about

A trunk full of undelivered letters from the 17th century was discovered by historians in the Netherlands. They unearthed some amazing stories, amongst them the pleading voice of a woman writing to the father of her unborn child.

lyrics

I have gone away, I knew you would not wish me stay
My fairweather friend
Though I would write you back again
You came with the sun, you left with the rain x2

Chorus
So I send what I can, that careful words may move a man
Though I send you my love, it lies there undelivered

I carry what little I can, the pen and paper in my hand
The plans that we had laid, the beginnings of the child we made
Though ink may stain, ink may fade,
Ink may bring you back again x2

Chorus

Your son is coming soon, he'll be delivered by the stars and moon
I will write you once again, tell you of his eyes, tell you his name
Though the letter will lie and not be claimed
For you came with the night, you left with the day x2

Chorus

There's a trunk somewhere in store, keeping our secrets by the score
Three hundred years or more, our letters' silent, ceaseless roar
From desperate hands, our secrets spilled
Our letters sit, unanswered still x2

Chorus

All the things this life sends, all the beginnings, all the ends
To be lost inbetween, an uncollected, long lost dream
A lonely voice amongst the stream
Unanswered questions meet the air
And leave you neither here nor there
They leave you neither here nor there

Chorus
