DEAR FRED ,

You say it couldn't work out
just because you love another
Or at least , that's what you say
But you don't seem so in love with her

And the way you talk about her
Doesn't show of too much of respect
We've both said that we are so alike
And somehow we knew that we could've become best friends
But I don't know when it came to that lonely hello salute down in the school halls
With no second look for each other

Was it the letter that I wrote you ,
That put you off for a while ,
Has stopped this friendly bond between us

Dear Fred ,
It's just another lonely one way road
and the traffic's just us , riding real slow
With that other girl on the other side
Maybe that it all seems so stupid tomorrow ,
But today it feels true

I surely miss the little things
The funny talks together
The way we gave each other cigarettes
Or ate in the Macdonald's
With never a joke too much to share ,
Never too little or too much money too spent

Dear Fred ,
It's just another lonely one way road
and the traffic's just us , riding real slow
With that other girl on the other side
Maybe that it all seems so stupid tomorrow ,
But today it feels true

We both have our bad sides
Something you told me
And something I knew
Or at least , you wrote it to me
A response on my letter
Returned in the same hour
between the scientific Math
Sums of numbers

But what I'm missing out on is love
Dear , Fred , from you .
