First Time Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Remember once I told you about
How before I heard it from your mouth
My name would always hit my ears as such an awful sound
And the soul, if that’s what you’d call it
Uneasy ally of the body, it felt nameless as a river
Undiscovered underground

[Pre-Chorus]
And the first time that you kissed me
I drank dry the River Lethe
The Liffey would have been softer on my stomach all the same
But you spoke some quick new music
That went so far to soothe this soul
As it was and ever shall be, unearth without a name

[Chorus]
Some part of me must have died
The first time that you called me, “Baby”
And some part of me came alive
The first time that you called me, “Baby”

[Verse 2]
These days I think I owe my life
To flowers that were left here by my mother
Ain’t that like them, giftin’ life to you again
This life lived mostly underground
Unknowin’ either sight nor sound
‘Til reachin’ up for sunlight just to be ripped out by the stem

[Pre-Chorus]
Sensing only now it’s dyin’
Drying out, then drowning blindly
Bloomin’ forth its every colour
In the moments it has left
To share the space with simple living things
Infinitely suffering, but fighting off like all creation
The absence of itself, anyway

[Chorus]
Some part of me must have died
Each time that you called me, “Baby”
But some part of me stayed alive
Each time that you called, each time that you called

[Bridge]
Come here
Ooh-la-la, ooh-la-la
Whatever keeps you around, it keeps you around
Ooh-la-la, come here, ooh-la-la
Whatever keeps you around, it keeps you around

[Verse 3]
The last time it was heard out loud
The perfect genius of our hands and mouths were shocked
To resignation as the arguing declined
When I was young I used to guess
Are there limits to any emptiness?
When was the last time
Come here to me, when was the last time?
[Chorus]
Some part of me must have died
The final time that you called me, “Baby”
But some part of me came alive
The final time you called me, “Baby”
