Hyman, Phyllis - First Time Together Lyrics

Here I am waiting
Waiting for you to come over
Waiting for the doorbell to ring
Here I am looking
Looking outside my window
Waiting for you to walk down the street

Here I am cooking
Cooking your favorite dinner
All the little things you said you like
Here I am making
Making that special effort
All I want to do is make it right

It's our first time together
And I want to make a good impression on you
It's our first time together
And I want to be on my p's and q's
It's our first time together

Here I am nervous
I'm on pins and needles
Hoping that you won't be late
Here I am worrying
And it's just seven thirty
When I'm not expecting you 'til late

It's our first time together
And I want everything to be just right
It's our first time together
And I want to make sure it's a perfect night
It's our first time together
It's our first time together

Hey, now
I wanna make sure that everything's alright
I wanna make sure I've got the candle light
I wanna make sure you've got everything you need

It's our first time together
It's our first time together

Hey, now
I wanna make sure that everything's alright
I wanna make sure I've got the candle light
I wanna make sure you've got everything you need
I wanna make sure that everything's alright
I wanna make sure I've got the candle light
I wanna make sure you've got everything you need
It's our first time together
And I want to make a good impression on you
It's our first time together
And I want to be on my p's and q's
It's our first time together

    One of the reasons you had to get Phyllis's albums was you knew she was always going to give you one that fit where you was. This was one of those songs from my SIU-C days that I was proud I was able to promote for her. Miss ya Phyllis.

    The Phyllis Hyman hit: its our first time together is a memorable one for me. That was the first song that I sung and played for my girl after meeting her! We were at a park in oak park Michigan in the summer of 2015. She just loved my singing! This was the same woman i would propose to asking her hand in marriage on Christmas, 2017! Those words "yes I will marry you" were music to my ears! I love all hits of Phyllis Hyman! She was extraordinary! I miss her!

  75. Jessey Drew

    A truly good singer, blessed with true talent. Its sad her music became more popular after her death.


    You are so right. It seems like an artist is worth more dead than they are alive, which is a shitty way the music industry or who ever is in charge treats really good talented artists.

    As an ex-personal Mg'r out of NYC, with several vocal and variety artists.

    Love songs have turned into lust songs.I only heard this one time on the radio ever.This is probably the first time I've heard it since the 80's and that's a shame cause this trumps all the songs on mainstream right now.Thank you for this post and I'm adding this one to my classics.

  85. Ocean River

    I miss you Phyllis ... I remember my moms boyfriend telling me he saw your last performance you where on stage at a concert giving that 1 of the best performance of your life.
