The Letter Lyrics

Artist: Natalie Merchant
Album: Tigerlily

If I ever write this letter
the pages I could write
but I don't know where to send it
you have vanished
heaven knows where you live
heaven only knows

if I ever write this letter
bitter words it would contain
just and unrequited lover
wishing she had never
spoken your name
had never known your name

but if I ever write this letter
the truth it would reveal
knowing you brought me pleasure
how I'll often treasure
moments that we knew
the precious, the few

Awesome lyrics. And all performed in about two minutes. 10 seconds. Now that's what I call true poetry!

Marla, you're an idiot. it's got nothing to do with spelling, it's 2 different words. moron.

shaun, you don't have to be so hard on Marla. That makes you look twice an idiot.
