  • I read your letter yesterday
    If fell between the covers and my bare skin
    It fell between my crying
    And my longing for you

    I loved this one too long
    This one much too much
    Sometimes I gave just enough of myself
    But most times nothing at all

    And you've been gone too long
    You know I love you the best
    You call me crazy, that's how you won my heart
    'Cause you were half crazy too

    I read your letter again today
    Out loud and to myself
    It gave me back my sanity
    I didn't feel so alone

    Won't be too soon
    Not like the night
    Not like the night on a summer's day
    Can't wait to see you step across the room, empty room

    Save you and me
    I feel your touches in your letters
    But it's not half as good as you touching me
    In real
