There's something more, then something less
Yeah, it's never obvious
Cause when I think about you,
It's like the first time
You've seen my worst
I've seen your best
It's never been as obvious
As when I think about the first time
We ever met

(Just like the first time)
She's got that temper,
But I've got that tender way to say
That we've got a problem
Cause we know eachother all too well,
But what a contadiction
We always say we did it to ourselves
But when I'm not with you,
I can think of nothin' else
(Ohhh!)

It's something more, then something less
Yeah, it's never obvious
Cause when I think about you,
It's like the first time
You've seen my worst
I've seen your best
It's never been as obvious
As when I think about the first time
We ever met

(Just like the first time)
Everything's quiet
When there's a thousand things to say
But dear, I don't buy it
Cause I'm daring but I'm scared
You care, yeah I'm a contradiction
We always say we did it to ourselves
But when I'm not with you,
I can think of nothin' else
(Ohhh!)

It's something more, then something less
Yeah, it's never obvious
Cause when I think about you,
It's like the first time
You've seen my worst
I've seen your best
It's never been as obvious
As when I think about the first time
We ever met

It always comes back to that first time (the first time)
When every glass came with a sigh
And every boy told me to try
The timing never seemed to go right (go right)
Cause how could my love ever help,
When I barley know myself
(Ohhh!)

It's something more, then something less
Yeah, it's never obvious
Cause when I think about you,
It's like the first time
You've seen my worst
I've seen your best
It's never been as obvious
As when I think about the first time
Ohhh,

It's something more, then something less
Yeah, it's never obvious
Cause when I think about you,
It's like the first time
You've seen my worst
I've seen your best
It's never been as obvious
As when I think about the first time
We ever met

    General Commentwhat an amazing song, the Acoustic Version is better (my opinion). i think this song is about a girl he used to date( maybe his first love) and keeps thinking about the first time they met and how he trying to get her back but the timing is never right.

    i can relate to where he coming from.. :(

    A change of pace.... What a band!!!!!!
