Intro:
AbAb chord CC chord FmFm chord
DbDb chord EbEb chord AbAb chord

AbAb chord             CC chord               FmFm chord
This is the first day of my life
DbDb chord             EbEb chord                 AbAb chord
Swear I was born right in the doorway
AbAb chord                   CC chord                         FmFm chord
I went out in the rain, suddenly everything changed
                Bb7Bb7 chord              EbEb chord
They're spreading blankets on the beach

AbAb chord              CC chord                 FmFm chord
Yours is the first face that I saw
DbDb chord             EbEb chord              AbAb chord
Think I was blind before I met you
AbAb chord                    CC chord                         FmFm chord
Don't know where I am, don't know where I've been
         Bb7Bb7 chord              EbEb chord
But I know where I want to go

   AbAb chord           EbEb chord       FmFm chord
So I thought I'd let you know
         DbDb chord              EbEb chord
That these things take forever
 AbAb chord      AbAb chord      FmFm chord
I especially am slow
    GbmGbm chord                                                          AbAb chord
But I realized how I need you and I wondered if I could come home

EbEb chord FmFm chord
GbmGbm chord AmAm chord AmAm chord       

AbAb chord                CC chord                  FmFm chord
I remember the time you drove all night 
DbDb chord         EbEb chord              AbAb chord
Just to meet me in the morning 
AbAb chord                  CC chord                            FmFm chord
I thought it was strange, you said everything changed 
          Bb7Bb7 chord                 EbEb chord
You felt as if you'd just woke up 

           AbAb chord             CC chord               FmFm chord
And you said, "This is the first day of my life.
DbDb chord                   EbEb chord            AbAb chord
I'm glad I didn't die before I met you.
AbAb chord             CC chord                   FmFm chord
Now I don't care, I could go anywhere with you,
      Bb7Bb7 chord            EbEb chord
And I'd probably be happy."

        AbAb chord       EbEb chord       FmFm chord
So if you want to be with me 
         DbDb chord                 EbEb chord
With these things there's no telling 
         AbAb chord       AbAb chord         FmFm chord
We'll just have to wait and see
                GbmGbm chord                                                     AbAb chord
But I'd rather be working for a paycheck than waiting to win the lottery

Besides, maybe this time its different, I mean I really think you like me
