First to Finish, Last to Start

This song is by Ted Leo and the Pharmacists and appears on the album Hearts of Oak (2003).

Rain falls, you know it's got to rain
The sky lifts it up and lets it down again
And it's alright, you must accept your part
Being the first to finish or the last to start

And when you meet me on the ledge
We'll all be singing out again
And if you must, then jump away
I'm not afraid, we'll meet another day

Flame burns, it burns its fuel away
It lights up the dark night and warms the cold, cold day
But if you burn too strong you might expend your heart
Being the first to finish and the last to start

The first to finish and the last to start
The first to finish and the last
