"We Could Send Letters" as written by and Roddy Frame....
You said you're free for me, that says it all
You're free to push me and I'm free to fall

So if we weaken, we can call it stress
You've got my trust, I've got your home address
And now the only chance that we could take
Is the chance that someone else won't make it all come true

We're making tracks, they show our touch and go
And now it's touch and come and you should know
But then four years won't mean that much to me
When I've been smothered in the sympathy you bleed

Just close your eyes again
Until these things get better
You're never far away
But we could send letters

While you were gone, I reached another town
They couldn't help me but they showed me 'round
And now I've seen what you can't understand
I'd try to lead you but I'd crush your hand

Because the people in the village know, it doesn't matter
Where you choose to go, the end's the same

I found some blood, I wasn't meant to find
I found some feelings that we'd left behind
But then some blood won't mean that much to me
When I've been smothered in the sympathy you bleed

Just close your eyes again
Until these things get better
You're never far away
But we could send letters

I found some blood, I wasn't meant to find
I found some feelings that we'd left behind
But then some blood won't mean that much to me
When I've been smothered in the sympathy you bleed

Just close your eyes again
Until these things get better
You're never far away
But we could send letters

    General CommentIt is a great song, and it seems like it has been around forever, however it was actually written in 1980, and not released until 1982 (1983 if you count it's official inclusion on an album). So whilst you may have 'felt 12 years old' you where more than likely 25.

    Great song nonetheless
