Such Great Heights
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 puzzle pieces from the clay
And true it may seem like a stretch
But it's thoughts like this that catch
My troubled head when you're away
And when I am missing you to death

And when you are 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 tried my best to leave
This all on your machine
But the persistent beat
It sounded thin upon the sending

And that frankly will not fly
You'll hear the shrillest highs
And lowest lows with the windows down
And 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 stay

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

(They will see us waving from such great heights)
(Come down now)
They will see us waving from such great heights
(Come down now)

And when we kiss they're perfectly aligned

And I have to speculate

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

They will see us waving from such great heights
(Come down now)

When my mom and I were really struggling, and we had no furniture in our place except a folding table, two chairs, and a couple of blow-up mattresses, my mom would plug some speakers into her laptop and blast this in the morning for us to dance to before I left for school. There was 6 month span in 8th grade when it was just us, and my dad was still in Costa Rica, trying to sell our house. But my mom's "morning mixes" kept every hard day starting good..... I love this song.

My good memories with this song are similar. I hope things are on the way to being better now.

@Billie Jean davey It's the only thing every human seems to share, no matter how wealthy or how little you have. Music is a part of being who we are alot of the time.

sometimes all we have is music 🥺

My mom did the exact same thing when we where so struggling to get by. Everyone needs a mom to pep them up in the morning even when times are hard. They will always love and show you the best with what they have.

One of my favourite things about YouTube is reading the comments sections of song videos and seeing other people’s memories associated with the song in question. The memories are as vast as the people who share them but speaks to the ways we can all connect with one another as people. 😊

Truth. Purchasing my first house, thinking I'd be a forever single cat lady, then meeting my now husband a month later. We still have cats ❤️

Indeed. The beach. A girl. Fun things to ingest. This song. Such great heights = achieved. :) That’s my association.
