Lyrics of De La Capat/ All Over Again

Cantec de-ar fi viata mea
Vesel, trist, tot l-as canta
Nu as rata nicio nota
Rau de-ar fi l-as inota
Pan’ la mare l-as urma
Nu m-as opri niciodata
Stii ca
Viata n-are buton de rewind sa
Poti sa intorci ce-ai pierdut
Nu poti nici sa o pui pe pauza
Cand nu stii ce-i de facut

Daca maine noaptea n-ar mai avea vreo stea
Daca intruna vantul spre mine ar sufla
Tu ai fi motivul, tu ai fi motivul sa pot
Sa pot s-o iau de la capat
Daca maine cerul ar fi prea plin de nori
Daca nicio raza nu m-ar atinge-n zori
Tu ai fi motivul, tu ai fi motivul sa pot
Sa pot s-o iau de la capat

As zbura chiar si-o noapte-ntreaga
Spre zorii-n care ai fi tu
Ploile n-ar putea sa-nteleaga
De ce nu cad cand sunt tot ud

Daca maine noaptea n-ar mai avea vreo stea
Daca intruna vantul spre mine ar sufla
Tu ai fi motivul, tu ai fi motivul sa pot
Sa pot s-o iau de la capat
Daca maine cerul ar fi prea plin de nori
Daca nicio raza nu m-ar atinge-n zori
Tu ai fi motivul, tu ai fi motivul sa pot
Sa pot s-o iau de la capat
If my life was like a song
Happy, sad, not right or wrong
It would be all in the words…there
Swim a river’s length to be
Won’t stop till I reach the sea
Sooner or later I’ll get there
I swear
Life is not a rehearsal, don’t look back
You may lose what you dream
You can’t pause a decision, or change track,
When you don’t know what you mean.

If the stars tomorrow, no longer shine on us,
If a strong wind takes me, and I will turn to dust,
You will be the reason, you will be the reason to start,
To start all over again.
If the sky clouds over, with darkness never gone,
If the sun stays hidden, not waking in the dawn,
You will be the reason, you will be the reason to start,
To start all over again.

I would run through the night in the darkness
You are my sunshine that I seek
No one can stop my heart being restless
Hear it in the words I speak.

If the stars tomorrow, no longer shine on us,
If a strong wind takes me, and I will turn to dust,
You will be the reason, you will be the reason to start,
To start all over again.
If the sky clouds over, with darkness never gone,
If the sun stays hidden, not waking in the dawn,
You will be the reason, you will be the reason to start,
To start all over again.
To start all over again.
To start all over again.
To start all over again.
To start all over again.
