for the first time lyrics – loick essien

“for the first time”
(the script cover)

she’s all alone up in bed with a broken heart,
while i’m drinking jack all alone in my local bar,
and i don’t know how, how we got in to this mad situation,
only doing things outta frustration
trying to make it work but man times are hard,

she needs me now but i can’t seem to find the time,
i got a new job now on the unemployment line,
and we don’t know how, we got into this mess
is it god’s test?
someone help us ’cause we’re doing our best,
trying to work it out but man times are hard, yeah…

now i’m drinking old cheap bottles of wine,
sit talking up all night,
saying things we haven’t for a while, a while, yeah
she’s smiling but she’s close to tears,
even after all these years,
we just now got the feeling that we’re meeting, for the first time

oh yeah
ooo ooo ooo

she’s in line at the dole with her head held high
but i just lost my job, i didn’t lose my pride
and we both know how, how we’re gonna make it work when it hurts
when you pick yourself up, you get kicked to the dirt
trying to make it work but man these times are hard

now i’m drinking old cheap bottles of wine,
sit talking up all night,
saying things we haven’t for a while, a while, yeah
she’s smiling but she’s close to tears,
even after all these years,
we just now got the feeling that we’re meeting, for the first time

oh yeah
ooo ooo ooo

now we’re drinking old cheap bottles of wine,
sittin’ talking up all night,
doing things we haven’t for a while, a while, yeah
she’s smiling but she’s close to tears,
even after all these years,
we just now got the feeling that we’re meeting, for the first time

oh yeah
uh
for the first time
oh yeah
for the first time
ooo
for the first time
ha
for the first time
ooo
oh yeah
we just now got the feeling that we’re meeting, for the first time
