"First Time" as written by and Jud Friedman James Newton....
It feels like, the first time, that i am standing on my own,
and im not wasted tonite, not wasted tonite


so whats wrong with me, i can't sleep,
pull these bedsheets over me and let me be,
with broken hearts, and black and blues,
im shivering because i
wondered what you'd think,
if i didn't break, and made a change for you

It feels like, the first time, that i am standing on my own,
and im not wasted tonite, not wasted tonite

it takes a part of me, can't you see,
im pushing through your tidal waves so i can breathe,
with no regrets, so bittersweet, im holding on because i
waited for your call, if you care at all i will wait for you

It feels like, the first time, that i am standing on my own,
and im not wasted tonite, not wasted-

tonite i throw myself into, this blanket of relief,
where i can get release, but you can't understand,
whats happening to me, and these songbirds in between,
sing anthems out to you
