A First Time

There's a first time for everything haven't you heard?
From falling in love to being absurd
Moving away and setting up home
Building a life with a heart of its own

There's a first time
A first time
A first time
Oh a first time
A first time
A first time
A first time
Oh a first time
For everything

Fly to a city that you've never been
Step from the plane: it's an alien scene
To read in the paper the loss of a friend
A face on a page: but you can't comprehend

There's a first time
A first time
A first time
Oh a first time
A first time
A first time
A first time
Oh a first time
For everything

Life finds you out
Whatever you're hiding behind
It'll find you out
The truth of the heart and the mind

Talk at a table - the candle between
Love in a flicker, so suddenly seen.
Watching your child awake to the snow
A palm on a window: the garden below

There's a first time
A first time
A first time
Oh a first time
A first time
A first time
A first time
Oh a first time
For everything
Everything
Everything
Everything
