​Letterhead

This song is by Slow Gherkin.

So much wisdom, you shouldn't bother
Don't need to know that I'm just like my father
Mother tells me I hold my liquor well
Tells me some things I would never tell
When I ask her how to say when I mean to say to you
She says, "What's the point? Keep it locked inside."

This is the letterhead I never sent
Its corners curled inside my head
Call me Letterhead

So much impact in a single word
Shortest breakup that I ever heard
Quick to receieve, endless to respond
Words did not count, not a single one
Now with shields of time and space,
I sit with a prisitne postcard
But my tongue lies still except to lick the stamp

This is the letterhead I never sent
I write a page each night in bed
Call me Letterhead

I'd tell it to your face: I'm bad, I know, but you are worse
I kid myself, I wouldn't dare disturb the universe
Instead I'll file it away, we all do what we know is wrong
Each sentence, each word, each letter is a letter bomb

I've made a home here no one knows about
This dead-letter office whose fire has flickered out

Now I remember how to say with I never said to you
And I cherish it, spared the embarrassment

This is the letterhead I never sent
Its corners curled inside my head
We are young and blind, so unrefined
Our vision fades the more we try
Just call me letterhead
