Then I got my first goodbye
I didn't know what hit me 'til I felt the tears in my eyes
I was sure that you loved me
Only goes to show how wrong a heart can be

They played a song that took me back, girl
I closed my eyes and we were there in John Frost Square
It's only now that I realise, girl
I threw away my one true love
I watched us standing at the station
And you were cold and oh you cried, how I lied
I told you then I didn't need you, girl
'Cause I was cool and on my way

Then I got my first goodbye
I didn't know what hit me 'til I felt the tears in my eyes
I was sure that you loved me
Only goes to show how wrong a heart can be

And then I put my past behind me
And life was good and times were high, and I could fly
Even then a voice would find me
And say your name, and ask me why
And so in time I tried to find you
I sent a message care of Sarah, and you were there and said:
"I was time you put behind you"
And now you're happy and so in love

Then I got my first goodbye
I didn't know what hit me 'til I felt the tears in my eyes
I was sure that you loved me
Only goes to show how wrong a heart can be

It's only now I realise, girl
Ooh yeah

Then I got my first goodbye
I didn't know what hit me 'til I felt the tears in my eyes
In my eyes (in my eyes)
In my eyes (ooh baby)
In my eyes (you made me cry)
In my eyes

Then I got my first goodbye
I didn't know what hit me 'til I felt the tears in my eyes
I was sure that you loved me
Only goes to show how wrong a heart can be
