Here I Go Again

WhiteSnake was one of the biggest big hair bands of the 1980s for me . “Here I Go Again” was their best work and their biggest hit as it reached number one in the country over 20 years ago in 1987! What people automatically think about when it comes to this song is the beautiful Tawny Kitaen gyrating across the hood of a sports car in the music video. Granted, I’m not complaining about that visual, not in the least! I just believe the song deserves more respect than that! It is a powerful song in many ways. I love the passion David Coverdale conveys in the song.

The lyrics are very special because it deals with searching for one’s self and the meaning of life itself. We all find ourselves in that position and I think this song will forever be extra meaningful for me because it came along during my soul-searching period. I still get chills whenever I hear this song and stop whatever I’m doing to listen and remember. I also smile knowing how much I’ve learned since those days and how much more I’ve yet to learn.

Here’s the famous music video

 

Here are the special lyrics

I dont know where Im going
But, I sure know where Ive been
Hanging on the promises
In songs of yesterday
An Ive made up my mind,
I aint wasting no more time
But, here I go again
Here I go again

Tho I keep searching for an answer,
I never seem to find what Im looking for
Oh lord, I pray
You give me strength to carry on,
cos I know what it means
To walk along the lonely street of dreams

An here I go again on my own
Goin down the only road Ive ever known,
Like a drifter I was born to walk alone
An Ive made up my mind
I aint wasting no more time

Im just another heart in need of rescue,
Waiting on loves sweet charity
An Im gonna hold on
For the rest of my days,
cos I know what it means
To walk along the lonely street of dreams

An here I go again on my own
Goin down the only road Ive ever known,
Like a drifter I was born to walk alone
An Ive made up my mind
I aint wasting no more time

But, here I go again,
Here I go again,
Here I go again,
Here I go…

An Ive made up my mind,
I aint wasting no more time

An here I go again on my own
Goin down the only road Ive ever known,
Like a drifter I was born to walk alone
cos I know what it means
To walk along the lonely street of dreams

An here I go again on my own
Goin down the only road Ive ever known,
Like a drifter I was born to walk alone
An Ive made up my mind
I aint wasting no more time…

But, here I go again,
Here I go again,
Here I go again,
Here I go,
Here I go again…
