I went digging through my closet for that book you gave to me
Came across a Valentine from 1983, you said you loved me then
And I loved you
You froze me right there in my tracks
You stuck me like some kind of crazy glue

So I sat down on the bedspread and I opened up the box
The one with all your letters from the moment that we met
They were unorthodox, like someone I knew
And every time I think that I am smooth and calm
A little piece of you comes poking through

Just why I read these letters after all this time has passed
Is something I don't understand
Just like the way they say that love will last
They say that love will last

And who am I to doubt it, I'm just trying to clear the air
Digging through my closet finding words and feelings
Stashed away and stuck in there
Stuck away in there
I heard somebody say
There's nothing wrong with looking at the past
As long as you don't stare

I went digging through my closet
For that book you gave to me
The one about the missing piece and holding on
And letting go and knowing why
And setting free
It works so well on paper but in real life
It's still a mystery to me

Just why I have these feelings
After all this time gone by
Is something I don't understand
I'd really like to know the reason why

So I go digging through my closet
Once in a while, from time to time
I come across a photograph, a souvenir
A memory, a Valentine, a Valentine

And some funny little part of me says
I would still be yours if you'd be mine

And another little part of me says
Give it up, you're wasting all your time

And still another part of me says
Let it go, you're gonna be just fine
