I was floating across the dance floor,
I was trying to think of something to say,
When I went up to your girlfriends and pulled you away.
You were so perfectly pretty, I could love every mistake.
At the end of the night, I asked you your name.
You said "Laura" - I couldn't ignore it.
The name of my old love keeps fucking me up.
But on paper, I could write it out for you
On paper, I could draw you a picture
On paper, I could finish any story with any ending you please
I saw you in a dream in the morning, it's the only time I can remember.
You were sitting at my kitchen table with no make up on.
If I flew in through the front door, you were so happy to see it,
and you were telling me about everything you saw on tour
And I said "know this: i'll listen to your records, i'll keep you in my head"
shit you've probably got a boyfriend...
I can't keep up, always playing catch up
Talking to you right now would be too much.
May 14 I got a letter written from you, it's sitting on the dresser.
