The Letter
VERSE
He found it in a closet on a shelf
It said “Give this to him when he reaches twelve”
As he opened and began to read
The tracks of tears rolled down his cheek
Like Grandpa was standing there himself
Those words of wisdom hit him hard
Though a boy he understood it all
And his world would never be the same again
From the letter that he read

CHORUS
He said “Be the best man you can be
Take care of your family
And never ever forget what I’ve said
‘Cause life’ll come along one day
And take everything away
At the least expected moment that it can
Only love lasts forever
Through any kind of weather
So hold me in your heart” that’s what it said
In the letter that he read

VERSE
They tried everything that they could try
Neither of them understood why
Why it had to be this way
Why she had to go away
When they were just starting out their life
As he packed away her things
He found it lying with her rings
And his world would never be the same again
From the letter that he read

REPEAT CHORUS She said…“Be the best man you can be
Take care of our family………..
.
(SHORT INSTRUMENTAL)

REPEAT LAST HALF OF CHORUS
‘Cause life’ll come along one day
And take everything away
At the least expected moment that it can
Only love lasts forever
Through any kind of weather
So hold me in your heart” that’s what it said
In the letter that he read (2X)
