"Letters" as written by Jamie Alexander Hartman, Tina Harris and John Frederik Fortis....
You're leaving me here, dear
Alone with all your letters
You're letting it go, no
Like innocence and feathers
You're putting it down
Sounds slipping into songs
You're leaving me here, dear
Alone with all my wrongs
You're pulling away
Pray you're making the right choice
You're pulling away
Stay and listen to my voice
To my voice

Sooner or later you will long
When you wake you will see
Sooner or later all the songs
That make you shake will be by me
Sooner or later all the throngs of feelings
We used to appreciate will come rushing back

You're thinking about
How you thought you know me better
You're looking around town
And wondering how I met her
You're pulling away
Pray you're making the right choice
You're pulling away
Stay and listen to my voice
To my voice

Sooner or later all the throngs of feelings
We used to appreciate will come rushing back
When you wake you will see

Don't wake me as you leave
Don't make me believe I have a chance in hell
Don't tell me what I know too well
Don't wake me

As you're leaving me here dear
Alone with all your letters
Don't let go of your innocence and feathers
Now I find every second reminds me of our song
Since you left me here der
Alone with all my wrongs
With my wrongs

    General CommentOk I can see not many people like this song. But this is my absolute favorite Stroke 9 song. I think they are so underappreciated as a band. Does anyone know if and when they are coming out with another album? I met them at the Orlando Airport once and they were super nice so I think they deserve some credit for their talent

    General CommentI agree with you both, they rock out major league style. And this is my favorite song. A new album would also be sweet.

    General Commentperhaps its a song about how we revele in our innocence and romantasize the monents that are around us but when we finaly loss all the things that make us a child we only wont it back. The lostness of the woman in this case. He idealized her and in the end she didn't want him and the only thing he wanted was for her to come back

    General CommentI love this song, I think Stroke 9 is an awesome band, it bugs me though cuz there are a ton of songs on this page and I can't find half of them on KaZaA, I hope they come out with a new CD I own their first one and love it.

    General Commentthe guy and girl were going out and then the girl realized that she wasn't attracted to him the way she thought she was, but after they break up, the girl ends up missing the guy. the guy wants nothign to do with her, she hurt him, so he's over her.
