About Start Over

"Start Over" is a song by American recording artist Beyoncé taken from her fourth studio album, 4 (2011). It was written by Shea Taylor, Beyoncé Knowles and Ester Dean and produced by Taylor and Knowles. The song's development was motivated by the fact that Knowles traveled around the world and experienced different cultures which inspired love and purity inside her. A mid-tempo pop, pop rock and soul-influenced R&B ballad, "Start Over" finds the female protagonist affirming her individuality and expressing her love for a man with whom she attempts to start a relationship all over again. Knowles' vocals are accompanied by electric and enticing beats; the song's instrumentation includes drums and synthesizers. "Start Over" received mixed to positive reviews from music critics, who noted that the song was quite similar to Knowles' older material. The placement of the song on the track-listing was criticized by critics, who thought that it made "Start Over" barely distinguishable. However, the beats arrangement and the vulnerability of Knowles' vocals were highlighted by many critics. Following the release of 4, "Start Over" charted at number 43 on the South Korea Gaon International Chart based on downloads alone.

I feel weak
We've been here before
'Cause I feel we keep going back and forth
Maybe it's over
Maybe we're through
But I honestly can't say I still love you

Maybe we reached the mountain peak
And there's no more left to climb
And maybe we lost the magic piece
And we're both too blind to find

Let's start over
Let's give love their wings
Let's start over
Stop fighting 'bout the same old things
Let's start over
We can't let our good love die
Maybe we can start all over
Give love another life

I can see that we're not happy here
So why would we keep pretending when there's nothing there
Maybe you like it, well I don't
And maybe you settle
Well I won't

Maybe we reached the mountain peak
And there's no more left to climb
And maybe we lost the magic piece
And we're both too blind to find

Let's start over
Let's give love their wings
Let's start over
Stop fighting 'bout the same old things
Let's start over
We can't let our good love die
Maybe we can start all over
And give love another life

I know that this will hurt you
I know you'll cry
I know I called you selfish
But that's a lie
I feel I know what's best for us
Let's

Start over
And let's give love their wings
Let's start over
I'm tired of fighting 'bout the same old thing
Let's start over
We both know that this love won't die
Maybe we can start all over
And give love another life
