rupert holmes – letters that cross in the mail lyrics


last month
while thinking of love
i wrote him some words and mailed them away
but the next day
i found at my door a letter from spain
he’d sent long before
and it’s not read
i haven’t heard from you in weeks
i must -ssume that you no longer care
too bad that’s it, goodbye
it’s just amazing
how loving can fail
from letters that cross in the mail
a life, a love, a chance to win it all
can p-ss you by, in the far gone seen
and you think you’ll find your fate tomorrow night
and he finds somebody else in-between
i sat with swords in my heart
and pen in a hand i wrote
i’m glad that we’re through
full of hate i mailed it
but then in a week a letter arrived
with love did it speak
i loved the tender words you sent
it seems i wronged you please forgive me
i’ll return by ship real soon
but i know now that he’ll never sail
our letters will cross in the mail
it’s just amazing
how time brings a loss
and loving can fail
like letters that cross in the mail…
