Intro:
DD chord GbGb chord BmBm chord
GG chord AA chord DD chord

DD chord             GbGb chord               BmBm chord
This is the first day of my life
GG chord             AA chord                 DD chord
Swear I was born right in the doorway
DD chord                   GbGb chord                         BmBm chord
I went out in the rain, suddenly everything changed
                E7E7 chord              AA chord
They're spreading blankets on the beach

DD chord              GbGb chord                 BmBm chord
Yours is the first face that I saw
GG chord             AA chord              DD chord
Think I was blind before I met you
DD chord                    GbGb chord                         BmBm chord
Don't know where I am, don't know where I've been
         E7E7 chord              AA chord
But I know where I want to go

   DD chord           AA chord       BmBm chord
So I thought I'd let you know
         GG chord              AA chord
That these things take forever
 DD chord      DD chord      BmBm chord
I especially am slow
    CmCm chord                                                          DD chord
But I realized how I need you and I wondered if I could come home

DD chord                GbGb chord                  BmBm chord
I remember the time you drove all night 
GG chord         AA chord              DD chord
Just to meet me in the morning 
DD chord                  GbGb chord                            BmBm chord
I thought it was strange, you said everything changed 
          E7E7 chord                 AA chord
You felt as if you'd just woke up 

           DD chord             GbGb chord               BmBm chord
And you said, "This is the first day of my life.
GG chord                   AA chord            DD chord
I'm glad I didn't die before I met you.
DD chord             GbGb chord                   BmBm chord
Now I don't care, I could go anywhere with you,
      E7E7 chord            AA chord
And I'd probably be happy."

        DD chord       AA chord       BmBm chord
So if you want to be with me 
         GG chord                 AA chord
With these things there's no telling 
         DD chord       DD chord         BmBm chord
We'll just have to wait and see
                CmCm chord                                                     DD 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
