Story

Story : While learning how to play guitar back in 2000, I came across a funky open string guitar tuning that Joni Mitchell used on only a few songs, and I tried it. I kept my guitar in that tuning for almost a week because I had such difficulty tuning by ear. By the end of the week Waiting For A Letter was written. I confess I don't remember how to play this song anymore so I don't perform it live.  However, I do think it's one of my most romantic, poetic songs to date. I'm not very romantic by nature, to tell the truth, but I'm pleased with this song's sincere and vulnerable sentiment which so honestly reflects human nature when it comes to love, longing and hope.

Lyrics

Waiting For A Letter

(c) 2003, Serina Jung

 

Waiting for a letter

a promise of forever

in an envelope

waiting for a letter

each passing day reigns heavier

on my suspended world

but I'm a dauntless girl

 

I'll learn of my love's return

tender words will waltz off the page

a bouquet of light, in darkness, it will be

when my lover's letter comes

when my lover's letter comes

 

waiting for a letter

it's May, no it's November

even Cupid sighs

but when it arrives

 

I'll learn of my love's return

tender words will waltz off the page

a bouquet of light, in darkness, it will be

when my lover's letter comes

when my lover's letter comes

 

waiting for a letter

a promise of forever
