about

We nearly all spend far too much time on Social Media Websites, but has this really helped improve our quality of communication? I think not! Lets not forget the joy of receiving a hand written letter! Thoughts along these lines inspired the track "Write me a Letter".

lyrics

Write me a letter,
Take a pen and make a start.
Fill it with what you truly feel,
Warm the cockles of my heart.

Write me a letter,
Like we did in ’95,
When things were oh so much better yeah, Oh yeaaaaah!
Or is that a white lie?

No more messages on Wastebook, Oh-oh-oh-oh-oooh!
No more endless calls on Skype. Oh-oh-oh-oh-oooh!
I’m getting used to see everything on a computer screen,
When all I’m craving is real life.

Write me a letter,
You know the ones that start with “Dear”,
Tend to end so much better,
Love and kisses like you’re here.

Write me a letter,
Don’t stop now you’ll lose the flow,
Of the pen joining up each letter, Oh yeaaaaah!
Such a beauty to behold.

No more messages on Wastebook, Oh-oh-oh-oh-oooh!
No more endless calls on Skype. Oh-oh-oh-oh-oooh!
I’m getting used to see everythingon a computer screen,
When all I’m craving is real life.

Why do we do what we do?
Our little fly legs stuck in this web of glue.
I wanna feel the real you,
Stroking this mouse with no heartbeat just won’t do.
No heartbeat won’t do!

Write me a letter,
It feels so damn good to receive,
One single handwritten letter, Oh yeaaaaah!
With ZERO text speak.

Write me a letter,
Please,please, please, please, please do it now. PLEASE
Don’t put it off any longer,
‘cause we’ll forget, we’ll forget, we’ll forget…
HOW!

No more messages on Wastebook, Oh-oh-oh-oh-oooh!
No more endless calls on Skype (put it in your pipe and…huh!)
I’m getting used to see everything on a computer screen,
When all I’m craving is real life.
