Right From The Start

Author: Lyrics Beth Williams, Music & Vocal Heather Cowles
The road rises up in front of me
But without you, what’s ‘round the bend
Guess I’ll never know if I just stand here
I gotta get past playing pretend

I take a step, heart half-way open
I’m kind of scared, but also hopin’
I’ll somehow find my way in the end

Chorus
Right from the start
You taught me to be strong
Right from the start
You showed me right from wrong
Right from the start
You always cheered me on
Right from the start
You were there, all along
Right from the start

But the future’s
bright in front of me
Because our dreams live on inside
Since you helped me love my imperfections
And supported everything I tried

Don’t know what I’m heading toward
But I’m happy going forward
Now feeling you’re along for the ride

Chorus
Right from the start
You taught me to be strong
Right from the start
You showed me right from wrong
Right from the start
You always cheered me on
Right from the start
Now I’m here, where I belong
Right from the start

Bridge:
Tuck away sad memories, but keep the lessons learned
When dreams and fate collide
You’ll find what you have earned

Chorus 3:
Right from the start
This feels so right
Right from the start
You knew I’d be alright
Right from the start
And finally, tonight
Let me thank you for everything.... you did....
Right from the start
