First Of Me

Album: Every Man For Himself (2006)

Songfacts®:

  • This song is about someone who doesn't want to be perseived as an object of fame and fortune, since losing your identity isn't worth it. The message is to go your own way and be the first you. >>

  • Stephanie from Edmonton, AbThis song makes me feel good about being different than everyone else. Kind of like you don't have to be like everyone and get that white house with the picked fence and 1.5 kids and 2 cars.
    You can be the person you are inside or
    "the first of you"
