Mother Mother - Letter Lyrics



I wrote my lover, yeah, I wrote my lover today
The little letter gonna have to go a long, long way
I miss my lover, yeah, I write a letter everyday
The only thing is that my lover don't ever write me

Yeah...

I want a letter to read

All that I have
All that I ever loved is lost in the past
I want a letter, want a letter, want a letter to read all alone,
Me and your memory before I let go
I want a letter, want a letter, want a letter to read

I wait all day by the mailbox on the street
The postman don't stop, he just walk past me
Maybe it's the way that it's meant to be, yeah
Maybe it's the way I'm supposed to grieve

Yeah...

I want a letter to...

All that I have
All that I ever loved is lost in the past
I want a letter, want a letter, want a letter to read all alone,
Me and your memory before I let go
I want a letter, want a letter, want a letter to read

Love is just a syllable and day's the same
So is it just a little overkill writing the days away?

I wrote my lover, yeah, I wrote my lover today
The little letter gonna have to go a long, long way

I want a letter, want a letter, want a letter
I want a letter, want a letter, want a letter

All that I have, all that I have
All that I ever loved is lost in the past (lost in the past)
I want a letter, want a letter, want a letter to read all alone, all alone
I want a letter, want a letter, want a letter
Before I let go, I let go
I want a letter, want a letter, want a letter to read

  13. CryptidSky

    This song reminds me of my crush and how I had to say goodbye since it was time for summer vacation, it’s been 18 days since then. I really just want to hear his voice again and yeah.

  19. Alanis D.

    I don't write letters for anyone and in a few relationships I had before, the other person sometimes would write me a letter and that was beautiful and I was thankfull for that. But now it's different. My boyfriend writes me a letter for every month we're together, even he gets sure to not repeat the color of the paper, to bend it in a heart's shape and to add details only we can undertand. A few months ago I got the idea to write him back and do my best to give him the most beautiful letter, in a month we'll celebrate a year together. This song made me feel so lucky and blessed to be with someone who cares and loves me the same way I care and love him and now I really want to show it like that. ❤

  26. Jessy Coker

    To anyone not really digging this, try listening to the studio version ;)

  27. Chloe Weightman

    WHAT HAVE I BEEN MISSING OUT ON?!

  28. Cricket34

    H o l y s h i t. This is one of my favorite Mother Mother songs now lol. Once I hear one of their songs I fell obligated to listen to all of their other songs on this album

  29. Spicy Boy

    I know Ryan said its about a past version of yourself but my mind always goes straight to WWII

  30. Griffon Neumann

    I wrote my letter, yeah I wrote my letter today
    The little letter gonna have to go a long, long way
    I miss my lover, yeah I write a letter everyday
    The only thing is that my lover don't ever write me

    Yeah...

    I want a letter to read

    All that I had
    All that I ever loved is lost in the past
    I want a letter, want a letter, want a letter to
    Read all alone, me and your memory before I let go
    I want a letter, want a letter, want a letter to read

    I wait all day by the mailbox on the street
    The postman don't stop he just walk past me
    Maybe it's the way that is meant to be, yeah
    Maybe it's the way I'm supposed to grieve

    Yeah...

    I want a letter to

    All that I had
    All that I ever loved is lost in the past
    I want a letter, want a letter, want a letter to
    Read all alone, me and your memory before I let go
    I want a letter, want a letter, want a letter to read

    Love is just a syllable, and pain's the same
    So is it just a little overkill writing the days away?

    I wrote my lover, yeah I wrote my lover today

    I want a letter, want a letter, want a letter
    I want a letter, want a letter, want a letter

    All that I had (all that I hd)

    Read all alone (all alone)
    I want a letter, want a letter, want a letter to
    Before I let go (I let go)
    I want a letter, want a letter, want a letter to read

  31. How about NO

    Yes, its different, but its still sooooooooooooooooooooooo amazing. Maybe its just because i listen to all types of music, Mother Mother is my forever favorite though.

  32. TheFirstCause

    The entire new album is awesome. For me there is something to love about nearly every song. Letter is quickly becoming my favorite on an album of amazing songs.

