Barbra Streisand Letters That Cross in the Mail Lyrics

sponsored links
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...
