On 18 April 2013, Murs revealed via Twitter that “Dear Darlin'” would be the third single released from Right Place Right Time. “Dear Darlin'” was co-written by Murs, Ed Drewett and Jim Eliot. Of the track, Murs said: “Writing with Ed and him being my friend helped, as we sat there for hours before writing, going over old relationships and recalling their scenarios. It’s about writing to someone to tell them how I feel about losing someone. It’s not the kind of song you’d expect me and Ed to write, as we’re bubbly characters, but we were able to open up to each other.” Wikipedia®.

Digital Spy asked Olly Murs if the song is based on personal experience? He replied: “I suppose in a way it is. One of my ex-girlfriends, we used to write a lot of letters to each other because she lived in Leeds and I was in Essex. Whenever I knew I wasn’t going to see her for a while, I’d write her a letter – and I think people have lost sight of doing that now. I remember writing little love letters at school to girls, and we decided for this song that the lyrics should be based on me writing a letter.” Songfacts®.

Olly Murs – Dear Darlin’ Lyrics:
Dear darlin’, please excuse my writing.
I can’t stop my hands from shaking
‘Cause I’m cold and alone tonight.

I miss you and nothing hurts like no you.
And no one understands what we went through.
It was short. It was sweet. We tried.

And if my words break through the wall
And meet you at your door,
All I can say is “Girl, I mean them all.”

Dear darlin’, please excuse my writing.
I can’t stop my hands from shaking
‘Cause I’m cold and alone tonight.

I miss you and nothing hurts like no you.
And no one understands what we went through.
It was short. It was sweet. We tried. We tried.

[Woman:] I understand where he’s coming from.

Been thinking about the bar we drank in.
Feeling like the sofa was sinking.
I was warm in the hold of your eyes.

So if my words break through the wall
To meet you at your door,
All I can say is “Girl, I mean them all.”

Dear darlin’, please excuse my writing.
I can’t stop my hands from shaking
‘Cause I’m cold and alone tonight.

I miss you and nothing hurts like no you.
And no one understands what we went through.
It was short. It was sweet. We tried.

Oh I can’t cope. These arms are yours to hold.

And I miss you and nothing hurts like no you.
And no one understands what we went through.
It was short. It was sweet. We tried.
We tried…
