Feel Again

My February 2013 Song of the Month

(Due to changing priorities, this is the last in my series of Song of the Month posts.)

Feel Again by OneRepublic

Feel Again by OneRepublic

The shortest month brought me a cold this year, leaving me grumpy, tired, and out of sorts. But one thing which penetrates my gloom is an upbeat song with a driving beat, especially when it is offered up by a loved one who empathizes with its message. The song is anthemic with gospel influences.

OneRepublic has been around for a decade and hails from Colorado Springs, founded by Ryan Tedder and Zach Elkins. It once was reportedly the most successful unsigned band on the MySpace internet service and rose to prominence in 2006 with the song Apologize, although that song does little for me.

Feel Again was an early release in August 2012 ahead of their third album, Native. Proceeds from the song’s iTunes sales are going to Save the Children’s Every Beat Matters campaign to benefit health care workers in impoverished countries.

FEEL AGAIN

It’s been a long time coming since I’ve seen your face
I’ve been everywhere and back trying to replace
Everything that I’ve had till my feet went numb
Praying like a fool that’s been on the run
Heart still beating but it’s not working
It’s like a million dollar phone that you just can’t ring
I reach out trying to love but I feel nothing
Yeah, my heart is numb

But with you, I feel again
Yeah with you, I can feel again, yeah

(Woo hoo) I’m feeling better since you know me
I was a lonely soul but that’s the old me

It’s been a long time coming since I’ve seen your face
I’ve been everywhere and back trying to replace
Everything that I broke till my feet went numb
Praying like a fool who just shot a gun
Heart still beating but it’s not working
It’s like a hundred thousand voices that just can’t sing
I reached out trying to love but I feel nothing
Oh my heart is numb

But with you, I feel again
And with you, I can feel again

But with you (I’m feeling better since you know me)
I feel again (I was a lonely soul but that’s the old me)
Yeah with you (I’m feeling better since you know me)
I can feel again (I was a lonely soul)

Woo hoo (Woo hoo)

(I’m feeling better since you know me)
(I was a lonely soul, but that’s the old me)
(I’m feeling better since you know me)
(I was a lonely soul, but that’s the old me)
(I’m feeling better since you know me)
(I was a lonely soul, but that’s the old me)

I’m feeling better ever since you know me
I was a lonely soul but that’s the old me
A little wiser now from what you showed me
Yeah, I feel again, feel again woo hoo
