a letter to lyrics – shakin’ stevens

i tore my letter up
i couldn’t even start
to tell you what’s really in my heart.
there’s only so much that words can say
so i sent you a piece of this beautiful day.
oh
i want you to know that i took a rainbow
and sent it off in a letter to you.
took some flowers in the spring
made a sweet clover ring
and sent it off in a letter to you.
took a song from the lark – the moon from the dark

a spark with the sparkling dew.
vvith a kiss and a hug and a whole lot of love
i sent ’em off in a letter to you.
i took the mornin’ sun peekin’ through the trees
and the dandelion silk tangled in the breeze
i folded ’em up – sealed ’em with a kiss

it’s the kind of letter that you can’t resist.
oh
i want you to know that i took a rainbow…

in a day or two – just you wait and see

you’re gonna get a special delivery.
you’ll know the way i feel –
there can’t be any doubt
when you open it up
and let the love spill out.

oh
i want you to know
that i took a rainbow…
you know
i sent ’em off
in a letter to you.
you know
i sent ’em off
in a letter to you…
