(Words and Music by Edward Davis)
Vocal Performance by Lacy Jo Davis

I recognized the return address
On a letter that came today
But I didn’t want to open it,
I even thought I might throw it away.

But my curiosity got the best of me
Why now after all these years?
And so I tore it open,
And then broke down in tears.

It was a clipping from “Obituaries”
And a note written by his wife.
“I thought you’d like to know,” she wrote,
“He thought about you ‘til the day he died.”

The flashing of the years
To memories time wouldn’t take apart
Back to the words I’d spoken,
“You can’t understand a woman’s heart.”

No you can’t understand
A woman’s heart
‘Cause you are just a man
No you can’t understand
A woman’s heart
‘Cause a man is a man
And a man just never can

“If you’ve fallen in love,” he’d said,
“Then why can’t we be friends?”
“If a woman can’t own a man,
Is that where the friendship ends?”

Pain drenched his face and eyes
And I smothered in the hurt
To him it seemed a simple thing
He couldn’t see my thirst.


His heart and his soul and his loving touch
Might have cured my disease,
But he belonged to another,
And my pain would never leave.

And so I bid him fare-the-well
We both said some sad goodbyes.
He said he’d not forget about me
Nor the blueness in my eyes.


I left there lookin’ for my life
And sometimes I’d hear from him
The pain would tighten around my heart
When would this heartache dim?

When he’d leave a call, I’d not call back
He got the message and finally didn’t try
My heart was slowly mending
I thought he’d let our friendship die.

But today that letter
And a flood of memories from the past
I would have liked to talked to him
And say, “You see, our friendship did last.”

He couldn’t understand a woman’s heart
That day we’d sat and talked together,
But now it doesn’t matter at all
It’s just teardrops on one last letter.
