I waited each day for your letter
Although I knew what it would cost
But dear when it came I knew that your game
Had been won and I knew that I had lost.

But I just couldn't open your letter
I know you're no longer my own
The moment it came I wrote beneath my name
These heart-breaking words address unknown.

--- Instrumental ---

I wanted to open your letter
To see if you missed me sometimes
But you have a way of making me pay
'Cause I know what you write between the lines.

You know I'd be so glad to see you
In spite of the hurt you have done
But deep down inside I can't lose my pride
And forgive you just because you are the one.

So I just couldn't open your letter
I know you're no longer my own
The moment it came I wrote beneath my name
These heart-breaking words address unknown...
