Absolute Beginners Lyrics

Artist: David Bowie

I've nothing much to offer
There's nothing much to take
I'm an absolute beginner
And 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
There's no reason
To feel all the hard times
To lay down the hard lines
It's absolutely true

Bowie is fantastic, an excellant song here. Best line in my opinion:
'As long as you're still smiling
There's nothing more I need'.
by Angel R. Salazar on 6/2/2008 9:59pm
Realmente es muy buena y llega a calar en los más profundo de un tuétano romántico. Es una canción recomendada para quienes gustan de la new wave.

Brilliant song. Brilliant lyrics. Ultimate love song. Bowie's Jump They Say rocks too. Greetings from Poland.

David Bowie Is the best singer in the universe! I've got all of his albums and singles (original on LP) and NO ONE can sing like him!!
LOVE ALL of his songs!
by Sylvie on 11/17/2008 4:56pm
Liedje van lang geleden. Steeds weer even stilstaan telkens ik het hoor. Het blijft bekoren in alle stadia in je leven, van pure liefde tot echt verdriet. S

à ma soeur valerie !!!!!
by bowie on 12/21/2008 6:26pm
the best thing in this song:

''it is absoultly true''!

because the point is to love
in a realistic way not just to be
overwhelmed with ilusions.
that is Bowie's sense of emotion
and it's great!!!!!
by William on 1/1/2009 6:40am
This is perhaps my favourite song of all time. It is certainly up there with such songs as "Sweet Child of Mine" and "Buffalo Stance".
by Rikki on 1/22/2009 4:27pm
I have met David Bowie (back stage pass) and he is the best guy ever, such a gentleman and if meeting him was'nt enough he played this on accustic guitar and sang it for my then girlriend now wife.

This and "Loving the Alien" are two of my favorite Bowie tunes. He really demonstrates his extraordinary vocal talent in these two songs.
by Jefri on 6/2/2009 1:19am
1986 ! Those were the days. I was 16 then. This song bring back the old good memories to me. Now I am 38 and I still listen to this song sometimes and other 80's music.
by vincenzo on 9/4/2009 8:46am

by Mastroianni on 9/6/2009 11:30am
Absolutely perfect song!!!
by Rob on 9/22/2009 12:55am
I have re-discovered this song recently... and maybe belief in love, too. An incredible song. I can listen to this on and on. I want to dedicate it to one girl - maybe she will understand.. greetings from Poland
by tale, croatia on 10/22/2009 3:39am
If our love song
Could fly over mountains...

As long as you're still smiling
There's nothing more I need
I absolutely love you...

But if my love is your love
We're certain to succeed...

fenomenal lyrics...

by Luige on 12/12/2009 4:48am
Heard this song when it came out and just love it. Bowie is a talented bisexual.

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

what is supossed to mean this
by Nick on 6/4/2010 6:12am
Never bothered with this song when I was younger, thought it was just a soundtrack to a movie. Now for some reason a few weeks ago it just popped into my head & I was chuffed that I found it on my iPod.Now I cant stop listening to it ! I wish I paid attention all those years ago as I would have had it played at my wedding !
by Sugeng on 8/12/2010 2:26pm
Lagu yang sangat mengesankan sekali. Teringat masa remajaku th. 1986.

Perfect lyrics for a classic love song!! Timeless masterpiece!!!
by ricky panli on 8/30/10 on 8/29/2010 5:56pm
it's absolutely true!!!!!!!!
by Ed on 8/30/2010 9:12am
" if my love is your love, we re certain to succeed". one of the most real and powerful and genuine love lyrics possible. simple, yet so powerful. what it says is that my love is so great that nothing will knock it, nothing, its unconditional. and if u feel that too, if u feel love that strongly like i do, then we cannot fail. powerful powerful stuff.

by ari on 3/12/2011 7:35am
Thank you for this lines that reminding me of truth forgotten for a long time:

Pensaba que despues de la etapa del Ziggy Stardust, nada de Bowie me gustaria pero definitivamente esta es unas de esas canciones que te hacen pensar en las cosas buenas que tienes y que a veces no aprecia uno...una mas a mi lista de favoritas
by Therese on 11/2/2012 7:56am
for the past must be nearly 20yrs i have loved this song, the more its such a good love song....history
by Jill on 1/4/2013 11:35pm
When you are no longer seeking a role, no longer grasping and ambitious in romance, no longer focused on any destination...when you, in short, have grown much older and finally realize what it is to love - this song describes it so well.
by feelit on 2/21/2013 2:30pm
Loved this song in 86' when it failed to chart?? I was 14. When i listen to this song now at 40 it means so much more.great songs live forever! Die biebers
by Just a Rebble on 6/8/2013 8:30pm
This is one of the most well written songs Bowie has done. I still love it and can listen to it forever. I am hooked on The next day - His latest and I can see it should be going to number one but it's not getting air time. The video is great too. Typical dynamic Bowie. If he does a tour for his new album hope he comes to Auckland New Zealand and does all of his best songs. Love you Bowie
by itsyourjourney on 8/10/2013 11:56am
Didn't like Bowie that much, some were ok. Just by faith, I needed a song for my wife and this one is on an 80's collection I seldom listen to. Some words caught my attention and then I googled the lyrics. Enough said.

Enjoy YOUR Journey.
by James Rai on 4/11/2014 4:31pm
Listening to this on a 80's digital radio station in U.K.

Bowie rocks!

Love the comments from others starting in 2008...time flies but these songs are timeless.
by Wargus on 5/2/2014 6:15am
Best love song ever... this will be the opening song in the wedding of me and my wife... this is our song...

You offered so much, with so much for us to take. RIP :( A Sad Sad day.
by Cin on 1/12/2016 5:11pm
My favorite song that always sticks in my head when I am in quiet, deep moments. A perfect love song stripped of silly, cultural notions. He will remain with us as all brilliant artists do.
by q on 1/17/2016 3:57am
sigh....Never felt heartbreaks like this... Thank you x
