You were so perfectly pretty,
C
I could love every mistake.

You said "Laura" - i couldn't ignore it.

I saw you in a dream in the morning,
         C
It's the only time i can remember.

You were sitting at my kitchen table with no makeup on.

If i flew in through the front door,
C
You were so happy to see it,
             Fmaj9                                    C  Cmaj9
And you were telling me about everything you saw on tour.

            F                                Am
And i said "know this - i'll listen to your records,
                    G
i'll keep you in my head."
