Lyrics[]

We've only just begun to live
White lace and promises
A kiss for luck and we're on our way
And yes, we've just begun

Before the rising sun, we fly
So many roads to choose
We start out walking and learn to run
Yes, we've just begun

Sharing horizons that are new to us
Watching for signs along the way
Talking it over, just the two of us
Working together day to day, together

And when the evening comes, we smile
So much of life ahead
We'll find a place where there's room to grow
And yes, we've just begun

Sharing horizons that are new to us
Watching the signs along the way
Talking it over, just the two of us
Working together day to day, together, together
