Kelsea Ballerini’s song, “The First Time” is an extremely relatable song for every girl out there. Everyone has that one person that they’ll always care about. No matter how bad they treat you, you still find yourself holding on.
“Even when you don’t have me. You can still be the one to hurt me. It must feel good to know that I’m still holdin’ on to letting go.”
They always let you down, but you never can get yourself to move on.
“But you never called, never showed up. Guess somethings never change. And just like living in a flashback… you let me down again.”
This song is a good reminder of how important it is to understand your worth. Even though something may seem extremely difficult or even impossible to let go of, know that you deserve better. Goodbye should mean goodbye the first time. Don’t keep them hanging around when they don’t deserve it.
“Like nothings changed except the time that’s passed. And that’s why good-bye should mean good-bye. So now I’m letting you go, just like I should’ve tried the first time.”
