Carlos PenaVega's video from the recording of "First Time".

On April 19, 2012, Daniel "Tekneek" Wayne, who also co-wrote the song "Invisible" from Big Time Rush's second album, Elevate, tweeted about working in a studio session with BTR.[2] The same night, Carlos PenaVega posted a video to of himself and Tekneek writing and recording to YouTube.[1] In the video, Tekneek plays one second of the instrumental track.[1] Three days later, on April 22, PenaVega tweeted about another studio session with Tekneek, this time joined by Kendall Schmidt.[4][5]

The instrumental track samples the main riff from the American rock band The Smashing Pumpkins' 1993 single "Today".

Lyrics[]

Just breathe, just breathe
Just you, just me
All the things that I need to say, oh yeah
You're here, you leave
Heart on my sleeve
I don't know how much I can take, yeah
And I've been going crazy
'Cause everything we do
Makes me feel so amazing

When I'm with you (yeah)
You (yeah)
Feels just like the first time
When I'm with you (yeah)
You (yeah)
Still just like the first time
When I'm with you, with you
With you, with you
When I'm with you (yeah)
You (yeah)
Still just like the first time

Your touch, your kiss
I can't resist
Still don't know how much I can take, yeah
I'm on my knees
You're all I need
How you got me feeling this way, yeah
And I've been going crazy
'Cause everything we do
Makes me feel so amazing

When I'm with you (yeah)
You (yeah)
Feels just like the first time
When I'm with you (yeah)
You (yeah)
Still just like the first time
When I'm with you, with you
With you, with you
When I'm with you (yeah)
You (yeah)
Still just like the first time