  33. nemo and the finders

    I may be new to the fandom, but I think I love Mother Mother already XD

  34. BENNY VT

    Awesome 👌

  35. The Gardinator

    papa bless

  36. Deadkrow

    This is a really deep song, makes me reminisce on all those who I wish I could write a letter to and have it read by those who cannot receive it. One of my favorite songs on the album!

  37. Evangeline Quinn

    ABSOLUTELY ADORE THIS. ❤

    Can't wait to see you guys live on Friday!!! 👐

  38. cheyanne lois

    The moment I heard this song I knew it sounded similar to another by them, and just now I finally remembered which song it was! This sounds similar to one of my favourites from the album O my heart: Wisdom!

  39. livvo

    after listening to all the songs on this album, this is the one i love the most~

  40. Metaphysical Resonance

    I really like the sound of it but I'm not really a fan of the lyrics, especially the first couple of lines. They just seem a little shallow (not like vain, but like the opposite of deep).

  41. Andrea Ramos

    For some reason when I first heard this song I thought it went, "I want to live, I want to live, I want to live, I want to let it go."

  42. Bryan M

    First heard this song tonight. Damn!! What a great song!!! I think Mother Mother is going to have a new fan

  43. William Sevilla

    guys what i'm listening to on Valentine's

  44. Alisson França

    This song has so much passion. As a person who really wants to cuddle with someone I relate to this song a lot.

  45. Alex King

    this song had to grow on me. but i adore it now.

  46. Ashley Juarez

    my favorite song from the album

  47. Leslee Chavez

    I hope their relevancy only grows, idk but this song is truly different from all the other past songs.

  48. Corey Kuefler - ter Weeme

    i wrote a letter i did what he did oops

  49. Gr0ss B0yB

    I personally enjoyed what was going on with the drugs and love struck, but im not too sure with Letter and Baby Boy. I'd love to see more songs similar to The Sticks album, but I get that artists have to change, or they go absolutely nuts. Wish I could see you at the O'brians, mother mother, but sadly I have no one to go with

  50. Dropthefishtank

    "Oh, it's a song about unrequited love, or love lost or something like that. Writing letters and never getting a response. Funny, there's all these lines about losing things to the past."
    🎶Maybe it's the way I'm supposed to grieve🎶
    "OH, WELL THEN."

    Seriously though, I love the lyrics in this! Argh, this is such a well written song!

    Tender Man Child

    Dropthefishtank IKR

  51. GeneralSarcasm

    So pumped to see Mother Mother live at the end of February

  52. Roxie Morgan

    this is so true... i write a letter for my ex-boyfriend Joel Moreno but I never give it to him... that's the only thing about it... I'm afraid to give it to him.... Plz let me know if I should give it to him...

  53. Nancy Wang

    I LOVE MOTHER MOTHER

  54. Anxitey

    The chorus sounds rly good but like??? I liked the other albums better ,, they're definitely kinda changing their genre. The other songs had deeper meanings I feel like.

  55. cyborca

    I love it so much! Ahh, your music is legendary!

  56. astutes

    so excited for the album hnrghhhh. this is definitely my favorite song so far!!! <3333

  57. trefrog

    it's so... straight

    OH but that finish tho

  58. Damien Jones

    Love this!! <3

  59. Katelynn Hillier

    See you In Peterborough !! <3333333333333333333333333333

  60. Carson A

    This song is so touching. It reminds me of all the abusive relationships I've been in, and experiencing getting iced out for months at a time because they got so pissed off at me they refused to even acknowledge me. It hurt so bad, and sometimes, I still cry about it. I love MM, they really get the struggles people suffer from.

    Aaron YouDon'tNeedToKnowMyLastName

    jeez you're pretty nice huh, you too, but you still shouldn't write about that kind of stuff, it should stay private, as it is something you should be open about, to friends and people you know, but not to the internet where you know no one, like i said before, its essentially the same thing as walking up to a random person and telling them about how you were abused, which would be a really, really bad thing to do

    Prudence K

    thanks for sharing your experience, there's no reason to hide your past- it's nice for others with similar issues to not feel so alone in the world <3

    Carson A

    @Prudence K Exactly! Enjoy the little things that make us feel uplifted and connected to others in times of trouble (:

    LittleMurMurder

    I feel tbh 😂

    remy!!!

    god I can relate to this comment so much. the person who replied can go to hell. Im glad someone can relate

  61. Josippy

    This is not the mother mother that I loved. I guess nobody is immune to the short term appeal of mainstream and broader audiences. They've abandoned their sound that made them so unique.

