I stumbled across your picture today, I could barely breathe.
The moment stopped me cold and grabbed me like a theif.
I dialed your number but you wouldn't be there.
I knew the whole time, but it's still not fair.
I just wanted to hear your voice, I just needed to hear your voice.

What do I do with all I need to say,
So much I wanna tell you everyday.
Oh, it breaks my heart,
I cry these tears in the dark.
I write these letters to you,
But they get lost in the blue.
Cause, there's no address in the stars.

Now I'm driving through the pitch black dark.
I'm screaming at the sky,
Oh, cuase it hurts so bad.
Everybody tells me that all I need is time.
Every morning rolls in, and it hurts me again,
And that ain't nothin but a lie.

What do I do with all I need to say,
Oh, it breaks my heart,
I cry these tears in the dark.
I write these letters to you,
But they get lost in the blue.
Cause, there's no address in the stars.

Without you here with me,
Don't know what to do
I'd give anything just to talk to you.

Oh, it breaks my heart.

Oh it breaks my heart.

All I can do is write these letters to you.
But there's no address in the stars.

    I think this song is based on how a girl feels
    after her boyfriend leaves her,
    and how much she wants him back,
    and how she tries to call him,
    but he's never there;
    She just wants to hear his voice.
    and so she rights him letters,
    to get her feelings out,
    even though he'll never read them,(:

    *sounds like someone I know...*

    well it's not about boyfriends and girl friends there really is no right or wrong answer but it's about losing someone you truly love and care about.

    The first time I heard this song it literally stopped me dead in my tracks. She was singing the story of my nights and my life. I lost my husband in 2001. I write to him most every nite.not as often as I use to for the first 3 years I wrote to him 'every night' and some times through out the day.I never missed one day.I just put them in his drawer,they are all still there. I have his voice on our answering machine where he called and left me a message.And I have also written a full book of poems,but she sang the exact words I say to him all the time, I have so much I wanna tell him,so I just write letters to him that I know he'll never touch with his hands but believing he knows whats in my heart is what I write to him, and thats what gets me through the days and the nights. Time really hasnt helped all that much.Theres a freight train that at times it comes outta no where that just runs over me.It hits me most every day,when I see a commercial or hear a song on the radio,or a movie that might come on TV,I scream his name in my pillow so one can hear,or while I'm in the shower. He was only 47, I was 41,he passed away just before our 3rd wedding anniversary,but we had been together since 1986, I was 27 when we met. He was my whole life,my world.We both had kids,just none together. I dont know what to do with all the love I hold inside for him,theres no place for it to go.Theres no release.
    so thats what this song means to me.
    He's gone and hes never coming back, its about exceptance and trying to move on.

    This song reminds me of a little 4 almost 5 year old girl who drowned. The first time i heard this song it was done with a u tube video of her. Someone used this in a tribute u tube video for her and every time i hear it, it reminds me of her and her family and the hell they go through without her every single day. How it never gets easier for them. It brings back different emotions for me, but the first thing that i think of is her when this song plays. It makes me cry sometimes.
