Lyrics
Sitting alone with this letter of Y
The writing is hard to decipher
The spelling's just wrong
I twist and I turn just to see it her way
But nothings OK when she tries to explain
Why she's gone

Tell me something
I don't know
Just for show
The same old story
We all hear
It's your fear
I'll move on
When you're gone

I'm so tired of lies and another love dies
As I read between lines that hardly defines
What went wrong
You scream and you shout
just to get it all out
The words don't make sense so I won't take offence
Are you done

This letter of why leaves me hanging to dry
I drown in your mess but you'll never confess
what you've done
I don't easily crack but it's all coming back
I'd get up and run but you've already won
Since you're gone
