Whitesnake leader David Coverdale wrote this song in Portugal. While it’s typically thought of as an inspiring song about facing your challenges head-on, it’s really a song about heartbreak and the loneliness that comes with it. The song documents the breakdown of Coverdale’s first marriage to Julia, who he tied the knot with in 1974.

Whitesnake – Here I Go Again Lyrics:
No, I don’t know where I’m going.
But, I sure know where I’ve been.
Hanging on the promises.
In songs of yesterday.
An’ I’ve made up my mind,
I ain’t wasting no more time.
Here I go again.
Here I go again.

Tho’ I keep searching for an answer,.
I never seem to find what I’m looking for.
Oh Lord, I pray.
You give me strength to carry on,.
‘Cos I know what it means.
To walk along the lonely street of dreams.

An’ here I go again on my own.
Goin’ down the only road I’ve ever known,.
Like a drifter I was born to walk alone.
An’ I’ve made up my mind.
I ain’t wasting no more time.

I’m just another heart in need of rescue,
Waiting on love’s sweet charity.
An’ I’m gonna hold on.
For the rest of my days,
‘Cos I know what it means.
To walk along the lonely street of dreams.

An’ here I go again on my own.
Goin’ down the only road I’ve ever known,
Like a drifter I was born to walk alone.
An’ I’ve made up my mind.
I ain’t wasting no more time.

But, here I go again,
Here I go again,
Here I go again,
Here I go….

‘Cos I know what it means.
To walk along the lonely street of dreams.

An’ here I go again on my own.
Goin’ down the only road I’ve ever known,
Like a drifter I was born to walk alone.
An’ I’ve made up my mind,
I ain’t wasting no more time..

An’ here I go again on my own.
Goin’ down the only road I’ve ever known,
Like a drifter I was born to walk alone.
‘Cos I know what it means.
To walk along the lonely street of dreams.

An’ here I go again on my own.
Goin’ down the only road I’ve ever known,
Like a drifter I was born to walk alone.
Goin’ down the only road I’ve ever known…
