Lyrics

The Letter

Written By: Bill Benoit

I barely got the keys in
When I heard something hit the floor
I picked it up and read it
Didn't think to close the door
It said that you were leaving
It said that we were through
I guess I can't go on believing
What I suspected what was untrue
I should have known better
And done what I had to do
Instead you wrote me the letter
that I should have written you

And then I heard the echo
That 2 feet make in an room
The floor seemed kind of naked
As I reached for the broom
These dusty silhouettes you left here
Will all too soon disappear
Not a lot left to tempt me
And my shelves are all empty
Oh, Except for an old sweater
The empty jewel case for Blue
The space that use to be between us
and this letter here from you

My oh my - hope springs eternally
Now I aint blind
I guess I just refused to see
That it's all about the winning
And being first to cross the line
I guess I am only now beginning
To realize that I
Gave one too many chances
To your heart, now it's a crime
The way this letter it just dances
and the empty space you left in mine
Ohhh say it'll get better
I am not so sure that it's true
Everytime I read the letter
That I should have written you
You wrote me the letter
That I should have written you
You wrote me the letter
That I should have written you
