for the first time lyrics – original broadway cast

jane:

this affection i feel is hard to understand
it’s not the way i planned
my world is changing
wherever i turn
it’s his face i see
looking back at me
and in my eyes i can’t disguise
the affection i feel
is getting the better off me

oh for the first time it’s not a dream
oh for the first time it seems so real
that i want to remember
every moment
that i’m there beside him
when he gently takes my hand
so here i am
feeling things i’ve never felt
and all because of him
my world is changing

tarzan:

she’s turned my whole world upside down

jane:

everything that i do
i do to catch his eye
well and i won’t deny
i stand here guilty

tarzan:

i wonder if she feels the same

both:
is this affection (as) i feel

has gotten the better of me

both:

so for the first time
can this be love?
oh for the first time
i know it’s real

jane:

and with him i feel

both:

so completely
uniquely like no other
as he gently holds me close

jane:

but wait a minute
what am i saying?

tarzan:

ne’er thought no

jane:

i never thought
on a scale so grand
tarzan:

to be feeling
jane:

are these emotions
racing through me
tell me i must
tell me i can

tarzan:

i never felt these things

both:

i’m finding who i am
cause for the first time

jane:

i have no doubt

tarzan:

these things she does

both:

but for the first time
i understand, try to understand
yes for the first time
i realise
that all the things they strange/separate happened
well they’re happening to me

jane:

every time i’m with that man

tarzan:

every time i’m with her

jane:

every time i’m with

tarzan:

could i be

both:

that man
