Lyrics

I remember the first time I saw you,
Cross the light of the bonfire at the old farm on highway 6.
Your momma made you come to that party,
My papaw dragged me along.
Our eyes met a few times before we did.
Our lips spoke all the right lines before they did,
It was the power of young love

And I fell so hard
Unaware of the price love could charge
How it can break your heart
Just to put it back together, yeah, yeah
Could not have known how high the stakes
I only knew this heart would give
Whatever love takes.

I remember the day you left,
I thought I’d never love again,
never live again, never look again,
but you know I did.
Married me a good man and had some baby girls
Looking back now I don’t think I even knew what love was
till I held those babies in my arms,
my very own heart sprouted hands and feet,

ah, ooh, ah

I still think about you sometimes
when I wake up to the sunlight on my face
But I wouldn’t go back,
The love I know now doesn’t always sparkle,
but it’s seasoned, it's found its way.
But you were the first,
You taught me that I have a heart that’ll cover love’s cost,
I’ll always remember, I’ll never forget,

How I fell so hard
Unaware of the price love could charge
How it can break your heart
Just to put it back together, yeah, yeah
Could not have known how high the stakes
I only knew this heart would give
Whatever love takes, Whatever love takes,
Whatever love takes, yeah
