[Intro]
 
Dm F
F C
 
[Verse]
 
Dm F                    F   C
      It's a calculation I made a mistake on
Dm  F                         F    C
     I never should have said it like I said
Dm F                              F   C
       It will come to me later like a space invader
Dm F                              F   C
    And I won't be able to get it out of my head
 
[Chorus]
 
Am                C                 F
    What if I'd never written the letter
                   G                          Am
I slipped into the sleeve of the record I gave you?
             C                       F
What if I stayed on the C train until Lafayette?
     G
What if we never met?
Dm                        Am
What if I'd only just done what you told me
 F                  G
And never looked back?
 Dm                      Am
What if I'd only ducked away down the hallway
F                G
And faded to black?
 
[Verse]
 
Dm F                    F        C
  It was too romantic, it was sad and frantic
Dm F                     F   C
       A paperback book in a storm drain
Dm F                         F    C
     It could go number one, if I copied a new one
Dm F                  F   C
     From a melody that I wish I had
 
[Chorus]
 
Am                C                 F
    What if I'd never written the letter
                   G                          Am
I slipped into the sleeve of the record I gave you?
             C                       F
What if I stayed on the C train until Lafayette?
     G
What if we never met?
Dm                        Am
What if I'd only just done what you told me
 F                  G
And never looked back?
 Dm                      Am
What if I'd only ducked away down the hallway
F                G
And faded to black?
 
Am                C                 F
    What if I'd never written the letter
                   G                          Am
I slipped into the sleeve of the record I gave you?
             C                       F
What if I stayed on the C train until Lafayette?
     G
What if we never met?
Dm                        Am
What if I'd only just done what you told me
 F                  G
And never looked back?
 Dm                      Am
What if I'd only ducked away down the hallway
F                G
And faded to black?
 
[Verse]
 
Dm F                F   C
 
It will come to me later, like a space invader
Dm  F                          F     C
    And I won't be able to get it out of my head
 
[Outro]

F   G   Am C

                  It's a calculation I made a mistake on
I never should have said it like I said
It will come to me later like a space invader
And I won't be able to get it out of my head

What if I'd never written the letter
I slipped into the sleeve of the record I gave you?
What if I stayed on the C train until Lafayette?
What if we never met?
What if I'd only just done what you told me
And never looked back?
What if I'd only ducked away down the hallway
And faded to black?

It was too romantic, it was sad and frantic
A paperback book in a storm drain
It could go number one, if I copied a new one
From a melody that I wish I had

What if I'd never written the letter
I slipped into the sleeve of the record I gave you?
What if I stayed on the C train until Lafayette?
What if we never met?
What if I'd only just done what you told me
And never looked back?
What if I'd only ducked away down the hallway
And faded to black?
What if I'd never written the letter
I slipped into the sleeve of the record I gave you?
What if I stayed on the C train until Lafayette?
What if we never met?
What if I'd only just done what you told me
And never looked back?
What if I'd only ducked away down the hallway
And faded to black?

It will come to me later, like a space invader
And I won't be able to get it out of my head
