​Lost in The Mail

This song is by The Balancing Act and appears on the album Curtains (1988).

Words and music by Jeff Davis.

I wrote you a valentine
I sent it to you in jail
One or two days late's no crime
But the valentine's lost in the mail
The valentine's lost in the mail

I wrote you a letter
To say that justice would prevail
I knew this would help you feel better
But the letter got lost in the mail
The letter got lost in the mail

And I dream of you
Until I am delirious
Civil disobedience
Is serious
You were a passion flower
Wilting on that prison bus
While the system
Is crumbling all around us

I wrote you a letter
To say I'd love you without fail
I knew this would help you feel better
But the letter got lost in the mail
The letter got lost in the mail

And I dream of you
Until I am delirious
My words are all dissected
By the curious
You're a passion flower
And that can be dangerous
When the system
Is crumbling all around us
The system
Is crumbling all around us

I wrote you a valentine
I sent it to you in jail
One or two days late's no crime
But the valentine's lost in the mail
The valentine's lost in the mail
