Lyrics

Dear John

Dear John Dear John, thats how she started it
Dear John, thats how she wanted it
Two words she left alone to say goodbye
The sound of those words makes me hear
The message simple yet not clear
Two words that echo in my ears

Dear John, what were we that this hurts so bad
Dear John, what was it that we (never/almost) had
Not friends, not love, then what I really need to know, but Ill never find out now
Dear John

In the void no spoken rage
Nothing else was on the page
No script written, just an empty stage
Yet in the space I read her pain
Behind the words not there yet plain
Between the words that echo in my ears

The fragile thing we had is gone forever
The things we might have had that you severed, with....
Dear John
