There's a first time for everything...


There's a first time for everything
That one summer you were house-sitting
I think you heard from a friend I was a virgin
So after the party
In our teacher's bed
You took me in

I was afraid that I wouldn't last
I was right, yeah I didn't last
But what I'll always remember was a couple days later
In our teacher's bed
You took me in again

I was on acid and you were on mushrooms
My best friend slept alone in the computer room
Everything clicked like some kind of magical mystery tour

Days went by and it was so surreal
My body told my brain how to feel
I was building a fence in the days and when nights rolled around
I was there with you
The whole night through

We never talked very much
I suppose it was easier just to touch
But I knew you were leaving in the middle of August I watched us
Silently wait
Until the expiration date

And I think that love is what you started to see
And I felt ashamed I didn't have it in me
The night that you left, you cried as I was inside you
I couldn't shed a tear
Feeling guilt and fear

To make things worse, I fell in love with your best friend
While you were out there WWOOFing in Ireland
You wanted to pen pall but it didn't really work out that way
In the end

And I've been treated the same since then
And it may not mean much but now I understand
How dishonorable people can be when you're all the way in

I try not regret anything I do
But I regret the way I treated you
I know you told me that you forgive me but I just wanna say
That I'm sorry

There's a first time for everything
There's a first time for everything
There's a first time for everything
There's a first time for everything
There's a first time for everything
There's a first time for everything
