"100 Letters" as written by and Eric Frederic Ashley Frangipane....
How can Midas put his hands on me again?
He said "one day I'd realize why I don't have any friends"
I find myself alone at night
Unless I'm havin' sex
But he can make me golden if I just showed some respect

But I don't let him touch me anymore
I said "I'm not something to butter up
And taste when you get bored
'Cause I have spent too many nights on dirty bathroom floors
To find some peace and quiet right behind a wooden door"

He said "please don't go away"
He said "please don't go away"
I said "it's too late"
I said "it's too late"
He said "please don't go away"
He said "please don't go away"
I said "it's too late"
I said "it's too late"

And now I can't stop thinking that I can't stop thinking
That I almost gave you everything
And now the whole thing's finished and I can't stop wishing
That I never gave you anything

You wrote 100 letters just for me
And I find them in my closet in the pockets of my jeans
Now I'm constantly reminded of the time I was 19
Every single one's forgotten in a laundromat machine

But I don't let him touch me anymore
I said "I'm not something to butter up
And taste when you get bored
'Cause I have spent too many nights on dirty bathroom floors
To find some peace and quiet right behind a wooden door"

He said "please don't go away"
He said "please don't go away"
I said "it's too late"
I said "it's too late"
He said "please don't go away"
He said "please don't go away"
I said "it's too late"
I said "it's too late"

And now I can't stop thinking that I can't stop thinking
That I almost gave you everything
And now the whole thing's finished and I can't stop wishing
That I never gave you anything
And then I can't stop thinking that I can't stop thinking
That I almost gave you everything (I said it's too late)
And now the whole thing's finished and I can't stop wishing
That I never gave you anything

He said "please don't go away"
He said "please don't go away"
I said "it's too late"
I said "it's too late"
He said "please don't go away"
He said "please don't go away"
I said "it's too late"
I said "it's too late"

    General CommentWhen at her show only a few days ago she explained the song to us and she said that she used to have a boyfriend that would leave messages in the pockets of all her pants, usually saying things along the lines of “You’re beautiful, I love you”. And the audience thought it was so beautiful until she said “but unfortunately he treated me like s***”. She said that he treated her like she was nothing (hence the line ‘he said “one day I would realise why i don’t have any friends), and that it wasn’t for a really long time that she found her worth and what she believes she is, which was a lot more than her ex put her down to be (hence the line, ‘I said I’m not something to butter up and taste when you get bored’). Anyway, she said that months after they broke up she would still find all those notes in her pants and so she got jack of it and took every single pair of pants she had and threw them in the wash, hoping to drown every single note left, thus the line: ‘You wrote 100 letters just for me. And I find them in my closet in the pockets of my jeans. Now I’m constantly reminded of the time I was 19, every single one’s forgotten in a laundromat machine’.
