Lyrics: New Life


Recorded at: Kingways Studios, New Orleans in 1994-1995

 

Suddenly everything is fainting
Falling from a broken ladder's rung
There's a jolt exhilarating from the phone I'm holding
I hear the words of what I'll become
How eager the hands that reach for love
'Cause now there's a new life to behold
And its the biggest part of my life to unfold
'Cause now she's telling me she'll have my baby
And a faithful father I am to be
When I'm looking into the eyes of our own baby
Will it bring new life into me?
Deep inside must defy arrangement
I've been a stumblin' from the startin' blocks 'til now
And I'll always try to justify the way I've been behaving
Should I teach one not to know how?
How to live in a world we live in now
'Cause there's a beautiful life to behold
And its the biggest part of my life to unfold
'Cause now she's telling me she'll have my baby
And a father figure I am to be
When I'm looking into the eyes of our own baby
Will it bring new life into me?
Oh please
Bring new life
Bring new life into me

 " 'New Life' hit me flat. I liked what he was saying lyrically--I thought it was really sweet. But the song itself, I never really  loved that one. That was Brad's music that he wrote--it was about Shannon becoming a father. It was poignantly written about what that's like. After becoming one recently, I went back to the song and really appreciated it."
Rogers Stevens from the book "A devil on One Shoulder and an Angel on The Other" by Greg Prato
