“Such Great Heights” by The Postal Service

Let me share this song with you, a personal favourite… I know it is also performed by Iron & Wine, but I like this rendition better:

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

 

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 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 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 stay
