If you had any idea what it was gonna take
Would you have gotten started in the first place?
All these commitments you make, they keep on adding up
Because you got addicted from the first place

OOOooo
No body wonders, nobody really cares
OOooo
About your intentions until you've gotten there

Chorus
Oh, you started out; you were just a blank space
You started out; you were just an ordinary face
You started out, now you've gotta finish what you 've done
Isn't that why you started in the first place?
Started in the first place

If you had ever believed that you were gonna break
Would you have gotten going in the first place?
All these decisions it takes to get you through the day
With no one even noticing your heart break
Oooo
Are you alone yes, are you in trouble no
Oooo
People's opinions they tend to come and go

CHORUS
Oh, you started out, you were just a blank space
You started out, you were just an ordinary face
You started out, now you've gotta finish what you 've done
Isn't that why you started in the first place?
Started in the first place

How do you know when you're finally done, if you got nothing to show
How do you know, with all the people you might trust all forget to let you
Know
Oooo
Ooooh

CHORUS
You started out, you were just a blank space
You started out, you were just an ordinary face
You started out, now you've gotta finish what you've done
Isn't that why you started in the place
Started in the first place
Can you remember
Can you remember
Can you remember wanting to be there?
Can you remember wanting to be there?
Can you remember why you started in the first place?
Do you know why you started in the first place?
In the first place
