[F] [A] [Dm]
[Bb] [C] [F]

[F]This is the fi[A]rst day of my li[Dm]fe
[Bb]Swear I was bo[C]rn right in the do[F]orway
[F]I went out in the ra[A]in, suddenly everything ch[Dm]anged
They're spreadin[G7]g blankets on th[C]e beach  [C7]

[F]Yours is the fi[A]rst face that I sa[Dm]w
[Bb]Think I was bl[C]ind before I me[F]t you
[F]Don't know where I am[A], don't know where I've be[Dm]en
But I kno[G7]w where I want t[C]o go  [C7]

So [F]I thought I'[C]d let yo[Dm]u know
That thes[Bb]e things take f[C]orever
I[F] especi[C]ally a[Dm]m slow
But [Gm]I realized how I need you and I wondered if I could come hom[F]e

[A] [Dm]
[Gmadd9] [Bbm2] [Bbm2w8]

[F]I remember the ti[A]me you drove all ni[Dm]ght
[Bb]Just to me[C]et me in the mo[F]rning
[F]I thought it was st[A]range, you said everything ch[Dm]anged
You felt a[G7]s if you'd just wok[C]e up  [C7]

And you sai[F]d, "This is th[A]e first day of m[Dm]y life.
[Bb]I'm glad I didn't di[C]e before I me[F]t you.
[F]Now I don't ca[A]re, I could go anywh[Dm]ere with you,
And I'[G7]d probably be [C]happy."  [C7]

So if yo[F]u want t[C]o be wit[Dm]h me
With thes[Bb]e things there's n[C]o telling
We'll jus[F]t have t[C]o wait an[Dm]d see
But I'd rather b[Gm]e working for a paycheck than waiting to win the lotter[F]y

[A] [Dm]

Besides, m[Gm]aybe this time its different, I mean I really think you like m[F]e

[A] [Dm]
