"Lost In The Post" as written by and Daniel Joseph/murphy Haggis....
I should have known you didn't have the time my dear
To let this twenty something bring you down with his list of fears
I'd like to think we had some good times though
It's just my inability to think outside the box I know!

She was signed, sealed and lost in the post,
Gone where all the letters we write to Santa go
(Go to Santa go!)

I could see your interest wane my dear
She wanted Mary Poppins and I took her to King Lear
Yes we've had some spills shall I say
And I thought you were going to leave, but not that you'd evaporate


She was signed, sealed and lost in the post,
Gone where all the letters we write to Santa go
(Go to Santa go!)

Please go to Santa go to Santa go go go

She was signed, sealed and lost in the post,
Gone where all the letters we write to Santa go
(Go to Santa Go!)

    General Commenti can't believe how good the whole album is, i thought at first they were just going to be another generic " indie" band, but songs like this prove that they have great song writing skills, both lyrically and musically. i think this song is about a guy ( and from the sounds of it its an experience the lead singer has had) who really likes a girl who was either friends with a girl he really liked or his girlfriend, and they have now drifted apart, due to the singers percieved boringness and is just accepting that he is losing her even though he still likes her, and is basically giving up on it. just an amazing band with great lyrics in their music

    General CommentI absolutly love all their songs, but some reason this one stands out.
    I wonder if they wrote this around xmas time? :)
    Their songs are so... 'normal', yet stil quite deep if you get me...

    General CommentHa, yeah! I agree with everyone's thoughts.

    I think it's about a relationship that was innocent when they were young and only friends, but as they got older she got more of the older boys attention, and he just couldn't compare. More 'out of your league' references as well

    This was one of the first songs that got me into The Wombats' music. :)

    General CommentMaybe saying she was signed and sealed meant that he practically had her but then she disappeared mysteriously as many of my things in the post have, or even that someone who did not own her stole her from him!!

    Just like my letter to santa, where did that go?

    General Commentthis is a play on stevie wonder's singned, sealed, delivered much like let's dance to joy division is a mickey take of joy division. just makes the song meaning clearer and amusingly witty :) as most witty things are i guess.
