Bright Eyes First Day Of My Life Lyrics

Last updated: 03/29/2012 11:00:00 AM

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'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 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 is different
I mean I really think you like me

First day I heard this song | Reviewer: Not Really A fan | 3/29/12

I would give this song about a 2 1/2 or a three. It was nice but not really what I expected. It is just one of those types of songs that you hear and you feel like you want to cry because it reminds you of your past. Not the kind of song for me, but I will show it to my bestie.

I feel terrible | Reviewer: Anonymous | 3/17/11

this song I just listened to now but my ex quoted this on a picture of me he liked me a whole lot more than I liked him and it wasn't meant to be but this made me cry it just reminds me of him (he wrote love poems to me and quoted songs like this)

This song is full of emotion. It shows love on many levels, shows love through many peoples eyes.
My friend showed me this song.
'Besides, maybe this time it's different, I mean I really think you like me'
I really think he likes me. I doubt it though.
This song is just amazing, 'life-like'.
I thank my friend, 'h', for showing me this song.

perfect | Reviewer: kerry | 7/13/10

this song is beautiful <3 my ex boyfriend/first love, put this on a cd along with many other songs that he loved and that reminded him of me. he gave that cd for our first christmas being together. it was so sweet and we were so innocent, perfect relationship. but after awhile it obviously didn't work out. such a shame. but i still love this song!!! :D

happy | Reviewer: Anonymous | 1/3/10

if there is honesty in this song, it only makes me that much more happy, listening to what hes gone through and past songs about empty relationships. if that last line means anything at all to conor, than i am all the more happy for him, and hope that it lasted... and this song is amazing.

I love this song. Its just fantastic. And completley real. Its just real. I cant help but relate to this..

My friend/Ex boyfriend ment everything to me. I never told him that either. Well, we were so cool last year then he changed. He started doing all these different kinda drugs. He became all the things i hate. And he wasnt the same person i knew. Then he dropped out of school. And i cried every single night after he did that. He started selling drugs out on the street. I miss him. I couldnt stand it. I knew that the one person i believed in more than anything, was gone. I was the one person who actually gave a fuck about him. I cared more than i cared about anything else. Everyone at school and in his life, litterally hated him. He was a jackass. He talked too much shit, and he even said a few things about me aswell. I dont know what to do. I MISS HIM. I just wanna save him.... Kinda like he saved me once...

Here is a beautiful song, but it can turn into the most morbid peice of music you can listen to when your fiancee leaves you for another man. What a fucking evil woman.

How can someone do that to a human being. How can someone who knew me so well just, destroy me.

I could go anywhere with you &I'd probably be happy. | Reviewer: Anonymous | 7/23/09

I hadn't properly listened to this 'til a few days ago. I was having a really shit time trying to find my runaway friend- it was about midnight, &I knew that if he didn't turn up the shit would hit the fan for various reasons. On the drive home after having no luck, I got a call from my boyfriend. He said "don't talk, just listen" and played the song down the phone to me. Sounds a bit cheesy, but I could NOT stop smiling.

The song's just fantastic.

<3 | Reviewer: alisha | 6/26/09

I first heard this song when I was with my ex boyfriend. he was wearing a bright eyes shirt. so I asked him about it and he told me to listen to this song.. and now I can't stop listening to it because it reminds me of all the amazing times we had together.. he sang it to me on guitar and sounds just like the band.. this song is amazing.. I love it.

Amazing | Reviewer: jake | 1/28/09

Out of 10 stars id give it a 10 cause when i first heard i saw the music video and to me when it showed the girl with the picture made me feel sad but it is such a amazing song. my favorite part is "I'd work for a paycheck then waiting in for the lottery. Besides maybe this time is different. I mean i think you really like me.

... | Reviewer: Anonymous | 1/16/09

First time i heard this song is when my boyfriend played and sang in a bar the last night i left the states.. He sang it several times when he visited me in Thailand.

"I'd rather be working for a paycheck, than waiting to win the lottery"

That what we're trying to do to get back together.

besides | Reviewer: alice | 12/10/08

Besides maybe this time it's different, I mean I really think you like me.

My favourite lines of the song, it's wonderful. It portrays lust, or love, or infatuation or what ever everyone feels towards that somebody.. really, really well.

I think I was blind before I met you. | Reviewer: Ninykinin | 1/8/08

I first heard this song performed at the school's Parade by one of the students. I can really relate to it and had to hold back the tears, now days when I listen to it at home with my partner always close by I can't help but feel great full for what I have. It's so very beautiful and would have to be the best illustration of love I have ever come across.
