Cat Stevens – The First Cut Is The Deepest lyrics

I would have given you all of my heart
But there's someone who's torn it apart
And she's taking almost all that I've got
But if you want, I'll try to love again
Baby I'll try to love again but I know

The first cut is the deepest, baby I know
The first cut is the deepest
'cause when it comes to being lucky she's cursed
When it comes to lovin' me she's worse
But when it comes to being loved she's first
That's how I know

The first cut is the deepest, baby I know
The first cut is the deepest

I still want you by my side
Just to help me dry the tears that I've cried
Cause I'm sure gonna give you a try
And if you want, I'll try to love again
But baby, I'll try to love again, but I know

The first cut is the deepest, baby I know
The first cut is the deepest

'Cause when it comes to being lucky she's cursed
When it comes to lovin' me she's worse
But when it comes to being loved she's first
That's how I know

The first cut is the deepest, baby I know
The first cut is the deepest

    As well as discussing the intertwining relationships of the speaker and two girls, he is also discussing the heart ache one feels for their first love. We can all ralate to the first time one falls in love and how strong and intense that love is, it is something that is never forgottena nd although the relationship may end and lovers go their seperate ways.
    The speaker is saying that he is willing to be with Girl 2 but he still have Girl 1 on his mind, yet he is working on removing her.

    It's a shame subsequent performers have chosen to omit "When it comes to being loved, she's first". It changes the entire meaning of the song.
    He's still in love with Number 1, despite the fact that she's not very good at loving him. She's first on his list.
    But he's willing to take a chance on Number 2. Not because he loves her, but because she just might help him get over Number 1.
    I wouldn't count on it.
