First Day of My Life
by Bright Eyes



This is the first day of my life.
I swear I was born right in the doorway.
I went out in the rain,
suddenly everything changed,
they're spreading blankets on the beach.
Your's is the first face that I saw,
I think I was blind before I met you.
I don't know where I am,
I don't know where I've been,
but I know where I want to go.
So I thought I'd let you know.
These things take forever,
I especially am slow.
But I realize that I need you,
and wonder if I could come home.

Remeber the time you drove all night,
just to meet me in the morning?
And I thought it was strange,
you said everything changed,
you felt as if you just woke up.
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 can go anywhere with you,
and probably be happy.
So if you want to be with me,
these things there's no telling,
we 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 it's different,
I mean I really think you like me.
