Letters is about the cyclical nature of hope and disappointment, and the feeling that failure is inevitable; whether you're failing yourself, the people you care about, or the people who care about you.
I don’t think often now of anything, at all, but how I’ve suffered far too much
How we’ve all suffered far too much
And how your father must have hurt to see you standing there, as broken as him
And how your mother must have cried herself to sleep those nights when everyone was somewhere else, with someone else
Somebody else’s tears still linger on your lover’s cheek, and there’s a whisper in your ear that says “I’m sorry - I’m so sorry, I don’t know what I would do.”
I kept my word to every single thing I’ve ever loved but you.
I kept my word to everyone but you.
And I will let you down again.
In the absence of light, we praise halogen gods.
In the absence of love, we form porcelain bonds.
And all at once, I was swept out and way.
All our prayers have been unanswered, all our lives have been in vain.
Who I once was, and how it lingers on my skin.
And how I’ve failed you
And how I’ll fail you once again.
I will fail you once again.
I will fail you.
