C             E               Am
This is the first day of my life
F             G                 C
Swear I was born right in the doorway
C                   E                         Am
I went out in the rain, suddenly everything changed
                D7              G
They're spreading blankets on the beach

C              E                 Am
Yours is the first face that I saw
F             G              C
Think I was blind before I met you
C                    E                         Am
Don't know where I am, don't know where I've been
         D7              G
But I know where I want to go

   C           G       Am
So I thought I'd let you know
         F              G
That these things take forever
 C      C/B   Am
I especially am slow
    Dminsus2                                                    C
But I realized how I need you and I wondered if I could come home 

G Am
Dminsus2 Fminsus2 Fminsus2?

C                E                  Am
I remember the time you drove all night 
F         G              C
Just to meet me in the morning 
C                  E                            Am
I thought it was strange, you said everything changed 
          D7                 G
You felt as if you'd just woke up 

           C             E               Am
And you said, "This is the first day of my life.
F                   G            C
I'm glad I didn't die before I met you.
C             E                   Am
Now I don't care, I could go anywhere with you,
      D7            G
And I'd probably be happy."

        C       G       Am
So if you want to be with me 
         F                 G
With these things there's no telling 
         C       C/B      Am
We'll just have to wait and see
                Dminsus2                                               C
But I'd rather be working for a paycheck than waiting to win the lottery 

E Am

          Dminsus2                                                      C
Besides, maybe this time its different, I mean I really think you like me

3.2. Lua

Intro: G|G|C|C

Verse 1:
G                                                 C
I know that it is freezing but I think we have to walk
      G                                                   C
Keep waving at the taxis, they keep turning their lights off
     Am                                            D
But Julie knows a party at some actor's west-side loft
Am            C               Am              D      
            G
Supplies are endless in the evening, by the morning, they'll be gone.

     G                                          C
When everthing is lonely, I can be my own best friend
         G                                        C
I get a coffee and the paper, have my own conversations
         Am                                             D
With the sidewalk and the pidgeons and my window reflection
Am         C              Am              D          
      G
The mask I polish in the evening, by the morning looks like shit.


Chorus 1:
       C                                 G
And I know you have a heavy heart, I can feel it when we kiss.
   C                                           G                     A7
So many men stronger than me have thrown their backs out, trying to lift it.
    C             Em              Am       G     C
But me, I'm not a gamble, you can count on me to split,
     Am    C               Am              D         
     G
The love I sell you in the evening, by the morning, won't exist.


Verse 2:
               G                                              C
You're looking skinny like a model with your eyes all painted black,
          G                                                C
Just keep going to the bathroom always say you'll be right back.
         Am                                              D
Well it takes one to know one kid, I think you've got it bad.
     Am       C           Am              D          
      G
But what's so easy in the evening, by the morning's such a drag.

            G                                              C
I've got a flask inside my pocket, we can share it on the train.
            G                                                C
And if you promise to stay conscious, I will try and do the same.
               Am                                             D
Yeah we might die from medication but we sure killed all the pain,
Am        C             Am              D            
 G
What was normal in the evening, by the morning, seems insane.


Chorus 2:
         C                                    G
And I'm not sure what the trouble was, that started all of this.
      C                                  G      A7
The reasons all have run away, but the feeling never did.
     C                      Em              Am     G 
     C
It's not something I would recommend but it is one way to live,
        Am      C             Am               D     
         G
'Cause what is simple in the moonlight, by the morning, never is.


              Am           C                  Am     
   Em
Yeah it was simple in the moonlight, now it's so complicated.
           Am            C             Am            
           Am
It was so simple in the moonlight, so simple in the moonlight, so simple in
    C          ...G
the moonlight.....
