I never thought you were the letter writing type
So now I see the words you chose the way you write
So I started to write back about the trees in the snow
And I saw a bird, couldn't see what it was but I thought you'd know
You always surprised me

And if I wrote you
If I wrote you
You would know me
No, no

And when the spring came and flooded all the streams
It's like how you got the night you told me all you dreams
And when the barn roof sagged after an icy bout
It's like how you got when you knew the truth was the only way out
But not the only way, oh no

And if I wrote you
If I wrote you
If you would know me
And you would not write me again
No, no

We drew our arms around the bastard sons
We never would drink to the chosen ones
Well, you know the way I left was not the way I planned
But I thought the world needed love and a steady hand
So I'm steady now, yeah

And now I'm so happy
I had to tell you
And I love you
And you will not write me again
You will not write me again, no, no
You will not write me again
