Dear Cathy, all that I love keeps changing
And nobody tells me what for
Dear Valerie, all of my heart keeps breaking
And I don’t have any more

Now I’m terrified inside about
How to live and how to live without

Dear Cathy, ever since graduation
I’ve been wondering what I learned
Dear Valerie, was it my imagination
Or did my daydreams get out of turn

It was nonsense that I was thinking of
But the one I lost was the only one I loved

And I’d get by just fine
If only you were mine
When you left I started losing track of time

My focus blurred and strayed
And by the time we left ninth grade
I was lost and lonely, silent and afraid

Dear Cathy, I can’t forget those days
And all that we suffered for
But dear Valerie, was it just a bad phase
Then it shouldn’t hurt anymore

And there’s still too much I don’t understand
Why good things change, and bad things never can

When everything makes sense
Including accidents
And I find my place along this troubled way

Until then, dear Cathy
Come back and please tell me
How to start and where to go and what to say
