Restart - Sam Smith



The Experience: Sam Smith's Restart sweetly sets the stage from breaking up and moving on... to restart your life. 

Official Video: Waiting.

The meaning of Restart starts with the breakup, then has the ex 'lightin' up my phone' trying to 'start up again'. Behind the simple 'I'm better on my own' of a breakup song is Sam living the difference between feelings and wisdom. Yes, he felt for her, and she still feels for him. But Sam knows 'the truth is I'm better on my own' and moves on. People who live on intense feelings alone live intense loves, intense breakups, and then start the whole cycle again. People who live with and in the truth can also feel intensely, but they have the extra strength to do the right thing and move on, to restart

Ask yourself: What has more push in my life: feelings or knowing the truth?


LYRICS:
It was a Monday night when you told me it was over babe
And by the Friday night, I knew that I would be okay
Don't say it was a good thing
Don't say it was the right thing to do
Don't say it was the best thing for the both of us
When I'm the one playing the fool

What do you want from me when I just wanna restart
You keep coming back for me when you're the one who tore us apart
And the truth is I'm better on my own
And I'm the one to leave it apart
So let me restart
So let me restart
So let me restart

You've been lightin' up my phone
Worried that I'll be alone tonight
Wanna make sure that I'm fine
But baby you're not on my mind, no more
I know it was the best thing for the both of us
Cause you're the one who looks like a fool

What do you want from me when I just wanna restart
You keep coming back for me when you're the one who tore us apart
And the truth is I'm better on my own
And I'm the one to leave it apart
So let me restart
So let me restart
So let me restart

So let me restart

What do you want from me when I just wanna restart
You keep coming back for me when you're the one who tore us apart
And the truth is I'm better on my own
And I'm the one to leave it apart
So let me restart
So let me restart
So let me restart
So let me restart
So let me restart
Hmmmm
