Intro:
DbDb chord FF chord BbmBbm chord
GbGb chord AbAb chord DbDb chord

DbDb chord             FF chord               BbmBbm chord
This is the first day of my life
GbGb chord             AbAb chord                 DbDb chord
Swear I was born right in the doorway
DbDb chord                   FF chord                         BbmBbm chord
I went out in the rain, suddenly everything changed
                Eb7Eb7 chord              AbAb chord
They're spreading blankets on the beach

DbDb chord              FF chord                 BbmBbm chord
Yours is the first face that I saw
GbGb chord             AbAb chord              DbDb chord
Think I was blind before I met you
DbDb chord                    FF chord                         BbmBbm chord
Don't know where I am, don't know where I've been
         Eb7Eb7 chord              AbAb chord
But I know where I want to go

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

DbDb chord                FF chord                  BbmBbm chord
I remember the time you drove all night 
GbGb chord         AbAb chord              DbDb chord
Just to meet me in the morning 
DbDb chord                  FF chord                            BbmBbm chord
I thought it was strange, you said everything changed 
          Eb7Eb7 chord                 AbAb chord
You felt as if you'd just woke up 

           DbDb chord             FF chord               BbmBbm chord
And you said, "This is the first day of my life.
GbGb chord                   AbAb chord            DbDb chord
I'm glad I didn't die before I met you.
DbDb chord             FF chord                   BbmBbm chord
Now I don't care, I could go anywhere with you,
      Eb7Eb7 chord            AbAb chord
And I'd probably be happy."

        DbDb chord       AbAb chord       BbmBbm chord
So if you want to be with me 
         GbGb chord                 AbAb chord
With these things there's no telling 
         DbDb chord       DbDb chord         BbmBbm chord
We'll just have to wait and see
                BmBm chord                                                     DbDb 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
