Letters That Cross in the Mail - Barbra Streisand

Last month
While thinking of love
I wrote him some words and mailed them away
But the next day
I found at my door a letter from Spain
He?d sent long before
And it?s not read
I haven?t heard from you in weeks
I must assume that you no longer care
Too bad that?s it, goodbye
It?s just amazing
How loving can fail
From letters that cross in the mail
A life, a love, a chance to win it all
Can pass you by, in the far gone seen
And you think you?ll find your fate tomorrow night
And he finds somebody else in-between
I sat with swords in my heart
And pen in a hand
I wrote I?m glad that we?re through
Full of hate I mailed it
But then in a week a letter arrived
With love did it speak
I loved the tender words you sent
It seems I wronged you please forgive me
I?ll return by ship real soon
But I know now that he?ll never sail
Our letters will cross in the mail
It?s just amazing
How time brings a loss
And loving can fail
Like letters that cross in the mail...
