G C G D C G x2

        G      C     G
We were young, maybe twenty
           D     C        G
You wore a white dressing gown
         G        C       G
Drinking wine and dancing slowly
       D       C        G
On the night I laid you down

        Em                      G
And the moonlight revealed your body
       Em                                 D
As the radio played some old Phil Collins song

       G           C         G
And we believed in something holy
       D       C        G
On the night I laid you down

       G    C      G
We had love in our eyes
       D       C      G
We had passion in our souls
          G    C      G
There was fire in our kisses
           D          C       G
But it was not a Phil Collins song

   Em                                G
It might have been like Mike and the Mechanics (I don't know who that is)
         Em                          D
Yes, you do, it was the other guy in Genesis

           G         C           G
I'm pretty sure that it was Phil Collins (No, it wasn't)
       D       C        G
On the night I laid you down

   G                C       G
Anyway (Anyway), it doesn't matter (Doesn't matter)
        D                   C         G
We made love (We made love) until the dawn
           G                                C      G
Two hearts beating (Two hearts beating) was all we heard (Oh boy, here we go)
             D                            C       G
Besides that old (It was fucking no) Phil Collins song

         Em                                                G
Well, it might have been that song from the movie with the jam box (Say Anything) (That's the one)
        Em                                    D
Who the hell mixes up Peter Gabriel with Phil Collins?

                             G                         C            G
Well fuck you I guess I'm no expert (No you're not) on fucking 90's music (80's) (Whatever)
       D       C        G
On the night I laid you down
       D       C        G
On the night I laid you down

Accurate, though i think stephen adds a C chord at the end of each line of the verse. Great job.
