Solid Air: Listen

Postcard (from Heartbreak Town CD, 1996)

(Solid Air)
POSTCARD
Riding down the highway is just a state of mind
A thousand miles away from trouble this time
I'll send you a postcard.
I've been driving by night, I've been sleeping by day
Just driving and singing my blues away
I'll send you a postcard.

Now there's a quarter in a phone booth
On an empty street.
Sunday morning paper
is sweeping up Saturday night.
An the road you've never taken
Is the only road I know.
I'll send you a postcard from the edge of the world.

I've been talking to the walls, I've been walking in the rain
I don't think I'll ever see you again
I'll send you a postcard.
There's just this river of road and I guess it's mine
And this moon that glows like a welcome sign
I'll send you a postcard.

Now there's a quarter in a phone booth
On an empty street.
Sunday morning paper
is sweeping up Saturday night.
An the road you've never taken
Is the only road I know.
I'll send you a postcard from the edge of the world.

Riding down the highway is just a state of mind
A thousand miles away from you this time
I'll send you a postcard.
Sayin', How're you doin', I guess I'm fine
I tried to call, but I was short one dime
So I'm sending you this....

Now there's a quarter in a phone booth
On an empty street.
Sunday morning paper
is sweeping up Saturday night.
An the road you've never taken
Is the only road I know
I'll send you a postcard from the edge of the world.
