First Time Around

Well, you ask if I still love you 

Well, that was yesterday

Now you ask if I remember 

Only that you said good bye

And you ask if I’ve got feelings

Well they’re not the kinds you think

 

And you wanna say you’re sorry

But you know I've hit my brink

 

So turn around and walk away boy

Cause I’m not your little fool anymore

 

The little girl who used to love you 

Has grown up to know

That you were just a toy

That I thought I couldn’t live without

I couldn’t have known better the first time around

 

Now you say that you were wrong 

That you knew it all along

That you knew that this was love

But you didn’t know what kind

 

And you had your little fun

While you tore our love apart

Now you’re begging to come back

Cause you’ve had a change of heart

 

You’ll never know how many tears and night 

I cried over you

And how I thought that what we had 

Was the best that I could do

 

What kind of fool was I to have been so blind

I couldn’t have known better the first time around

 

Now it’s been more than a while since I last saw your face

And I found someone to take your place

 

And those feelings that I had they don’t happen anymore

I’ll take you by the hand let me walk you to the door

 

Cause I’ve got somebody new to love me

And I’ve got somebody else to hold me

And he loves me like you never did

 

the little girl who used to love you has grown up to know

That you were just a toy that I thought I couldn't live with out

I couldn't have known better the first time around

 

You said you loved me 

The first time around

I couldn't have known better

the first time around

 

You said you loved me

The first time around

You never loved me 

The first time around

I couldn't have known better 

The first time around

 

How could I know better the first time around

You said you loved me
