First love’s gonna getcha.
I thought I understood it…but I only understood the idea of it.
Only fools rush in…
My first love? It was the real thing, pure and powerful, and we didn’t know how to handle it, and outside forces tipped us over, and we fell, and clung to one another, until she gave up, and…for years I thought of her every day, a shadow of sunlight, every day, for years I thought of her.
