"First Time" (also known as "Very First Time") is an unreleased song by Ariana Grande featuring Greyson Chance that was most likely intended for her debut album, Yours Truly. (Unreleased Icon listen)

Background[]

When Ariana was being interviewed at The Roxy Concert on February 19, 2012, the interviewer asked Ariana if there were any upcoming collabs, and she responded that her & Chance were supposed to be writing together soon.[1]

On February 27, 2012, Chance had tweeted saying, "In the studio with @ArianaGrande today! So excited..can't wait to see my little redhead again!!"[2]

A day later on February 28, 2012, Chance tweeted, "@ArianaGrande such a great two days! Can't wait for the fans to hear this one... #oldschool."[3]

Chance tweeted again on March 1, 2012, "I just got out of the studio with my good friend Ariana Grande! It was so great to be writing music with...".[4]

Chance tweeted hinting and teasing the song they both made together on April 10, 2012, by saying "@ArianaGrande You probably have the best voice I ever heard!!! Our song is amazing by the way (:".[5]

The first snippet leaked when the song was being sold by the same user who privately sold "Like That" on December 2, 2021.

A lot of people used to think that this song was "Human" after a YouTube video reporting on the snippet featured the wrong one, as both of the songs were circulating around the same time.

On February 16, 2023, a second snippet leaked. Later that same day the full song was leaked.

Trivia[]

  • A snippet of the song was uploaded and sold by the same person who also sold "Remember" to others before the song leaked shortly after.

Lyrics[]

[Intro: Greyson Chance, Ariana Grande]
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
Oh!
Yeah, ey, yeah
Hey!
Hahaha (Aw, man)

[Verse 1: Greyson Chance, Ariana Grande]
Ooh, wishing you were here right now
You're like a fire in the distance, I can’t put you out
And I can hear nothing else, my heart's beating so loud
Oh, darling, ain't nobody can do what you do
And when you’re missing he can’t fill your shoes
And you got me running, running back to you all the time, yeah

[Pre-Chorus: Greyson Chance, Ariana Grande]
And your love
It makes me high when I'm feeling down
And your touch takes me faster than the speed of sound
And I know a million days have passed, but I don't mind

[Chorus: Greyson Chance]
'Cause when I see your eyes it feels like the very first timе

[Pre-Chorus 2: Greyson Chance, Ariana Grande]
Your smile lights me up when I'm lost in thе dark
And your lips
They give me loving when I need it the most
And I missed you when you were gone but, baby, I don't mind

[Chorus: Greyson Chance, Ariana Grande, Both]
'Cause when I see your eyes it feels like the very first time
The very first time
The very first time
Ah, yeah
The very first time
Ah, yeah
The very first time

[Verse 2: Greyson Chance, Ariana Grande]
I know we fight but then we always make up
Oh, like Romeo and Juliet forbidden love
And I may be gone, but baby, ain't no shame
You got me all tied up
And, oh, honey, I've been thinking about (Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh)
When you finally get to see it, I'mma twist and shout
And I ain't gonna control myself I can't hold back
'Cause I need you, oh
Ah-ah-ah-ah

[Pre-Chorus: Greyson Chance, Ariana Grande]
And your love
It makes me high when I'm feeling down
And your touch takes me faster than the speed of sound
And I know a million days have passed, but I don't mind

[Chorus: Greyson Chance]
'Cause when I see your eyes it feels like the very first time

[Pre-Chorus 2: Greyson Chance, Ariana Grande]
Your smile lights me up when I'm lost in the dark
And your lips
They give me loving when I need it the most
And I missed you when you were gone but, baby, I don't mind

[Chorus: Greyson Chance, with Ariana Grande]
'Cause when I see your eyes it feels like the very first time

[Bridge: Ariana Grande, Greyson Chance, Both]
You knew, you knew, you knew it (Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh)
You knew, you knew, you knew, ah-ah
You knew, you knew, you knew
You know

'Cause when I see your eyes
Oh, it feels like the very first time

[Pre-Chorus 2: Greyson Chance, Ariana Grande]
Your smile lights me up when I'm lost in the dark
And your lips
They give me loving when I need it the most
And I missed you when you were gone but, baby, I don't mind
