The theme for Song Lyric Sunday this week is first.”

~~~~~~~~~~

You’re the First, the Last, My Everything was Barry White’s fourth top ten hit on the US Billboard Hot 100 singles chart, reaching #2; it spent a week at #1 on the Billboard Hot Soul Singles chart. The track made it to number two on the disco/dance charts. In the UK Singles Chart it fared even better, spending two weeks at the top in December 1974. It appeared on White’s 1974 album Can’t Get Enough.

Peter Radcliffe originally wrote the track as a country song with the title You’re My First, You’re My Last, My In-Between, which went unrecorded for 21 years. White recorded it as a disco song, retaining most of the musical structure while rewriting the lyrics.

Enjoy!

You’re the First, the Last, My Everything

[Verse 1]
My first, my last, my everything
And the answer to all my dreams
You’re my sun, my moon, my guiding star
My kind of wonderful, that’s what you are

[Chorus]
I know there’s only, only one like you
There’s no way they could have made two
You’re all I’m living for, your love I’ll keep forevermore
First, you’re the last, my everything

[Verse 2]
In you I’ve found so many things
A love so new, only you could bring
Can’t you see it’s you? You make me feel this way
You’re like a first morning dew on a brand new day

[Bridge]
I see so many ways that I can love you ’til the day I die
You’re my reality, yet I’m lost in a dream
You’re the first, the last, my everything

[Chorus]
I know there’s only, only one like you
There’s no way they could have made two
Girl, you’re my reality, but I’m lost in a dream
You’re the first, you’re the last, my everything
You and me babe…is you