    Sarifinx

    Josippy They're still unique in sound. They just made a more modern twist to their style.

    chat 453

    Why do you even listen to songs?

  62. Ms Puffball

    I love THIS

  63. Yaru Ent

    Fuck me guys.... That chorus blew me away. classic Mother Mother flow. loving this album.

  64. chrisgeorge9

    This album is going to be so sick

  65. Rachel Karat

    GOD THIS CHORUS IS TOO BEAUTIFUL

  66. Chadauw

    Didn't get into it at first but it grew on me. It just feels a bit more ''Vanilla'' than what i'm used to from Mother Mother.

  67. Darian Bradley

    Crying, I love this and I love this band. Been a fan since the beginning, my heart is full of love for this band, I owe so much to them <3

  68. JoJo leigh

    Holy sh°t how did i only just notice this. thanks youtube! XD this is awesome.

  69. weirdly cool

    I love every single one of you guys songs <3 you never disappoint

  70. andrew

    YESSS!!!!!!!!!FUCK IT UUPPP

  71. WitchDR

    Was alright with the trying something new (electronic sound) on your guy's last album... But I think I'm ready for you guys to go back to the O My Heart and Eureka sound that really pulled out your guy's genius song writing. The electronic sound just sounds a tad lazy at this point compared to the "real" instrumentation and song structure you guys at going for you before. This stuff is alright don't get me wrong, it just doesn't feel as genuine anymore as your old music... I have a feeling it will fall in the pop genre of albums, where the singles are really good like "Love Struck", but all the in between songs will be no more then filler tracks.

  72. Jane Sullivan

    fuck me up

  73. fruitcupguts

    👏👏👏👏

  74. Vera's Planet

    MORE MORE MORE!

  75. Dania Wyns

    You guys are the best!

  76. CL4RK HANCOCK

    their sound is changing to be more along with what is popular but it still sounds like mother mother to me and im still digging it so

    suddenlysarah

    Right? I love bands that change but yet still keep their initial style and it feels nice.

  77. shintaro

    HTHANK YOU

  78. Noroi Chan

    I WANNA SEND A LETTER TO THEM AND SAY THIS SONG IS FUCKING GREAT

  79. Jon Campbell

    The other2 songs they just released (and most their other songs) are better than this

  80. Dawn-Marie Rain

    Best band ever! I can listen to them all the time. 😍

  81. claire

    ive ascended

  82. Caleb Allen

    Man they have changed so much, I'm not sure how I feel about this.

    punchdrunkassassin

    Anchored Soul - yeah kind of a far cry from the cabaret pop of Touch Up, eh? Each album since has been great in their own way, but if you'd told me in 2007 they'd release a song like this I wouldn't have believed it.

    DoitForTheLolz1

    Definitely sounds more like Today's run of the mill pop, but I think at some point a band has to do a song or two that's sorta just "normal". I wouldn't say just yet that the new music will be nothing but this.

    Nalikey X

    Anchored Soul they still sound so amazing live though

    Caleb Allen

    Nalikey X True that.

  83. Clarisa Smith

    if you guys dont come back to denver im gonna cry!!

  84. Andrewiin

    Mother Mother just keeps on gettin' better! <3

  94. Sevaura

    😍😍😍😍😍💜

  95. Ryan Walters

    Anyone know if there is going to be a new album? And if so, when is it coming out? Loving the first three songs!

    fragrantpharaoh

    Letter, Love Stuck, and The Drugs are all pre-released songs from their new upcoming album No Culture. Mother Mother is currently touring, but the album will be released after the tour is done. If you want, you can pre-order their album now, or just wait until it's released and listen to it on Spotify or Youtube. Hope this helps :)

    Ryan Walters

    Thanks so much! I cannot wait to get it!

  96. Natalia Yev

    Ryan's singing high again!! Love it

    Red Wolf

    He's high!! Ha ha ha ha ha ha...
