Absolute Beginners
David Bowie Lyrics


I've nothing much to offer
There's nothing much to take
I'm an absolute beginner
But I'm absolutely sane
As long as we're together
The rest can go to hell
I absolutely love you
But we're absolute beginners
With eyes completely open
But nervous all the same

If our love song
Could fly over mountains
Could laugh at the ocean
Just like the films
There's no reason
To feel all the hard times
To lay down the hard lines
It's absolutely true

Nothing much could happen
Nothing we can't shake
Oh, we're absolute beginners
With nothing much at stake
As long as you're still smiling
There's nothing more I need
I absolutely love you
But we're absolute beginners
But if my love is your love
We're certain to succeed

If our love song
Could fly over mountains
Sail over heartaches
Just like the films
If there's reason
To feel all the hard times
To lay down the hard lines
It's absolutely true

@Aleksandra Tomic An absolute beginner can make innocent mistakes. It's expected. Cambell would call it the beginning of a hero's journey.

Back in 1985 I was staying in a youth hostel in London near where the cafe that is used starting at 3:16 of the video. I just happened to go out for a night walk and saw some bright lights near the cafe and David Bowie and the Zebra lady were working on the video. Between takes he came over to a few of us and talked for a few minutes. He was a very cool guy. When the director called him over he said "Sorry guys, I've got to go". He gave me a couple of autographs. I have old slide photos somewhere that I took while the video was being made. It was a very cool experience and now a nice memory.

It makes me so happy when I hear this song. I saw the VHS of Absolute beginners back in the mid 1980's. This song is timeless. I wish I could have seen Lazarus the stage play and musical and see and hear this song performed too.
