Even though we’re hearing Kygo & Ellie Goulding‘s new song for the “First Time” today, it sounds astonishingly nostalgic and totally relateable.


Kygo reinforces his reputation as one of the hottest producers in the game with this stunning track. But, to be honest, it’s Ellie’s vocals that make it a hit! It’s been a while since the songstress stepped into the EDM spotlight (“I Need Your Love” with Calvin Harris was released in 2013, and “Lights” back in 2011), and we couldn’t be happier to have her back.

Sing along right now — just hit play, and scroll down for “First Time” lyrics!

KYGO & ELLIE GOULDING – FIRST TIME LYRICS

We were lovers for the first time
Running all the red lights
The middle finger was our peace sign, yeah

We were sipping on emotions
Smoking and inhaling every moment
It was reckless and we owned it, yeah, yeah

We were high and we were sober
We were on and we were over
We were young and now I’m older
But, I’d do it all again

Getting drunk on the train track
Way back when we tried our first cigarettes, oh
Ten dollars was a fat stack
I’d do it all again

Bought my jacket and a snapback
Your dad’s black Honda was our Maybach
Re: Stacks on the playback
I’d do it all again

We were lovers on a wild ride
Speeding for the finish line
Coming to the end of our time, yeah

Started off as a wildfire
Burning down the bridges to our empire
Our love was something they could admire, yeah, yeah

We were high and we were sober
We were on and we were over
We were young and now I’m older
But, I’d do it all again

Getting drunk on the train track
Way back when we tried our first cigarettes, oh
Ten dollars was a fat stack
I’d do it all again

Bought my jacket and a snapback
Your dad’s black Honda was our Maybach
Re: Stacks on the playback
I’d do it all again
