*This is an awesome song! A bit hard, but it's worth it.
 Watch our video tutorial to figure out the strumming patterns
C - E7 - Am
F - G - C
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 (strum once)  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 (strum once) G    G7
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
      F7sus2        Fsus2          C
and I wondered if I could come home 

G - Am - Dsus2/F - F7sus2 - Fsus2

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 (strum once)       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

        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
     F7sus2          Fsus2     C
than waiting to win the lottery 
E7 - Am

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

E7 - Am
Dsus2/F - F7sus2 - Fsus2
C - E7 - Am
Dsus2/F - F7sus2 - Fsus2
*C (End with C chord)

Keep Rocking!
