Lyrics

Dead letter, dead letter of immaculate attention
Written in blood that flows from the pen tip
Dead letter, dead letter it'll never deliver
A message of love I wanted to give her

Sent a dead letter to the book on the shelf
She revealed some secrets she didn't want to tell
She died on the day that her baby was born
And the dead letter rests and the healings were torn

Dead letter, dead letter addressed straight to hell
It's written to someone, it's written quite well
Dead letter, dead letter will never be read
I'll write you a letter as long its dead

There's no response, and they love playing the mobster, confronting and drinking your self
They found him alone, he just sat on the floor nearby dead letters he just couldn't finish

Dead letter, dead letter of immaculate attention
Written in blood that flows from the pen tip
Dead letter, dead letter it'll never deliver
A message of love I wanted to give her

Dead letter, dead letter addressed to you
It says that I'm sorry, explains the whole truth
I thought that I said it so long ago
I thought that you got it, I just didn't know
