THE FIRST TIME

I was just thirteen, when you asked me, "Are you going to the football game?"
Bright blue eyes and long red curls, no other girls I knew had hair like flames.
We found a secret spot beneath the stands that Friday night,
All that week I'd been waiting for the chance to hold you tight.

(1st chorus)
It was the first time, a magic moment in my life,
A memory I can take with me and savor like fine wine.
Tasting your sweet lips, caught up in your kiss, I realized,
This couldn't happen twice, it was the first time.

I became a man when my Uncle Sam gave me the privilege to serve with pride.
I'd never known a road outside of my zip code, when I got home here, you were still on my mind.
Folks in town told me that you owned the flower shop.
When I walked in, your kiss showed me your feelings hadn't stopped,

(2nd chorus)
Like the first time, a magic moment in my life,
A memory I can take with me and savor like fine wine.
Tasting your sweet lips, caught up in your kiss, I realized,
This was paradise, just like the first time.

(bridge)
Twelve months after gettin' home, we were talkin' baby names,
Two little girls came in our world with hair like curly flames.

(3rd chorus)
It was the first time, a magic moment in my life,
A memory I can take with me and savor like fine wine.
I fell in love again, with you and our new twins,
And realized, it really happened twice, just like the first time.
Yeah, it was the first time.
It felt like the first time.
