Artist: Billy Joel
Album/Category: The Nylon Curtain (1982)

Intro: Bb Ab Gb Eb

Laura calls me in the middle of the night[C7/G]
Passes on her painful information
Then these careless fingers, t[Bb/A]hey get caught in her vice[C7/G]
Til they're bleeding on my coffee table


Living alone isn't all that it's cracked up to be
Oh whoa whoa
I'm on her side, why does she push the poison on me?
F#7 B Bb
Oh whoa whoa whoa whoa

(First chorus only)

Laura has a very hard time[C7/G]
All her life has been one long disaster
Then she tells me she [Bb/A]suddenly believes she's seen a very good sign[C7/G]
She'll be taking some aggressive action

I fight her wars while she's slamming her doors in my face
Oh whoa whoa
Failure to break was the only mistake that she made
Oh whoa whoa


Here I am feeling like a fking fool
[Ebdim/A]Do I react the way exactly she intends me to?
Every time I think I'm off the ho[/F]ok she makes me lose my cool
I'm her machine an[Ebdim/A]d she can punch all the keys
And she can push any[Ebdim/A] button I was programmed through

Laura calls me when she needs a good fix[C7/G]
All her questions will get sympathetic
Answers I should [Bb/A]be so immunized to all of her tricks[C7/G]
She's surviving on her second chances

Sometimes I feel like this Godfather deal is all wrong
How can she hold an umbilical chord for so long?

Instrumental Break
I've done everything I can what else am I supposed to do
I'm her machine and [Ebdim/A]she can punch all the keys
And she can push any [Ebdim/A]button I was programmed through

Laura loves me even if I don't care[C7/G]
That's my problem that's her sacred absolution
Bb/A Gm C7/g
If she had to she would put herself in my chair
Even though I faced electrocution

She always says I'm the best friend that she's ever had
How do you hang up on someone who needs you that bad?

Outro: Bb Ab Gb Eb
