so nice to hear from you
it's been a while it's true
still gluing up your stamps i see
i never even used the last ones you sent me
what do you do with your days
other than write to boys far away
you work two jobs your apartment sucks
your new boyfriend's a lousy fuck
thanks for the tape the photos are swell
i guess chicago's treating you well

you say you've got my picture on the wall
you sent your number for me to call
i guess i would if i could afford to
coz i know that you're bored too
i guess the only thing that's stopping me
is once that we got talking
i'm afraid of what we might start to say
& i don't want to start missing you again

    General Comment'i'm afraid of what we might start to say
    & i don't want to start missing you again'

    Reminds me of not wanting to 'feel' anything, after someones hurt you, or broken up etc. Everything hurts so much that 'nothing' often seems a better alternative.
