Second Chances: The Relationship Do-Over

Never say "never" when it comes to second chances at love. You might believe love has fizzled. You might have gone your separate ways, putting time and distance and perhaps even other lovers between you.

But if you still have positive or longing memories about your ex, it's possible that love could reignite between you just when you thought the flame had nearly burned out. I've known people who divorced, married other partners for brief stints, then remarried each other. Stranger things have happened. It's amazing what forgiveness and second chances can do.

If you're thinking of getting back together with a past love, make a Reunited Love Playlist. We've got a long list of pop, rock, and country songs to get you started.

1. "Whatever It Takes" by Lifehouse

Although we can only guess what the man in this 2007 song did to disappoint his sweetheart, his apology is sincere and contrite. Committed to making their relationship his first priority, he asks for another chance:

I'll do whatever it takes
To turn this around
I know what's at stake
I know that I've let you down.
And if you give me a chance
Believe that I can change
I'll keep us together whatever it takes.

2. "Let's Stay Together" by Al Green

The narrator in this classic 1972 song explains to his lover that she makes him feel brand new. Are they at a fork in the road in their relationship? He seeks to spend his life loving her, good times and bad, happy and sad. While other people get caught in a repeated cycle of breakups and makeups he just wants to tough it out together.

3. "Picture" by Kid Rock (featuring Sheryl Crow)

The estranged couple in this country-crossover song from 2002 have cheated on one another. Evidently they didn't mean it, however, because thoughts about getting back together consume them. A photograph of happier times reminds them that they are better together than apart.

4. "Austin" by Blake Shelton

The woman in this touching 2001 country song left her lover without saying goodbye then waited a whole year before calling him. Although she left no forwarding information, the man assumed his honey went back to Austin because she had repeatedly talked about the city.

When she finally called his number, she heard an outgoing message on his answering machine that ended with, "And P.S. If this is Austin I still love you." It's a melt-your-heart beautiful song that shows that forgiveness and love can lead you back to where you were always supposed to be.

5. "Reunited by Peaches & Herb

Regret and longing are a recipe for reuniting with a sweetheart you still love deeply. In this 1978 ballad, a couple had a quarrel after he strayed. The breakup made them both realize that they needed one another and were willing to put their relationship above all else.

6. "Baby Come Back" by Player

This 1977 hit is a classic "please let's just work it out" song. The narrator spends all his time and money trying to forget the woman whom he is no longer dating.

He tries in vain to put on a brave face and wear a smile while his heart aches for her. The heartbroken man begs his ex for one more chance:

Baby come back, any kind of fool could see
There was something in everything about you.
Baby come back, you can blame it all on me
I was wrong, and I just can't live without you.

7. "Hard To Say I'm Sorry" by Chicago

Even lovers may need to take a break from one another, particularly when one of them has made a mistake that violates the other's trust. So says this 1982 song about one lover who is desperately trying to make up for past transgressions.

He promises to make it up to her and do right. Would you take him back?

8. "Change My Mind" by One Direction

In this 2012 song, a couple has broken up, but they're spending time together at a party and there's still chemistry between them. As everyone else leaves, they find themselves laughing, dancing, taking photos, and wondering whether they should press rewind on their broken relationship.

9. "Un-break My Heart" by Toni Braxton

Released in 1996, this Grammy Award-winning song is a soul-searing request from a heartbroken woman to her former sweetheart. She begs him to come back into her life.

According to her, rekindling their love affair can undo the tears, pain and loneliness that set in when he left her. Does she seem too desperate, or is it just me?

10. "Love Won't Run" Steve Holy

The narrator in this touching 2011 country ballad senses that his beloved is about to tell him painful news that would tear apart most couples. He recognizes that she is scared about confessing what she's done.

He reassures her, however, that their love is stronger than any mistake she may have made. Urging her to lay it all on the line, he promises to stand beside her and help repair their relationship:

I won’t run, and I won’t hide.
I won’t turn away. I just wanna make things right.
Baby, I’m right here, and I ain't going anywhere.

11. "Let's Just Fall In Love Again" by Jason Castro

Wouldn't it be nice if lovers in turmoil could ask for a relationship do-over, going back to the very beginning of their courtship? That's what this 2010 is about: falling in love all over again, right from the moment they met. Imagine the things that you'd do differently knowing what you know now.

12. "Come A Little Closer" by Dierks Bentley

This sizzling country ballad from 2005 centers on an estranged couple. The man wants his former sweetheart to step a little closer — to bridge the distance that divides them — so they can touch. He hopes that there is still a chance that they might reunite and figures that mutual forgiveness might be found by "strippin' it down back to the basics" of sweet surrender.

