Poetry Friday: 20 Years by The Civil Wars

Current Mood: thirsty
Current Song: 20 Years by The Civil Wars

There's a note underneath your front door
That I wrote twenty years ago
Yellow paper and a faded picture
And a secret in an envelope

There's no reason, no excuses
There's no secondhand alibis
Just some black ink on some blue lines
And a shadow you won't recognize

In the meantime, I'll be waiting
For twenty years and twenty more
I'll be praying for redemption
And your note underneath my door

- lyrics to 20 Years by The Civil Wars

My friend's been telling me to listen to The Civil Wars. Must move that up on my To Do list!
