Last Love Letter
Craig Cardiff Lyrics


Let this be the last love letter
written but never sent,
instead made to wait
held for fear that it
was not the strongest key
to unlock your heart
too frail; broken; to even start.
the time that you called
broken open, saying please
you said ‘i'm open, ready'
the time that you wore
your heart on your sleeve
saying ‘is there any room for me?'
let this be the last
love letter never sent
let this be the last love letter
received but never read.
instead made to wait,
for fear that the heart was too small to hold
so instead it was folded into a book.
then book onto shelf, shelf into box
packed away with everything else
until the years piled and grew
heart held in sling
slow and steady
tired of remembering
the time that you wore
your heart on your sleeve
saying ‘is there any room for me?'
let this be the last
love letter never read
dear you,
this started as a letter
that i wrote in the hopes
soon things would get better
but they did not.
you said burn these tin foil wings
cardboard crowns
you said let them fall,
burn the whole thing down,
but leave me the soul
because the soul knows how to sing
the simplest songs
to explain everything

VERSE

Let this be the last
Love letter written but never sent, Instead made to wait
Held for fear it was not the key

To unlock your heart,
And open up the chest,
Too frail;
Broken;
And not the best

CHORUS

Just like
The time that you wore
Your heart on your sleeve
Saying ‘Hey, is there any room for me?'

Oh
And just like
The time that you called
Broken open,
'Please'
You said ‘I am open, I am ready’

Let this be the last love
Letter never sent

Never sent
Never sent
Never sent

VERSE

And let this be the last
Love letter received but never read.
Instead made to wait,
Oh for fear that the heart could not hold
Instead folded into a book.
Then book up to shelf,
Shelf to box
Packed with everything else

CHORUS

Until the years -
Years piled and grew
With a heart held in a sling
Slow and steady and remembering

Just like
The time that you wore
Your heart on your sleeve
Saying ‘Is there room? I am open, I am ready!’
Oh

And Let this be the last love
Letter never read

Never read
Never read
Never read

VERSE

Dear you,
Well this started as a letter that I wrote
In the hopes that
Soon things would get better
But they did not.

All the tin foil wings
And the tin foil crowns
'Burn them all' You said,
'Burn them all down.
But leave me the soul.'

The soul knows how to sing
The simple song
That explains everything.
The Heart knows it too

The heart knows how to sing, When the head only knows what it knows.
What it knows from remembering.

Let this be the last love
Letter never read.

One of the most beautiful songs I've ever heard. An undiscovered gem. That rare find of poetry and music blended perfectly...being distilled by time. Craig's performance - an evocative treasure hidden in plain sight...
