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 was 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

And so I'd thought I'd let you know
That these things take forever, I especially am slow
But I realized that 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 
And I thought it was strange, you said everything changed
You felt as if you 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
But now I don't care, I could go anywhere with you
And I'd probably be happy"

So if you wanna be with me
With 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 is different 
I mean, I really think you like me
