06. First Song

The Grafting
by John Schlitt



 

I miss the way it was
When joy came from above
And hope rang like a simple melody
We sang about that day
An innocence regained
Our eyes would open up and finally see

Thatís then and this is now
And weíre older yet somehow
I long to know that music once again
So Jesus lead the way
And show me every day
All I have long forgotten

(chorus)
Just like the first song I remember
Every word was meant for me
And every verse and every line
Would set me free
To remember the first song I was singing
When my eyes were opened wide
When all the years of hurt were put aside
Bring back the first song

Itís a wide and open door
That you donít use anymore
But you know the sun is waiting right outside
It takes a moment now and then
ĎTill the words come back again
From a place youíve long forgotten

(repeat chorus)

I want to hear again
I want to feel again
All Iíve forgotten
Oh, to be free again
Just like I was back then
When everything was so exciting
New to me, new to everything

(repeat chorus)

Oh, when my eyes were opened wide
When all the years of hurt were put aside
Bring back the first song

Words and Music by Dan Needham and Kevan Cyka
