Chapman, Tracy - The First Person On Earth Lyrics




From the water
From the rock and the dirt
You were
The first person on earth

Oh the mountains
And the oceans
Witnessed your birth
The first person on earth

By a river
On the banks of a sandy shore
Untouched clean fresh and pure
The first person on earth

In the light of the sun
You emerged
To see the good in the world
Before the pain and the scourge
The first person on earth

In the quiet in the calm
Before the storm
You heard the dream for a love
That never dies in a poem
The first person on earth

And I'm in love with you
I'm in love with a dream
That can not be realized
Held or seen
By the last person on earth

After the earthquakes the hurricanes
The fires and floods
I'm jaded cynical angry and glum
The world's too absurd and obscene
For true love
And more than happy to let me become
The last person on earth

To let me stand on a rock
The muddy waters surround
Abandoned alone
The end soon to come
As the last person on earth

As the waters rise
At the end of the world
Though I bear the weight
Of the rock and the dirt

I know I'm worthy of your love
As the last person on earth

As the waters rise
At the end of the world
Though I bear the weight
Of the rock and the dirt
I know I'm worthy of your love
As the last person on earth

    "The First Person On Earth"

    From the water
    From the rock and the dirt
    You were
    The first person on earth

    Oh the mountains
    And the oceans
    Witnessed your birth
    The first person on earth

    By a river
    On the banks of a sandy shore
    Untouched clean fresh and pure
    The first person on earth

    In the light of the sun
    You emerged
    To see the good in the world
    Before the pain and the scourge
    The first person on earth

    In the quiet in the calm
    Before the storm
    You heard the dream for a love
    That never dies in a poem
    The first person on earth

    And I'm in love with you
    I'm in love with a dream
    That can not be realized
    Held or seen
    By the last person on earth

    After the earthquakes the hurricanes
    The fires and floods
    I'm jaded cynical angry and glum
    The world's too absurd and obscene
    For true love
    And more than happy to let me become

    To let me stand on a rock
    The muddy waters surround

    The end soon to come
    As the last person on earth

    As the waters rise
    At the end of the world
    Though I bear the weight
    Of the rock and the dirt

    I know I'm worthy of your love
    As the last person on earth

    As the waters rise
    At the end of the world
    Though I bear the weight
    Of the rock and the dirt
    I know I'm worthy of your love
    As the last person on earth

    ''I know I'm worthy of your love''
    The most important lyrics of this song, an affirmation to the Divine that although the human realm is hard only love is real & is eternal. Blessings.

  18. Lyndon Egan

    i thought about using the last verse as a tattoo.. any thoughts anyone..? 

  19. Lyndon Egan

    me and the lady below got this in common 

  20. D.K. Brooks

    I love you Tracy!

  21. HUGH SLESINGER

    I never heard this song before, but I love TC and think this is one of her best. So sad and sweet. Most people don't want to have to think or feel maybe that's why this one isn't a chart topper. Sounds a bit Neil Young influenced to me, I know they are neighbors after all.

  22. 7within

    Aliens it was Tracy Chapman all along .

  23. AdWil

    Wasn't me i was born before that first person

  24. Peter Kovac

    I agree...and I think people dont like sad truth...only some of them can really hear :)

  25. Alex S.

    Agreed - definitely one of her more underrated songs. This is also one of my favorites from the album, one of my alltime favorite albums, period.

  26. Ashtin Chatman

    i think we cousins lmao
