Woke up in the garden shed
Curled up on a makeshift bed
Our fingers and toes entwined
Three drinks and we lost track of the time

You said you would never leave
Carved promises into apple trees
For me

But I’m ruthless
I’m a fool
I think I left my heart at school

My first love would have saved the people
My first would have parted seas
My first love would have sailed to China
And back again for me
My first love was a fearless soldier
My first love would have won hands down
But he’s back there with a wife and children
Back in my home town

We’d wander about for hours
Brave winter and April showers
Broke curfews and household rules
I’d climb walls in a party dress for you

I knew you would never leave
You wore crosses and hearts upon your sleeve
For me

But I am ruthless
I’m a fool
I left you standing there at school

My first love would have saved the people
My first would have parted seas
My first love would have sailed to China
And back again for me
My first love was a fearless soldier
My first love would have hunted you down
But he's there with a wife and children
Back in my home town

And he would call three times a day
When there were no more words
And nothing left to say

But I am ruthless
I'm a fool
I think I lost my heart at school

And my first love would have saved the people
My first would have parted seas
And my first love would have sailed to China
And back again for me
My first love had a bow and arrow
My first love would have hunted you down
But he's there, a forgotten stranger
Back in my home town

My first love
I'll see you around
In my home town
I'll see you around
My first love
I'll see you around
In my home town
I'll see you around
