Thursdays Tunes: Bright Eyes - First Day of my Life

I just love this song... for oh so many reasons... #1? Because its just plain adorable... you MUST watch the video... its just so sweet and expresses love in all its forms... #2: Because at the end of our wedding ceremony we walked back down the isle with this playing... we even tied it into the Pronouncement...
Cole:  Amber & ZaQ, This is the first day of your life. You stood before your friends and family here today and spoke your vows and sealed them with the exchanging of the rings. It is with great honor that I now pronounce you as Husband & Wife.

Zaq, you may kiss your bride.

It was pretty much perfection, and the perfect song to play as we started our new journey together...

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
