The Letter

The Letter

Liner Notes: 

I will let this one speak for itself.


He wrote me a letter one day it said
Im sorry i have to go
I didn’t understand the significance
But i was only 6 you know

V He said son be a brave boy
Look after your mum for me
This sickness has a hold now
So what will be will be

Pc They buried my hope the next Tuesday
Along with his broken life
All thats left now is a boy in tears
And a broken hearted wife

C We said things slowly got better
Everything we had tried
But people that knew us best
Could see that we both lied

V We both missed those simple things
Sometimes just a wink and a smile
And now that I’m am older
It seems better for a while

V they say you don’t miss things
That you have never had
But i miss them because i had a glimpse
Of having a caring dad

Pc I’m not sure if I’ve got things right
But when i was young i vowed
That i would try all my life
To make sure he would have been proud

C things did get better
after everything we had tried
But even after all this time
we wish he was still by our side

Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

the guitar in the back adds a lot to the mood balancing the funereal organ with a touch of hope. a sad song, to be sure, but with a few rays of light coming through.

This speaks volumes - so powerful with emotion and so poignant with an honest heartfelt feel. Really moving. The gentle delivery tugs on my heart strings. A difficult story so well told.
