First Love


(demo)

You called me your "first love", as if I weren't hurt enough.
You leveled my pride, my hope for us cast aside.
The life that we built, the family we swore to share,
All gone in a moment: a "first love" is love not there.

You're proud of your choices, you're happy to be set free.
Those two words relieve you, a "first love" is memory.

All that I ask, all that I need,
I know I deserve, I hope you agree:
Honor our friendship, honor our love,
Tell me without me your life's not enough.

I know that we're over, it's obvious you've moved on.
There's no happy ending, I'm not searching for shangri-la.
But I am no memory. I'm flesh and blood, I'm still me.
When you call me your "first love", it's hard to breathe.

All that I ask, all that I need,
I know I deserve, I hope you agree:
Honor our friendship, honor our love,
Tell me without me your life's not enough.

The promises shared, will always be there, you are not dead to me.
As hurt as I am, I'll give what I can, I want to be friends, so please:

All that I ask, all that I need,
I know I deserve, I hope you agree:
Honor our friendship, honor our love,
Tell me without me your life's not enough.
