      Am
I was floating across the dance floor,
      C
I was trying to think of something to say,
      Fmaj9                                          C  Cmaj9
When i went up to your girlfriends and pulled you away.

You were so perfectly pretty,
C
I could love every mistake.
       Fmaj9                                C  Cmaj9   (Melody again)
At the end of the night, i asked you your name.

          F                   Am
You said "Laura" - i couldn't ignore it.
               G                      Dm
The name of my old love keeps fucking me up

       F    Am        G
But on paper, i could write it out for you.
   F    Am        G
On paper, i could draw you a picture.
   F    Am        G                     Dm             F
On paper, i could finish any story with any ending you please.

  Am
I saw you in a dream in the morning,
         C
It's the only time i can remember.
         Fmaj9                                        C  Cmaj9
You were sitting at my kitchen table with no makeup on.
   Am
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."
Dm
Shit you've probably got a boyfriend

       F    Am        G
But on paper, i could write it out for you.
   F    Am        G
On paper, i could draw you a picture.
   F    Am        G                     Dm             F
On paper, i could finish any story with any ending you please.
