"Love Letter" as written by Brian J. Kidd, Chasity Nwagbara and Kevin Seward....
I hold this letter in my hand
A plea, a petition, a kind of prayer
I hope it does as I have planned
Losing her again is more than I can bear
I kiss the cold, white envelope
I press my lips against her name
Two hundred words. we live in hope
The sky hangs heavy with rain

Love letter love letter
Go get her go get her
Love letter love letter
Go tell her go tell her

A wicked wind whips up the hill
A handful of hopeful words
I love her and I always will
The sky is ready to burst
Said something I did not mean to say
Said something I did not mean to say
Said something I did not mean to say
It all came out the wrong way

Love letter love letter
Go get her go get her
Love letter love letter
Go tell her go tell her

Rain your kisses down upon me
Rain your kisses down in storms
And for all who'll come before me
In your slowly fading forms
I'm going out of my mind
Will leave me standing in
The rain with a letter and a prayer
Whispered on the wind

Come back to me
Come back to me
Oh baby please come back to me

    General CommentThis song is about an emotional, hot and cold relationship, that changes in moods and emotions as much as the weather/seasons (hence the multiple weather metaphors).
    The song has been written following an argument, the sender can't trust his emotions to get in the way of expressing his love without causing another fight.
    The first two verses are written from the writers' point of view. The letter is delivered during the second chorus and the third verse is written from the receivers' perspective, as she forgets about all her past lovers and remembers her love for him. The outro is sung by male and female voices to symbolise both wanting each other back.

    General Commentthe man said some things he didn't ean & now that she's gone, he realizes what he's done and decides to write a love letter

    Love Letter Love letter
    Go get her Go get her
    Love Letter Love letter
    Go tell her Go tell her

    . . . he is sending it and hopes it will do all the talking for him without talking, it will, he hopes . . .ultimately bring her back to him
    he loves her but said some things he shouldn't have said

    General CommentThis is a rare thing: a comprehensible Nick Cave song.

    General CommentWhen the part that goes "rain your kisses down upon me, rain your kisses down in storms" comes in, I am filled with euphoria every time. Such a beautiful song. Tied with "Into My Arms" for my favorite Nick Cave love song, I think.
