In the song "I want to Break Free" by Queen Freddie Mercury sings
I've fallen in love for the first time
and this time I know it's for real
Is this sentence correct, because it confuses me a little bit, that he says "first time" and "this time". "This time" implies that it happened more than one time yet, but "first time" means, that it never happened before.
Is there a way this can be correct?
