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.

      I was in love with a man all through my high school years. It was on again off again and well he was the bad boy who just wasn't growing up but I loved him. Towards the end I was bigger then the whole situation and moved away and went to college and we remained friends. I always had him in my thoughts but met someone in college and moved on and we moved back to my home town. They became friends who would have thought. I eventually got married and well my exbf was suppose to be in the wedding and yet still he had not grown up and we kicked him out. All the while I was glad because I wouldn't have been saying I do to my husband I would have been looking at my exbf a groomsmen. Now we have always been friends but I just had that feeling I couldn't let go of. My marriage failed not on my part but because my husband couldn't be faithful. He even went running to my exbf and my exbf at this point I knew had finally grown. He said man...Ive been friends with her for way longer then you and I know her probably better then you and whatever you say she had to of had a good reason to end it so i don't want to here your pitty story. I later had saw my exbf and he told me of my ex husband I laughed as my unfaithful husband was just that and I am a very strong woman and don't deserve it. I even told my exbf I walked away from you which was the hardest choice in my life...walking away from my unfaithful husband was easy. We were friends we always talked and kept in touch. ANYHOW 2 years ago my exbf asked me out and we have been together since and getting married in august! He said I don't know why I never saw you the way you saw me but when I saw you that one day it was like it was the first time I ever saw you. I said well honestly I had to find myself and be happy with myself and you had to grow up and it took you a while but Im glad you finally did cause i have always and will always love you.

      SC - My heart goes out to you, particularly given that you have 3 3/4 kids together. I urge you to talk with a therapist or counselor, either together or apart. If he won't go, then you can pursue counseling for yourself as it provides an opportunity to gain understanding and personal insight as well as make wise choices regarding where to go from here. You're at a very vulnerable time in your life with your delivery so close at hand, and I recommend seeking such support and understanding.

      Thank you for giving me back some hope. My husband of 10 years just told me about 2 months ago he is no longer in love with me. He has met someone new and doesn't know what he wants to do about it. She is unavailable but he is still trying to pursue her I believe. We have 3 kids together and 1 due May 22. I have been unable to function as he is my 1st everything and this came out of nowhere. So thank you for giving me back some hope in my darkness and when I felt like giving up.

      My first love and I broke up 31 years ago. I married another guy and had 2 children. He had never married. I am in process of getting divorced and I have rekindled a love with my first love. It's better than it was 31 years ago. I was never happily married and thought of my first love all of the time. He has been waiting for me. We are together and stronger and more in love than ever. I WILL marry my first love.

      How is "No - I wanted to get back together but they didn't want to" not an option? I feel like that's the case for a lot of people. Like most people go through that at least once. Especially in our younger years

      18 years ago, I had a beautiful girlfriend and we loved each other dearly. I was in the military and had to serve a tour overseas. I made a choice to disappear from her life rather than ask her to give up everything (family, job, house etc) to follow me wherever the military sent me. Now Im retired, divorced and we both have kids. I reached out to her to if nothing more say hello and see if we could be friends. The feelings that we had then were still there and once we started talking it was like we picked up right where we left off. I never believed that second chances could happen (at least for me anyway), but its happening and our love for one another is growing everyday and I know that I have found my soulmate because we both truly belief that the way we feel about each other that we were truly meant to be together. I am truly blessed to have this beautiful woman in my life and I will never let go. I have truly met the ONE and I never thought I could feel this way ever!

      I fell in love with this beautiful brown eyed long curly brown haired girl when we were teenagers and have always been drawn back to each other the last 20 years, 8 years ago it became more than our usual back and forth and we spent 5 years together before I pissed away my dream in 2013. Well last new years eve I realized my life wasn't right without her, after all the pain I caused her it took time and being cautious with trusting me but we are finally on our way to making our dreams come true

      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...
