So I go into the city
To try and buy myself some time
All the girls they are so pretty
But not as beautiful as mine
All the buildings that surround me
For the first time I feel small
As I'm looking at these photos it reveals
That I don't like it here at all

So I write my love a letter
To try to make the time go fast
I hope that things will soon get better
Most recent memories aren't going to be the last

If I knew it'd be okay, for me to throw this all away
I'd have my bags all packed, my ticket booked and be ready to leave today
All the memories of which I'm fond sit on the wharf out on the pond
There's kids in the distance laughing on a street with no cars passing
Your hair is blowing in the breeze as the sun meets up with the trees

I step into the post office
Pick up an envelope I pick up a pen
Write the address and lay some change out for a stamp
Seems a little strange doing this again
Wet the stamp and stick it to the letter
I hope it makes it there to you, we're so many kilometres apart
I hope I'm right and you'll appreciate it
Not that it's coming in the mail, that it's coming from my heart
