First Love – Adele

So little to say but so much time,

Despite my empty mouth the words are in my mind.

Please wear the face, the one where you smile,

Because you lighten up my heart when I start to cry.
Forgive me first love, but I’m tired.

I need to get away to feel again.

Try to understand why,

don’t get so close to change my mind.

Please wipe that look out of your eyes,

it’s bribing me to doubt myself;

Simply, it’s tiring.
This love has dried up and stayed behind,

And if I stay I’ll be a lie

Then choke on words I’d always hide.

Excuse me first love, but we’re through.

I need to taste a kiss from someone new.
Forgive me first love, but I’m too tired.

I’m bored to say the least and I, I lack desire.

Forgive me first love,

Forgive me first love,

Forgive me first love,

Forgive me first love,

Forgive me,

Forgive me first love,

Forgive me first love

Poem – First Love

Falling in love was like falling down the stairs Each stair had her name on it 

And he went bouncing down each one like a tongue-tied 


One day of loving her was an ordinary year 

He transformed her into what he wanted 

And the scent from her 

Was the best scent in the world 

Fifteen he was fifteen 

Each night he dreamed of her 

Each day he telephoned her 

Each day was unfamiliar 

Scary even 

And the fear of her going weighed on him like a stone 

And when he could not see her for two nights running 

It seemed a century had passed 

And meeting her and staring at her face 

He knew he would feel as he did forever 

Hopelessly in love 

Sick with it 

And not even knowing her second name yet 

It was the first time 

The best time 

A time that would last forever 

Because it was new 

Because he was ignorant it could ever end 

It was endless
