A rollicking Maritime-style folk song where the lyricist describes trying to decipher the reasons for a breakup from a (maybe metaphorical) letter his lover left behind. Clever wordplay uses the letter "Y" to stand in for the word "why", as well as to symbolize the divergence of two people's paths.   Keywords: reason reasons explanation anti-folk 6/8 acoustic guitar bass drums shaker organ harmonium electric bright upbeat rolling 3/4 waltz jig dance ocean ships

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
