First Timer
Elliott Smith Lyrics


You're a first timer, blaming everybody else
For the hard time you give yourself

In the cold riddle where you find yourself not blocked
By a door you locked

But don't get backed into a corner
Talking to yourself
Come on back to me
My pride tomorrow

You feel hollow
And you know it's because you are
Well at least so far

I think of you with hesitation
I think of you too hard
Come on back to me
But don't make me sorry

You're a first timer, blaming everybody else
For the hard time you give yourself
For the hard time you give yourself

Innocent Bystander

I'm a first timer, wishing I was someone else
When I see you by yourself
In a corridor where you find yourself now blocked
By a door you locked

You won't do what the doctor ordered
You won't see someone else
Come on back to me, my bright tomorrow
You say you feel hollow and you know it's cause you are
Well at least so far

I think of you with hesitation
I think of you too hard
Come on back to me
But don't make me sorry

I'm a first timer, wishing I'd been someone else
Seeing you by yourself
Seeing you by yourself

this song has other lyrics in his first version from 1997:

You're a first timer, blaming everybody else
For the hard time you give yourself
In the cold riddle where you find yourself not blocked
By a door you locked

But don't get backed into a corner
Talking to yourself
Come on back to me
My pride tomorrow

You feel hollow
And you know it's because you are
Well at least so far

I think of you with hesitation
I think of you too hard
Come on back to me
But don't make me sorry

You're a first timer, blaming everybody else
For the hard time you give yourself
For the hard time you give yourself

No one will ever hurt me the way I hurt myself.

Nobody would want to hurt you as bad as you could hurt yourself.

You say you feel hollow and you know it's cause you are
