Martha – The Only Letter That You Kept Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Thinking back to ’59
He held your hand, his valentine
Seduced you with those old love songs
They weren’t his words but he could do no wrong
He said, oh, my love
Marry me, let’s not wait
Be mine, for a lifetime, come on, it’s fate

[Verse 2]
Memories threaded with little beads
On the chain you made for me
With the only letter that you kept
In a wooden box
By where you slept
It was the written proof, it wasn’t fate
He was a waste of time, now it’s too late

[Chorus]
Holding onto pain and apologies
The final words you said to me
“I’m sorry that I made it worse”
Tainted blessing, stubborn curse

[Verse 3]
Tear-stained cheeks
Cold extremities
The bitter sweetness of my shocked capillaries, you said
“Take my advice darling”, I can attest
Never following it myself, means I know best

[Outro]
Holding onto apologies
The final words you said to me
“I’m sorry that I made it worse”
Tainted blessing, stubborn curse
Holding onto apologies
The final words you said to me
“I’m sorry that I made it worse”
Tainted blessing, stubborn curse
Holding onto apologies
The final words you said to me
“I’m sorry that I made it worse”
Tainted blessing, stubborn curse
Holding onto apologies
The final words you said to me
“I’m sorry that I made it worse”
Tainted blessing, stubborn curse
Holding onto apologies
The final words you said to me
“I’m sorry that I made it worse”
Tainted blessing, stubborn curse
