lyrics

When I get home
The first thing I'll do
Stick my paws in the mailbox
Looking for a letter from you

I've been trying
Not to count on it
But you told me that you'd write me
I can't help myself
Baby I want it

'Cause one day in the summer you were holding me close
I never thought I'd wait hopelessly on the post
Looking for a clue that I'm still on your mind
Feeling like a lost love left behind

You don't got
Any nostalgia
For putting pen to paper
The old-fashioned things always failed ya

Meanwhile I'm
So sentimental
Got me going through the notes you wrote me
Wondering if your heart was a rental

'Cause I
Hope
You're
Not
Lis-
ten-
ing

One day in the summer you were holding me close
I never thought I'd wait hopelessly on the post
Looking for a clue that I'm still on your mind
Feeling like a lost love left behind

This ain't the modern day
I'm feeling like it's 1968

When you get home
The first thing you'll do
What the hell, I don't know
I don't even have a clue

All I know
Is it's been years now
But yesterday I dreamt that you still wanted me
I woke up in tears now

'Cause I
Hope
You're
Not
Lis-
ten-
ing

When I say that you
Have
Got
Me
Hang-
ing on
A string

'Cause one day in the summer you were holding me close
I never thought I'd wait hopelessly on the post
Looking for a clue that I'm still on your mind
Feeling like a lost love left behind

One day in the summer you were holding me close
I never thought I'd wait hopelessly on the post
Looking for a clue that I'm still on your mind
Feeling like a lost love left behind
