(Connor/Oberst) © Bedrooms, Bedrooms and Spiders/Sony/ATV Music Publishing Production 2005 Saddle Creek. 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 spreadin’ blankets on the beach Yours is the first face that I saw Think I was blind before I met you I don’t know where I am I don’t know where I’ve been But I know where I want to go So I thought I’d let you know That these things take forever I especially am slow But I realized that I need you And I wondered if I could come home I 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, 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’ll like me…
