Colleen ( I Saw Him First ) lyrics

colleen (i saw him first)-amanda marshall

Let me tell you about colleen / my best friend since i was three
She always had a taste for dangerous things / her scandalous tongue was extreme
I was always the one left holding the bag / smiling and covering her tracks
Best friends, they always do that / she was the first one to smoke a cigarette
She once let me watch her make love / it was the kind of balance made by kings
She took it all, but left me some / i guess i always thought that she'd have my
Back
But it didn't work out like that / the moment i laid eyes on jack

Chorus
It was my time it was my space / it was the bright red he brought to my face
Every underdog has their day / sorry it hurts / but colleen, i saw him first

It all happened on a thursday / he backed his car right into mine
"there are no accidents", my mother told me once / my heart agreed with her
This time
Colleen jumped out of the car, screaming / "what have you done?!
Jack offered apologies / i just got weak in the knees

Chorus
It was my time it was my space / it was the bright red he brought to my face
Every underdog has their day / sorry it hurts / but colleen, i saw him first

The minute that you're in it / you know there's no turning back
Like me and my jack / a funny thing
To feel the weight of the pendulum swing / when it starts to swing
Colleen, armed with charm and body / still couldn't take my man
Last i heard, she was in rehab / i guess that scale got outta hand
Covered from head to toe in coloured tattoos / searching for higher views /
Hungry for i love you's

Chorus
It was my time it was my space / it was the bright red he brought to my face
Every underdog has their day / sorry it hurts / but colleen, i saw him first

Colleen, i saw him first
