"Postcard" as written by Garrain Stephan Jones, Neely Jr Dinkins, Vito A Colapietro, Shaunise Harris, Brandon Williams and Walter Lloyd Whitney....
It's pouring outside and my roof is leaking
I just let the raindrops bleed out the ink from my notebook sheets
And today is a Thursday and when it's three days late
I marked on the calendar and circled the day's date
This is the last straw, this isn't life here
I'm packing my dreams up and leaving my nightmares

And they say go west 'til you feel the sunset
And there you'll become a star
So I traded my skinny jeans for dreams and limousines
And I'm gone

I'll send you a postcard, saying I'm all right
I'll write on the back that I'm in love with life
And sign my name in the stars
My radio's turned up, a full tank in my car
And I promise we'll be together
I'll never say never, I'll always remember
Goodbye
(Always remember, goodbye)
'Cause I gotta go
I'll send you a postcard

Smashing on the gas, 95 on the highway
Got about a thousand more miles to go, I might make it by Friday
The road's never ending, I'm never slow-paced
The choice is now all mine for my destination
They ask why I'm rushing, my dreams are waiting
So fasten your seatbelts, 'cause I'm gonna make it

And they say go west 'til you feel the sunset
And there you'll become a star
So I traded my skinny jeans for dreams and limousines
And I'm gone

I'll send you a postcard, saying I'm all right
I'll write on the back that I'm in love with life
And sign my name in the stars
My radio's turned up, a full tank my car
And I'll promise we'll be together
I'll never say never, I'll always remember
Goodbye
(Always remember, goodbye)
'Cause I gotta go
I'll send you a postcard

I'll send you a postcard

To whom it may concern, whoever this gets to
There's no looking back, I took off my rear view
Got my hopes on the passenger side
There's only room for two
And I'll

I'll send you a postcard, saying I'm all right
I'll write on the back that I'm in love with life
And sign my name in the stars
My radio's turned up, a full tank in my car
And I promise we'll be together
I'll never say never, I'll always remember
Goodbye
(Always remember, goodbye)
'Cause I gotta go
I'll send you a postcard

    My InterpretationThis song is amazing for anyone aspiring to be anything!
    That's why I love Jordin Sparks, she can write things everyone can relate to!


    Tbh, I think this can be interpreted in two ways.

    A-
    She's living in a town where she doesn't really feel she belongs. She can't go on just living the life she's living when deep down she knows it's not what she wants to come of her life. So she packs up & just leaves to follow her dreams.

    B-
    She was with a boy who she loves dearly, but he was holding her back to where she was. She wanted more of her life but knew to get it she was going to have to walk away from what they had. This is my personal interpretation of the song.

    That's why I like it, most of the songs so upbeat yet it has such a dark meaning behind it. I like that.
