Letters that you write

I sit alone almost every night Reading the letters that you write Thinking about what went wrong While listening to our favourite song. Tell me what I have to do So that you will love me too. You tell me that it's over, With each letter that you write I will never understand what's happening, Our parting doesn't seem right. I thought we would be together For all the years left in our life, I wanted you to be mine forever I wanted you to be my wife. To love me like i love you To keep you safe from harm. But you tell me that it's over, With each letter that you write I will never understand what's happening, Our parting doesn't seem right. I listen for your footsteps When I'm sat here all alone, Praying you will come back to me That you will come back home. But all you do is write to me And break my heart in two. So don't tell me that it's over With the letters that you write, Tell me that your coming home And things will be alright.
