Old Love Letters

print

Today I burned your old love letters
I burned ’em gently one by one
And as I’d light the flame I’d read it
For I could see what you had done

    The first you wrote me was the sweetest
    The last one broke my heart in two
    And as I’d light the flame I’d read it
    For I can say I still love you

And as I burned your old love letters
It brought back memories from the past
It told about you and your new love
A love I knew could never last
