Intro:
BbBb chord DD chord GmGm chord
EbEb chord FF chord BbBb chord

BbBb chord             DD chord               GmGm chord
This is the first day of my life
EbEb chord             FF chord                 BbBb chord
Swear I was born right in the doorway
BbBb chord                   DD chord                         GmGm chord
I went out in the rain, suddenly everything changed
                C7C7 chord              FF chord
They're spreading blankets on the beach

BbBb chord              DD chord                 GmGm chord
Yours is the first face that I saw
EbEb chord             FF chord              BbBb chord
Think I was blind before I met you
BbBb chord                    DD chord                         GmGm chord
Don't know where I am, don't know where I've been
         C7C7 chord              FF chord
But I know where I want to go

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

Interlude:
FF chord GmGm chord
AbmAbm chord BmBm chord BmBm chord       

BbBb chord                DD chord                  GmGm chord
I remember the time you drove all night 
EbEb chord         FF chord              BbBb chord
Just to meet me in the morning 
BbBb chord                  DD chord                            GmGm chord
I thought it was strange, you said everything changed 
          C7C7 chord                 FF chord
You felt as if you'd just woke up 

           BbBb chord             DD chord               GmGm chord
And you said, "This is the first day of my life.
EbEb chord                   FF chord            BbBb chord
I'm glad I didn't die before I met you.
BbBb chord             DD chord                   GmGm chord
Now I don't care, I could go anywhere with you,
      C7C7 chord            FF chord
And I'd probably be happy."

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

DD chord GmGm chord

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