The first officially released recording of this song from the 1990 Highlights album.
A new life
What I wouldn't give to have a new life.
One thing I have learned as I go through life,
Nothing is for free along the way!
A new start,
that's the thing I need to give me new heart,
Half a chance in life to find a new part,
Just a simple role that I can play.
A new hope,
Something to convince me to renew hope.
A new day, bright enough to help me find my way.
A new chance,
One that maybe has a touch of romance.
Where can it be, the chance for me?
A new dream,
I have one I know that very few dream.
I would like to see that overdue dream,
Even though it never may come true
A new love,
Though I know there's no such thing as true love,
Even so, although I never knew love,
Still I feel that one dream is my due.
A new world,
This one thing I want to ask of you world,
Once, before it's time to say Adieu, world,
One sweet chance to prove the cynics wrong!.
A new life,
More and more I'm sure as I go through life,
Just to play the game and to pursue life,
Just to share its pleasures and belong,
That's what I've been here for all along,
Each day's a brand new life!
