A Reminder That The Pen Is Mightier Than The Sword

Just shedding a quick moody tear listening to Alecia Nugent sing Paper & Pen...

First Verse:

There’s a letter in a shoe box in a dresser she keeps locked.
But she’s never read it all the way through.
It was the last one he wrote her, she was sure it was over
from all that he told her in the first line or two.
He said times are hard know, got some things left to sort out
And a man and his freedom don’t easily part.
That’s were she stopped reading, her soul was bleeding.
So she chose her weapon and went for his heart.

Chorus:

With paper & pen she got her last word in
I never loved you was lie she wrote him.
He couldn’t believe the reply he’d received.
What sad tragedy for good love to end.
Ah who needs a knife when you can
take someone’s life with Paper & Pen.
Ah who needs a knife when you can
take someone’s life with Paper & Pen.

Second Verse:

Well, they say he went crazy. In just a few days,
he got on the bottle and went out of his mind.
To this day, she don’t know in the letter that he wrote,
He asked for her hand in the very last line.
