lyrics

I could talk for a year, still I’d say nothing right
I could see all the world, still I’d have no insight
I’d take thousands and thousands of pictures but that won’t do
There’s nothing worth seeing if I can’t be seeing you

I wish you’d written me letters
(Like the ones you sent yourself)
I wonder if I’d feel better
If I read them
(Or if I’d wish you were somebody else)

I told you I’d die for you but that’s killing me
‘Cause I know I’m pining for something that just can’t be
Maybe I’ve waited too long and that ship has sailed
Or maybe you’ve tried me before and I’ve already failed

I have to stop wearing you daily, it’s worn us out
‘Cause I wear my heart on my sleeve and you’re stuck with doubt
I can’t keep on waiting for something you just can’t do
I’m sick of still needing, I need to get sick of you

I wish you’d written me letters
(Like the ones you sent yourself)
I wonder if I’d feel better
If I read them
(Or if I’d wish you were somebody else)

I’ll treasure the hole in my heart that you’ll leave behind
And love every memory it ever will bring to mind
And a hole’s still a hole that I know I will have to fill
But I’m not that sure there is something that ever will

I wish you’d written me letters
(Like the ones you sent yourself)
I wonder if I’d feel better
If I read them
(Or if I’d wish you were somebody else)
