"Dear Darlin'" as written by Edward James Drewett, Jim Eliot and Oliver Stanley Murs....
Dear Darlin’, please excuse my writing.
I can’t stop my hands from shaking
'Cause I’m cold and alone tonight.
I miss you and nothing hurts like no you.
And no one understands what we went through.
It was short. It was sweet. We tried.

And if my words break through the wall
And meet you at your door,
All I could say is “Girl, I mean them all.”

Dear Darlin’, please excuse my writing.
I can’t stop my hands from shaking
'Cause I’m cold and alone tonight.
I miss you and nothing hurts like no you.
And no one understands what we went through.
It was short. It was sweet. We tried. We tried.
I understand where he's coming from.

Been thinking about the ball we dreamt.
Feeling like the sofa was sinking.
I was warm in the hope of your eyes.

So if my words break through the wall
To meet you at your door,
All I could say is “Girl, I mean them all.”

Dear Darlin’, please excuse my writing.
I can’t stop my hands from shaking
'Cause I’m cold and alone tonight.
I miss you and nothing hurts like no you.
And no one understands what we went through.
It was short. It was sweet. We tried.

Oh I concur. These arms are yours to hold.

And I miss you and nothing hurts like no you.
And no one understands what we went through.
It was short. It was sweet. We tried. We tried.

    General CommentI think this could be a subliminal message to his brother. Saying that he wants them to be brothers again!

    I think he is in an advanced state of hypothermia and has started seeing visions of a sofa, a wall, etc.

    General CommentMy ex husband asked me to listen to this song. He was trying to tell me how he felt about our life together. I was told it is about committing suicide. I think it depends on how you enterpret the words. I think it is a beautiful love song..
