MY FIRST LOVE† (REPRISE)
Fate picks her cards harshly -
Unfeeling when dealing.
Losing my father left
Me reeling, freewheeling -
And needing direction;
I often thought I was to blame.
Now I am older
Iím still aching, still shaking
Left with a heart that is
Still breaking, but faking.
And cold introspections
Are haunting my life to this day.
Seems that love will only bring me pain
So I vow Iíll not be hurt again;
Without him, my life is incomplete
Sharing all his former glories, happy days and warming stories.††††††††††††††††††
When at once I felt my childhood end
I was left without my favírite friend.
I was left with just past pleasures;
Of warm days with no half measures.
Of a time with nothing else to fear.
But I see why I was left behind;
For there was a truth you were compelled to find;†
You heart lives in my mind
My first love.
