Yeah yeah, yeah yeah, yeah

First drink of the night just to get me right
The first light of the day I know I've got it all wrong
First pill that you drop only sets it off
The next morning you wake up all blurry and numb

Before all the damage securities
Before all your innocence is all lost
Think back to the time you were all alone
One day you'll look back and say where's it all gone?

Sometimes we get lost inside our little heads
Don't sleep, just yet, we all know that there's nothing like the
First love, first time, there ain't nothing like the first time
Passed out, last night, there ain't nothing like the first time

Taking all the meds (first love)
Sleeping with her friends (first time)
Find out in the end ain't (there ain't)
Nothing like the first time (nothing like the first time)
Stuck inside her head (passed out)
Jumping in her bed (last night)
Find out in the end ain't (there ain't)
Nothing like the first time (nothing like the first time)

Yeah yeah, yeah yeah, yeah
(Nothing like the first time)

First time on a plane, said she's paranoid
Tried to make her feel safe and said it all wrong
First time in LA so she can't avoid
Leaving life she's failing all along

Sometimes we get lost inside our little heads
Don't sleep, just yet, we all know that there's nothing like the
First love, first time, there ain't nothing like the first time
Passed out, last night, there ain't nothing like the first time

Taking all the meds (first love)
Sleeping with her friends (first time)
Find out in the end ain't (there ain't)
Nothing like the first time (nothing like the first time)
Stuck inside her head (passed out)
Jumping in her bed (last night)
Find out in the end ain't (there ain't)
Nothing like the first time (nothing like the first time)

Yeah yeah, yeah yeah yeah
(Nothing like the first time)
Yeah yeah, yeah yeah yeah
(Nothing like the first time)

    General Commentum...."before they wrote nonsense"?? They've always done a combination. Have you heard of the song "Depends"? Or "Just About Done" or "TV"....and they occasionally still write serious lyrics. Heard of STFTK? anthem part 2? Dont go shooting your mouth off without thinking. I agree they've gotten "poppier" but I HATE to categorize. They're still good, and I like them. Yes, I liked them before enema, but the guys have grown and it's ridiculous to expect the music to stay the same.

    General Commenttime might be one of my favorite blink songs of all time. this song just does alot for me and its gotten me through some tough times. anyway...

    the main difference b/w old blink and new blink is simple. old blink (before enema) was pop-PUNK. new blink is POP-punk. they've never been a truely punk band, and never will be. but they used to have less of an emphasis on the pop aspect and more on the punk.

    General Commentsimple lyrics but very true.
    i like listening this in my car when i'm late.

    and i love this line:
    "And I don't want to worry
    About being on time " to me, it's kind of equivalent to the line "I wish the real world, would just stop hassling me"

    General CommentI like how the song starts out slow and goes through two phases before it ends up being fast.
    Sort of symbolizes the way time goes faster as you grow older.

    General CommentGood song, and god..AmericanBeautyAN...you need to get a life, you're laughable almost. It's true the blinksters always had a pop element to them which has gradually become more obvious in their music, but as Phyxius said..Blink 182 have a mixture of serious and not so serious ones - and they're all good!
    'damn they should just be the way they were before... ' statements like that almost sadden me, clueless child..

    General Commentthis is a brilliant song

    and by the way i also think that blink was a lot better before the started taking themselves so seriously

    My OpinionI don't understand why they never re-did this song after Buddha, its such a good song, better than most on Chesire Cat, of course it's not like Carousel or Wasting Time, but it still is great.
