The Letter

VERSE 1

 

I’m a stupid girl

From a stupid world

Drops a love locked letter in a steel blue box

Like a wishing well

 

On this concrete corner

Of this parking lot

Flies a paper plane full of worn out thoughts

Seems that’s all I’ve got

 

Your eyes were darker than the stormy sky

You paid the price for love, well so did I

Last time I looked at you,

may as well have been miles away

You never saw my tears

scream sorrow across the air

 

CHORUS

 

Now I’m thinking of you, thinking of you

Thinking of me

Thinking of you, thinking of you

Thinking of me

 

Got a tin can on a string

But the telephone don’t ring

A wish upon a star

Doesn’t get you very far

 

VERSE 2

 

I’m a stupid girl

From a stupid land

How one day turned to harm’s way

I’ll never understand

 

Been a long sad year

In my dreams I’d hide

Time to lick the seal, all my words ‘been said

Time to save my pride

 

I know you’ve heard it, heard it all before

All that’s left to say

now strewn outside your door

I should have known it from the start

never to send my love postmarked

Leaves me hanging on

and hooked on hopes delay

 

CHORUS

 

Now I’m thinking of you, thinking of you

Thinking of me

Thinking of you, thinking of you

Thinking of me

 

Got a tin can on a string

But the telephone don’t ring

A wish upon a star

Doesn’t get you very far

 

Now I’m thinking of you, thinking of you

Thinking of me

Thinking of you, thinking of you

Thinking of me

 

BRIDGE

 

Do you wish me well?

I wish you well

Wish me well

I know you do…

 

Da da-da-da….da da-da
