The First Time I Saw You

THE FIRST TIME I SAW YOU

The first time I saw you
I saw crimson I saw dark blue
Saw the ocean we would drive to
To say our goodbyes
I saw winter, I saw new moons
Saw a heavy-hearted bridegroom
Saw the color of your bedroom
In the whites of your eyes
Don’t ask me how I knew
It was the first time I saw you

The first time I saw you
I saw somebody that I knew
I recognized you
From our first glance
See I’ve seen my share of counterfeits
Used to have them hang around a bit
But once you seen yourself a genuine
There ain’t no going back
Don’t ask me how I knew
It was the first time I saw you

The last time I saw you
By the ocean like we both knew
Now I guess that I’m supposed to
Tell you that I’m doing fine
But it was the last time that I held a hand
Was the last time that I gave a damn
I don’t think I’ll ever understand
Why I never found the time
I saw crimson I saw dark blue
The last time that I saw you
The last time that I saw those two
Was the first time I saw you
