Love Letters -DeVotchKa

It’s not my place to speak of these things
I know it’s bad luck and curses it brings
But it’s impossible for me to avoid
The boy you once loved I think I have destroyed

And I really should just let it go
It’s clearly out of my control
I should be cold
I should be detached
Oh, but you would never fall for that

Are you still in love with the sound of your voice
That floats all around and above all the noise
And then it grows fingers and scratches my skin
And plucks at my heartstrings ‘til I let you in

I guess all is forgotten and nothing’s forgiven
I know what you’re holding and I know where it’s hidden
But somewhere back in your memory
There’s a younger, prettier version of me

That’s the message that I want to transmit
That’s the boy I want you to go home with

Oh we’ve come all this way to forget where we are
We stumbled around underneath all these stars
I’d write you love letters but the light is too dim
I walk you through places we’ve already been

Are you still in love
Are you still in love with me
Are you still in love
Are you still in love with me

I guess all is forgotten and nothing’s forgiven
I know what you’re holding and I know where it’s hidden
Somewhere back in your memory
There’s a younger, prettier version of me

Yes I’m still in love with the sound of your voice
That floats all around and above all this noise
And then it grows fingers and scratches my skin
And plucks at my heartstrings ‘til I let you in

Yes I’m still in love
Are you still in love with me
Yes I’m still in love
Are you still in love with me

I guess all is forgotten and nothing’s forgiven
I know what you’re holding and I know where it’s hidden
Somewhere back in your memory
There’s a younger, prettier version of me

That’s the message that I want to transmit
That’s the boy I want you to go home with
