LETTER FROM SAN FRANCISCO
Lyrics and music by Michael Phillips



It may sound like a truism, but the message of this song is that you should never write an overly 'sweet' letter to a married woman who you have a crush on, and especially under the influence of the mellow pre-springtime Californian air.

I wrote a letter from San Francisco,
I mailed it down on Market Street.
I wrote a letter from San Francisco,
I mailed it down on Market Street,
T´was one letter too many,
And one that was just too sweet.

It was on my birthday morning
When I caught my breath in my hotel room.
It was on my birthday morning,
When I caught my breath in my hotel room.
The sky was all cloudy,
The sun was shrouded in gloom.

Back home just a few words on the phone,
I didn´t know what I´d done wrong.
Back home just a few words on the phone,
I didn´t know what I´d done wrong.
She just said I´d pushed things too far,
And we should go back where we belonged.

Next day she sent me a note,
That hurt me more than I can tell.
Next day she sent me a note,
That hurt me more than I can tell.
Instead of hittin´ the seventh heaven,
I´ve been left goin´ through hell.

I didn´t mean to cause ill feelings,
Lord, I didn´t mean to cause bad blood.
I didn´t mean to cause ill feelings,
Lord, I didn´t mean to cause bad blood.
Now there´s an area that´s off limits,
And outside I´m bound to crawl in the mud.

Everything´s come off the hooks,
Enough to leave a man cryin´.
Everything´s come off the hooks,
Enough to leave a man cryin´.
But if someone asks me how I am doin´,
I just say, 'Oh, thanks, I´m fine.'

Before I left for the West Coast,
There´d been a writing on the wall.
Before I left for the West Coast,
There´d been a writing on the wall.
But I paid no heed to the warning,
I wanted more, and now I´ve lost it all.

I wrote a letter from San Francisco,
I mailed it down on Market Street.
I wrote a letter from San Francisco,
I mailed it down on Market Street.
I hope next time she reads it,
She´ll see there´s tears on the sheet.
