"For the First Time" is a song from the Broadway Musical, Tarzan, with Music by Phil Collins. It is a duet sung by Tarzan and Jane as they contemplate and try to sort out their growing affections for one another.

Lyrics

Jane:
This affection I feel is hard to understand
It’s not the way I planned
My world is changing
Wherever I turn
It’s his face I see
Looking back at me
And in my eyes I can’t disguise
The affection I feel
Is getting the better off me

Oh for the first time it’s not a dream
Oh for the first time it seems so real
That I want to remember
Every moment
That I’m there beside him
When he gently takes my hand
So here I am
Feeling things I’ve never felt
And all because of him
My world is changing

Tarzan:
She’s turned my whole world upside down

Jane:
Everything that I do
I do to catch his eye
Well and I won’t deny
I stand here guilty

Tarzan:
I wonder if she feels the same

Both:
Is this affection (as) I feel

Has gotten the better of me

Both:
So for the first time
Can this be love?
Oh for the first time
I know it’s real

Jane:
And with him I feel

Both:
So completely
Uniquely like no other
As he gently holds me close

Jane:
But wait a minute
What am I saying?

Tarzan:
Ne’er thought no

Jane:
I never thought
On a scale so grand

Tarzan:
To be feeling

Jane:
Are these emotions
Racing through me
Tell me I must
Tell me I can

Tarzan:
I never felt these things

Both:
I’m finding who I am
Cause for the first time

Jane:
I have no doubt

Tarzan:
These things she does

Both:
But for the first time
I understand, try to understand
Yes for the first time
I realise
That all the things they strange/separate happened
Well they’re happening to me

Jane:
Every time I’m with that man

Tarzan:
Every time I’m with her

Jane:
Every time I’m with

Tarzan:
Could I be

Both:
That man
