those letters I wasted

I guess you can burn the letters I sent
I guess you can burn them
because I regret sending them
like I regret telling you
all my secrets I wasted on you
all those secrets I wasted on you
and my word I gave you
so you can burn those letters
I regret sending them
I regret you
I regret you
and that one safety letter
well keep that one unseen
but burn the rest burn the rest
and that one that one
where I told you, you were the best
you could sleep next to me forever
burn that one last
