"At The Beginning" as written by and Steven Flaherty Lynn Ahrens....
We were strangers, starting out on a journey
Never dreaming, what we'd have to go through
Now here we are, I'm suddenly standing
At the beginning with you

No one told me, I was going to find you
Unexpected, what you did to my heart
When I lost hope
You were there to remind me
This is the start

And life is a road and I want to keep goin'
Love is a river I want to keep flowing
Life is a road now and forever wonderful journey
I'll be there when the world stops turning
I'll be there when the storm is through
In the end I want to be standing
At the beginning with you

We were strangers on a crazy adventure
Never dreaming how our dreams would come true
Now here we stand, unafraid of the future
At the beginning with you
(Repeat Chorus)

Knew there was somebody somewhere
I need love in the dark
Now I know my dream will live on
I've been waiting so long
Nothing is going to tear us apart


Life is a road and I want to keep goin
Love is a river I want to keep flowin

(Belldadny alone) Starting out on a journey
(Both continue it)
In the end I want to be standing at the beginning
With you

    General CommentThere's this groovy gal out there called Jennifer n she suggested i listen to this song so maybe we could play it together one day~
    What is means to me?.. *emMM..* to be honest, didnt think of that the 1st time i heard of it but got more obvious as i put it on repeat~ ^^
    The artists may have intended it to be interpreted as the "revival" of an old love~ i saw it as... an end of one and the begining of another~ =)
    which is pretty funky and made sense to me cuz.. *shrugz* in context maybe?
    anywayz!~ have a wonderful day everybardie!~ ^^!!
    (THIS SONG RULES!) V(^^)*waves*

    General CommentI remember hearing either Richard Marx or Donna Lewis say that this song was about, how, in relationships, things are always great at the beginning and after a while, the initial "flare" is lost. This song was about wishing to preserve that "flare".

    General CommentWhile I love the actual meaning to this song, this song means a lot to me for an entirely different reason. It reminds me of my younger days as a little kid when Anastasia was one of my favorite movies. <3 I remember rewinding the end credits over and over again just so I could listen to this song.

    Even as a kid, I had a great taste in music. :)
