Meaning Behind the Song
The majority of listeners will always look forward to songs about love. And that’s very much the case in this Josh Turner song. But what’s the underlying message that draws in the listeners?
The protagonist of “Another Try” only communicates his desire for his ex to return. He wanted to win her back by making the mistakes he had made in the past, right?
Even though he made a list of all his transgressions, he ultimately could not win back his lover. After all, if it were you, would you still accept the person who hurt you and accept them wholeheartedly all over again? Most probably not.