If we loved again, I swear I'd love you right.
If we loved again, I swear I'd love you right. | Source

13. "Pillow Talk" by Zayn Malik

This hot 2016 song emphasizes that every couple has arguments that divide them. However, their shared physical and emotional intimacy can reunite them. The bed they share represents the microcosm of their relationship: both pure and raw, paradise and a war zone.

14. "Let's Be Us Again" by Lonestar

In this 2004 country song, the narrator messed up and said some things he now regrets. He implores his ex to please forgive him and take him back. He'll do anything if they could reconcile.

15. "I Won't Give Up" by Jason Mraz

The narrator in this 2012 hit wants his partner to know that he'll give her the space she needs and will wait patiently while she soul searches. He won't give up on her or walk away because their differences have a lot to teach them. Sounds like he wants to be in it for the long haul, but does she?

16. "Glass" by Thompson Square

In trying to stay together, a couple must attempt to see through each other's flaws and pick up the pieces when their relationship threatens to shatter. This 2011 song highlights the emotional baggage that each person acquires along their life journey, making them fragile and sometimes sharp and edgy.

In reuniting, a partner must develop a deeper understanding of their lover's human vulnerability and imperfections:

I'll let you look inside me, through the stains and through the cracks,
And in the darkness of this moment,
You see the good and bad.

Sometimes what you’re searching for is right where you left it.
Sometimes what you’re searching for is right where you left it. | Source

17. "Crazy Girl" by Eli Young Band

The narrator in this 2011 song reminds his partner that he's committed to staying with her. She feels insecure in the relationship after a big fight and assumes their relationship is over because he literally walks away.

However, the narrator explains that arguing is just part of being a couple:

Crazy girl, don't you know that I love you?
And I wouldn't dream of goin' nowhere
Silly woman, come here, let me hold you
Have I told you lately?
I love you like crazy, girl

18. "It's Not Over" by Daughtry

The man in this 2006 rock hit just wants to start over with his ex. The breakup has taken everything away from him. Feeling depressed, he's having trouble finding positive meaning in life without his partner. If given the opportunity for a relationship do-over, he swears he'll do right by her this time.

19. "The Man I Want To Be" by Chris Young

When all else has failed, the brokenhearted fellow in this 2009 song asks for heavenly intervention in reuniting him with his ex and making him a better man. It'll take a miracle to reunite them, but he is committed to changing his ways:

I've spent my whole life
Gettin' it all wrong
And I sure could use your help
'Cause from now on
I want to be a good man
A do like I should man
I want to be the kind of man
The mirror likes to see.

20. "Never Gonna Let You Go" by Serio Mendes

If you realize that you've made a mistake by letting the love of your life go, then you need to fix it if you can, right? This 1983 ballad is about the regret of letting an ex go and the goal of reconciliation.

The second time around, the narrator promises not to break his partner's heart or take her for granted. He swears that this time it's a forever thing, and their love will be much sweeter than before.

As soon as I saw this hub's title in my alerts, I immediately thought of Peaches & Herb's "Reunited." Glad to see you included that 70s classic. Hope you're having a relaxing, labor-less Labor Day Weekend! Cheers!

FaithReaper - Those two songs might be my favorites as well. I wanted to put "Baby Come Back" in the first slot, but the video was not the best quality. An old boyfriend used to jokingly sing that to me because he knew we were on the outs. And the song "Austin" makes me wonder what the backstory was. Your relationship is such a model for others, marrying your high school sweetheart and being happy after all these years. I'm glad you know nothing about the getting back together thing. May you forever stay that way!

Linda - Thank you for your kind endorsement. I liked her quote as well. Sometimes I wonder why people obsess over one person when there are so many options in the world -- 7 billion and counting. If it was meant to be the person will come back. Mine did and I married him!

Hi Flourish,

Another fantastic list here! Well, I can't say I've ever had a redo because I'm still with the original LOL ...that would be a difficult thing in my mind because for one to "break up", it had to have been pretty bad. But I've never been in that situation, so I really can't say.

I love your descriptions of what the songs entail, as they are what really makes these hubs ...your writing.

I love that Austin one by Blake Shelton for one of the more recent ones and Baby Come Back, but so many are great blasts from the past.

Well done once again!

'Good Old Days'

"Good Old Days Are Here Again"

The good old days are here again,

My baby's coming home

She'll soon be back within my arms

Yes, back where she belongs.

The lonely nights are gone for good,

Like castles in the air

The good old days are here again

God answered all my prayers.

The train is stoppin' at the station

I can hardly stand this waitin' here she comes

Watch her as she runs to meet me

Trembling lips that strain to greet me.

God she's warm.

The lonely nights are gone for good,

Like castles in the air

The good old days are here again

God answered all my prayers.

The lonely nights are gone...



Blessings my friend
