The First Time

from Drown the Wind by West of House

lyrics

It's a bittersweet reminder
As she races by faster than she should
That I'm always chasing
Chasing the one that I don't want to catch

Turn around my love
And for the first time let me see you
Hold my gaze until the river comes to take me home
And I'm afraid I'm not afraid
Of giving myself to surrender
And float along with you
And float along with you

Take all of my expectations
Of who I thought she was tempered by my fear
Of the unknown that everybody says they know
Because the Bible told them so
Or so the story goes

Turn around my love
And for the first time let me see you
Hold my gaze until the river comes to take me home
And I'm afraid I'm not afraid
Of giving myself to surrender
And float along with you
And float along with you

Have I misunderstood or failed to mention
I don't know who I am?
It's a failing I'm familiar with
A thorn in my side that will never go away

Turn around my love
And for the first time let me see you
Hold my gaze until the river comes to take me home
And I'm afraid I'm not afraid
Of giving myself to surrender
And float along with you
And float along with you

Turn around my love...
