First Aid Kit – Postcard Lyrics

SHARE
[Verse 1] Honey, now that your shackles are gone
And you’re out there on your own
Won’t you let me know
If things get hard
Honey, now your shackle’s been lifted
You’re a sweet young thing and you’re oh so gifted
Will you let me know
If things turn bad

[Pre-Chorus] I wasn’t looking for trouble but trouble came
I wasn’t looking to change, I’ll never be the same
But that’s not what you make it, baby

[Chorus] Send me a postcard
When you get to where you’re going
Send me a line
To everything you’ve left behind

[Verse 2] Honey, now that I’ve found my way
And I miss you more than I can say
Won’t you promise to
Say a prayer for me
Honey, now that the morning’s come
We’re both still out on the run
Won’t you let me know
If you feel free

[Pre-Chorus] We were looking to mend it but we tore it apart
And I went and broke my own goddamned heart
See, that’s not what you make it, baby

[Chorus] Send me a postcard
When you get to where you’re going
Send me a line
To everything you’ve left behind

[Spoken] Pick it for me, James

[Bridge] I was just a kid when I fell for you
I’m not much older now but even then I knew
That the road was steep and full of stride

[Pre-Chorus] I never knew what to say, could never get it right
And I’m alone again at the end of night
But that’s not what you make it, baby

[Chorus] Send me a postcard
When you get to where you’re going
Send me a line
To everything you’ve left behind
