"First Time" as written by Lisa Yonts Daniel and Naomi Martin....
Through these misty eyes
It's plain to see
Even though you're here
You're not with me
Tortured by the thought, torn in two
Reason needs no voice, when you know it's true

But oh, we make our love again
And oh, it's easy to pretend
There's so much pleasure through this pain
I lie

I try to speak
But my tongue gets tied
I try to seek
But you're hard to find
My will is weak
'Cause my soul's resigned
It's like I'm seeing you for the first time

Still I feed my faith
Though it has no ground
And I tell myself I'm safe
As we're falling down
You said you'd let me know
If the end was near
Now do I let you go?
It's still unclear

But oh, good sense has gone to waste
And oh, it fades in your embrace
I know what keeps me in this place
Your smile

I try to speak
But my tongue gets tied
I try to seek
But you're hard to find
My will is weak
'Cause my soul's resigned
It's like I'm seeing you for the first time

And oh (whenever I try to speak) my tongue gets tied
And oh (whenever I try to seek) you're hard to find
And oh (whenver I try to feel) my soul's resigned
It's like I'm seeing you, for the first time
It's like I'm seeing you
It's like I'm seeing you
It's like I'm, I'm seeing you
It's like I'm seeing you

I try to speak (whenever I try to speak)
But my tongue gets tied
I try to seek (whenever I try to seek)
But you're hard to find
My will is weak (whenever I try to feel)
'Cause my soul's resigned
It's like I'm seeing you for the first time

I try to speak, yeah (whenever I try to speak)
But my tongue gets tied
I try to seek (whenever I try to seek)
But you're hard to find
My will is weak (whenever I try to feel)
'Cause my soul's resigned
It's like I'm seeing you for the first time
It's like I'm seeing you for the first time
It's like I'm seeing you for the first time

    General CommentWell I don't know know a lot about this singer because she's never released anything in the US. But I heard this song and I had to hear more from her.

    I think this song is about a guy who is cheating on his girlfriend. She wants to leave him and she knows she should. But he's like kryptonite to her. I think everybody has that one person who makes them wacky. You forget your common sense. As the song goes its like you're seeing them for the first time.
    Its such an amazing song with beautiful vocals.

    General CommentYou might not have heard of Bev but she is fabulous. You'll probably have heard of Chris Martin from Coldplay who co-wrote this song and played the piano in. You need to listen to more...one of the most talented females to come out of Britain.
