"Absolute Beginners" as written by and Paul John Weller....
I've nothing much to offer
There's nothing much to take
I'm an absolute beginner
But I'm absolutely sane
As long as we're together
The rest can go to hell
I absolutely love you
But we're absolute beginners
With eyes completely open
But nervous all the same

If our love song
Could fly over mountains
Could laugh at the ocean
Just like the films
There's no reason
To feel all the hard times
To lay down the hard lines
It's absolutely true

Nothing much could happen
Nothing we can't shake
Oh, we're absolute beginners
With nothing much at stake
As long as you're still smiling
There's nothing more I need
I absolutely love you
But we're absolute beginners
But if my love is your love
We're certain to succeed

If our love song
Could fly over mountains
Sail over heartaches
Just like the films
If there's reason
To feel all the hard times
To lay down the hard lines
It's absolutely true

    General CommentI think its a bit harsh to criticise the creativity in this song.

    Its certainly easier to appreceiate the depth in a song with more gravity, such as Cygnet Committe etc

    This song is simple , short and optimistic
    I think one of the stongest and most powerful pieces of advice I have ever heard is "Love More"

    And I think this song beautifully captures the depth of that thought. It is unashamedly optimistic and innocent but not naive

    An optimistic backlash to the often expressed "Ah but we all thought that when we were your age" and "Ah yeah but you're still in your honeymoon period"
