He's the first taste of something you shouldn't have
He's the first lie you tell to your mom and dad
He's the reason you love the smell of Polo and peppermint
He's the lips that taught you how to kiss
He's the reason you know how to drive a stick
He's the last time you ever felt innocent

It's a scene from a Saturday matinee
It's a song that remembers those summer days
Even if that cowboy rides away real slow
The boy never stays, and the love never goes

He's the reason Ferris wheels make you sad
He's a box full of taped up photographs
He's the feeling that always feels like seventeen
He's a name that you'll hardly ever hear
He's a face that you haven't seen in years
But you meet up once in awhile in your dreams

It's a scene from a Saturday matinee
It's a song that remembers those summer days
Even if that cowboy rides away real slow
The boy never stays, and the love never goes

You never fall the same quite the same again
After the first time forever ends

It's a scene from a Saturday matinee
It's a song that remembers those summer days
Even if that cowboy rides away real slow
The boy never stays, and the love never goes
Oh, the love never goes

He's the first taste of something you shouldn't have
He's the first lie you tell to your mom and dad
