Nothing Better
The Postal Service Lyrics


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...

Will someone please call a surgeon
Who can crack my ribs and repair this broken heart
That you're deserting for better company?
I can't accept that it's over
And I will block the door like a goalie tending the net
In the third quarter of a tied-game rivalry

So just say how to make it right
And I swear I'll do my best to comply

Tell me: Am I right to think that there could be nothing better
Than making you my bride and slowly growing old together?

I feel I must interject here
You're getting carried away feeling sorry for yourself
With these revisions and gaps in history
So let me help you remember
I've made charts and graphs that should finally make it clear
I've prepared a lecture on why I have to leave

So, please back away and let me go
I can't my darling I love you so
Oh, oh

Tell me: Am I right to think that there could be nothing better
Than making you my bride and slowly growing old together?
Don't you feed me lines about some idealistic future
Your heart won't heal right if you keep tearing out the sutures

I know that I have made mistakes
And I swear I'll never wrong you again
You've got a lure I can't deny
But you've had your chance so say goodbye
Say goodbye

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."

I remembered when my mom used to play this album, mostly this song in particular, in the car all the time when I was a kid, it was the early 2000s and my dad had divorced her, I grew very attached to this song and enjoyed it but didn't think about the lyrics too much because I was naive. I'm in my 20s now and re-listening to this for the first time in many years and now have a better understanding of the lyrical concept, it made sense to me why my mom used to always put this song on at the time. It's kind of saddening now I fully understand the relation between this song and my mom's feelings over the divorce, but I'm also glad she introduced me to this band and be a part of my childhood. So thank you, mom.

I have a very similar story. Almost down to a T. I showed this comment to my mom and she said she can see how I could have written it :(

Our experiences are similar. My parents did not divorce but my mother played this song all the time. It was the first song I cared about that wasnt marry had a little lamb
