Parallel Loves

The other night, I met a girl who just landed in Los Angeles a week ago with practically the same situation with her recent ex as I had with mine. Our stories though different, ended on parallel terms and it reminded me of the First Love a cappella cover I did while I was still living in NY.

I learned the [very simple] piano accompaniment to it so I decided to redo the song. It so succinctly puts my feelings from 3 years ago into words that I can’t help but love this song which speaks about the loss of the same sentiment.

The video is still uploading to youtube and I’ve got to go to the gym so if you want to give a listen check back here later. Uploaded! :)



First Love by Adele

So little to say but so much time
Despite my empty mouth the words are in my mind
Please wear the face: the one where you smile
Because you lighten up my heart when I start to cry

Forgive me first love but I’m tired
I need to get away to feel again
Try to understand why
Don’t get so close to change my mind

Please wipe that look out of your eyes
It’s bribing me to doubt myself
Simply, it’s tiring

This love has dried up and stay behind
& if I stay I’ll be alive
Then choke on words I’d always hide
Excuse me first love but we’re through
I need to taste the kiss from someone new

Forgive me first love but I’m too tired
I’m bored to say the least and I… I lack desire
Forgive me first love…
