                             Alexic - The Letter
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

This is the acoustic version of The Letter.  This is just about 100% correct with the 
of the beginning.  Play around with the picking of the chords as you listen to it.
Enjoy.

That's it. Listen to the song for correct strumming and picking.
Here are the lyrics:


Take back the roses, take back the letters, im sleeping alone and it holds me much better.
Turn back the pages, the poems to the dead, im dreaming too high up and falling instead.
Almost on top of the world and we'd fallen, we could have been saved with the effort you 
followed you words from the letters you'd send, the last on my nightstand im leaving unread.

as it fades i can hear as the window breaks, these consequences never seemed so grave, 
it comes im the one with the broken heart, my inspiration never seemed so alive.

Why walk away when you always turn back
, she's hurt me before but im smarter than that,
(i've hurt your before but your smarter than that)
i've lost the key to that glow in your eyes,
(you've lost the key to that glow in my eyes)
im all by myself and that's fine.
(your all by yourself and that's fine)

It's a call to the keepers of the light, the weak need not apply, glory fades when 
dies, here it comes im the one with the loaded gun, im not afraid to make this fun, shoulda 
it when you saw it in my eyes.

Now in the darkness, the candle we lit, Barely still burning and begging for wind, i'll 
that im stronger, now after i've died, and i'll put out the candle and force it aside.

*Special thanks to Kitty for finding these lyrics, I couldn't find them anywhere*
