First Day of My Life
by 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're spreading blankets on the beach

Yours was the first face that I saw
I think I was blind before I met you
And 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
Yeah, these things take forever, I especially am slow
But I realized that 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 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

My husband put this song on the mix CD he gave me when we first started dating. I could have been killed when a car rear-ended me on my moped a week before we started dating and he came and brought me treats and was just wonderful. When I heard the line that said, "I'm glad I didn't die before I met you" it really resonated and it became our song. I ended up walking down the aisle to an accustic guitar version and our wedding bands have, "This is the first day of my life" inscribed inside. In September, we'll have been together 10 years and going on our third wedding anniversary. Corny, I know, but I pretty much can't hear this song without tearing up, it's the main soundtrack to my life. <3

You know this is the same amount of time with my former lover. We were together for 10 years. It ended unfortunately. We loved this song and everything. There wasn’t I thing we didn’t like about each other. music, movies or personality wise. It was perfect. I should’ve married her a long time ago. We were so close to. I’m Not sure if that would’ve helped, But I really did love her.
