“There's been so many times in my life where I've had to start over once again, whether I felt like I've hit rock bottom, or after a breakup.”

DEMI LOVATO

 The title came from two tracks: "Dancing" evokes Adele's Skyfall theme. "Starting Over" sounds more Stevie Nicks. Lovato calls it "the perfect driving song."

This ballad echoes a key scene in her documentary in which Lovato wakes up post-overdose, temporarily blind, and can't recognize her sister sitting at her bedside.
