Well old postcards
Are romantic when they’re intact
And old postcards
Are romantically full of fat

And the ones you have to watch
Are the ones that keep coming back
And you came back
Yes you came back

Yellow cards sit on old card
And the streets have changed
But I think I’m still the same

And it’s not what I want to hear or what I want to see
But your skin’s covered in postcards from you to me
To me

When you see me sit by myself
You’ll think that I’m waiting for someone else
But I’m wishing for somewhere else I’m
Wishing for somewhere else

Two postcards in a month or so
Well I don’t know
I just don’t know

And it’s not what I want to hear or what I want to see
But your skin’s covered in postcards from you to me
To me

You're too mean

    General CommentWell old post cards
    Are romantic when they’re intact
    And old postcards
    Are romantically filled of fat

    And the ones you have to watch
    are the ones that keep coming back.
    And you came back
    Yes you came back

    Well old cards sit on old card
    And the streets have changed
    But I think I’m still the same

    And it’s not what I want to hear or what I want to see
    But your skin’s covered in postcards from you to me
    To me

    When you see me sit by myself
    You’ll think that I’m waiting for someone else
    But I’m wishing for somewhere else I’m
    Wishing for somewhere else

    Two postcards in a month or so
    Well I don’t know
    I just don’t know

    And it’s not what I want to hear or what I want to see
    But your skin’s covered in postcards from you to me
    To me

    You're too mean
    You're too mean
