C E7 Am7

C             E7              Am7
This is the first day of my life
F             G                 C
Swear I was born right in the doorway
C                   E7                         Am7
I went out in the rain, suddenly everything changed
                D7              G
They're spreading blankets on the beach

C              E7                 Am7
Yours is the first face that I saw
F             G              C
Think I was blind before I met you
C                   E7                         Am7
Don't know where I am, don't know where I've been
         D7              G
But I know where I want to go

   C           G       Am7
So I thought I'd let you know
         F              G
That these things take forever
 C      C/B   Am7
I especially am slow
    Dminsus2                                                    C
But I realized how I need you and I wondered if I could come home 

(Esus4, amin7, Dminsus2, amin-maj7, amin (with pinky finger on the High E)

C               E7                  Am7
I remember the time you drove all night 
F         G              C
Just to meet me in the morning 
C                  E7                            Am7
I thought it was strange, you said everything changed 
          D7                 G
You felt as if you'd just woke up 

           C            E7               Am7
And you said, "This is the first day of my life.
F                   G            C
I'm glad I didn't die before I met you.
C             E7                   Am7
Now I don't care, I could go anywhere with you,
      D7            G
And I'd probably be happy."

        C       G       Am7
So if you want to be with me 
         F                 G
With these things there's no telling 
         C       C/B      Am7
We'll just have to wait and see
                Dminsus2                                               C
But I'd rather be working for a paycheck than waiting to win the lottery 

Esus4 Am7

          Dminsus2                                                      C      Esus4           Am7
Besides, maybe this time its different, I mean I really think you like meeeee

Dminsus2   amin-maj7, amin (with pinky finger on the High E)

C,  Esus4,   Am7,  Dminsus2   amin-maj7, amin (with pinky finger on the High E)

End on C

This is the PROPER way to play this

However, you can use E major chords in place of E7, and am in place of [ch]Amin7[/ch]  

Key of Actual song is E, but played in the C position Capo 4
