Barbra Streisand LETTERS THAT CROSS IN THE MAIL Lyrics

Last updated:

Last month
While thinking of love
I wrote him some words and mailed them away
But the next day
I found at my door a letter from Spain
He’d sent long before
And his note read
I haven’t heard from you in weeks
I must assume that you no longer care
Too bad that’s it, goodbye
It’s just amazing
How loving can fail
From letters that cross in the mail
A life, a love, a chance to win it all
Can pass you by, in the foreign scene
And you think you’ll find your fate tomorrow night
And he finds somebody else in-between
I sat with swords in my heart
And pen in a hand I wrote
I’m glad that we’re through
Full of hate I mailed it
But then in a week a letter arrived
With love did it speak
And his note read
I loved the tender words you sent
It seems I wronged you please forgive me
I’ll return, I should leave soon
But oh, I know now that he’ll never sail
Our letters will cross in the mail
It’s just amazing
How time brings a loss
And loving can fail
Like letters that cross in the mail...
