Bm7 Fdim(III) AM7 A6 Laura is the face in the misty light, Am7 Cdim GM7 G6 Footsteps that you hear down the hall, Gm7 Edim FM7 Dm6 The laugh that floats on a summer night Bm7-5 E7 AM7 A6 Edim That you can never quite recall. And you see Bm7 Fdim AM7 A6 Laura on the train that is passing through; Am7 Cdim GM7 G6 Those eyes . . . how familiar they seem. Gm7 Edim Bm7 D+5 She gave your very first kiss to you -- E7-9 Edim A7 D6/9 D alt That was Laura, but she's only a dream.
