PAPER

verse: C F C (F Am) C F C (F F/E) Dm G Dm G
chorus: C Dm F G
bridge: E F C G

bet you thought that i forgot
but i'm not that kind of boy
i'm down the street & when we meet
you'll talk & i'll enjoy
everything you say, & hug you the next day
don't watch the clock, lift the lock
take your glasses off too late
hum your tune, show me the moon
but i will have to wait
to see it fill, i hear it's growing still

[chorus]
i hope that i remember to marry you when i get older

down to this, steal back the kiss
the one you stole in '98
i've got a crush & don't see you much
anticipation's the best state
i know what to do with my sunday afternoons

[ch]

[bridge]
keep me in the loop when the lasso comes down
rumours fly the truth is starting to sound
good to me who needs second chances?
now that's settled please, let's go dancing

[ch]
