[Verse 1]
C             E7              Am
This is the first day of my life
F             G                 C
Swear I was born right in the doorway
C                   E7                        Am
I went out in the rain, suddenly everything changed
                  D7*              G    G7
They're spreading blankets on the beach...

C              E7                Am
Yours is the first face that I saw
F             G              C
Think I was blind before I met you
C                    E7                        Am
Don't know where I am, don't know where I've been
         D7*             G    G7
But I know where I want to go...

[Chorus]
   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
    Dsus2/F
But I realized how I need you
      F7sus2        Fsus2          C
and I wondered if I could come home 

[Instrumental]

[Verse 2]
C                E7                 Am
I remember the time you drove all night 
F         G              C
Just to meet me in the morning 
C                  E7                           Am
I thought it was strange, you said everything changed 
     D7*                   G      G7
You felt as if you'd just woke up...
           C             E7              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             E7                  Am
Now I don't care, I could go anywhere with you,
        D7          G     G7
And I'd probably be happy...

[Chorus]
        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
        Dsus2/F
But I'd rather be working for a paycheck
     F7sus2          Fsus2     C
than waiting to win the lottery 

E7   Am
.......

         Dsus2/F
Besides, maybe this time its different,
         F7sus2           Fsus2  C
I mean I really think you like me

E7   Am
