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 were spreading blankets on the beach
Your's is the first face that I saw
I think I was blind before I met you
Now 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 thought I'd let you know
If these things take forever, I especially am slow
But I realize that I need you
And I wondered if I could come home

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'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.
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'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 it's different
I mean I really think you like me

  1. Ah.... this tune is off my favourite album of theirs. I love the verse
    "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'd just woke up"

    And I can hear Conor's gentle, echo-y, sometimes-trembling voice...
