FC: Around the World | with Mom and Dad
1: We've Only Just Begun | We've only just begun to live, White lace & promises A kiss for luck and we're on our way. And yes, We've only Just Begun. Before the rising sun we fly, So many roads to choose We start out walking and learn to run, 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. 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 only Just Begun. July 15, 1944
