I would have given you all of my heart
But there's someone who's torn it apart
And he's taking just all that I have
But if you want, I'll try to love again
Baby I'll try to love again but I know

The first cut is the deepest, baby I know
The first cut is the deepest
But when it comes to being lucky he's cursed
When it comes to lovin' me he's worst

I still want you by my side
Just to help me dry the tears that I've cried
But I'm sure gonna give you a try
And if you want, I'll try to love again
Baby, I'll try to love again, but I know

The first cut is the deepest, baby I know
The first cut is the deepest

But when it comes to being lucky he's cursed
When it comes to lovin' me he's worst

I still want you by my side just to help me dry the tears that i've cried but i'm sure gonna give you a try 'cause if you wanna try to love again Baby i'll try to love again but i know...oh,

The first cut is the deepest, baby I know
The first cut is the deepest but when it comes to being lucky he's first and when it comes to lovin me he's worst oh, the first cut is the deepest, baby i know, the first cut is the deepest try to love again

    The song means that someone is failing to move on from the first love, though its not mearnt to be, but hey try another one and prove it that the next cut can be deeper coz the one you think made the deepest cut does not deserve it- so better do your heart some justice and move on completely.

    My meaning to the first cut is the deepest is to have loved and been horribly hurt over and over again to the point that you know it wont change so you dont look for any. But by chance you have found another that wants your love and you are reluctant but willing at least to try love again.

    Song is a remake, rod stewart did original. A broken heart for a man is much more devistating than a woman. Male ego is crushed. Especially the first time. Song is about someone first real attempt at love after a rough broken heart. From experience it took me years to get over my first.
