G                   Am         D                      G       
Laura are you still livin' there on your estate of sorrows?
G                      Am        D                        G
You used to leave it occasionally but now you don't even bother
G              Am         D            G
to ride the commuter train west to Chicago
G                     Am    D                   G                     
to stroll through the greenery in the park past the statues

Bm                     Em        C               D
how her eyes seemed to follow you, like a hated addiction
Bm                         Em                               C             
their beauty carved out of absolutes you could never claim 
or even envision

G                 Am              D                  G
Laura you were the saddest song in the shape of a woman
G                      Am       D                      G
yeah I thought you were beautiful but I wept with your movements
G                      Am         D                        G
but I hope that you're laughing now from that place on the carpet
G                 Am          D                   G
where we shared a sleeping bag in your sister's apartment
G                 Am         D                       G
oh how she would worry so, you know I was just a stranger
      G             Am                    G       
but she asked me to care for you, yes she did 
and I went and betrayed her

Bm                     Em                   C                    D
But do you know we're in high demand, Laura, us, people who suffer?
Bm                        Em       C                    D
because we don't take to arguing and we're quick to surrender.

G                   Am        D                      G
Well I think I would call tonight if I still had your number
G                              Am            D                          G
your thoughts have always laid close to mine, and we're both skipping supper.
G                        Am             D                  G
But you should never be embarrassed by your trouble with living
G                             Am                                     
'Cause it's the ones with the sorest throats, Laura,
D                                     G
who have done the most singing
