​Start With The Ending

This song is by David Wilcox and appears…

Secret of a happy marriage
Maybe you should write this down
You wanna keep a love together?
The best way is to end it now.
When you both know it's over
Suddenly the truth comes out.
You can talk about your secret passion,
You can talk about your restless doubts.

When there's no pretending,
Then the truth is safe to say.
Start with the ending,
Get it out of the way.
Now there's no defending,
Because no one has to win.
Start with the ending,
It's the best way to begin.

After you've both decided
You were missing something that you need,
The ways that you were too short-sighted
Get easier for you to see.
After all the expectations
Shatter on the kitchen floor,
You just see another human suffering
And wonder what the war was for.

It's the best way,
The best way to begin

Happy anniversary darlin',
We go back a long, long time.
I think about our lives together,
So grateful that you're here in mine.
And I know you'll keep on changing
Moving in this dance with me.
I love the way we embrace the future
And keep the past a memory.

So there's no defending
That the old ways could remain
Start with the ending,
Things will never be the same.
But now there's no defending,
So that no one has to win.
Start with the ending,
It's the best way to begin.

It's the best way,
The best way to begin

No defending,
The truth is safe to say.
Start with the ending,
Get it out of the way.

No defending,
No one has to win.
Start with the ending,
It's the best way to begin.

It's the best way to begin

Now there's no defending,
No one has to win.
Start with the ending,
It's the best way, (start fade)
It's the best way to begin, begin, begin.
It's the best way to begin.
