  • 'Neath a crown of mongrel trees
    I pulled that bothersome thread
    Got down on my knees
    Grabbed my pen and bowed my head
    Tried to summon all that my heart finds true
    And send it in my letter to you

    Things I found out through hard times and good
    I wrote 'em all out in ink and blood
    Dug deep in my soul and signed my name true
    And sent it in my letter to you

    In my letter to you
    I took all my fears and doubts
    In my letter to you
    All the hard things I found out
    In my letter to you
    All that I've found true
    And I sent it in my letter to you

    I took all the sunshine and rain
    All my happiness and all my pain
    The dark evening stars
    And the morning sky of blue
    And I sent it in my letter to you
    And I sent it in my letter to you

    In my letter to you
    I took all my fears and doubts
    In my letter to you
    All the hard things that I found out
    In my letter to you
    All that I found true
    And I sent it in my letter to you
    I sent it in my letter to you Writer/s: Bruce Springsteen
