At The Beginning At The Beginning

Richard Marx with Donna Lewis

We were strangers, starting out on a journey
Never dreaming, what we'd have to go through
Now here we are, I'm suddenly standing
At the beginning with you

No one told me, I was going to find you
Unexpected, what you did to my heart
When I lost hope
You were there to remind me
This is the start


And life is a road and I wanna keep goin'
Love is a river I wanna keep flowin'
Life is a road now and forever wonderful journey
I'll be there when the world stops turning
I'll be there when the storm is through
In the end I want to be standing
At the beginning with you

We were strangers, on a crazy adventure
Never dreaming, how our dreams would come true
Now here we stand, unafraid of the future
At the beginning with you

(Repeat Chorus)

Knew there was somebody somewhere
I need love in the dark
Now I know my dream will live on
I've been waiting so long
Nothing is going to tear us apart

(Repeat Chorus)

Life is a road and I wanna keep goin'
Love is a river I wanna keep flowin'
Starting out on a journey

(Repeat Chorus)

In the end I want to be standing
At the beginning
With you

This song is set at the end of Redux II, when it seemed everything was finished. They were strangers thrown together by mysterious forces, never imagining what they would have to face. And after all their trials and tribulations, despite repeated attempts to separate them, they were still together. Even though it seemed like an end, perhaps it was actually a new beginning. Mulder didn't realize that she was going to be in his life for so long. He couldn't know that she would become a part of him, that his heart would belong to her. Even after a hard case or after having the rug of truth pulled out from under him again, she was always there to pick up the pieces and remind him that he had reasons to continue. Scully had someone who loved her with his heart and soul, she wanted that love for the rest of her life, now and forever. When the journey appeared to be over, the world settled down, and the storm had passed, he was still there, until the end, until everything was finished and they had to start again. They had begun as strangers and set out on an insane journey into the unexplained. She had never hoped that she would find unconditional love. He had never dared to believe that he'd find his sister and lose his heart in the process. They were standing on the edge, unafraid of a future as long as they were together. The past was but a memory and the future was the beginning of a new adventure. He had been alone for so long, a lone wolf who shied away from others for fear of being shunned. . But someone else felt his need, someone else understood his quest and made it their own. She had made his dream her own. He had waited so long to find love and now that he found it, nothing was going to make him let go.
