Notes: Anyone who’s ever had a secret liaison in their life may understand this. Based on real experiences, this number captures some of the cloak and dagger elements and stealthy rendezvous of young loves within the framework of a mid-century pop song. I just let the tape roll as I wrote it, and left it fairly raw to maintain that vibe.

Lyrics:
i’ve been writing letters placed them in a book
in between the pages hidden in a nook
on the corner of the top shelf look around
i’ve been writing secret messages to you
i hope that you’ll be writing back to me real soon
i’ve been hiding treasures for you underground
tucked away in burrows hidden to be found
oh so beautiful and inestimable
i’ve been writing secret messages to you
i hope that i’ll be hearing back from you real soon
oh oh
i’ve been writing secret messages to you
i hope that you’ll be writing back to me real soon
wak four hundred yards due east past the stream
and then turn left at a willow tree that’s where you’ll see
a trail that leads to me
i’ve been writing letters placed them in a book
in between the pages hidden in a nook
on the corner of the top shelf look around
i’ve been writing secret messages to you
i hope that you’ll be writing back to me real soon
i’ve been writing secret messages to you
i hope that you’ll be writing back to me real soon
