Old love letters hidden in the back of a dresser drawer.
An ordinary room that hides a sad secret.
Only she knows where she has to keep it.
Sitting against the wall of her spare room
In the third drawer holds yesterdays gloom

So long ago from her past are the letters
One would hope that time would make it better
Not so, for the drawer has been locked from the start
Holding the sadness that's still locked in her heart

Open the bedroom door, open the dresser drawer
Open the window and let the new light in
Fear no more tomorrow, fear no more for sorrow
Tear up the memories that tied you to him

Make new wishes, let light come through your door
Tie a bright ribbon round new loves that last forever more
Look in the mirror and see a new life like never before
Vanished are the secrets hidden in the back of your dresser drawer
