MY FIRST LOVEĀ©

What could have been, what should have been
Now we will never know
For I have her, and you have him
And we were long ago
When love was just a kiss, all for innocence
A long, long time ago
A long, long time ago

I look at you, you look at me
There?s mem'ries in our eyes
And I can see you standin? there
Out in that autumn night
When we stayed out too late
Was it our first date
A long, long time ago
A long, long time ago

And you know
How the years can come and go
Turn around and you are old
And stare at the face that was
My first love

Come walk with me, talk with me
Tell me how you've been
Yes, she and I are married now
What are your plans with him
Do you still feel the same
'Bout that fallin' rain
A long, long time ago
A long, long time ago

BREAK

What could have been, what should have been
How could I let you go
For I was young, and so unsure
My future yet unknown
And I was swept away
Just like my yesterdays
A long, long time ago
A long, long time ago

And I know
How the years can come and go
Turn around and you are old
And stare at the face that was
My first love
