This is the first day of my life
I 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 is the first face that I saw
I think I was blind before I met you
Now 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
That 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 want to 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 it’s different
I mean, I really think you like me

If Stephen and I had a song, I think this would be it.
