I wrote a letter yesterday
Just trying to explain
Couldn't find the words to say
Cause you are so far away
So far away

I wrote a letter yesterday
It's so hard for me to face
That it had to end this way
But my love will never change
Will never change

When I search my soul to find the truth about the love we shared
I wonder why you're no longer here

CHORUS
You can just walk away
But I don't feel the same
My heart still beats for you, breaths for you, sings for you
And those feelings will never fade
I can hide my pain
But I can never hide the way I feel for you

I've been talking in my sleep
About the way it used to be
Girl I pray that you'll hear me
And then I'll see you in my dreams
Oh, in my dreams

But I can't forget, the words you said to move on with my life
And no matter what I'll carry you inside

CHORUS

Sooner or later you're going to realize
That this type of love happens once in your life
So open your eyes, girl, and see what we could be
Come back to me

CHORUS 2X

    General Commentanother sad 98 degrees song. it's a good song, though, i suppose. their songs aren't exactly hard to decipher - the girl broke up with him, told him to move on, but he wants her back because he's convinced that what they had was something incredibly special.

    General CommentI think it about a relationship that went wrong. She broke it off and the guy can't get over it. He thinks that there is still hope but she has moved on.
