Humperdinck, Engelbert - Absolute Beginner Lyrics



It's like taking that first breath or taking that first step
Dreaming that first dream finding out my voice can sing
Like a first heartbeat or opening up my eyes
Seeing the sunrise light an impossibly blue sky

It's like I'm waking up to a new brighter day
And I will never understand how you got me feeling this way

Cause I've been around the world
Pulled down a million stars
I've seen the dark side of the moon
I've been the heartbreaker
I've been the heartbroken
So how can it be when I'm with you
I'm an absolute beginner

I've held a hand before some kind of love I've sworn
Then I slowly watched those words lose their shine
But never felt this kind of wonder never felt it pull me under
And somehow lift me up at the same time

It's like I'm waking up to a new brighter day
And I will never understand how you got me feeling this way

Cause I've been around the world
Pulled down a million stars
I've seen the dark side of the moon
I've been the heartbreaker
I've been the heartbroken
So how can it be when I'm with you
I'm an absolute beginner

It's like I'm waking up to a new brighter day
And I will never understand how you got me feeling this way

Cause I've been around the world
Pulled down a million stars
I've seen the dark side of the moon
I've been the heartbreaker
I've been the heartbroken
So what I say should not be true
I'm an absolute beginner…
With you

    Thank you so much for sharing these from the new album, both the new songs, and the old ones, too.  It's so wonderful that Enge's voice is as strong and true as ever, and has helped to carry his fans (like me) for over 50 years.  (I can see this is a CD I must have and will probably get for myself for Christmas!)

    11/24/17 - 12:45 a.m. - Just tuned into the Tube and was delighted to hear EH's beautiful voice. I sometimes put on an EH Playlist and have it on all night and fall asleep to that voice and wake up to it -- nothing better!!!
