She told me to write a letter
When I didn't know what to say
So I did.
I wrote 27 letters
One for everybody
I ever cared for
And one for everybody
Else.
And I wrote one to my mother
It said
“I'm sorry.”
And I wrote one to myself
It said
“It wasn't you, it was them.”
And I sealed myself into the envelope
And waited to be sent
Far far away.
