Imaginary Future - The First Thing I See Lyrics

I saw two stars on a cold autumn night
You said that they were the headlights of an alien car
Coming to tell us that we'll be alright

Remember you told me that love isn't blind
Its more like you're watching the world through a new set of eyes
Finding the colors that usually hide

Oh, I don't know where I'm going
Oh, I don't know where I'll be
But it doesn't matter
'Cause every morning
When I wake you're the first thing I see

Sometimes it's hard to be still in your skin
The questions and outcomes can shake you and spin you and then
You're back on the floor, you're back in your head

But if I'm the ocean then you are the tide
Taking my heart in your hands as we move through this life
Greeting the moon, I'm in the sky

Oh, I don't know where I'm going
Oh, I don't know where I'll be
But it doesn't matter
'Cause every morning
When I wake you're the first thing I see

Oh, oh

Oh, I don't know where I'm going
Oh, I don't know where I'll be
But it doesn't matter
'Cause every morning
When I wake you're the first thing I see

    you both are too pretty.. I Always imagine could I and my future hubby be like you two or more beauty.. ? I guess We will try, and we'll be okay as long as We have each other We're Home cause I'll spend my whole life loving him and I'm meant to be loved by him.

    Just revisiting this 😊

  3. syida tahir

  5. morenaGirl PH

    I forgot that I commented on this saying how I want this to be my wedding song when I’m not even engaged yet. Crazy because just a few days after posting the comment, my boyfriend, now my fiancè asked me to marry him. And our playlist surely includes a lot of Kina’s songs.
    p.s. hi Kina, if you get to read this, I would love to hear your cover of I don’t want to miss a thing.

  6. Hayley Nicole Music

    does anyone know the chord progression for this beautiful song?

  7. Peter Peterson

    amazing singing

  8. Worralltheungreat

    for some reason i heard "i saw two lovers in the heat of a fight" .. for the second line of this song but the actual line works too lol

  9. fenì music

    Can we please please pretty please have the sheet music to this? ☺️❤️

  10. Tomine Lunde

  12. Punkettia

    This gave me tears to my eyes! Especially now that me and my partner are having our anniversary next month! Do you guys know the Ukulele chords for this? I want to sing this for him on our anniversary. Thank you so much for the help!!! <3

  13. Angela Ds

    This has a deep trance that shifts you to another zone. You just flow with the music. Amazing ♥♥♥♥

  14. Rupan Deka

    please make a guitar tutorial for this song..

  15. Wendy Malatji


  16. Laurel Archer

    Yes you are soo creative! I love that you can make a story out of these cute little aliens, how they are separated and come back together again. So cute!! And the music is awesome - your voices are perfect together :)

  17. Annie Wang


  18. Matthew Wilson

    Thanks Kina, I needed that!!
    (Visually & Auditorily)
    You've officially become the 1st person / "channel" to cause Me to hit the "Subcribe to Everything Bell" on YouTube.
    That should speak volumes to Both You & Imaginary Future on Your work together!
    Don't get Me wrong; the songs You've covered is what caused Me to become a subcriber.
    Omg, You have an extraordinary voice!!
    (What a beautiful instrument to be gifted with having.)
    But, "What made Me hit the Bell" today was the video & song, as Both are Original Works!
    I'm slightly biased in that manner as that's what I do as a musician, (although I Can & Do appreciate both because a cover becomes One's own signature arrangement from a new perspective.
    What I'm trying to say, and should have just said this at the beginning is:
    "Bravo Kina, Bravo!"
    (Naturally that includes lots of applause, a standing ovation, and I actually bow respectfully to You!!)👍
    Very warmly, Very sincerely, -Matthew.
