First Day of My Life

Bright Eyes

First Day of My Life - Bright Eyes -

This is the first day of my life
Swear I was born right in the doorway
I went out in the rain, suddenly everything changed
They’re spreading blankets on the beach

Yours is the first face that I saw
Think I was blind before I met you
Don’t know where I am, don’t know where I’ve been
But I know where I want to go

So I thought I’d let you know
That these things take forever
I especially am slow
But I realized how I need you and I wondered if I could come home

I remember the time you drove all night
Just to meet me in the morning
I thought it was strange, you said everything changed
You felt as if you’d just woke up

And you said, “This is the first day of my life.
I’m glad I didn’t die before I met you.
Now I don’t care, I could go anywhere with you,
And I’d probably be happy.”

So if you want to be with me
With these things there’s no telling
We’ll just have to wait and see
But I’d rather be working for a paycheck than waiting to win the lottery
Besides, maybe this time its different, I mean I really think you like me
