for the first time (in a long time) lyrics – kid rock

“for the first time (in a long time)”

i been livin’ like a drunken sailor
playin’ in a rock ‘n roll band
far from a failure, i feel like a brand new man
smoking like a fiend and schemin’
dealin’ with the upper hand
it’s been so long since i felt this good, god d*mn

i’m finally standin’ tall
i feel i just can’t fall
your love takes me to a higher place

for the first time, in a long time
i’m done payin’ my dues
for the first time, in a long time
i don’t feel used

let’s go out honky tonkin’
dancing till the morning light
the time is now and this time i feel all right

i’m finally standin’ tall
i feel i just can’t fall
your love takes me to a higher place

for the first time, in a long time
i don’t stand accused
for the first time, in a long time
i feel brand new
life’s been kind, water tastes like wine
i feel so high like i’m on cloud nine
for the first time, in a long time
