Love Is A First - Lyrics

Pin It Now!

Last played: 2013/02/14 Toronto, ON
Debut: 2009/04/27 Kitchener, ON
Notes: The first single released from 'We Are The Same'. It was a setlist throughout the 2009 'WATS Tour' and continues to be. It's a very unique song and I'm sure it has its fans as well as its detractors. Me? I'm fine if I hear it and I'm fine if I don't.


I've been interpreted and shrunk
I've been as touch-less as a drunk

This is as bad as or worse as bad as or worse
This is as bad as or worse as bad as or worse

Love is a curse (That he who would own it deserves)
Love is a curse (You get what you give not deserve)

I know I know this is all just first blurts that he who would try to own it deserves it
And I know it's got nothing to do with ‘deserves it'
It's just that you don't just blurt, Love is a curse Love is a curse Love is a curse
You don't just blurt, Love is a curse

Though I've been too weak to escape
And I don't have the strength to pluck a grape

Though it's as bad as worse as bad as or worse
Though it's as bad as or worse as bad as or worse

Love is a first (I've felt the dull fangs of the truth)
Love is a first (I've heard the music they torture to)
Love is a first (I saw Old Power enforced)
Love is a first (I was more the Devil Of Darkness' horse)

I drank the poison from the source
And smoked that murder fell on the floor
And watched the near-death of your TV
And dreamed its darkly nurtured dreams
And drained my ocean of its worth
Like God's representatives on earth
Learned how to hurt and how not to hurt
The thing you taught me what I learned?
Love is a first

Though it's as bad as or worse as bad as or worse
As bad as or worse as bad as or worse

Love is a curse (That he who would own it deserves)
Love is a first (Though it occurs and occurs)
Love is a curse (You get what you give not deserve)
Love is a first (Love just occurs and occurs)

Love is a first
