When I'm with you
It doesn't matter where we are
Or what we're doing
I'm with you, that's all that matters

Time passes much too quickly
When we're together laughing
I wish I could sing it to you, whoa oh
I wish I could sing it to you

Oh oh oh oh oh oh woah oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh oh woah oh oh oh
Mostly I'm silent, hmm

When I kiss you
I feel a thousand different feelings
A cover of chills
All over my body
And when I feel them
I quickly try to decide which one
I should try to put into words, woah oh
Try to put into words

Oh oh oh oh oh oh woah oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh oh woah oh oh oh

Only the beginning
Only just the start
Oh oh oh oh oh oh woah oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh oh woah oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh oh woah oh oh oh

    General CommentI think some of they lyrics are missing, but this has to be my favorite Chicago so far and maybe ever! It was like the first song I ever heard, and I like the starting lyrics "When I'm with you, it doesn't matter where we are or what we're doing. I'm with you, that's all that matters" that's so sweet

    General CommentAwsome love song!
    When I kiss you, I deel a thousand different feelings...Only the beginning of what I want to feel forever...
    Also, I love that percussion thing at the end, but the radio stations always cut it off.

    General CommentI've always thought this was one of Chicago's best love songs. Why? Several reasons.

    1. It's got a good melody.
    2. Good rhythm/beat.
    3. Good lyrics.

    But most of all, it's not sappy, crappy, ballady, Peter Cetera stuff that dominated the 1980's. The story is so simple, sincere, and sweet. That's the main thing that sells it for me. It's not about how hot someone is, or "banging some chick", or anything like that. It's simply about the enjoyment and love of being with this person. If you ask me, that's a lot of what love is.

    General CommentThis song is about the start of relationships. Where you feel lucky to be around the person. And hence the title "Beginnings".

    And Mattbluhalofan, I want to add to your list:
    4. Great use of horns in a genre where they are thought to be obsolete

    General CommentThis is one of my favorite Chicago songs. It's just sooo awesome. I LOVE Terry Kath's voice, hell, I love every voice that has played a part in Chicago's history, especially Peter Cetera. Great song!

    General CommentI agree, definitely one of their best. It's so original compared to much of their typical sounding songs. I'm honestly not a big fan of Chicago; the band or the city. But this song does rock
