Song Description

Lookin' back for the reasons why things are the way they are, and observations on the years of a relationship.

Story Behind the Song

I wrote the verse of this song a long time ago, but had never really got a chorus idea that I felt sat in the right place until a few years later.


I'd Do It All Again (in a Minute)
©1997 m.e.mccallum all rights reserved
Verse1 She was a good thief
She took my heart so easy
But she was a mean friend
She would not give it back to me
Made me love her
Made me need her
Then she left me with no reason to go
And every reason to stay

Chorus: But I'd do it all again in a minute
Same girl walkin' by same look in her eye
I'd do it all again
Do it all again in a minute
This life is what we make it
So don't you go and wonder why
I'd do it all again,
Do it all again in a minute

Verse 2 High school sweethearts
Crazy adventures on a head strong night
That's where the beat starts
When you're young and afraid
Of what passion and love might do
How they might change you
Into someone that you can't handle
Forces you don't know
Repeat Chorus.

Mid 8 So who could say
That love wouldn't happen again
Well I would take my chances
Just the same as I did back then...

Verse3 Like fire in the dead of night
Her vision is before my eyes
She could lead me to my destruction
And I'd be loving her more

Cause love shows no mercy
Love has nothing to say when you're
Heading in the wrong direction
Down a road of no return

Rpt Chorus x2
