Dear Sam,

I'm sorry I pushed you away from everything we had, even me
I couldn't ask you to wait forever
But that doesn't mean my feelings have changed
Every day your face is clearer
Regret is the burden, I'll carry from here to my grave
This distance is the knife in my heart
Let him know the treasure he has
Don't let him make my mistakes
Forever is never too long to wait for something perfect
I'll be here

Love always

    Great song, the lyrics don't totally do it justice.

    General CommentI really like the scream at the first "Dear Sam" - you just know that Sam must have been far away, literally.

    "Regret is the burden, I'll carry from here to my grave" - too true

    This reminds me of what my ex-boyfriend said to me when I dumped him.
    Ah, but it's still really awesome.
