THE FIRST THING I SEE
Writer: Melanie Safka

From the 2016 release RAGAMUFFIN

 

The first thing I see

When I wake up to me

Is you

 

And itís hard to believe

Or conceive

What I know to be true

 

Against all the odds

And although lifeís a bitch

With a hole in my heart

Slight reality glitch

 

The first thing I see

When I wake up to me

Is you

 

The light in my window is on

Just in case you pass by

I remember you wonít

And forget there are good reasons why

 

Thereís a little loose end

Where dreams donít come true

Though I tied it in knots

And then hit undo

 

The first thing I see

When I wake up to me

Is you

 

Now I cry for you

And you cry for somebody else

Loveís a conundrum of passions

Heaven and Hell

 

All Iím trying to do

Is to live and let live

Get through this night

Forget and forgive

 

But the first thing I see

When I wake up to me

I cry when I do

ĎCause I know itís not true

But the first thing I see

When I wake up to me

Is you
