Anya and Dimitri Dance

At the Beginning

"At the Beginning" is a song from the Anastasia soundtrack, and its first single. It was performed by American singer-songwriter Richard Marx, and Welsh singer-songwriter Donna Lewis. The song was written by Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty. It made its debut on the Anastasia VHS, featuring a music video. The song was never included in either the DVD or Blu-Ray releases of Anastasia. It features in the credits of Anastasia.

The song casts light onto the development of Anastasia and Dimitri's relationship, highlighting how they started as strangers and how unexpected their love was.

It's also a reference to the Dowager Empress Marie final line in the movie, where Sophie emotionally exclaims how Anastasia and Dimitri eloping is 'A perfecting ending.' to which the Empress replies that 'No. It's a perfect beginning.'

LyricsEdit

FEMALE: We were strangers

Starting out on a journey

Never dreaming

What we'd have to go through.

Now here we are

And I'm suddenly standing

At the beginning with you.

MALE: No one told me

I was going to find you

Unexpected

What you did to my heart.

When I lost hope,

BOTH: You were there to remind us

This is the start.

And life is boat

And I wanna keep going.

Love is a river

I wanna 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 wanna be standing

At the beginning with you.

FEMALE: We were strangers

On a crazy adventure

MALE: Never dreaming

How our dreams would come true.

BOTH: Now here we stand

Unafraid of the future

At the beginning with you.

And life is road

And I wanna keep going.

Love is a river

I wanna 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 wanna be standing

At the beginning with you.

I knew there was somebody somewhere

Like me alone in the dark.

Now I know my dream will live on

I've been waiting so long

Nothing's gonna tear us apart.

And life is road

And I wanna keep going.

Love is a river

I wanna 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 wanna be standing

At the beginning with you.

Life is a road and I wanna keep going

Love is a river I wanna keep going on...

FEMALE: Starting out on a journey.

BOTH: Life is a road and I wanna keep going

Love is a river I wanna keep going

In the end I wanna be standing

At the beginning

With you.
