For the First Time

Album: When Was the Last Time (2017)
Charted: 58
  • You say you never danced to a dashboard singin' R.E.M. under summer stars
    Never leaned back on a jet black Chevy, blowing smoke rings in the dark
    You don't want to be a rumor, girl, and I feel just the same
    Yeah, I know that you don't know me well but we can make that change

    When was the last time you did something for the first time?
    Yeah, let yourself go, follow that feeling
    Maybe something new is what you're needing
    Like a real life, let your hair down, feel alive
    When was the last time you did something for the first time?

    Say you never drank from the bottle of some two dollar wine, run barefoot through the mud
    Never had the right kiss stolen from your lips, while you watched the sun come up
    Well, I know your friends are watching and they probably disapprove
    But give me just half a chance, girl, I'm daring you

    When was the last time you did something for the first time?
    Yeah, let yourself go, baby, follow that feeling
    Maybe something new is what you're needing
    Like a real life, let your hair down, feel alive
    When was the last time you did something for the first time?

    Now the way you're looking says you're living
    I hope I ain't reading wrong
    'Cause the way you're shining, I think you're thinking
    It's been way too long

    When was the last time you did something for the first time?
    Yeah yeah, let yourself go, come on follow that feeling
    Maybe something new is what you're needing
    Like a real life, let your hair down, feel alive, alive
    When was the last time oh you did something for the first time, girl?
    Come on, baby
    When was the last time, yeah, you did something for the first time? Writer/s: DARIUS C RUCKER, DEREK GEORGE, TRAVIS HILL
