The First Time (Live From Fuse Studios)

Can you believe it
It's been almost ten years now
And I'm getting that feeling
As we're driving 'round this town
Passing by the old school yard
Everything just looks so small
Before the drums and the guitars
Way back when we knew it all
And she's sitting right next to me
Hand in the wind
That old white Cherokee I grew up in
Yeah it's crazy
Crazy, but it's true
[Chorus]
That you never get a second chance at the first time
We will never be 18 again
No you never get a second chance at the first time
Feels so good to see you my old friend
It's good to see you again
Can you believe it
How much everything has changed
Well they shut down the old diner
And they put in some new chain
You know it's so good to see
Whoa, man your hair has got so long
Feels like it's been forever
We're still signing that old song
Well she's sitting right next to me
Hand in the wind
That old white Cherokee I grew up in
Yeah it's crazy
Crazy, but it's true
[Chorus]
That you never get a second chance at the first time
We will never be eighteen again
No you never get a second chance at the first time
Feels so good to see you my old friend
Well you know they say that growing up is hard
Well it's so hard to think of how we almost got so far
Well do you remember on the night of our first kiss
Well baby didn't it feel just a little bit like this
Ooh
Well she's sitting right next to me
Hand in the wind
That old white Cherokee I grew up in
Yeah it's crazy
Crazy, 'coz it's true
[Chorus]
Well you never get a second chance at the first time
We will never be eighteen again
No you never get a second chance at the first time
Feels so good to see you my old friend
It's good to see you again
It's good to see you again [6x]
