20 years lyrics – the civil wars

“20 years”

there’s a note underneath your front door
that i wrote twenty years ago
yellow paper and a faded picture
and a secret in an envelope
there’s no reasons, no excuses
there’s no secondhand alibis
just some black ink on some blue lines
and a shadow you won’t recognize
in the meantime i’ll be waiting
for twenty years, twenty more
i’ll be praying for redemption
and your note underneath my door
