"Unopened" as written by and Satcher....
There's a key in a letter unopened
Buried back in an old dresser drawer
There's a name stained with tears on that letter
One that I'm sure I've never seen before

There's no date on that letter unopened
My guess is it's faded with years
And I can't sleep at night now for wonderin'
How long has that secret been hiding here

Did you love someone, lose someone
Leave someone waiting
Is there somebody's heart out there
You could have taken
The letter says it all
Though the words go unspoken
You loved me enough to leave it unopened

There's a love that is trust without reason
There's a faith that leaves questions unasked
And though my heart has searched for the answer
I love you too much for these lips to ask

Did you love someone, lose someone
Leave someone waiting
Is there somebody's heart out there
You could have taken
The letter says it all
Though the words go unspoken
You loved me enough to leave it unopened

Oh, the letter says it all
Though the words go unspoken
And, I love you enough to leave it unopened

    General CommentThis song means a lot to me because I've had to break up with at least 3 guys for cheating on me and that destroys a girl's trust. This song speaks to me about loyalty, and the true love that I someday hope to find.

    General Commentthis song is about a letter that her bf or husband has in his posestion, and has left unopened obvioulsy, and its killing her to know what it says and at the sametime she is glad because like the chorus says "Did you love someone, lose someone
    Leave someone waiting
    Is there somebody's heart out there
    You could have taken"
    she still has him, not the other person who wrote the letter...

    General CommentLove this song. It's about trusting someone, and having a litte bit of faith in them as a person to know that they chose you, and not someone else.
