Letterbox

This song is by They Might Be Giants and appears on the album Flood (1990).

This song has been covered by OK Go under the title "Letterbox".
I'll never know what you'll find when you open up your letterbox tomorrow,
Cause a little bird never tells me anything I wanna know; she's my best friend, she's a sparrow.
And I'll never, never know what you never, never, never wanna know when you know what you are, oh.

If I had a pair of eyes in the back of my head for each time
You forgot to take out all the things you forgot to talk about when you took a bite out of my spine.
I would have a lot of eyes on the other side, wouldn't I? Wouldn't that just be fine?

Too late or soon to make noise about love and there's no time for sorrow,
Run around in the rain with a hole in the brain till tomorrow.

I'll never know what you'll find when you open up your letterbox tomorrow,
Cause a little bird never tells me anything I wanna know; she's my best friend, she's a sparrow.
And I'll never, never know what you never, never, never wanna know when you know what you are, oh.
