the first love never dies
it just hides itself away
then returns suddenly
and attacks to my dismay

the first love never dies
this is simply the truth
it goes round and round
ruining years of my youth

the first love never dies
it visits every while and then
but i have grown and learned
to accept and be content

the first love never dies
and only care remains
in this chaste friendship
any more i shall refrain
