"The First Cut Is The Deepest" as written by and Cat Stevens....
I would have given you all of my heart
But there's someone who's torn it apart
And he's taken just all that I had
But if you want I'll try to love again
Baby, I'll try to love again but I know

The first cut is the deepest
Baby I know the first cut is the deepest
But when it comes to being lucky he's cursed
When it come to loving me he's worst

I still want you by my side
Just to help me dry the tears that I've cried
And I'm sure going to give you a try
And if you want I'll try to love again (tryyy)
Baby, I'll try to love again but I know

The first cut is the deepest
Baby I know the first cut is the deepest
But when it comes to being lucky he's cursed
When it come to loving me he's worst

I still want you by my side
Just to help me dry the tears that I've cried
But I'm sure gonna give you a try
'Cause if you want I'll try to love again (try to love again)
Baby, I'll try to love again but I know

The first cut is the deepest
Baby I know, the first cut is the deepest
When it come to being lucky he's cursed
When it come to loving me he's worst

The first cut is the deepest baby i know
The first cut is the deepest try to love again

    General CommentI still want you by my side

    Baby, I'll try to love again but I know .........Great lyrics, Sheryl really nails this cover, and does a great justice to it in my opinion.

    General CommentI think it's funny that there are just about no comments for this song, even though it was played nonstop on so many radio stations. I know it's not original but... yeah I got sick of hearing it, thanks a lot radio.

    General CommentWow, I never knew this was Cat Stevens' song originally until I was just searching this site for Cat Stevens' lyrics. And then I came across a song called "The First Cut Is the Deepest" and I was like "Hey... that sounds like the overly played Sheryl Crow song... I wonder..." And ta da! It is a cover!

    Oh, Sheryl Crow, you used to be so good. You know, that point after "All I Wanna Do" but before "Picture"... What happened?
