Letters From The Wasteland
The Wallflowers Lyrics


Now coming down out of this swan dive to your arms
I make no sounds when I move through your reservoirs.
But I wake up quick, and I wake up sick as you abandon me into these fields of rank and file.
Through this cloud I hear you breathing.
Through these bars I watch them bring more in.

Now I send back letters from the wasteland home.
I slow dance to this romance on my own.
It may be two to tango but, boy, it's one to let go.
It's just one to let go.

Now, boy, keep still don't spread yourself around.
Get back in line, eat your bread, and just work the plow.
'cause you're not through they're not done with with you.
Did you think you were the only one that's been let down?
So sleep tight, little boys of the new damned.
Another drop in the tidal wave of quicksand.

Now I send back letters from the wasteland home.
I slow dance to this romance on my own.
It may be two to tango but, boy, it's one to let go.
It's just one to let go.

Now another bad idea gets through
down the assembly line to you.
You're every bridge I should have burned,
every lesson I've unlearned,
in this smoke filled waiting room
with incarcerated lovesick fools
I wait for you to cut me loose.

But till then I send back letters from the wasteland home.
Last slow dance to this romance on my own.
It may take two to tango but, boy, it's one to let go.
From the wasteland home I slow dance to this romance on my own.

Now coming down out of this swan dive to your arms
I make no sounds when I move through your reservoirs
I wake up quick and I wake up sick
As you abandon me into these fields of rank and file

Through this cloud I hear you breathing
Through these bars I watch them bring more in

Now I send back letters from the wasteland home
Last slow dance to this romance on my own
May take two to tango but boy it's one to let go
Well it's just one to let go

Now boy keep still, no don't spread yourself around
Now get back in line, eat your bread and just work the ground
'Cause you're not through, they're not done with with you
Did you think you were the only one that's been let down

So sleep tight little boys of the new dam
Let the drop in the time with the quicksand

Now I send back letters from the wasteland home
Last slow dance to this romance on my own
May take two to tango but boy it's one to let go

Now another bad idea gets through, down they send me well unto you
Every bridge I should have burned, every lesson I've unlearned
When the smoke give way to ruins incarcerated lovesick fools
I wait for you to cut me loose but until then

I send back letters from the wasteland home
Last slow dance to this romance on my own
Now I send back letters from the wasteland home
From where I slow dance to this romance on my own

Now coming down out of this swan dive to your arms
I make no sounds when I move through your reservoirs.
But I wake up quick, and I wake up sick as you abandon me into these fields of rank and file.
Through this cloud I hear you breathing.
Through these bars I watch them bring more in.

Now I send back letters from the wasteland home.
I slow dance to this romance on my own.
It may be two to tango but, boy, it's one to let go.
It's just one to let go.

Now, boy, keep still don't spread yourself around.
Get back in line, eat your bread, and just work the plow.
'cause you're not through they're not done with with you.
Did you think you were the only one that's been let down?
So sleep tight, little boys of the new damned.
Another drop in the tidal wave of quicksand.

Now I send back letters from the wasteland home.
I slow dance to this romance on my own.
It may be two to tango but, boy, it's one to let go.
It's just one to let go.

Now another bad idea gets through
down the assembly line to you.
You're every bridge I should have burned,
every lesson I've unlearned,
in this smoke filled waiting room
with incarcerated lovesick fools
I wait for you to cut me loose.

But till then I send back letters from the wasteland home.
Last slow dance to this romance on my own.
It may take two to tango but, boy, it's one to let go.
From the wasteland home I slow dance to this romance on my own.

I remember when my dad bought bought this album for me. I was so excited. I lay in the living room for the entire night listening to this on my diskman. Had the entire album on repeat and fell asleep several hours later. I still have the album, and I finally get to see these guys in August. Thanks for the memories, from one wallflower to the others!

Dean Allen

One of the best albums of the 90's. I saw them in San Francisco when it was new. Fantastic show.

Uno más del Patriarcado

The most underrated band ever.

Vlad Krus

I think they're not. In late 90s they have successfully popular to the mainstream. The only issues i think of this bands failure is they are not solid band member. Jakob has the only one left in band. Since the last album 2012 glad all over. Drummer Mario and lead guitar vocals Micheal are replaced by some players.

Saw them perform this live. They were fantastic. Were better then counting crows who they were with but sadly the audience acted like it was a nobody band until they played one headlight

wherareI

Personally this and Beautiful Side of Somewhere are my favorite songs by them. Better than One Headlight (not that it's a bad song).

Boo Henry

Love the sound of the vocals. Fantastic band with a totally different sound all their own. Such interesting songs. Great to relax to and just soak up the goodness of this band.
