lyrics

I COULD WRITE YOU A LETTER

I could write you a letter
About my life
And you could write me a letter
Sayin', "It's alright,"
And we could cut out all
This pointless time
Of trying to get together

'Cause lately I've been thinkin'
You're not half bad
But you remind me
Of all that I can't have
So, let's cut out all
This pointless time
Of trying to get together

'Cause I keep trying
To keep waiting
But we are in different worlds
I keep trying
To keep waiting
But maybe you're not the right girl

'Cause the right girl wouldn't
Drag my heart around
On this dirty string
The right girl wouldn't
Make me mix tapes
And whisper sweet nothings

Then not deliver
You'll say, "It's not deliberate,"
But I know that it's true
If you're not gonna deliver,
Don't make me an idiot, too

I could write you a letter
About how I
Wish I could somehow make it feel alright
And we could cut out all
This pointless time
Of wishing we were together

'Cause lately I've been thinkin'
You're not half bad
But you remind me
Of all that I can't have
So, let's cut out all
This pointless time
Of wishing we were together

'Cause I keep trying
To keep waiting
But we are in different worlds
I keep trying
To keep waiting
But maybe you're not the right girl

'Cause the right girl wouldn't
Drag my heart around
On this dirty string
The right girl wouldn't
Make me mix tapes
And whisper sweet nothings

Then not deliver
You'll say, "It's not deliberate,"
But I know that it's true
If you're not gonna deliver,
Don't make me an idiot, too

I could write you a letter
About how I
Wish I'd said certain things that night
And we could cut out all
This pointless time
Of wishing I'd done it better

'Cause lately I've been thinkin'
You're not half bad
But you remind me
Of all that I can't have
So, let's cut out all
This pointless time
Of wishing I'd done it better

'Cause I keep trying
To keep waiting
But we are in different worlds
I keep trying
To keep waiting
But maybe you're not the right girl

'Cause the right girl wouldn't
Drag my heart around
On this dirty string
The right girl wouldn't
Make me mix tapes
And whisper sweet nothings

Then not deliver
You'll say, "It's not deliberate,"
But I know that it's true
If you're not gonna deliver,
Don't make me an idiot, too
