I heard she had a style

And listen for a while

With her song 

Dm          G 
I felt all flushed with fever

Embarrassed by the crowd 
Dm        G 
I felt she found my letters 
Am 
And read each one out loud

I prayed that she would finish

With her song 

Dm         G 
She sang as if she knew me 
C         F 
In all my dark despair 
Dm          G 
And then she looked right through me 
Am 
As if i wasn't there

But she was there with a stranger
