that I wrote this week’s song, “I Will Start All Over Again”. It begins with a great piano loop from Garage Band. I love the riff and put it in the song just for fun. I play all the other instruments. I had a hard time with the vocals because the song is just out of my range, so be kind.
The song is copyrighted under the name “My Song 606” because of a clerical mistake I made when I sent it to our lawyer.
I hope you enjoy it, and as Abby says, “All Done!”
Have a great week and be kind to someone.
