dear...

I got your letter in the mail today
From some post box far away
Your voice spoke out from the page
A recording in words you had made 

You tell me of new friendships in the making
The beauty of the land in which youíre staying
You with the party girl mentality
Who found her home right there by the sea

 And here in the city the weeks fly by
I work in the day and at night I play
I watch the news and I read the papers
What people do to each other defies human nature
And sometimes I sit alone in the dark
Looking at the moon and stars
And I wonder when will it all end
This universe is a precious place my friend 

In youth you were a boy out to play
Now youíre a woman going her own way
Youíve thrown away the nine to five
For the chance to follow what you feel inside

 Now youíve got yourself buried in books
And youíre still waiting for your knight to show up
I donít have to read between the lines
We are children born under the same sign 

And here in the city the weeks fly by
I work in the day and at night I play
I watch the news and I read the papers
What people do to each other defies human nature
And sometimes I sit alone in the dark
Looking at the moon and stars
And I wonder when will it all end
This universe is a precious place my friend

And time is infinite
A circle without end
The future is only history
Our eyes can not see
And those of philosophy
Can travel the centuries
To a head filled with queries
Looking for sense in the mystery

So I have sealed myself up today
Posted myself off to you far away
And I know that I wonít have to pretend
We can tell each other anything my friend

 Chorus **
