On Border Radio - The Last Letter lyrics

Oh, why do you treat me as if I were only a friend
What have I done that makes you so diff’rent and cold
Sometimes I wonder if you'll be contented again
Will you be happy when you are withered and old

I cannot offer you diamonds or mansions so fine
I cannot offer you clothes that your young body craves
But if you say that you long to forever be mine
Think of the heartaches, the tears and the sorrow you'll save

When you are weary and tired of another man’s gold
Always remember this letter, my own
Don’t try to answer though I suffered anguish untold
If you don’t love me, I wish you would leave me alone

While I am writing this letter, I think of the past
And of the promises you are breaking, you see
But to this cold world, I'll soon say my farewell at last
I will be gone when you get this last letter from me
