C (1st) D7 (2nd) E (3rd) F (4th) G (5th) Am (6th) B/C A#7 C#7

intro: C E Am F G C, C E Am D7 G.
[C] This is the [E]first day of my [Am]life
I s[F]wear I was [G]born right in the d[C]oorway
I went out in the r[E]ain suddenly everything [Am]changed, they're spreading
[D7]blankets on the bea[G]ch
[C] Yours is the [E]first face that I [Am]saw
I [F]think I was [G]blind before I [C]met you
Now I don?t know where I [E]am I don?t know where I?ve [Am]been
But I know w[D7]here I want to [G]go
And so I [C]thought I?d [G]let you [Am]know
That t[F]hese things take fo[G]rever
I [C]esp[B/C]ecially am [Am]slow
[A#7]But I realize that I need you
And I wondered if I could come home
[C] [E] [Am] [A#7] [C#7]  
[C]Remember the [E]time you drove all [Am]night
[F]Just to [G]meet me in the [C]morning
[C]And I thought it was [E]strange you said everything c[Am]hanged
You felt [D7]as if you'd just woke [G]up
And you said ?[C]this is the f[E]irst day of my [Am]life
I?m [F]glad I didn?t [G]die before I met [C]you
But now I don?t [E]care I could go [Am]anywhere with you
And I?d [D7]probably be hap[G]py?
So if you [C]want to [G]be wit[Am]h me
With t[F]hese things there?s no[G] telling
We just [C]have to [B/C]wait and [Am]see
But I?d rather be w[A#7]orking for a pay check
Than waiting to win the lotte[C]ry[E] [Am]
[A#7]Besides maybe this time is different
I mean I really think you like me
[C] [E] [Am] [A#7] [C#7] [C]
