lyrics

THE FIRST THING I SEE

The first thing I see
When I wake up to me
Is you

And it’s hard to believe
Or conceive
What I know to be true

Against all the odds
And although life’s a bitch
With a hole in my heart
Slight reality glitch

The first thing I see
When I wake up to me
Is you

The light in my window is on
Just in case you pass by
I remember you won’t
And forget there are good reasons why

There’s a little loose end
Where dreams don’t come true
Though I tied it in knots
And then hit undo

The first thing I see
When I wake up to me
Is you

Now I cry for you
And you cry for somebody else
Love’s a conundrum of passions
Heaven and Hell

All I’m trying to do
Is to live and let live
Get through this night
Forget and forgive

But the first thing I see
When I wake up to me
I cry when I do
‘Cause I know it’s not true
But the first thing I see
When I wake up to me
Is you
