When I first came here, I was empty, lost and weak
When I first came here, in your arms I found relief
When I first came here, well I was empty, lost and weak
When I first came here in your arms I found relief

When I first came here, I was searching for a friend
When I first came here, it was your heart that took me in
When I first came here, well, I was searching for a friend
When I first came here it was your heart that took me in

Though I wasn't wrong too long for your beauty
And my eyes were not blind to trust your smile
What they once never showed
Were the endless moments alone that you'd leave behind

No, they once never showed
These ceaseless moments alone
What you'd leave behind

When I first came here, your lips were where each thought began
When I first came here, my craving for you knew no end
When I first came here, your lips were where each thought began
When I first came here my craving for you wouldn't end

When I first came here, each morning we woke spent the week
When I first came here, we seldom used our bed for sleep
When I first came here, we woke each morning spent the week
When I first came here our bed was seldom used for sleep

When I first came here, I fell victim to your touch
When I first came here, I saw and craved this constant blush
When I first came here, well I fell victim to your touch
When I first came here, I saw and craved this constant blush
When I first came here in my memories
