For The Very First Time

I remember how I felt
When I looked into your ocean blue eyes
For the very first time
I felt safe
I felt at home

I remember how I felt
When I met you
For the very first time
I was fifteen, and vulnerable to the world
You were seventeen, and eager to show me the way
I felt safe
I felt at home

I remember how I felt
When you said you loved me
For the very first time
I was sixteen, and delighted that you felt the same
You were eighteen, and knew exactly what to say to make me stay
I felt safe
I felt at home

I remember how I felt
When you lied to me
For the very first time
I was nineteen, and naive to your games
You were twenty one, and you knew how to play your cards

And for the very first time
I did not feel safe
I did not feel at home
I felt lost
I felt alone

Without you
I am nothing
But a hopeless wanderer
Touring unfamiliar land
For the very first time
