Song: First Week

Despite the lyrics of this song having to do with trying to resurrect a past love, there's something in them that strums up feelings of hope for a new one. So while it may seem like it could lean towards the dreary side, because of this and it's upbeat chorus, it just doesn't allow it to. No matter where you are when in the game of love, you'll enjoy this tune. Because what's better than that first week of dating someone? Maybe doing it during the summertime? And that's exactly what this song brings to mind.

LYRICS:

Are you far away in a new life? Are you wearing the same dress that you wore when we met the first night? Are you feeling it in a different time? Are you telling the same jokes that you told me when we met the first time? The first time how we slept with the light on And the sun's coming up and we woke up on the floor Everything that you feel that you can't describe Why can't it be like the first week? Am I far away in your thoughts sometimes? Are you telling your friends that you can't live without him like we met the first time? Do you lie awake and wonder why? Is it always the same thing or is this just a new dream that's keeping you up at night The first time how we slept with the light on and the sun's comin up and we woke up on the floor all the things that you feel that you can't describe why can't it be like the first week? I've been up and down your street calling your house I won't wait up till you get home i just maybe better off alone The first time how we slept with the light on and the sun's comin up and we woke up on the floor all the things that you feel that I can't describe why can't it be... The first night how we slept with the light off All the stars shine above And all our clothes are on the floor All the things that I feel that I can't describe Why can't it be like the first week?
