lyrics

The First Heartbreak

Take one last look at what you've lost
Maybe now you'll see what it cost
This town don't feel the same
It's frozen in my brain
And you're gone from my heart
From my heart

I was there the night you got that tattoo
Some scars got nothing to hide and everything to lose
We went stumbling down the street
You were dark but you were sweet
You said my tone felt like home
And I wanna go home

Yeah the first heartbreak is the worst heartbreak
It's the worst heartbreak no…
Yeah the first heartbreak is the worst heartbreak
It's the worst heartbreak no, no, no...

Well the last thing that she said
One day you'll know you'd been better off dead
When I'm gone and still haunting you
And you're miles from 22
Then she just laughed...

She said the first heartbreak is the worst heartbreak
It's the worst heartbreak no…
Yeah the first heartbreak is the worst heartbreak
It's the worst heartbreak no, no...

*The First Heartbreak was the first song Kevin and I recorded together. It was a "demo" to test the waters of our collaboration. But there's really no such thing as a demo. Joe came in and we recorded it live and loud in Kevin's project studio. I fell in love with this recording and decided we should just keep it "as is" since it defined where we would go from there.
