[Verse 1]

D             F#            Bm
This is the first day of my life
G             A                  D
Swear I was born right in the doorway
D                  F#                            Bm
I went out in the rain, suddenly everything changed.. they're spreading
E7                A
blankets on the beach

D              F#               Bm
Your's is the first face that I saw
G          A                   D
Thnk I was blind before I met you
D                F#                        Bm
Dont know where I am, dont know where Ive been ... But i
E7                   A
know where I want to go


      D          A         Bm
So I thought Id let you know
     G                  A
that these things take forever
  D    D4         Bm
I especially am slow
         Em                                                     D A Bm
But I realized how I need you and I wondered if I could come home

[Verse 2]

D               F#                 Bm
I remember the time you drove all night
G         A                 D
Just to meet me in the morning
D                 F#                          Bm
I thougth it was strange you said everything changed ... you felt
   E7               A
as if you'd just woke up

              D             F#              Bm
And you said, "This is the first day of my Life"
G                A                D
Im glad I didnt die before I met you
D            F#                   Bm
Now I dont care, I could go anywhere with you... and i'd
    E7        A
Probably be happy


           D      A       Bm
So if you want to be with me
      G                    A
With these things theres no telling
          D      D4          Bm
we'll just have to wait and see
                  Em                                                  D
but id rahter be working for a paycheck, than waiting to win the lottery
        Em                                                           D
