"First Time" as written by Jason Wade and Jude Cole....
We're both looking for something
We've been afraid to find
It's easier to be broken
It's easier to hide

Looking at you, holding my breath
For once in my life, I'm scared to death
I'm taking a chance, letting you inside

I'm feeling alive all over again
As deep as the sky under my skin
Like being in love, she said, for the first time
Maybe I'm wrong, I'm feeling right
Wherever I belong with you tonight
Like being in love to feel for the first time

The world that I see inside you
Waiting to come to life
Waking me up to dreaming
Reality in your eyes

Looking at you, holding my breath
For once in my life, I'm scared to death
I'm taking a chance, letting you inside

I'm feeling alive all over again
As deep as the sky under my skin
Like being in love, she said, for the first time
Maybe I'm wrong, I'm feeling right
Wherever I belong with you tonight
Like being in love to feel for the first time

We're crashing
Into the unknown
We're lost in this
But it feels like home

I'm feeling alive all over again
As deep as the sky under my skin
Like being in love, she said, for the first time
Maybe I'm wrong, I'm feeling right
Wherever I belong with you tonight
Like being in love to feel for the first time

Like being in love she said for the first time
Like being in love to feel for the first time

    General Comment:)This is a great song. I think everyone can relate to that terfified feeling
    of being vulnerable and letting someone see all of ones weak spots that they hide.
    And yet seeing something new come into their life.
    "The world that I see inside you,waiting to come to life"...
    Is it really real?

    General CommentAt first, I thought this was a typical song referencing love--til I listened to it a few more times.
    I think it's actually about some sort of a salvation experience. He says it's, "Like being in love with you for the first time." If he were only talking about being in love he wouldn't say it was "LIKE being in love". Alot of Lifehouse songs have underlying spiritual meanings, kind of like a double entender.

    General CommentWell, lets look at the meaning here...
    (another great acoustic arrangment might I add!)
    The song wasn't written by a teenage boy who fell in love for the first time....it's written by a middle aged man in regards to a current relationship. There were relationships in my high school/college days where everything was there, but it just didn't work out. As I can relate in my late 20's, have had quite a few relationships where it wasn't there, I didn't feel it. And then...all of a sudden, one (a relationship) comes along where it's there. It catches you off-guard, you don't expect it because you're not looking for it. Everything is there, and as the female states in this song...it's like the 'first time'. The butterflys, nerves, the stomach aches, etc.
    That's what this song is about, it's about having had, loosing it and then coming across it again down the road. And all the while, not looking for it, but, just finding it as you live.

    Looking at you, holding my breath

    General Comment“It just felt urgent, like a first kiss, a first love,” says Jason. “Like the first time you realize there’s more to that relationship than you thought. I had to dig a little for that one, but I find myself at a place where I can write stuff that’s a little deeper than your average love song in terms of emotion.”


    this song is beautiful.
    i completely lovee it.

    General CommentI think it is very easy. He's falling love with a girl for the first time of his life.

    General Commentwell in a way, i agree with poolka..it does have an underlying meaning. but i also feel it's about love. maybe it's about his love for Christ..not for a girl. or maybe it's about both..who really knows.
