lyrics

For my first love, I fell quickly.
I was looking for to fall
Having bought it all from movie screens
And photographs on walls
I guess that I was hungry
I was looking for my fill
My first love came too easy
But I loved her still

She, herself, loved other men
Before I came along
Other men who broke her heart
Other men who did her wrong
When she came to me she faltered
Her heart against her will
My first love was not easy
But I loved her still

There’s no photographs, no letters,
Only fading memories
Of more misery, in truth, than happiness
Though I don’t entertain regret
I don’t know that I’ll forget
I guess that’s just the way your first love is

In the end it turned quite sour
As we went our separate ways
I guess this often happens
I feel no bitterness today
Though I think about her sometimes
Perhaps I always will
I don’t allow myself to wonder
If I love her still

There’s no photographs, no letters,
Only fading memories
Of more misery, in truth, than happiness
Though I don’t entertain regret
I don’t know that I’ll forget
I guess that’s just the way your first love is
