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
