LEA SALONGA- JOURNEY  http://artists.letssingit.com/lea-salonga-lyrics-journey-kd4bp5f  *******”Forward, always forward…” is the only way to look upon a journey.  Looking back will cause you to stumble and possibly take a few too many steps back and you may end up re-taking that first step.  Take that first step and and put the past behind you for good.  The journey you are on can only be completed once you do so.*******
