Song Lyrics

Could We Start Again, Please? Song Lyrics


MARY MAGDALENE

I've been living to see you.
Dying to see you, but it shouldn't be like this.
This was unexpected,
What do I do now?
Could we start again please?
I've been very hopeful, so far.
Now for the first time, I think we're going wrong.
Hurry up and tell me,
This is just a dream.
Oh could we start again please?

PETER

I think you've made your point now.
You've even gone a bit too far to get the message home.
Before it gets too frightening,
We ought to call a vote,
So could we start again please?

ALL

I've been living to see you.
Dying to see you, but it shouldn't be like this.
This was unexpected,
What do I do now?
Could we start again please?
I think you've made your point now.
You've even gone a bit too far to get the message home.
Before it gets too frightening,
We ought to call a vote,
So could we start again please?
Could we start again please? (Repeat 5 times)

MARY MAGDALENE

Could we start again?

"Could We Start Again, Please?" from "Jesus Christ Superstar" is a poignant and reflective pirce that captures a moment of doubt and desire for renewal among Jesus's followers, particularly Mary Magdalene and Peter. The song expresses a longing to return to a simpler time before their current turmoil and uncertainty.

Mary Magdalene's part conveys a deep emotional conflict. She sings, “I've been living to see uou. Dying to see you, but it shouldn't be like this,” highlighting her distress over the unexpected turn of events surrounding Jesus's mission. Her words, “This was unexpected, what do I do now?” reveal her confusion and a yearning for guidance in the face of unforeseen challenges.

Mary's chorus, “Could we start again please?” is a plea for a return to an earlier time when things were clearer and perhaps more hopeful. It reflects a desire to reset the current situation, to go back to the beginning and perhaps choose a different path, or to better prepare for the challenges they are now facing.

Peter's verse adds another dimension to this sentiment. He acknowledges that the situation has escalated beyond what was anticipated, “You've even gone a bit too far to get the message home.” His suggestion to “call a vote” indicates a desire to reassess their course of action collectively and democratically, in contrast to the seemingly predestined path they are currently on.

The song as a whole resonates with the theme of doubt and the human desire for control in the face of destiny or divine plan. It reflects the natural human response to uncertainty and crisis - a wish to pause, reconsider, and start afresh with the hope of a better outcome.

"Could We Start Again, Please?" thus serves as a moment of introspection and vulnerability, capturing the essence of human doubt in the face of larger, uncontrollable forces, and the longing for a second chance to make things right.
