"First Words" as written by and Stephanie Lynne Smith....
It was the freshman year of my high school career
Things had barely gotten underway
Before my innocence would be betrayed
Starting with a phone call, a family member dies
And at the funeral I looked into your eyes
For the first time, this was a dream of mine
But you didn't know me, you didn't know my name

The first words you spoke to me
Since you left my family
You didn't call me Stephanie
This will take some getting over don't you agree

But now I'm here
I know it's been a few years
I've shed a few tears and now I have a few things to say
When we met, you broke my heart
14 years old and you tore me apart
But that aside, please know I love you
And more than that, I forgive you

Meeting at a truck stop for lunch
We covered basics, let's keep in touch
Not even a week later, a letter in the mail
You think it's better to let this fail
Another attempt to get to know my father
Efforts exhausted, why did I bother

The first words you wrote to me
Since I made you family
They worried me to the worse degree
This will take some getting over don't you agree

But now I'm here
And now it's been a few years
I've shed a few tears and now I have a few things to say
When we met, you broke my heart
19 years old and you tore me apart
But that aside, please know I love you
And more than that, I forgive you
I forgive you
I forgive you
