Song Description

I was trying to capture the feel of a first dance. A young kid with his mind racing and thoughts all over the place trying to make a good first impression.

Story Behind the Song

I was thinking of a first Freshman or Middle School dance. Lots of nerves and unknowns.

Lyrics

When I First Saw You
© JD Carroll/Creative Ventures Music, Inc/ASCAP

When I First Saw You I didn't understand
Just what you were about to do to me.
Now when I see you my mind returns to
When it first began.

You were sitting quietly with loneliness on your face
While my mind danced with images I'd found
Then our eyes met and I knew
Love's a feeling you can't erase.

So come along and dance with me and I'm certain that you will see
What lies beyond the world of you and I.
And should you come along I'm sure it won't be long
Before you find how I feel.

I saw you hesitate then quickly turn away
As if someone else had called your name
I gathered up all my courage, made my way across the floor
And somehow managed to ask you for this dance.

You accepted bravely and I took your hand
as the band began to play.
As I held you in my arms I knew right then
I would never let this feeling slip away.

So come along and dance with me and I'm certain that you will see
What lies beyond the world of you and I.
And should you come along I'm sure it won't be long
Before you find how I feel.
