Nothing Better
by The Postal Service

I am thinking it's a sign
That the freckles in our eyes
Are mirror images and
When we kiss they're perfectly aligned

And I have to speculate
That God himself did make us into
Corresponding shapes like puzzles pieces
From the clay

True, it may seem like a stretch
But it's thoughts like this
That catch my troubled head
When you're away, when I am missing you to death

When you were out there on the road
For several weeks of shows
And when you scan the radio
I hope this song will guide you home

They will see us waving from such great heights
"Come down now," they'll say
But everything looks perfect from far away
"Come down now," but we'll stay

I've tried my best to leave
This all on your machine
But the persistent beat
Sounded thin upon listening

That frankly will not fly
You will hear the shrillest highs
And lowest lows with the windows down
When this is guiding you home

They will see us waving from such great heights
"Come down now," they'll say
But everything looks perfect from far away
"Come down now," but we'll say...

This was my jam in high school. Trying to explain it to people was also my favorite thing.

"Imagine a guy singing to a girl who broke up with him and the girl is telling him that the relationship was never what he remembers it as, but with Mario sounds as the backing music."

Mr. M

Lmfao, that is so perfect

Aye!! Well said

"this album stopped me from killing myself"

So odd to give agency to an series of sounds as the reason for why you prevented yourself from committing harm to yourself.

If you always rely on external sources for verification for your happiness, when those external sources are removed, you'll be worse off than when you started.

Seek to make your future self enjoy your past by influencing your current reality, whatever it may be.

This is an exquisite interpretation, my friend.

I love this song because of the strong characters and the subtle humor. The male's hyperbolic professions of his pain ("will someone please call a surgeon? who can crack my ribs and repair this broken heart") are just so perfectly contrasted to the female's over-the-top logical attitude to the situation ("I've made charts and graphs that will finally make it clear; I've prepared a lecture, for why I have to leave"). Many of us have been on both sides of this situation, but seeing it from an external perspective really gives it a lightness that is both unfamiliar and refreshing.

@Anthony Mendoza there is no subtle humor about heartbreak.heartbreak literally feels like your heart is breaking.

@Crackling Rosie Make Me Smile "Subtle humor" not "LMFAO"
