I [D]have a lover[G], a [D]lover like no other[G]
She got [D]soul, soul, soul, sweet s[G]oul
And she [D]teach me how to sing[G]
Sh[Bm]ows me colours when there's no[G]ne to see
Gi[Bm]ves me hope when I c[G]an't believe that
For the f[D]irst time[G] I feel l[D]ove
I have a brother, when I'm a brother in need
I spend my whole time running
He spends his running after me
When I feel myself goin' down
I just call and he comes around
But for the first time I feel love
My father is a rich man, he wears a rich man's cloak
Gave me the keys to his kingdom (coming)
Gave me a cup of gold
He said "I have many mansions, and there are many rooms to see"
But I left by the back door
And I threw away the key...
For the first time
For the first time
For the first time
I feel love
