One "formula" to consider:

For the past X years, I've delivered successfully in this <insert area of expertise> as a <insert role>. For my career goals, I am interested in doing <insert type of work you are applying for based on the position>. I found your position and it sounded like a good match for my skill set and overall career goals. I can contribute my skills and experience to the position as well as grow in the areas I am interested in developing.
