"The Beginning" as written by and Jason Wade....
Tainted
Has our love gone cold
In a place that's bitter and broken
Tasted of a world I know
Surely there must be something better
Something forever

Hello
From the world below
I'm watching the sun burning
As the road is slowly turning
Well I know
That in letting go
I'm learning how to live
Through a life I have to give

Walking
Past the city lights
Silence can be so disturbing
You'll find me standing in the night
The stars never seem so unending
So unending

Hello
From the world below
While I'm watching the sun burning
As the road is slowly turning
Well I know
That in letting go
I'm learning how to live
Through a life I have to give

But we painted
Whitewashed everything
When all that remains are
Shadows of the stains
Tell me
Where did we go wrong
Can we just move on

Hello
From the world below
While I'm watching the sun burning
As the road is slowly turning
When I know
That in letting go
I'm learning how to live
Through a life I have to give

Hello
To the world below
While I'm watching the world spinning
This night seems so unending
Well I'll follow
To a place I know
That's only the beginning
Start over after ending

    General CommentI think the melody is my favorite part of this song. It is a really beautiful song, about life after love. Very well done, and very beautiful...typical Lifehouse!

    General CommentI don't think this has to do with a breakup or being in love. I think it has to do with life itself. how you're trying to change your image and start from scratch. Beautifully interesting song!!!!!

    General CommentI just thought I'd point out that in the chorus it's 'as the load is slowly turning' ... i've got the CD.. =]

    This is such an amazing song. I agree with CosmicWolf and AiSoreru and I think it's about a break up and trying to move on with life after and relationship and have a fresh start
