Meet me there at midnight
Same place we always go
You're absolutely sure he doesn't know
Those words jump off the letter
That I found behind our bed
Haunting me they echo in my head
In my head.

It's too late to try and work it out
There's no way to turn this thing around
It's all there in the letter that I've found
I've memorized it line for line
Too bad that letter isn't mine, no

When can I then see you
I've been counting the days
I promise you our secret will be safe
No I just can't continue
Reading thru my tears
The meaning of the letter is so clear
So clear

It's too late to try and work it out.
There's no way to turn this thing around
It's so hard, there in the letter that I've found
I've memorized it line by line
Too bad that letter isn't mine.

U wanted me to find it
Never tried to hide it
The writing never fades those words are here to stay
I hope u find this letter
Writing you today
These will be the last words that I say

It's too late to try and work it out
There's no way to turn this thing around
It's all here in this letter that you've found
It's too late to try and work it out
There's no way to turn this thing around
It's so hard, there in this letter that you've found.
So memorize it line for line
I wont be there to say goodbye.
