On the first day
You came to me so long ago
With empty hands and broken heart
And I loved you from the start

On the first day
When your other man controlled you
I had to look away
Pretend I didn't see

All the new ways
I saw you through the eyes of a child
The songs you sang just took my heart away
Now I sit and think of you

And the first day
I always said that I would never wed
But we were special in this crazy world
And love was born the day we met

On the first day
You didn't seem to hear me say
Now don't go crazy all the way
Now you're laughing as you walk away

On the last day
