Conor Oberst - Get Well Cards

rate me

All the peacock people left the plumes in a pile<br />

They look good to a fault<br />

And the Gulf water's warm like a bathtub<br />

Full of lavender and epsom salt<br />

<br />

See a bleach blond boy put his long board down<br />

Help his girl get her sunscreen on<br />

I thought about you in your little house<br />

Think you're lonely but I could be wrong and... <br />

<br />

I wanna be your bootlegger<br />

Wanna mix you up something strange<br />

Braid your hair like a sister<br />

Maim you like a hurricane<br />

<br />

Right there, that's the postman sleeping in the sand<br />

He's got a letter to deliver, but I can't stay mad, oh<br />

Right there, that's the postman asleep in the sand<br />

He's got a get-well-card to deliver<br />

He's gonna do it by hand, he's gonna do it by hand<br />

<br />

Now they drive the cars up and down the beach<br />

It's ridiculous and everybody knows<br />

Hear the Mustangs rev at the four way stop<br />

You get ghosted when the light says go<br />

<br />

But in a town like this, in the checkered flag dawn<br />

It's so empty you could make somebody dream<br />

So maybe it's you, in your four-post bed<br />

Fell asleep with still the blood in your teeth and... <br />

<br />

I wanna be your happiness<br />

I wanna be your common sense pain<br />

Wrap your head in a picket fence<br />

Rebuild after the hurricane<br />

<br />

Right there, that's the postman sleeping in the sand<br />

He's got my letters to deliver, but I'm still not mad<br />

Right there, that's the postman asleep in the sand<br />

He's got a get-well-card to deliver<br />

He's gonna do it by hand<br />

He's gonna do it, he's gonna do it<br />

He's gonna do it, he's gonna do it<br />

He's gonna do it, he's gonna do it... by hand<br />

<br />

Oh<br />

Right there, that's the postman sleeping in the sand<br />

He's got a letter to deliver, but I can't stay mad, oh<br />

Right there, that's the postman asleep in the sand<br />

He's got a head stack now to deliver<br />

He's wants to do it by hand<br />

He's gonna do it, he's gonna do it<br />

He's gonna do it, he's gonna do it<br />

He's gonna do it, he's gonna do it<br />

He's gonna do it, he's gonna do it... by hand</
