Artist: Barbra Streisand
Album: Lazy Afternoon

Last month
While thinking of love
I wrote him some words and mailed them away
But the next day
I found at my door a letter from Spain
He€™d sent long before
And his note read
I haven€™t heard from you in weeks
I must assume that you no longer care
Too bad that€™s it, goodbye
It€™s just amazing
How loving can fail
From letters that cross in the mail
A life, a love, a chance to win it all
Can pass you by, in the foreign scene
And you think you€™ll find your fate tomorrow night
And he finds somebody else in-between
I sat with swords in my heart
And pen in a hand I wrote
I€™m glad that we€™re through
Full of hate I mailed it
But then in a week a letter arrived
With love did it speak
And his note read
I loved the tender words you sent
It seems I wronged you please forgive me
I€™ll return, I should leave soon
But oh, I know now that he€™ll never sail
Our letters will cross in the mail
It€™s just amazing
How time brings a loss
And loving can fail
Like letters that cross in the mail...
