"The First Time" was about the moment I saw a certain person. This song describes it and the following time that we spent together in words, the absolute mystery of such an encounter. How utterly confused I felt by the probability.


Como puede ser esta puta casualidad
Que se junten los pedazos de la nada
La primera vez que yo te vi fue fantasia
O un escondrijo entre eso y la realidad

Cuando me miraste y preguntaste si te quisé
Yo te mentí, dije no pa disimularme
Y yo me llevo tu lindo beso conmigo
Atrás a mi propia escondida surrealidad

Mi surrealidad


This damned coincidence, how can it be?
That all of the pieces come together from nowhere?
The first time I saw you was a fantasy
Or a hiding place between that and reality

When you asked me if I loved you
I lied, I told you no, and I hid it
I take your beautiful kiss with me
Back to my own hidden surreality

My surreality
