First Time In Forever

For the first time in forever
I play our song again
It's been over for some time now
Shall I put it on repeat

The lyrics are the same
But the words seem to have changed
My heart takes an unexpected hit
As I grasp the words in a whole new way

For the first time in forever
I play our song again
So many yesterdays ago
I let you walk away

It made a hole in me
And for the first time
In what could only be forever
I see things how they used to be

I remember all those cracks in me
Right where you used to be
For the first time in forever
They hurt like new

I used to blast it on the radio
Way before I could have known
The damage love could do
I turn the volume – down
For the first time – ever.
