the letter lyrics – natalie merchant

if i ever write this letter
the pages i could write
but i don’t know where to send it
you have vanished
heaven knows where you live
heaven only knows

if i ever write this letter
bitter words it would contain
just an unrequited lover
wishing she had never
spoken your name
had never known your name

but if i write this letter
the truth it would reveal
knowing you brought me pleasure
how often i’ll treasure
moments that we knew
the precious and the few
