you sent me a letter

from by Kim June Johnson

lyrics

Walking West along Bernard,
thinking about you and how you are.
Walking up the path to the bridge,
thinking about you out where you live.

You sent me a letter that said you’d love the fall this year.
You sent me a letter that said the sun’s been shining here.

Doesn’t it seem like a lifetime ago
when I crashed your car after that show?
I still feel that city beneath my feet,
the winter’s hard cold and the damp summer heat.

You sent me a letter that said you’d love the fall this year.
You sent me a letter that said the sun’s been shining here.

But I’ve spent way too many years
looking back to see if the coast was clear.
