about

Love isn't like in the movies. Here's a song about real love.

lyrics

There’s nothing quite like first love
That trembling first kiss
There’s nothing quite like first love
And that’s nothing like this
There’s nothing quite like first love
There’s nothing quite the same
Quinine’s just as bitter
By any other name
There’s nothing quite like first love
That rushing, crashing scream
There’s nothing quite like first love
For crushing your dreams
So please don’t tell me stories about first love tonight
That was then, this is now so turn off the light

There’s nothing quite like fast love
Live love at first sight
There’s nothing quite like fast love
When everything feels right
There’s nothing quite like fast love
There’s nothing quite like that
A wrong note repeated
Still sounds just as flat
There’s nothing quite like fast love
A rollercoaster whirl
There’s nothing quite like fast love
For making me hurl
So please don’t tell me stories about love at first sight
That was then, this is now so turn off the light

There’s nothing quite like new love
Pure and pristine
There’s nothing quite like new love
Just making the scene
There’s nothing quite like new love
Nothing can compare
The purest of methane
Isn’t breathable air
There’s nothing quite like new love
Broken from the start
There’s nothing quite like new love
For breaking your heart
So please don’t try to tell me our love feels new tonight
That was then, this is now so turn off the light
