about

Use in a dark comedy maybe?

lyrics

It’s all too quiet, in fact I can hear
The rustle of paper down the hall
In my dead-letter office where everything goes
My dead-letter papers on the wall

It’s not like you to pretend that you never cared
Why don’t you answer all my calls
It’s not easy when I know I’d be your only friend
It’s so hard to take it all

My pen is my weapon, my paper my friend
I’m making a list, cross you off it again
Why don’t you see me for what I can be
Why don’t you believe what I want you to see

It’s not like you to pretend that you never cared
Why don’t you answer all my calls
It’s not easy when I know I’d be your only friend
It’s so hard to take it all

I’ve got a stack of mail, no forwarding address
All day long your phone it rings, I can’t get my rest
I called your mother yesterday, and now I’m feeling stressed
She said some hurtful things, but I know she meant the best

All of those letters, you never respond
How long do you think I can carry this on
It’s not like I’m lonely, I’ve got my friends
It’s just that tonight they’re busy again

It’s not like you to pretend that you never cared
Why don’t you answer all my calls
It’s not easy when I know I’d be your only friend
It’s so hard to take it all
