For the First Time

She’s all laid up in bed with a broken heart
While I’m drinking Jack all alone in my local bar
And we don’t know how
How we got into this mad situation
Only doing things out of frustration
Trying to make it work, but man these times are hard

She needs me now but I can’t seem to find the time
I got a new job now on the unemployment line
And we don’t know how
How we got into this mess, is it God’s test?
Someone help us cause we’re doing our best
Trying to make it work, but man these times are hard

And we’re going to start by
Drinking old cheap bottles of wine
Sit talking up all night
Saying things we haven’t for a while
A while, yeah
We’re smiling but we’re close to tears
Even after all these years
You just now got the feeling that we’re meeting
For the first time

She’s in line at the dole with her head held high
I just lost my job, I didn’t lose my pride
And we both know how
How we’re gonna make it work when it hurts
When you pick yourself up, you get kicked to the dirt
Trying to make it work, but man these times are hard

And we’re going to start by
Drinking old cheap bottles of wine
Sit talking up all night
Doing things we haven’t for a while
A while, yeah
We’re smiling but we’re close to tears
Even after all these years
You just now got the feeling that we’re meeting
For the first time

Yeah
Sinking old cheap bottles of wine
Sit talking up all night
Saying things we haven’t for a while
We’re smiling but we’re close to tears
Even after all these years
You just now got the feeling that we’re meeting
For the first time 

Yeah
For the first time
Oh
For the first time
Yeah
For the first time
You just now got the feeling that we’re meeting
For the first time 

Oh these times are hard
Yeah they’re making us crazy
Don’t give up on me baby

Oh these times are hard
Yeah they’re making us crazy
Don’t give up on me baby

Oh these times are hard
Yeah they’re making us crazy
Don’t give up on me baby

Oh these times are hard
Yeah they’re making us crazy
Don’t give up on me baby
