Lyrics
VERSE
It's not workin' gettin' over you, so I'm writin' down this letter
Hopin' somehow it will help 'cause nothin' else has made this better
The letter says: "I'm sorry for all the hell I've put you through
But no matter how much I care, I can't say yes to you."

VERSE
"If you're havin' as much trouble as I am just gettin' by
Livin' life in a bubble, wantin' night and day to cry
Would you let me come to see you if you knew I could not stay?
Girl, you know I love you; I just can't take another day."

CHORUS
This letter, this letter
Is one I know I'll never send
This letter, this letter
Lord, please help me mend
This letter, this letter
Will this heartache ever end?
If I could only be there where you lay
I'd love all the pain away

RIDE

VERSE
"I mean you nothing but the best, but my best I just can't share
You know I'd love to just say yes; I'd call, but I don't dare
Neither of us meant for this to be the bed that we would lay in
You in yours, me in mine, aching for what might have been."

Repeat CHORUS

TAG
This letter, this letter
Will I put it in the mail?
