The First Time (Part I)

I saw you for the first time at the airport
We clutched each other tight in a strong embrace
You kissed my cheek, you said how much
You’ve been looking forward to this…

For the first time… we were friends
In the flesh

Twelve days of holiday
In the midwinter sun, what fun

Twelve days of rain but never mind
We turned up our collars and walked anyway

Twelve days we knew each other better than most

It ended so suddenly
But I was too blind to see

What was to be
