First time I saw her
She was still in school
Chewin' on a pencil
Playin' pool
Stayin' up all night
Full of dreams

I've known her family
Ever since we were small
Gettin' in trouble
Drivin' our folks up the wall
Wastin' time
Yeah....but we had fun
She was gonna
Ride her bike to China
Sail away on a bottle top
And as the years passed by
One night I held her close to me
That was the first time I
Said I love you
To Natalie

Carousel was crowded
So we talked for a while
Natalie said, "Baby,
You know I miss your smile...
Whenever you go away
From me."
You know that time starts tickin'
When a love starts to fade
I knew something was wrong but still
I thought we had it made
The first time I
Said I love you
To Natalie
That was the first time I
Said I love you
To Natalie

Now I look at her pictures
And I talk to these walls
Call out her name
But
She don't hear
Me at all

And she got wild and restless
Tried everything
She could take
One night I tried to stop her
But I was too late

That was the last time I
Said I love you
To Natalie

And that was the last time I
Said I love you
To Natalie

That was the last time I
Said I love you
That was the last time I
Said I love you
That was the last time I
Said I love you
To Natalie
