Cat Stevens The First Cut Is The Deepest Lyrics

Last updated: 06/27/2012 11:00:00 AM

I would have given you all of my heart
but there's someone who's torn it apart
and she's taking almost all that I've got
but if you want, I'll try to love again
baby I'll try to love again but I know

The first cut is the deepest, baby I know
The first cut is the deepest
'cause when it comes to being lucky she's cursed
when it comes to lovin' me she's worst
but when it comes to being loved she's first
that's how I know

The first cut is the deepest, baby I know
The first cut is the deepest

I still want you by my side
just to help me dry the tears that I've cried
cause I'm sure gonna give you a try
and if you want, I'll try to love again
but baby, I'll try to love again, but I know

The first cut is the deepest, baby I know
The first cut is the deepest

'Cause when it comes to being lucky she's cursed
when it comes to lovin' me she's worst
but when it comes to being loved she's first
that's how I know

The first cut is the deepest, baby I know
The first cut is the deepest

Incredible talent | Reviewer: Anonymous | 6/26/12

Have been comparing the lyrics Cat Stevens sang with several of the covers done later. Seems that everybody else left out the two lines:
But when it comes to being loved she's first,
that's how I know

They could not have understood the pain Stevens felt, because they left out the part about love that hurts the most.


Cat Stevens is a legend! | Reviewer: Anonymous | 12/8/08

This version is the one and only for me. I'm 25 from Norway and I'm so pleased that this classic artist has reached even my cold corner of the world! My children will grow up hearing Cat Stevens! Practicing singin so they will have a dad who can introduce them to real music, not modern day junk!

only the best | Reviewer: gill moncrieff | 11/9/08

So many people have covered this song, but for me, Cat Stevens' version is still the best ever. It remains one of my favourite songs and shows that sometimes, the writer still performs the song better than anyone else can( not always the case with some other writers !) Cat Stevens, or Yusuf Islam as he is now known, is one of the greatest musicians and it is great to know that he is now writing and performing once more

this is a classic love that will continue to transend for many decades to come this will strike with anyone, because almost everyone at some piont in there lives loved someone or something that did not love them back. the lyrics were cleverly crafted and could only emerge from someone og great talent
