Verse:

Em(Am)  
I was floating across the dance floor 
G(C)
I was trying to think of something to say 
C(F/C)
When I went up to your girlfriends 
                 G(C)      G/F#(C/B)
And I pulled you away 

Em(Am)
You were so perfectly pretty 
G(C)
I could love every mistake 
C(F/C)
At the end of the night, yeah 
                 G(C)      G/F#(C/B)
I asked you your name 

              C(F/C)
And you said, Laura 
           D(G)
I couldn't ignore it 
             Em(Am)  
The name of my old love 
                Am(Dm)
It keeps fucking me up 


CHORUS:
       C(F/C)   Em(Am)  D(G)
But on paper, I could write it out for you 
   C(F/C)   Em(Am)  D(G)
On paper, I could draw you a picture 
   C(F/C)   Em(Am)  D(G)                     Am(Dm)      C(F/C)        
On paper, I could finish any story with any ending you please 


VERSE 2:

Em(Am)  
And I saw you in a dream in the morning 
G(C)
It's the only time I can remember 
C(F/C)                                          G(C)      G/F#(C/B)
You were sitting at my kitchen table with no makeup on 

Em(Am)
And a thought flew in through the front door 
G(C)
You were so happy to see it 
C(F/C)                                           G(C)      G/F#(C/B)
You were telling me about everything you saw on tour 

            C(F/C)
And I said, know this 
                 D(G)
I listen to your records 
                 Em(Am)
I keep you in my head, yeah 
                   Am(Dm)
you probably got a boyfriend 


PLAY CHORUS

BRIDGE:

C(F/C), Em(Am), D(G), Am(Dm)

C(F/C)
I can't keep up, always playing catch up 
Em(Am)
Talking to you right now would be too much 
D(G)
Ma told me I got a letter, 
Am(Dm)
Written from you, it's sitting on the dresser 
(X2) 

PLAY CHORUS (2X)
