​My First Reaction

This song is by Ricky Van Shelton and appears on the album A Bridge I Didn't Burn (1993).

I've found a note you left there on the table
Where you've finally found a way to goodbye
I hurt but I knew somehow I would make it
But my first reaction was to cry

The first thing that I did was fall to pieces
And then I told myself you must be right
Looking back now I know you did the right thing
But my first reaction was to cry

I know that you leaving's for the better
'Cause we keep each other tore up all the time
And common sense says we would never make it
But my first reaction was to cry

The first thing that I did was fall to pieces
And then I told myself you must be right
Looking back now I know you did the right thing
But my first reaction was to cry
Yes, my first reaction was to cry
