"Love Letter" as written by and Lisa Mitchell....
I'd like a flat white, a day of pale skies
And a real kiss

Inside an old house, by the seaside
You can take off my blouse

But take it from me;
I'm disorderly and you'd be off better
writing someone else your love letter
'cause I'm always on the road

And of course I wanna know you better
But you know the way it goes

Well a telegram's no substitute
when it comes to living proof

Oh go on
and write somebody else,
Oh somebody else,
oh anybody...

Your love letter.

(shoosha shoosha shoosha)
(shoosha)

So I need a flight home
There's no day to argue
no I need my pillow

Well inside an old house, by the seaside
You can take off my blouse
But take it from me;

I'm disorderly and you'd be off better
Writing someone else your love letter
cause I'm always on the road

(shoosha shoosha shoosha)

And of course I wanna know you better
But you know the way it goes

(shoosha shoosha shoosha)

And a telegram's no substitute
When it comes to living proof

(shoosha shoosha shoosha)

Go on and write somebody else,
somebody else
somebody else a love letter

Oh, living in that chest is a big, big heart
one that I’ve known from the very start

Living in that chest is a big, big heart
one that I’ve known from the very start

Oh, living in that chest is a big, big heart
one that I’ve known from the very start

Oh, living in that chest is a big, big heart
one that I’ve known from the very start

Go on, write somebody else your love letter
‘Cause I’m always on the road

And of course, of course I wanna know you better
But you know the way it goes.

    Song MeaningI think the meaning of the song is pretty clear, but correct me if I'm wrong.

    The singer loves someone, but is always travelling and would rather that the lover choses someone else. She wants to know him better, but a long-distant relationship doesn't compare to being together. "One I've known from the very start" might refer to being childhood friends.

    Beautiful song.
