I write an open letter to
My heart listing what’s wrong with you
And us and how we’ve grown apart
And how easy is now what I call hard

And it’s surely not my fault I think it’s a circumstantial thing
So I guess in my head I blame you, and I look at her and say

Darling if you can’t tell
I just need some time to be by myself
Please don’t go running away
‘Cos I’ll be back in your arms one of these days

Time ticks, and the days they become months
My tricks are old now and it’s because
I’ve made this same mistake before
Where I run without addressing what’s really the cause

And now I know my darling that it was never you at all
It was me and all around us though I blamed you for the fall
So I say

Darling I hope you’re well
I’ve been using this time to recharge myself
I’m realizing all my mistakes
Can I take you out this weekend and try to re-ignite the flame?

All seemed well that night
I looked into her eyes and said I’ve gotta make this right
And she said “I might have to stop you there” she said
“Please now wont you listen I’ve got something to share”

She said
“Darling I hope you’re well
But it’s just been so long and I’ve found someone else
It’s not like I didn’t love you before
I just got used to the idea of you not being round anymore”

I said
Darling I wish you well
I suppose a part of me’s happy you’ve found someone else
I hope he loves you like I should have done
Hope he holds on to you forever and you never have to run
and maybe one day in the future I’ll call you up just for fun and I’ll say

Darling I Hope You’re Well
