Song Description
A woman goes down to the beach with a bottle of red. She burns all of her love letters from the man who broke her heart.

Story Behind the Song
I was in love with a man ... I gave up so much for him. We lived together for three years. He charmed me, he said he'd never harm me ... He turned out to be everything he said he wasn't. It took me a long time to get over his abuse. Burning his letters was the best way for me to move on.

lyrics

I'm watching your letters burn, watching you words blow away.
I'm watching your letters burn, watching your words blow away.

I see the flames burning. They're dancing before my eyes.
I can feel 'em burning. Yah, they're burning on the inside.
I'll never forget what you said, you're always on my mind ...
but I, think I'm through this time. Right now, I feel fine.

Watching your letters burn, watching your words blow away.
No, I can't take it no more living this way.
I'm watching your letters burn, watching your words blow away.
No, I can't take it no more living this way.

I can see clearly now, the smokes starting to rise.
I can't beleive it takes so long ... to see the light ... to realize ... that, I am what I am, I could'nt see 'cause you made me blind ...
I, think I'm through this time. Right now, I feel fine.

Watching your letters burn, watching you words blow away.
No, I can't take it no more living this way.
I'm watching your letters burn, watching you words blow away.
No, I can't it no more living this way.

Ashes ashes falling down. Your fire's burning out.
Oh- I can't cry no more. No, I never could quite figure you out.
But I'll never ever forget your face, or when you use to be mine.
I think I'm through ... this time ...
I think I'm through ... this time ...
I think I'm through ... this time ...
Right now ... I feel fine!

I'm watching your letters burn, watching your words blow away.
No, I can't take it no more living this way.
I'm watching your letters burn, watching your words blow away.
No, I can't take it no more living this way.
