There's something sacred when your 17
'Bout a football jacket and a high school ring
And it sure looked nice when you wore mine

That late October at the homecoming dance
We slipped outside and we took a chance
In the middle of the night it sure felt right
We let go right then and there
We were loved and we were scared

For the first time
Lovin' blind we dove right in
For the first
We gave everything and then
Graduation came
And our dreams called our names
With broken hearts we moved on with our lives
For the first time

Well I heard the other day
You're a Sunday school teacher
Got the PTA, got a real good life
You're a real good wife
I'm living in this circus world
No I ain't married but I got a girl
And I'm her man and we're making plans
But I still smile when I think of us
Together we learned how to love

For the first time
Lovin' blind we dove right in
For the first
We gave everything and then
Graduation came
And our dreams called our names
With broken hearts we moved on with our lives
For the first time

Graduation came
And our dreams called our names
With broken hearts we moved on with our lives
For the first time

For the first time
Lovin' blind we dove right in
For the first time
We gave everything and then
For the first time
We moved on with our lives
For the first time

    A reunion of two lovers that lost their virginity together at their homecoming dance. Interesting concept, and I love the intial piano.
