[INTRO] E Ab C#m A B E x2
E           Ab              C#m
This is the first day of my life
A                B                 E
Swear I was born right in the doorway
E                 Ab                         C#m
I went out in the rain suddenly everything changed
                      F#            B
They're spreading blankets on the beach

E            Ab                C#m
Yours is the first face that I saw
A              B                E
I think I was blind before I met you
E                Ab
Now I don't know where I am
I don't know where I've been
C#m          F#              B
But I know where I want to go

          E          B        C#m
And so I thought I'd let you know
      A                 B
That these things take forever
     E      Ab    C#m
I especially am slow
But I realize that I need you
                                 E Ab C#m
And I wondered if I could come home


E            Ab                  C#m
Remember the time you drove all night
A          B              E
Just to meet me in the morning
E                      Ab                          C#m
And I thought it was strange you said everything changed
              F#                B
You felt as if you'd just woke up
               E           Ab              C#m
And you said "this is the first day of my life
  A                B             E
I'm glad I didn't die before I met you
E               Ab                C#m
But now I don't care I could go anywhere with you
          F#           B
And I'd probably be happy"

           E      B         C#m
So if you want to be with me
       A                      B
With these things there's no telling
          E      Ab      C#m
We just have to wait and see
But I'd rather be working for a paycheck
F#m                          E Ab C#m
Than waiting to win the lottery
Besides maybe this time is different
F#m                             E Ab C#m
I mean I really think you like me
