"Ages Of You" as written by and Peter Buck Bill Berry....
[Chorus:]
Postcard stowaway within
Pristine indigo without
Banded ottoman as such
Sofa seated one too much
All along the range, all along the range
Ages of you
Ages of you
Ages of you

[Chorus:]

Train pulls over hanging bridge
Conductor looks up, thinks
Out and down, hands stuck to the left
To the right, you should fall,
The horses just don't gossip anymore

[Chorus:]

Ages of you
Ages of you
Ages of you

    General CommentOne of the best songs on Dead Letter Office.
    It would have fit on Reckoning very well (although Peter Buck said that the band had got tired of the song).

    The lyrics are a bit strange, but I think it's about someone remembering a girl he loved long qgo.
    All her postcards are stowed away in a drawer, but whenever he looks at them again, he remembers the past (earlier "ages" of her).

    The second verse is even less clear, but I think the train is a metaphor for love, and the hanging bridge is the relationship that's over with the moment when the train falls.
