Brand New Colony
The Postal Service Lyrics


I'll be the grapes fermented
Bottled and served with the table set in my finest suit
Like a perfect gentlemen
I'll be the fire escape that's bolted to the ancient brick
Where you will sit and contemplate your day

I'll be the water wings that save you if you start drowning in an open tab
When your judgment's on the brink
I'll be the phonograph that plays your favorite albums back
As your lying there drifting off to sleep
I'll be the platform shoes and undo what heredity's done to you
You won't have to strain to look into my eyes
I'll be your winter coat buttoned and zipped straight to the throat
With the collar up so you won't catch a cold

I want to take you far from the cynics in his town
And kiss you on the mouth
We'll cut out bodies free from the tethers of this scene
Start a brand new colony
Where everything will change
We'll give ourselves new names, identities erased
The sun will hear the grounds
Under our bare feet in this brand new colony (this brand new colony)

Everything will change, ooh, ooh
Everything will change, ooh, ooh
Everything will change, ooh, ooh

I'll be the fire escape that's bolted to the ancient brick
Where you will sit and contemplate your day

I'll be the waterwings that save you if you start drowning in
An open tab when your judgment's on the brink.
I'll be the phonograph that plays your favorite
Albums back as you're lying there
Drifting off to sleep (drifting off to sleep)

I'll be the platform shoes, undo what heredity's done to you
You won't have to strain to look into my eyes
I'll be your winter coat, buttoned and zipped straight to the throat

And kiss you on the mouth
We'll cut our bodies free from the tethers of this scene
Start a brand new colony
Where everything will change, we'll give ourselves new names
Identities erased
The sun will heat the grounds under our bare feet
In this brand new colony (in this brand new colony)

Everything will change, ooh
Everything will change, ooh
Everything will change, ooh

This was the recessional song at my wedding back in 2006. Still happily married to my best friend, celebrating 14 years on 10/29/2020. He's still all the good things that keep me going.

Narcissistic comment why do you act like everything is about you, people are trying to enjoy music

Bailey Thomas

I love this so much

Audrey

@Lydia Alexandra Thank you for telling me your story!! Yeah, we just celebrated 15 years after moving across the US to the city we love most, and spending the weekend with our now-8-year-old daughter. Still make time for gaming and love, too. Let me know if you and your husband end up celebrating with this song; I'm really happy for you both.

Lydia Alexandra

So sweet! Reading this 2 days after your fifteenth anniversary!!! My hubby and I celebrate 12 years in January. We never had a wedding and every year I think maybe we will do it this year and this song is a great choice to celebrate with! Hope you are well.

Audrey

@Dylan Forsyth I do! We're a fortunate pair.
