Anastasia – Journey To The Past lyrics

Heart don't fail me now
Courage don't desert me
Don't turn back now that we're here
People always say
Life is full of choices
No one ever mentions fear
Or how the world can seem so vast
On a journey to the past
Somewhere down this road
I know someone's waiting
Years of dreams just can't be wrong
Arms will open wide
I'll be safe and wanted
Finally home where I belong
Well starting now I'm learning fast
On this journey to the past
Home, love, family
There was once a time
I must've had them too
Home, love, family
I will never be complete until I find you
One step at a time
One hope, then another
Who knows where this road may go
Back to who I was
Onto find my future
Things my heart still needs to know
Yes, let this be a sign
Let this road be mine
Let it lead me to my past
And bring me home
At last

    We can not always chose what will become of us, but when we finally have the courage to. It becomes our sole responsibility to follow that which we have chosen to the end. It may not be easy but as long as we hold fast to that which we believe in our heart, we will make it to the end. I love this song and I love the animation too.

    Very nice song! I love Anastasia, it's my all time favorite animated movie! Here, Anastasia, under the name Annie, is shown to be an orphan who just got out of the orphanage now that she's all grown up. She is confused and doesn't now what to do, so she asks god for a sign. And the sign turns out to be a dog that leads her to St-Petersburg, while she sings this amazing song, hoping she'll find her family, her only clue being Paris, since, on a necklace she has worn since she was young, is written "together in paris". It was given to her by her grandma living now in paris, but she doesn't know it.
    Great movie, awesome song. You must watch it!

    It's about people's life. Their or our choices, we make in life. My favorite quote here is "don't turn back that now we're here". Its your choice, why you reach that level in life. And we all do have to make our own decisions to. We all have to choose doors and make sure to take what you really what. So that you won't regret something in the future. 'cause we know we can't change our pasts.
