(Original)

1.
Once I got e-mails from her nearly every day, yeah.
I wrote anything to her, but "I love You" was too hard for me to say, yeah.
We never sent us photographs, not in all those years.
We always found suitable words to dry our tears.

Refrain:
My pen pal is dead.
My pen pal is dead, I´m going mad,
my pen pal is dead.

2.
Then I got an e-mail on a sunny summerday, yeah.
`til then I was the happiest man in the world, going my way, yeah.
The last words she wrote were: "Goodby, things have changed."
From that moment on I was completely disarranged.

Refrain:
My pen pal is dead.
My pen pal is dead, I´m going mad,
my pen pal is dead.

Bridge:
Then I saw that till girl in the supermarket, many years later.
We learned to know each other and some day she took me home.

3.
By the way she told me of a pen pal she once loved more than anything.
The day before her child was born her boyfriend stopped her bittersweat romance.
The last words she wrote were: "Goodby, things have changed."
From that moment on she was completely disarranged.

Refrain:
My pen pal is back.
It´s enough to drive a person mad.
My pen pal is back.
