Intro:
EE chord AbAb chord DbmDbm chord
AA chord BB chord EE chord
 
EE chord             AbAb chord               DbmDbm chord
This is the first day of my life
AA chord             BB chord                 EE chord
Swear I was born right in the doorway
EE chord                   AbAb chord                         DbmDbm chord
I went out in the rain, suddenly everything changed
                Gb7Gb7 chord              BB chord
They're spreading blankets on the beach
 
EE chord              AbAb chord                 DbmDbm chord
Yours is the first face that I saw
AA chord             BB chord              EE chord
Think I was blind before I met you
EE chord                    AbAb chord                         DbmDbm chord
Don't know where I am, don't know where I've been
         Gb7Gb7 chord              BB chord
But I know where I want to go
 
   EE chord           BB chord       DbmDbm chord
So I thought I'd let you know
         AA chord              BB chord
That these things take forever
 EE chord      EE chord      DbmDbm chord
I especially am slow
    DmDm chord                                                          EE chord
But I realized how I need you and I wondered if I could come home

EE chord                AbAb chord                  DbmDbm chord
I remember the time you drove all night 
AA chord         BB chord              EE chord
Just to meet me in the morning 
EE chord                  AbAb chord                            DbmDbm chord
I thought it was strange, you said everything changed 
          Gb7Gb7 chord                 BB chord
You felt as if you'd just woke up 
 
           EE chord             AbAb chord               DbmDbm chord
And you said, "This is the first day of my life.
AA chord                   BB chord            EE chord
I'm glad I didn't die before I met you.
EE chord             AbAb chord                   DbmDbm chord
Now I don't care, I could go anywhere with you,
      Gb7Gb7 chord            BB chord
And I'd probably be happy."
 
        EE chord       BB chord       DbmDbm chord
So if you want to be with me 
         AA chord                 BB chord
With these things there's no telling 
         EE chord       EE chord         DbmDbm chord
We'll just have to wait and see
                DmDm chord                                                     EE chord
But I'd rather be working for a paycheck than waiting to win the lottery 
 
AbAb chord DbmDbm chord
 
          DmDm chord                                                            EE chord
Besides, maybe this time its different, I mean I really think you like me

Do not ask for strumming patterns. Sharing online how to literally play a song (i.e. strumming, rhythm and tempo) is not allowed by the MPA (Music Publishers Association) because of copyright issues. Carefully listen to the song and "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, it'll go real quick.
