Thank you Iz

Music has always been an important aspect of my life. I remember listening to my parents LP's as a kid before I could buy my own. As a teenager and young adult I would spend hours at Tower Records on Sunset going through the 1000's of records snapping up all the latest bands, vocals and whatever else I heard on the radio or at the local disco, The Odyssey. It seems that every time I had a problem or issue Donna, Whitney, Boy, Debbie and the rest  were ready with a musical interlude to help me out. Listening to them always helped my mood. 


Iz (Israel Kamakawiwo'ole) is an incredible soul. His voice is that of an angel. Recently I've rediscovered this little gem that has fit so perfectly into my life ... thank you Iz for your sweet voice and Mitchell Phillip for giving Iz the words to sing. 


Starting Over Again 


Starting all over again is going to be rough
For us, we're going to make it
Starting all over as friends is going be tough
On us, we gotta face it

We lost what we had
That would hurt us so bad
Set us back a thousand years
But we going to make it up
Though I know it's going to be tough
To erase the hurt and fears

Starting all over again is going to be hard
But I pray to the Lord to help us make it
Starting all over again is going to slow
But we both know, we gonna make it

We gotta take life as it comes
Never fuss about it, what's right or wrong
It's an uphill climb, to the finish line
We gonna try, we gonna try, just one more time

We gotta take life as it comes
Don't make any fuss about it, what's right or wrong
We gonna make it up, though I know it's gonna be rough
To erase the hurt and fears

Starting all over again is going to be rough
For us, we're going to make it
Starting all over as friends is going be tough
On us, we gotta face it
