Lyrics The postman of Blindman'S Holiday

The postman

It starts with a heart and a hand on the shoulder
Ends without warning the lines just get colder
The patches wear thin the gimmicks get older
I told her, I told her, I told her
Well first we fall and then we fall faster
It's hard to learn but it's harder to master
It's hard not to break
When you're made out of plaster
I asked her, I asked her, I asked her, I asked her
She said it's no use
Your friends will all snow you
The policeman will throw you in jail
The postman is reading
The postman is reading my mail

A steady remind crawls up from the tide
It's a safe in a box with a rock locked inside
How can I laugh when I know that you lied
I cried, I cried
Well daddy you left my tears on your shirt

Your mind on yourself
Your eyes on a skirt
I lay down and trace my name in the dirt
It hurt you know it hurt
Wherever I'm headed I will not forget it
The tracker is tight on my tail
The postman is reading
The postman is reading my mail

The years disappear my nightmares repeated
Losing again I thought I could beat it
I'll write you love songs whenever you need it
I pleaded, I pleaded, I pleaded
She said it's no use there ain't nothin' for it
You can't forget it babe but I can't ignore it
A love lost letter unopened I tore it
I swore it, I swore it, and swore it
It can't be defended, the world's been upended
The son of a bondsman skipped bail
The postman is reading
The postman is reading my mail
