The Heart Attacks – Tearstained Letters lyrics

(feat. Joan Jett)

Just like a typical modern chick,
You keep asking but you just don't stop
I'm a cheat and I lie, it's not true
But I do wonder why you pry
How can I be happy, you never trusted me
Make me do the things I do
So young everyday, there goes another piece
I'll soon dig my heart a grave

I got your letter and it all came back to me
Those tearstained letters are often so damn hard to read

So things are bad, you grab your pen and pad
As the tears roll off your cheek

[Joan Jett]
I can't go on leavin' my thoughts alone

I can't read it, don't give it to me

[Joan Jett]
I'm writing and you know every word is true
From your name at the top to the "I still love you"

One day I'm gonna rip and tear them all

[Joan Jett]
These letters weren't meant to drag

Down to the way things used to be
When you trusted me and life was so easy

[Joan Jett]
Stay home and I'll show you, I won't be ill

I'm sorry, but I don't know the way you feel

I got your letter and it all came back to me
Those tearstained letters are often so damn hard to read

One day I'll get the courage to break away
I keep saying things like this every day

I'm off and I'm losing you

[Joan Jett]
But baby, I call so often

I hear you calling, but I can't pick up

[Joan Jett]
I'm here and I'm oh so lonely

Yeah, sure

Yeah, I lie and I drink too much
And I'm real damn hard to reach

[Joan Jett]
You know that together we can work it out

Sometimes talking just drags me down
To the way things used to be
When you trusted me and life was so easy

[Joan Jett]
Stay home and I'll show you, I won't be ill

I'm sorry, but I don't know the way you feel

I got your letter and it all came back to me
Those tearstained letters are often so damn hard to read
