First

  • Is that someone you used to date
    Why is she hanging around here, what's her story
    Doesn't she know that its too late
    That the party is over and the cars' for me

    Why don't you tell her what's been going on
    'cause she seems to be dreaming instead of just leaving
    If you don't have the heart to fill her in
    Then just step aside and let me lay it on the line

    'cause your mine
    And tonight you don't revolve around her
    Your mine
    And this time I'm gonna scream a little louder

    [Chorus:]
    Don't want to be like
    Every other girl in the world
    Like every other one who wants you
    'cause when I see you something inside me burns
    And then I realize
    I want to come first
    I want to come first

    You look at me and I just die
    Its like heaven arriving in my mind and,
    I can't believe all this jealousy
    I used to be a girl who could let a guy breathe
    But your mine
    And tonight you revolve around me
    Your mine
    And this time I'm gonna get a little louder

    Don't want to be like
    Every other girl in the world
    Like every other one who wants you
    'cause when I see you something inside me burns
    And I realize I want to come first
    I want to come first

    Don't want to be like every girl who's tried to get you
    I want to be the one who's never sorry that she met you
    I want to come first [Repeat: x2]
    Hey!

    Don't want to be like
    Every other girl in the world
    Like every other one who wants you
    When i(when i)see you something inside me burns
    And then I realize I want to come first

    Every other one in the world
    Like every other one who wants you
    Cause when I (when I)
    See you something inside me burns
    And then I realize I want to come first. [Repeat: x2] Writer/s: JOHN SHANKS, KARA DIOGUARDI

  • Sandra from Nyc, NyThis song was featured on the "Herbie Fully Loaded" movie which she starred for Disney
  • Jason from New York, NyUmm, I think francheska's take gives Lindsay too much credit for avoiding the obvious single entendre.
