DEAR JOHN LETTER
JUST WHITNEY...

Uh, Uh, Uh, Oh, Uh, Oh, C'mon, Wha, Uh
Yeah...

Iím sitting here
In my own head
Thinkin' how you could be staring in
Got my number 2 and Iím writing you
Contemplating on paper what I should do
On the fire place or with the mail man
Should I tell you or should I hold it in
If my heart wasnít in it
Baby you can just forget it
Iíll be gone in a New York minute

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

Iím writing you a dear John letter (Dear John letter)
I tried to stay but it never got better (better)
I couldnít tell you face to face but I
I had to let you know
Sometimes I wanna hit the door
Iím writing you, Dear John

Sometimes I think that Iíve had enough
My hands freeze
And I canít write fast enough
I wanna get away
But I canít obey
When my hearts speaks you know Iím listening
Some days Iím ready to jet and
Some days Iím willing to forget and
Some days Iím so in love with you
Some days Iím sad and blue, Oh

When I donít check myself
I get frustrated with you
And I donít know what Iím gonna do
I know that itís not just you
Itís some of my negligence too
And I canít go through with mailing this to you

Dear John letter (Dear John letter)
I tried to stay but it never got better (better)
I couldnít tell you face to face but I
I had to let you know
Sometimes I wanna hit the door

Iím writing you a Dear John letter
I tried to stay but it never got better
I couldnít tell you face to face but I
I had to let you know
(Sometimes) I wanna hit the door

When I donít check myself
I get frustrated with you
And I donít know what Iím gonna do
I know that itís not just you
Itís some of my negligence too
And I canít go through with mailing this to you

Dear John letter (Dear John letter, letter, letter)
I tried to stay but it never got better
I couldnít tell you face to face but I
I had to let you know
Sometimes I wanna hit the door

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

Iím writing this letter
Because it makes me feel better
Iím writing this letter
