So little to say
But so much time
Ddespite my empty mouth
The words are in my mind
Please wear the face
The one where you smile
Because you
Lighten up my heart
When I start to cry

Forgive me first love
But I'm tired
I need to get away
To feel again
Try to understand why
Don't get so close
To change my mind
Please wipe that look
Out of your eyes
It's bribing me
To doubt myself
Simply, it's tiring

This love has dried up
And stayed behind
And if I stay
I'll be alive
Then choke on words
I'd always hide
Excuse me first love
But we're through
I need to taste the kiss
From someone knew

Forgive me first love
But I'm too tired
I'm bored to say
The least and I
I lack desire
Forgive me first love (4x)
Forgive me
Forgive me first love (2x)

    This song describes the love that really didn't mean that much. A love that was supposed to last, but never did. The love that was once so new and fresh now a dry scrap. Like it doesn't even exist anymore. The desire to feel something different. "i need to taste the kiss from someone new.. "

    What we had was incredible in the beginning, but things are getting old. I need a break, and i've forgotten what love is really supposed to feel like. I'm sorry. Incredibly sorry. You may be my first love, but i can't let you be my last.

    This song means a lot because this is the song i played for this one guy, who said he loved me. He went off to college and asked me to wait for him. And he was my first love but i can't wait forever.

    The song talks about the first love he/she had, the feelings, the intense emotion... And the long wait he/she did... But he/she grew tired of not having life because of waiting, so he/she decided to leave his/her first love to feel love and be loved again...
