Intro:
EbEb chord GG chord CmCm chord
AbAb chord BbBb chord EbEb chord

EbEb chord             GG chord               CmCm chord
This is the first day of my life
AbAb chord             BbBb chord                 EbEb chord
Swear I was born right in the doorway
EbEb chord                   GG chord                         CmCm chord
I went out in the rain, suddenly everything changed
                F7F7 chord              BbBb chord
They're spreading blankets on the beach

EbEb chord              GG chord                 CmCm chord
Yours is the first face that I saw
AbAb chord             BbBb chord              EbEb chord
Think I was blind before I met you
EbEb chord                    GG chord                         CmCm chord
Don't know where I am, don't know where I've been
         F7F7 chord              BbBb chord
But I know where I want to go

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

DbmDbm chord EmEm chord EmEm chord       

EbEb chord                GG chord                  CmCm chord
I remember the time you drove all night 
AbAb chord         BbBb chord              EbEb chord
Just to meet me in the morning 
EbEb chord                  GG chord                            CmCm chord
I thought it was strange, you said everything changed 
          F7F7 chord                 BbBb chord
You felt as if you'd just woke up 

           EbEb chord             GG chord               CmCm chord
And you said, "This is the first day of my life.
AbAb chord                   BbBb chord            EbEb chord
I'm glad I didn't die before I met you.
EbEb chord             GG chord                   CmCm chord
Now I don't care, I could go anywhere with you,
      F7F7 chord            BbBb chord
And I'd probably be happy."

        EbEb chord       BbBb chord       CmCm chord
So if you want to be with me 
         AbAb chord                 BbBb chord
With these things there's no telling 
         EbEb chord       EbEb chord         CmCm chord
We'll just have to wait and see
                DbmDbm chord                                                     EbEb 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
