Lyrics

It was hard for me to keep up with you
Or maybe I was too hard on all the secrets you shared
Oh well, oh well, oh well
And as our world spins around
I just don't get it
I just don't get it
And I don't think I ever will

And tonight
I dig your memory up
To kick around my lonesome heart
And I hope the wait is worth
What you could of had from the start
Cause I loved you first
I loved you first

The faith you maintained was not enough
oh baby to find
Salvation for the devil in me
Oh well, oh well, oh well
And as our days slip away from our minds, well
I just don't get it
I just don't get it
And I don't think I ever will

And tonight
I dig your memory up
To kick around my lonesome heart
And I hope the wait is worth
What you could have had from the start
Cause I loved you first
I loved you first

And if I could would you feel the same
Or would it only take up your sins
If I could knock it would you throw me away
Or could I gently be restored again
Oh to feel it all
And to finally say amen

And tonight
I dig your memory up
To kick around my lonesome heart
And I hope the wait is worth
What you could have had from the start
When I loved you first
I loved you first
I loved you first
I loved you first

So long, green eyes
Your life is what you make it
So long, green eyes
Part of me will always be waiting...
