The First Time

All the nightmares that were dreams
The darkness the truth brings
All the friends we always wanted
And we’re right back where we started

Do you think of where we are now?
All the struggles, we backed down
Biting teeth, held my tongue
Fought the battles you had won

And we wanted, more than anything
That one dream, to be…
The kids that never grew up
(Well guess what?)

Rose-tinted, those glasses
Looking back and the past is
So much brighter
A little better
A little lighter, than it was
The first time around

All the crying that we did
The secrets that we hid
It all starts to get hazy
Were we really that lazy?

And we wanted, more than anything
That one dream, to be…
The kids that never grew up
(Well guess what?)

Rose-tinted, those glasses
Looking back and the past is
So much brighter
A little better
A little lighter, than it was
The first time around

And do you think of who we were?
The friendships that were turned
Faded memories of all the words
Apologies we should have heard
Maybe in the end we had learned
And yet we still look back through

Rose-tinted, those glasses
Looking back and the past is
So much brighter
A little better
A little lighter, than it was
The first time around

Rose-tinted, those glasses
Looking back and the past is
So much brighter
A little better
A little lighter, than it was
The first time around
