The First Day of My Life Lyrics - Bright Eyes

Review The Song (46)

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 spreadin' blankets on the beach

Yours is the first face that I saw
I 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 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...

Our Wedding | Reviewer: MareesusMonkey | 2/4/11

My Fiance surprised me one night with his own recorded version of this song. We have decided to have this as our processional song when we walk back down the aisle. We are giving our guests a USB stick as a gift with all our songs and we are going to have our own little rendition of this song on it.

this song makes me speechless when i hear it, i get kinda choked up cause i can just relate to it so easily just like other bright eyes songs like the difference in the shades, i wonder how many times ive been just singing so loudly in my truck driving and tearing up, Conor you have made my life worth that much more im so grateful for your music and everything you've done in this world you have helped me through some rough times so thank you conor oberst.

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.

Beautiful | Reviewer: Leah | 6/7/10

I'm going through a tough/confusing time at the minute with my love life, but when I heard this song I felt like I had been woken up.
The words just hit me and I suddenly realised what I wanted/needed from my relationships. You don't get many songs that truly reach out to you like that, but when one does you realise just how truly special and potent that song must be. And the singer's voice is just incredible, it's full of emotion.
This song will always hold special meaning to me and, for that, I will always be grateful.

My fiance and I are using this song for our first dance. It's beautiful. It makes me tear up a little and laugh out loud at parts because of how very true they are, every time I hear it. Such a wonderful song.

This song is actually amazing. I first heard it on the radio in summer it was absoloutly beautiful, like many of his songs he expresses so much in his tone and in his lyrics a prime example is this and "A line shows progress, a circle does not"

2010 is all about change (: | Reviewer: Marilynn S | 1/1/10

I started my new year listening to this song, this song has me in a deep infatuation. I feel as if this song is going to resemble this up coming year for myself, this year I'm waking up from my dreaded life and finally realizing what's important to me and who I want to spend the rest of my life with.
Thank you Conor Oberst for making this song I'm truly inspired.

warmth to the heart x x | Reviewer: foza | 9/24/09

i heard this song in an advert and it warmed my heart and i thought i'd sent it to the gul that i was with and she didnt understand it like i did, but wat i know is that this song really takes your emotions to the next level and it makes you feel like the love that u give to ur loved one is not enough so i love this song for that and now i knw that the size if a heart is wat u make .
