Summer Camp-Fresh ...our Valentines Day love song..
I swear when I was young, the summers
Were full and fresh and long.
Watching the movies with Andy in Pink
Dreaming of dances bad memories donít blink
I always said that you were a different class,
blue eyes and a messed up past
For every single promise
I reneged every stupid word
I wish I hadnít said.
 
First love is the best love,
First Love is the dream.
First love is a fairytale,
Held tight between you & me
Do you remember the first time?
(Do you?) remember the first time?
(Do you? do you?)
 
Cherish the past, you
Told me to keep what we had
safe.
Make it last, even though I knew
Youíd be a million miles away
And as life happened to me
I know it happened to you
I donít have your number now
But I still see you in everything I do.
 
First love is the best love,
First Love is the dream.
First love is a fairytale,
Held tight between you & me
Do you remember the first time?
(Do you?) remember the first time?
(Do you? do you?)
Do you remember the first time?
(Do you?) remember the first time?
(Do you? do you?)
 
It was the first time that
I failed
First time I lost my head
No heartbreak has ever been as good.
Iíd rather be hurt by you instead.
and at the end of it all
my heart was black and blue
But sometimes late at night I still
Ask myself if you
Remember the first time?
Do you remember the first time?
(Do you?) remember the first time?
(Do you? do you?)
Do you remember the first time?
(Do you?) remember the first time?
(Do you? do you?)
 
I WILL TRY TO FORGET
ABOUT YOU.
I WILL TRY TO FORGET
ABOUT YOU.
I WILL TRY TO FORGET
ABOUT YOU.
I WILL TRY TO FORGET
ABOUT YOU.
