First Love


You’re my first love. You’re my beginning.  You are also my best friend.

You’re the sunshine in the morning,
You’re the Moonlight at the end of the day.
You’re everything I asked for, so you know I can’t let that get away.

You’re my strength when I am weary, and my light to show me the way.
You’re my first love, my beginning. I can’t let that get away.

Loving you has been a sweet Journey, loving you is where I want to be.
Locked in your arms forever, and a day. Because you mean so much to me.
You’re my first love, my beginning, and I won’t let that get away.

Let’s talk about something that we may not agree, it’s called fake news and it’s happened on TV.

So, don’t get this wrong because politicians know – they started fake news.

So, when this first came out they do agree, because they are the ones that started fake news.

So, look in your history book, and you will agree that fake news is not only on TV.

When people of color do great things, it’s not even in the history books – not even on TV.
