F F A A Dm Dm Bbadd9 Bbadd9 C C F F x2

F F A A Dm Dm
This is the first day of my life
Bb Bb C C F F
Swear I was born right in the doorway
F F A A Dm Dm
I went out in the rain, suddenly everything changed
G7 G7 C C C7 C7
They're spreading blankets on the beach


F F A A Dm Dm
Yours is the first face that I saw
Bb Bb C C F F
Think I was blind before I met you
F F A A Dm Dm
Don't know where I am, Don't know where I've been
G7 G7 C C C7 C7
But I know where I want to go


F F C C Dm Dm
So I thought I'd let you know
Bb Bb C C
That these things take forever
F F C C Dm Dm
I especially am slow
Gm Gm F F Asus4 Asus4 Dm Dm Gmadd9 Gmadd9 Bbm Bbm
But I realize that I need you and I wondered if I could come home


F F A A Dm Dm
I remember the time you drove all night
Bb Bb C C F F
Just to meet me in the morning
F F A A Dm Dm
I thought it was strange, you said everything changed
G7 G7 C C C7 C7
You felt as if you'd just woke up


F F A A Dm Dm
And you said, "This is the first day of my life.
Bb Bb C C F F
I'm glad I didn't die before I met you.
F F A A Dm Dm
Now I don't care, I could go anywhere with you,
G7 G7 C C C7 C7
And I'd probably be happy."


F F C C Dm Dm
So if you want to be with me
Bb Bb C C
With these things there's no telling
F F C C Dm Dm
We'll just have to wait and see
Gm Gm F F Asus4 Asus4 Dm Dm
But I'd rather be working for a paycheck than waiting to win the lottery.
Gm Gm F F Asus4 Asus4 Dm Dm Gmadd9 Gmadd9 Bbm Bbm
Besides, maybe this time it's different, I mean I really think you like me.

F F Asus4 Asus4 Dm Dm Gmadd9 Gmadd9 Bbm Bbm

@KasperKid: Play a Gm7 instead, it should do the trick.

The spacing of the chords makes it almost impossible to play. Half of them don't even make it on the screen

Chords are all right, but the timing seems off to me
