lyrics

THE FIRST MAN
T. Neilson/ J. Neilson

The first man that I ever loved was
The first man to ever hold me in his arms
The first time that I cried my very first tear
He was here

The first kiss that I ever gave was to
The first man the one who always kept me safe
From the monsters living under my bed
Or in my head

All the rest gotta live up to the best of the first man
Win or lose we’re trying to fill the shoes of the first man
The first man

The first man, even with his flaws was still
The best man, not despite them but because
It made him the good man that he was
Yes he was

The last time that he said my name was
The last time my heart would ever be the same
The one man I’ll be loving
From the first day to the last day of my life
