Received another letter today,
Asking me to stay
A little feeling crept inside me and whispered softly
We could use you, oh, we surely could
And I said never mind this, I knew you would
But I can't say I didn't think twice about turning around
But I can't say we all haven't thought twice about turning around.
Breathe softly into my lungs
Received another letter today
I didn't bother to even read it.
When you know what they are telling you
And the ink is running in your veins
And you know every word by heart
My fingers bled from the cuts it left and the careless lead.
I'd surely die a thousand times or more
In your arms I find a peace
That leaves me feeling so secure in you
So secure in you.
Received my last letter today
And I surely burned it.
I sang along as flames grew angry
I sang along and fell asleep.
Serenade me oh sweet authors.
