[Verse 1]

C              E               Am
   This is the first day of my life
      F          G                  C
   I swear I was born right in the doorway
                      E                       Am
   I went out in the rain suddenly everything changed, they're spreading 
   D7                 G
   blankets on the beach
C               E                 Am
   Yours is the first face that I saw
     F           G              C
   I think I was blind before I met you
                            E                          Am
   Now I don’t know where I am I don’t know where I’ve been
               D7             G
   But I know where I want to go


             C           G       Am
    And so I thought I’d let you know
          F                  G
    That these things take forever
      C  B/C        Am
    I especially am slow
    But I realize that I need you 
    And I wondered if I could come home
    C E Am A#7 C#7

[Verse 2]

    C            E                  Am
    Remember the time you drove all night
    F       G              C
    Just to meet me in the morning
    C                    E                            Am
    And I thought it was strange you said everything changed
             D7                    G
    You felt as if you'd just woke up 
                  C            E              Am
    And you said “this is the first day of my life
        F             G                C
    I’m glad I didn’t die before I met you 
                    E               Am
    But now I don’t care I could go anywhere with you
            D7             G
    And I’d probably be happy”


              C       G     Am
    So if you want to be with me
          F                     G
    With these things there’s no telling
            C       B/C      Am
    We just have to wait and see
    But I’d rather be working for a pay check
                                 C  E Am 
    Than waiting to win the lottery
    Besides maybe this time is different

    I mean I really think you like me


    C E Am A#7 C#7 C

one would notice that your 'g' is weird and sheer curiousity caused me to try it, it sounds pretty bad.
