P.P. ARNOLD
"The First Cut Is The Deepest"
(Cat Stevens)

I would have given you all of my heart
But there's someone who's torn it apart
And he's taken almost all that I've got
But if you want, I'll try to love again
Baby, I'll try to love again, but I know

The first cut is the deepest
Baby, I know the first cut is the deepest
'Cause when it comes to being lucky, he's cursed
When it comes to loving me, he's worst
But when it comes to being loved, he's first
That's how I know

The first cut is the deepest
Baby, I know the first cut is the deepest

I still want you by my side
Just to help me dry the tears that I've cried
And I'm sure gonna give you a try
And if you want, I'll try to love again
Baby, I'll try to love again, but I know

Oh yeah
The first cut is the deepest
Baby, I know the first cut is the deepest
'Cause when it comes to being lucky, he's cursed
When it comes to loving me, he's worst
But when it comes to being loved, he's first
That's how I know

The first cut is the deepest
Baby, I know the first cut is the deepest
Oh yeah

Yeah, yeah, baby, baby, baby, I know the first cut is the deepest
Baby, I know the first cut is the deepest
'Cause when it comes to being lucky, he's cursed
When it comes to loving me, she's worst
But when it comes to being loved, he's first
