C   E   Am   F   G   C

[Verse 1]

C             E               Am
This is the first day of my life
F             G                 C
Swear I was born right in the doorway
C                   E                         Am
I went out in the rain, suddenly everything changed
                D7              G
They're spreading blankets on the beach

C              E                 Am
Yours is the first face that I saw
F             G              C
Think I was blind before I met you
C                    E                         Am
Don't know where I am, don't know where I've been
         D7              G
But I know where I want to go


   C           G       Am
So I thought I'd let you know
         F              G
That these things take forever
 C      C/B   Am
I especially am slow
But I realized how I need you 
                                C     E   Am   Dsus2   Fsus2  Fsus2
and I wondered if I could come home 

[Verse 2]

C                E                  Am
I remember the time you drove all night 
F         G              C
Just to meet me in the morning 
C                  E                            Am
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.
C             E                   Am
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       C/B      Am
We'll just have to wait and see
But I'd rather be working for a paycheck
                            C            E   Am
Than waiting to win the lottery 

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


E   Am   Dsus2   Fsus2   Fsus2

C   E   Am   Dsus2   Fsus2   Fsus2      C
