To take the first step
Is a frightening thing.
To face the unknown
The uncertainty it brings.
But like the child
Who is tired of the crawl,
The first step is
The most important of all.

It expands your horizons,
You can see a new light.
The joy of discovery
Is like taking flight.
The first step you take
Will open all doors,
To see yourself as
You've seen you before.

And like the child
Who gives it his all,
Sometimes he faulters,
He will teeter and fall.
But strong arms are there
To catch them and then,
They stand him back up
To start walking again.

The longest journey,
Takes one step at a time,
But once you get going
You'll do just fine.
Take my hand, friend
I'll help you along
I'll be right beside you...
As two we'll be strong.

Yes, the first step's a big one,
The most important of all.
But I'll be there to catch you
Should you teeter and fall.
We'll set our sights forward
Grit our teeth and walk on...
When we see that road ending,
We'll break into a run.

I love you, I'll help you
All the way through.
But to take the first step,
We'll that's up to you.
