First Day of My Life
Bright Eyes Lyrics


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 thought I'd let you know
Yeah, these things take forever, I especially am slow
But I realized 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 just have to wait and see
But I'd rather be working for a paycheck
Than waiting to win the lottery, ah-ha, mm-hmm

Besides, maybe this time is different
I mean, I really think you like me

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

Yours is the first face that I saw
Think I was blind before I met you
And I don't know where I am,
Don't know where I've been,
But I know where I want to go...

So I thought I'd let you know,
Yeah, 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 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...

He could be referring to his mom, his girlfriend or his best friend. That's why this song is so beautiful

I hope someone reads this, I can’t put into words the memories this song brings back I remember my mom playing this when my brother and I woke up years ago, I live across the country from both of them and rarely get to see them and only live with my dad. I know I’m a random person of a comment section of a YouTube video but I really hope that someone sees this.
