 [VERSE ONE]
  C                            Cmaj7
 Now and then she rereads the manuscript
         G               F 
 Of the entire torrid affair
  C 
 They compared their licenses
      Cmaj7
 He said, "I'm not a donor but
     G                          F 
 I'd give you my heart if you needed it"
       C 
 She rolled her eyes and said
             Cmaj7
 "You're a professional"
      G                     F 
 He said, "No, just a good samaritan"
      C                              Cmaj7
 He said that if the sex was half as good 
 
 As the conversation was
   G                          F 
 Soon they'd be pushin' strollers
    F          C     Gsus4 F
 But soon it was over

 [VERSE TWO]
         C                              Cmaj7
 In the age of him, she wished she was thirty
            G                         F 
 And made coffee every morning in a Frеnch press
   C                            Cmaj7
 Afterwards she only atе kids' cereal
                G                          F 
 And couldn't sleep unless it was in her mother's bed

 C                               Cmaj7
 Then she dated boys who were her own age
         G                               F 
 With dart boards on the backs of their doors
      C
 She thought about how he said 
            Cmaj7
 Since she was so wise beyond her years
     G                     F 
 Everything had been above board
  F          C Gsus4 F G 
 She wasn't sure

 [BRIDGE]
          G 
 And the years passed
        Am            F 
 Like scenes of a show
       G                Am               F 
 The professor said to write what you know
            G 
 Lookin' backwards
       C            G           F
 Might be the only way to move forward

           G 
 Then the actors
        Am           F 
 Were hitting their marks
          G
 And the slow dance
      Am                F 
 Was alight with the sparks
          G 
 And the tears fell
      C        G            F 
 In synchronicity with the score
         Gsus4
 And at last
            C        G            F 
 She knew what the agony had been for

 [VERSE THREE]
      C                               Cmaj7
 The only thing that's left is the manuscript
              G                       F 
 One last souvenir from my trip to your shores
    C                         Cmaj7
 Now and then I reread the manuscript
          G               F 
 But the story isn't mine anymore
