[C] [E] [Am]  
[F] [G] [C]  
[C]This is the fi[E]rst day of my li[Am]fe
[F]Swear I was bo[G]rn right in the do[C]orway
[C]I went out in the ra[E]in, suddenly everything ch[Am]anged
They're spreadin[D7]g blankets on th[G]e beach
[C]Yours is the fi[E]rst face that I sa[Am]w
[F]Think I was bl[G]ind before I me[C]t you
[C]Don't know where I am[E], don't know where I've be[Am]en
But I kno[D7]w where I want t[G]o go
So [C]I thought I'[G]d let yo[Am]u know
That thes[F]e things take f[G]orever
I[C] especi[C/B]ally a[Am]m slow
But [Dminsus2]I realized how I need you and I wondered if I could come hom[C]e
[G]Dm[Am]insus2 Fminsus2 Fminsus2?
[C]I remember the ti[E]me you drove all ni[Am]ght
[F]Just to me[G]et me in the mo[C]rning
[C]I thought it was st[E]range, you said everything ch[Am]anged
You felt a[D7]s if you'd just wok[G]e up
And you sai[C]d, "This is th[E]e first day of m[Am]y life.
[F]I'm glad I didn't di[G]e before I me[C]t you.
[C]Now I don't ca[E]re, I could go anywh[Am]ere with you,
And I'[D7]d probably be [G]happy."
So if yo[C]u want t[G]o be wit[Am]h me
With thes[F]e things there's n[G]o telling
We'll jus[C]t have t[C/B]o wait an[Am]d see
But I'd rather b[Dminsus2]e working for a paycheck than waiting to win the lotter[C]y
[E] [Am]  
Besides, m[Dminsus2]aybe this time its different, I mean I really think you like m[C]e
[E]Dm[Am]insus2 Fminsus2 Fminsus2?
[C]Dm[E]in[Am]sus2 Fminsus2 Fminsus2?
