"The Letter" as written by and Xavier Rudd....
I sit at my window
With everything I've done
Doors that I've opened
The webs that I've spun

And the candle beside me
It burns to the left
And the rain on the clay
Sends the lizard to it's nest

will there be a time
When I'll hold you again
With my arms spread out
My chest you'll rest

And I'll write you a letter
With everything I know
'bout the weight of the world
And the way things could go

So live up my friend
Step back again
For somethings will be given
For some you'll have to bend
You' ll have to bend my friend
To hold on to this
For somethings will come easy
And some will be a test
(You'll have to bend)

Now the ocean connects me
To everything I know
I'm mellowing my mind
So my heart, it can call

With these trees as my witness
I'll slice up some fruit
And each to their peacefull
Good intentions and truth

There will be a time
When I'll hold you again
With my arms spread out
I will dive right in

So now here is your letter
With everything I know
'Bout the weight of the world
And the way things could go

So live up my friend
Step back again
For somethings will be given
For some you'll have to bend
You'll have to bend my friend
To hold on to this
For somethings will come easy
And some will be a test
You'll have to bend

Now the ocean connects me
To everything I know
I'm mellowing my mind
So my heart, it can call

With these trees as my witness
I'll slice up some fruit
And each to their peacefull
Good intentions and truth

There will be a time
When I'll hold you again
With my arms spread out
I will dive right in

So now here is your letter
With everything I know
'bout the weight of the world
And the way things could go

    General CommentSuprised this doesn't have any comments, it's my favourite song by X.R.!

    I'm not 100% on what it means, I think it's about him contemplating how things change, and being unsure about him and his girl. Maybe he's trying to show her that you need to hold tight onto what you know.
    I dunno.

    General Commentmy favorite song by Xavier. With my favorite line. "Now the ocean connects me
    To everything I know
    By mellowing my mind
    So my heart, it can call"

    General CommentIts about the "weight of the world and the way things could go" and you have to bend your rules a little bit to hold on to this. When he is saying "this" he is referring to the love that he shares with someone.
