Your First True Love


Lyrics

"Your First True Love"
Music by Scott Cooley.  Lyrics by Lenore & Scott Cooley.

You say you’re lonely and you’re on a quest

Lookin’ for the one, lookin’ for the best

But you don't understand that finding love is a test

Sometimes you’ve gotta fail before you taste success


You think you’ve been in love a time or two

But yet you’re still looking for someone new

And you wonder how you’re gonna know when it’s true

Will you ever find the one who’s meant for you


Now you ask me how you’ll know when love is real

And you’re dyin’ to know how it’ll make you feel   (what I know is)


Your first true love is the one you still have now

All you have to do is believe, there’s no need to wonder why or how

Your first true love grows stronger every day

You may not ever understand it, but you’re thankful in every way

You feel it in your soul, and you know it’s there to stay

Your first true love is the one you've got today


So you don’t know how it went on your latest date

Or why you’re always bouncing from mate to mate

Could it be it’s all about the thrill of the chase

Do you ever stop to think that you’re tempting fate?


Maybe all you want is a temporary fix

Just long enough to get a few kicks

Burnin’ fast like a candle wick

Then you’re sad that it was over too quick


Now you ask me how you’ll know when love is real

And you’re dyin’ to know how it’ll make you feel   (what I know is)


Your first true love is the one you still have now

All you have to do is believe, there’s no need to wonder why or how

Your first true love grows stronger every day

You may not ever understand it, but you’re thankful in every way

You feel it in your soul, and you know it’s there to stay

Your first true love is the one you've got today


Your first true love is the one you've got today

Brief Description

I made what I originally thought was the mistake of asking my wife to take a look at the lyrics and tell me what she thought.  She made enough suggestions that I decided to keep (which significantly improved the song) that I had to give her co-writing credit where it was due.  Although I'm usually opposed to straying from my do-it-all-myself approach, this is a classic example of how co-writing (and re-writing for that matter) can definitely pay off.
