A Tattered Line of String
The Postal Service Lyrics


We drained every dive
In the lower east side
And you failed to catch the train back to Queens
So you came to my room
We did some things that we knew not to do
In the glow of the night's golden hue

You've got a tattered line of string
And you tied around everything
That you want to call your own
But it never seems to hold

When we woke, we agreed
That we would not ever speak
Of this night to anyone that we both knew
And you said, "Every time we kissed
I felt something that couldn't exist"
And I confessed that I thought I felt it too

I've got a tattered line of string
And I tied around everything
That I want to call my own
But it never seems to hold

I've got a tattered line of string
And I tied around everything
That I want to call my own
But it never seems to hold

Everything
Everything
Never seems to hold
Never seems to hold

You've got a tattered line of string
And you tied around everything
That you want to call your own
But it never seems to hold

I've got a tattered line of string
And I tied around everything
That I want to call my own
But it never seems to hold

Answers! To the best of our knowledge at this time, no, The Postal Service is not currently working on new material. And no, "A Tattered Line of String" is not a Give Up leftover from 2003. For those of you who like details like this, this song was actually begun in 2006 and finished up in 2012.

Alfred Ramirez

Its like a cut from Smile

Todd Marshall

Interesting!

David Brajkovic

My dream is that they do another tour because I missed the last one

Valente Rojas

Mihael Jurcan why did they split? :(

Michael Schepis

I love both the postal service and owl city! So great to FINALLY hear some new songs from these guys :)

Jeremy Jenner

I agree. Synthpop is a genre, it's not specific to The Postal Service. We need more synthpop artists with this kind of sound!

Jessica Martinez

I got to see owl city this past weekend and they played stuff from every album they have and I agree with you. They have their own style and haven't copied anyone.

André Garibaldi

I wish so badly a new record of Postal Service...

GD Trubactor

Well there’s always Death Cab for Cutie it’s sung by the same guy
