lyrics

Verse

So I woke up this morning with a picture in my head
Everything right behind me was like a dream instead
A hazy picture of a girl who felt just like you feel, although
She thought he knew me and this is what she said

Chorus

When I looked up and I saw you it just felt so right
And this is the first day of my life

Verse

You looked in my eyes and you held out your hand
Asleep in my dreams I had hoped and I had planned
You spoke in a language I couldn’t even hear although
One look from you and I would just understand. You said
You’re the first thing and the last thing that enters my mind
And this is just the first day of my life’

Bridge

This is a dream, inside of a dream... just like I hoped it would be
A dream of you, it enters my mind... more I thought I could find

Verse

A hazy puff of winter to just disappear
You were just a memory I’d rather have right here
And I got the shivers right up through my spine
That was just the first day of my life

So I woke up this morning with a picture in my head
Everything right behind me was like a dream instead
A hazy picture of a girl who felt just like you feel, although
She thought he knew me and this is what she said

Chorus

When I looked up and I saw you it just felt so right
And this is the first day of my life
You’re the first thing and last thing that enters my mind
And this is just the first day of my life
When I looked up and I saw you it just felt so right
And this is the first day of my life
Wishing my dreams would come to be alive
And this is the first day of my life
