first time in forever lyrics

first time in forever lyrics Kristen Bell, Idina Menzel

The window is open, so’s that door
I didn’t know they did that anymore

Who knew we owned eight thousand salad plates?
For years I’ve roamed these empty halls

Why have a ballroom with no balls?
Finally they’re opening up the gates

There’ll be actual real live people
It’ll be totally strange

But wow, am I so ready for this change!
‘Cause for the first time in forever

There’ll be music, there’ll be light
For the first time in forever

I’ll be dancing through the night
Don’t know if I’m elated or gassy

But I’m somewhere in that zone
‘Cause for the first time in forever

I won’t be alone
I can’t wait to meet everyone!

What if I meet the one?
Tonight imagine me gown and all

Fetchingly draped against the wall
The picture of sophisticated grace

I suddenly see him standing there
A beautiful stranger, tall and fair

I wanna stuff some chocolate in my face
But then we laugh and talk all evening

Which is totally bizarre
Nothing like the life I’ve led so far

For the first time in forever
There’ll be magic, there’ll be fun

For the first time in forever
I could be noticed by someone

And I know it is totally crazy
To dream I’d find romance

But for the first time in forever
At least I’ve got a chance

Don’t let them in, don’t let them see
Be the good girl you always have to be

Conceal, don’t feel, put on a show
Make one wrong move and everyone will know

But it’s only for today

It’s only for today
It’s agony to wait
It’s agony to wait

Tell the guards to open up the gate
The gate

For the first time in forever
Don’t let them in, don’t let them see

I’m getting what I’m dreaming of
Be the good girl you always have to be

A chance to change my lonely world
Conceal

A chance to find true love
Conceal, don’t feel, don’t let them know

I know it all ends tomorrow
So it has to be today

‘Cause for the first time in forever
For the first time in forever

Nothing’s in my way! Woo!
