lyrics

fifty plain white envelopes
i’m sorry i never wrote
fifty plain white envelopes
i’m sorry i never wrote to you

we all think that our time
is the only time that matters

fifty plain white envelopes
i tried to write but always choked
never could put pen to paper
always thought it better left unsaid
we were driving in your car
you told me not to go so far away
you knew i wouldn’t listen
always knew that i could never stay

we all think that our lives
are the only lives that matter

fifty plain white envelopes
yesterday i threw them out
couldn’t bring myself to bear
the weight of their
condemning stares any longer

we all think that our lies
are the only lies that matter
