Bm                   A
Laura you can’t write back now
     G                           D
And you can’t stop my time running out
Bm                         A
You can’t laugh and you can’t sing
     G                             D
And you can’t share the things I think


D
But the wall, the clouds the misty light
      A
The pylons reaching to the sky
      Bm
The bridge, the ramp the ferry road
 G
Everything I can’t let go
D
Your face your smile your words your breath
      A
The cheap mementos I’ve got left
     Bm
The look of fear ‘don’t leave me now’
G
Don’t leave me now

D                         G
I was lured by the pull of the words
D/F#                                 G
Abandoned then cut by the broken chords
D                       G
What we do, we do for love
D/F#                                     G
Memories are dust and that’s never enough
           D
Never enough

Laura give me one last night
Before you take that long, dark drive
One last time all on our own
Just us, a room and words alone.

And the world, the seas the beach the sound
The towns that nearly brought you down
The dread of night, the fear of dawn
The certainty this life’s gone wrong
The sleeps, the pills, the tears the rage
The years of hope, the missing days
Let them all just slip away
Slip away now

I was lured by the pull of the words
Abandoned then cut by the broken chords
What we do, we do for love
Memories are dust and that’s never enough
Never enough

     D           A            Bm          G
We wait, we hope, we pray
           D          A    Bm       G
For the night to slip away....

D      G      D/F#    G

I was lured by the pull of the words
Abandoned then cut by the broken chords
What we do, we do for love
Memories are dust and that’s never enough

D
Laura
From memory
