Start All Over” is a song by Miley Cyrus. It was released as the second and final single from her debut studio album, Meet Miley Cyrus. The album was released as a double-album alongside the second soundtrack for the Disney Channel original series, Hannah Montana, which Cyrus starred in. The song peaked at #68 on the Billboard Hot 100.

It is only one of three singles released by Cyrus (along with "Fly on the Wall” and “Who Owns My Heart”) to not receive at least a platinum status in the US.

Background Edit

The song was written and recorded by Canadian recording artist Fefe Dobson for her unreleased second album Sunday Love. Dobson explained on an August 2009 interview with MTV News,

"I wrote a song, she dug it, and she sang it. But I didn't want it for my record. It just wasn't right for me, and I just felt like it was better for someone else, and she does a great job on it. I was really impressed. She sounded great. I'm actually happier she did it than I did it."

Dobson sings background vocals, along with Anne Preven, on Cyrus' version of the song. Among other personnel are: Paul Bushnell for bass guitar, Scott Cutler and David Levita for electric guitar, Josh Freese for drumsand Jeff Turzo for keyboard. It is set in common time with a moderately fast tempo of 150 beats per minute. The song is written in a key of G major. Cyrus' vocals spans one octave, from G3 to B4. The song has the following chord progression, Dm7—Am—G5. In an interview with Access Hollywood on the set of the music video, Cyrus mentioned that the song was involved with romance and "the guy that I'm supposed to 'start all over'". Lael Loewenstein, writing for Variety, stated that "Breakout" and "Start All Over" "touch on the theme of self-reinvention".


Lyrics Edit

[Verse 1]
I have to wonder if this wave's too big to ride
Commit or not commit in such a crazy tide

[Pre-Chorus 1]
It's sooner than I thought, but you called me out
I lost control and there's no doubt
I'm gonna start all over

[Chorus]
Out of the fire and into the fire again
You make me want to forget
And start all over
Here I come, straight out of my mind or worse
Another chance to get burned
And start all over
I'm gonna start all over

[Verse 2]
Fantastic and romantic, all a big surprise
You got the warning, hesitation pushed aside

[Pre-Chorus 2]
It's sooner than I want, but you caught my heart
I guess I'm ready now to start
I'm gonna start all over

[Chorus]
Out of the fire and into the fire again
You make me want to forget
And start all over
Here I come, straight out of my mind or worse
Another chance to get burned
And start all over
I'm gonna start all over

[Bridge]
It's so easy, you disrupt me, can't complain
It's so easy, you disrupt me, can't complain
It's so easy, you disrupt me, can't complain
It's so easy (you disrupt me)
I'm gonna start all over (start all over)

[Chorus]
Out of the fire and into the fire again
You make me want to forget
And start all over
Here I come, straight out of my mind or worse
Another chance to get burned
And start all over

[Chorus]
Out of the fire and into the fire again
You make me want to forget
And start all over
Here I come, straight out of my mind or worse
Another chance to get burned
And start all over
I'm gonna start all over
