L hold d this letter in my hand
A plea of petition, a kind of prayer
I hope it does as I have planned
Losing her again is more than I can bear

I kiss the cold white envelope
Press my lips against her name
Two hundred words, we live in hope
The sky hangs heavy with rain

Love letter, love letter
Go get her, go get her
Love letter, love letter
Go tell her, go tell her

A wicked wind whips up the hill
Hand full of hopeful words
I love her and I always will
The sky is ready to burst

Said something I did not mean to say
Said something I did not mean to say
Said something I did not mean to say
It all came out the wrong way

Love letter, love letter
Go get her, go get her
Love letter, love letter
Go tell her, go tell her

Rain your kisses down upon me
Rain your kisses down in storms
For all will come before me
In your thin and fading forms

Out of my mind
Will leave me standing in the rain
With a letter and a prayer
Whispered on the wind

Come back to me
Come back to me
Oh, baby, please come back to me
