Let Me Be the First to Know
by Howard Jones



If you find a time when things just seem to fall apart
And there's no way to keep a cheery face
When the sight of your own reflection only breaks your heart
And all your dreams have given up the chase

Pick up the telephone
You know I'm always home
Any old time of night or day
Let me be the first to know
Let me be the first to know
Let me be the first to know

If you find a time when you just have to walk away
Because of a call to pastures new
You're in need of some fresh words to wish you on your way
You need to fly on up and touch the moon

Sharing this temporary weight
No time to hesitate
I will be everything you need
Let me be the first to know
Let me be the first to know
Let me be the first to know
Let me be the first ...

We're water breaking on an endless wave
Potential bursting from the sea
Compassion is what sets our minds apart
Be cheerful when you break
The chains of morality

Oo, sharing this welcome weight
Don't even hesitate
I will be everything you need
Let me be the first to know
Let me be the first to know
Let me be the first to know
Let me be the first to know
Let me be the first one to know
