Gladys Knight & The Pips – Letter Full Of Tears lyrics

Mmm, here comes the mailman walking up the street
And it looks like he has a letter today for me
Wait a minute, let me look inside
No, it couldn't be from my guy

Because he, he brought me (Yes, he did)
I said, he, he brought me (Yes, he did)
A letter full of tears

I thought we had a love so strong (We had a love)
It would take a lifetime to break us apart
Oh yeah, but I found out today I was wrong
And my reward was a broken heart
(We got a love, come on, my baby and me)

Here comes the teardrops
Welcome, a welcome to my eyes
And I couldn't hold 'em back
No matter if I tried, whoa-ooh

You know it hurt me so inside
Won't you pardon me while I cry
Because he brought me (Yes, he did)
I said, he brought me (Yes, he did)
A letter full of tears

(Here comes the mailman) Those drip drop tears (He’s bringing me tears)
(Here comes the big tears) Can't you see them falling?
(Here comes the mailman, bringing these tears)
Whoa-ooh, whoa-ooh, whoa-oh, ooohh-ooohh
(Hey, yes, it is, hey, hey, yes it is, hey, hey, hey, ooo, yes, it is)

I thought we had a love so strong (hey, hey, hey whoa)
But it was so, so wrong
