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 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

The first time I heard this song was at my sister's wedding 14 years ago. I heard it for the second time, at her funeral yesterday. It will forever be a song for her. ❤❤❤

The best line is "I'd rather be working for a paycheck than waiting to win the lottery." Everyone who believes in the crap about "soulmates" should keep this line in mind - there isn't one perfect person out there for you, with whom you will be forever happy with no problems. Love is hard work; it's sometimes putting your own feelings aside for the sake of the one you love, it's even (God forbid) being willing to change. Don't stick around in a toxic relationship, of course, but don't bail at the first problem. This is advice from someone who's been married since 1981.

It's so much hard work, I worry it will never be easy again after COVID. I need to go on a date with my husband but I have a toddler (born just before lockdown) and we changed so much in just one year. No dates for an entire year. I changed jobs. We are all at sea. I miss the old "us" and worry those people we were are now dead.

Sometimes, many times people get trapped with toxic people..because toxic people are preying mantis. Look out for those who can't leave, listen and help them. End the reign of predators destroying people in the name of "bad relationships"

@Ella Edwards theres no reason to be rude like that. I mean if thats how you treat people then take your own advice and "shut up".
