Today, I burned your old love letters
I burned them slowly one by one
Before I light the flame I read it
To try and find the wrong I've done.

The first you wrote me was the sweetest
The last one told me we were through
Our love now lies among the embers
Of the ashes of your letters tied in blue.

--- Instrumental ---

And as I burned your old love letters
I watched my dreams go up in smoke
I thought again those precious mem'ries
I heard each tender word you spoke.

The first you wrote me was the sweetest
The last one broke my heart in two
And as I light the flames I read it
'Cause I can say I still love you.

--- Instrumental to fade ---
