    Lyrics

    I'm sitting here
    In my own head
    Thinking how you could be staring in
    Got my number two
    And I'm writing you
    Contemplating on the paper what I should do
    On the fireplace
    Or with the mailman
    Should I tell you or should I hold it in
    If my heart wasn't in it
    Baby you could just forget it
    I'd be gone in a New York minute

    You never give me attention
    I know you don't want bad intentions for us
    So I'm writing you
    But I always fail to mention
    'Cause you know I really don't like to fuss
    So I'm gonna hold it in

    I'm writing you a Dear John letter
    I tried to stay but it never got better
    I couldn't tell you face to face but I
    I had to let you know
    Sometimes I wanna hit the door
    I'm writing you Dear John

    Sometimes I think
    That I've had enough
    My hands freeze and I can't write fast enough
    I wanna get away
    But I can't obey
    When my heart speaks, you know I'm listening
    Some days, I'm really touchy and
    Some days, I'm willing to forget and
    Some days, I'm so in love with you
    Some days, I'm sad and blue
    Oh, when I don't check myself
    I get frustrated with you
    And I don't know what I'm gonna do
    I know that it's not just you
    It's some of my negligence too
    And I can't go through with mailing this to you

    Chorus (2x)

    When I don't check myself
    I get frustrated with you
    And I don't know what I'm gonna do
    I know that it's not just you
    It's some of my negligence too
    And I can't go through with mailing this to you

    Chorus (2x)

    I'm writing this letter
    Because it makes me feel better
    I'm writing this letter
    Because it makes me feel better
    I'm writing this letter
    Because it makes me feel better

    I'm writing this letter
    Because it ooh oh yeah
    I'm writing this letter baby
    I can't go through with it
    Oh no, no, no
    (Oh no, no, no)
    I can't, I can't
    I can't leave, I can't stay
    I can't go and I Mmm
    Mmm, Mmm, Mmm, Mmm, Mmm, Mmm, Mmm, Mmm, Mmm, Mmm, Mmm

    I'm writing you this letter
    I'm writing you Dear John (Dear John)
    Mmm, alright

    I'm writing a Dear John letter (7x)
