Dear Matthew I like you a lot I realize you're in a relationship With someone right now and I respect That I would like you to know that if you're ever single In the future and you want to come visit me in California I would be open to spending time with you and finding Out how old you were when you wrote your first song
Dear Jonathan I liked you too much I used to be attracted to boys Who would lie to me and think solely about themselves and you Were plenty self-destructive for my taste at the time I used to say The more tragic the better the truth is whenever I think of the early 90's Your face comes up with a vengeance like it was yesterday
Dear Terrance I love you muchly you've been nothing But open hearted and emotionally available and supportive And nurturing and consummately there for me I kept drawing you in And pushing you away I remember how beautiful it was to fall asleep On your couch and cry in front of you for the first time you Were the best platform from which to jump beyond myself what Was wrong with me
Dear Marcus you rocked my world you had a charismatic way About you with the women and you got me Seriously thinking about spirituality and you wouldn't let me get away With kicking my own ass but I could never really feel relaxed and looked out For around you though and that stopped us from going any further Than we did and it's kinda too bad because we could've had much more fun
Dear Lou we learned so much I realize we won't be able to talk for some time And I understand that as I do you The long distance thing was the hardest and we did as well as we could We were together during a very tumultuous time In our lives I will always have your back and be curious about you About your career about your whereabouts

Bill from Ohio, OhAlanis is referring to Dave Matthews as the first guy in the song. Hence the play on words “Dear Matthew” e.g. “Dave Matthews”. She worked on some tracks on Dave Matthew’s album “Before these Crowded Streets” and developed a platonic relationship with him and an admiration for his songwriting ability. Dave was faithfully married. Thus, the following lines “If you’re ever single in the future… come visit me in California…How old you were when you wrote your first song…?” She recorded “Unsent” soon after working with Dave in the studio sessions.
Mel from Boyds, MdThe first guy- Matthew was Matthew Sweet. He is a singer songwriter
The Eurythmics' "Sweet Dreams (Are Made Of This)" came top of a 2013 Spotify poll to find out which songs music fans most commonly hear people singing incorrectly. Many believe Annie Lennox is singing: "Sweet dreams are made of cheese, who am I to disagree?"
