The First

The First

Tegan and Sara

Stand up sit down, baby
Gonna be a formal dressdown hey day
We decide why not go downtown
How about you and me we go get wasted

You'll have, you'll have to excuse me
Please please, please excuse me
You'll have, you'll have to excuse me
This will be my first time

By definition from grade school to english 30
We quickly become strong so early
Take it or leave it they can't believe it
They go from kindergarten to killing sprees
They go heartache to inner peace
100 foot ceilings 100 percent deceit
He sais let's leave this between you and me

My cats watch my stuff leve my house
Between you and me the cat burglars are
What did you see what did you steal
Tell me baby how does it feel
Yeah how do you feel

It's a top ten list of things
That move me the most
It's a top ten list of things
That bother me the most
A top ten list of things
That scare me the most
I'd have to say that the future

Wasting time in the fast food line
I decide to walk the fine line
And celebrate life celebrate death
I choose to celebrate the first
I celebrate the first

We decide to go out walking
The whole time that you're talking
Convinced that we're living
Whole time that we're dying

We decide to go out walking
The whole time that we're talking
Convinced that you're living
The whole time that I'm dying

Keeps me on my toes
Where did the time go
You keep me on my toes
Where did the time go

On the edge of town
Where the gravel's thin
They're gonna wear you down
Until you're thin and tired, tired, tired

Of wasting time in the fast food line
I decide to walk the fine line and
Celebrate life celebrate death
I choose to celebrate

The first to come the first to go
The first to say yes
First to say no
