Begin Again

I recently watched the 2013 film Begin Again for the first time and LOVED it! ❤

When it comes to movies, I usually prefer action films. 🙂 However, when I saw that this movie starred Keira Knightley (an AMAZING actress) and Mark Ruffalo (an always FANTASTIC actor who’s from Kenosha, Wisconsin—not too far from where I grew up 😉 ) AND that it was about MUSIC (my PASSION! 🙂 ), I thought that I would give the film a chance. 🙂

I am SO GLAD I did because I sincerely enjoyed every moment of this film!

In case you haven’t seen the film, I don’t want to give anything away.

What I will say is that I related so well to Gretta’s (Keira Knightley) passion for creating music that is true to herself (as opposed to creating music with the hopes of pleasing others). ❤

One song that I really enjoyed in this film was “Lost Stars.”

Lyrics:

Please, don’t see
Just a boy caught up in dreams and fantasies
Please, see me
Reaching out for someone I can’t see
Take my hand
Let’s see where we wake up tomorrow
Best laid plans
Sometimes are just a one night stand
I’ll be damned
Cupid’s demanding back his arrow
So let’s get drunk on our tears
And, God, tell us the reason
Youth is wasted on the young
It’s hunting season and the lambs are on the run
Searching for meaning
But are we all lost stars
Trying to light up the dark?
Who are we?
Just a speck of dust within the galaxy
Woe is me
If we’re not careful turns into reality
Don’t you dare let our best memories bring you sorrow
Yesterday I saw a lion kiss a deer
Turn the page
Maybe we’ll find a brand new ending
Where we’re dancing in our tears
And, God, tell us the reason
Youth is wasted on the young
It’s hunting season
And the lambs are on the run
Searching for meaning
But are we all lost stars
Trying to light up the dark?
And I thought I saw you out there crying
And I thought I heard you call my name
And I thought I heard you out there crying
Just the same
Oh yeah, yeah yeah yeah yeah
God, give us the reason
Youth is wasted on the young
It’s hunting season and this lamb is on the run
Searching for meaning
But are we all lost stars
Trying to light up the dark?
And I thought I saw you out there crying
And I thought I heard you call my name
And I thought I heard you out there crying
But are we all lost stars
Trying to light up the dark?
But are we all lost stars
Trying to light up the dark?

Kiera Knightley’s voice is so beautiful. ❤ What do you think of this song?

This film is about finding your truth and accepting when it is time to let others go so that they can find theirs. What a great message. ❤
