I got these memories
They’re all of you and me
I’ve been recording them ever since I was seventeen
Push playback then rewind
I see us meeting for the very first time
A mental note of you
You sang my melody
First bar in a life long symphony
The prelude to a kiss
My heart’s pounding when I reminisce

Press repeat
‘Cause I want to see
The first time I saw your face
The first time that you spoke my name
The first time that I heard you say
There’s a first time with me everyday
The first time that I felt your touch
The first time I couldn’t get enough

Another memory
When you first looked at me
I hit pause and then love hit me back
Under attack, stopped me in my tracks

There you go again
Your eyes gave me a flashback
Remember that time
We stayed up all night
I swear we danced till we saw daylight

Step by step, and frame by frame
Slow motion
Let me see you again
Press repeat
‘Cause I have to see
The first time I saw your face
The first time that you spoke my name
The first time that I heard you say
There’s a first time with me everyday
The first time that I felt your touch
The first time I couldn’t get enough
The first time that I heard you say
There’s a first time with me everyday

No matter what I do
I wont fast forward anything with you
I know you feel it too
The first time I saw love, I was with you

Press repeat
‘Cause you want to see
The first time I saw your face
The first time that you spoke my name
The first time when we talked all night
Was the first time love made sense in life

The first time I felt your touch
The first time I couldn’t get enough
The first time that I heard you say
There’s a first time with me everyday

The first time I saw your face
The first time that you spoke my name
The first time when we talked all night
Was the first time love made sense in life

The first time that I felt your touch
The first time I couldn’t get enough
The first time that I heard you say
There’s a first time with me everyday

    General Commentwow, just wow
    Amazing song, its about looking back at all the memories you've had with this person, and just wishing you could relive that moment again because it was so amazing. Wishing you could stay in that time and relive it again and again and never moving on...

    General Commentany body got a clue about what Matt Thiessen says in the interlude part (on Dance or Die With a Vengeance) at about 2 18 i'll ____ it up for the first time, _____ it up for the first time..?

    it sounds like a naughty word.
