I am looking forward to hearing this song, but it is interesting that his friend Carrie Fisher's first novel is entitled 'Postcards From the Edge'

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Postcards-Edge-Carrie-Fisher/dp/1849833648/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1381245186&sr=8-1&keywords=carrie+fisher+postcards

I totally like this song. Reminds me to a warm summer night with friends on the beach - all are happy and free, without sorrows!

I hope these lyrics are correct?

Sundays sitting on your back porch
And I came on with a couple of chords
And I played for you.
You let me keep you entertained
With stories I exaggerate
That you know untrue
And as you sit there making daisy chains
And I throw in a hand grenade
And tell you how it is I really feel for you.

Iím sending postcards from my heart.
Your love for a postmark and then,
You know that you make me feel like
Weíve been caught like kids in the school yard again.
And I canít keep it to myself
Canít spell it any better
LOVE forever
I hope you know that
Iím sending a postcard
I donít care who sees what Iíve said
Or if the whole world knows whatís in my head.


We chased the sun til it got away
On a bicycle that your daddy made
But not made for two
Then we sat out on your rocking chair
You with a flower in your hair
That I found for you
Now then Monday always comes around
And its sad because I canít see you now
Want you to know youíre always in my head

Iím sending postcards from my heart.
Your love for a postmark and then,
You know that you make me feel like
Weíve been caught like kids in the school yard again.
And I canít keep it to myself
Canít spell it any better
LOVE forever
I hope you know that
Iím sending a postcard
I donít care who sees what Iíve said
Or if the whole world knows whatís in my head.



You know sometimes its hard to see
You say the words that torture me
But inside I know exactly how I feel
The things that I canít say out loud
Iíll find a place to write it down
I hope that they will find you in the end

Iím sending postcards from my heart.
Your love for a postmark and then,
You know that you make me feel like
Weíve been caught like kids in the school yard again.
And I canít keep it to myself
Canít spell it any better
LOVE forever
I hope you know that
Iím sending a postcard
I donít care who sees what Iíve said
Or if the whole world knows whatís in my head.


Know oh oh know oh oh know oh oh
All the things I want you to know oh oh know oh oh know oh oh
All the things I want you to know oh oh know oh oh know oh oh
All the things I want you to know oh oh know oh oh know oh oh
All the things I want you to know oh oh know oh oh know oh oh
All the things I want you to know oh oh know oh oh know oh oh
All the things I want you to know.

I love this song, it reminds me of the movie Tom Sawyer, when he fell in love with Becky A movie I watched as a kid. Its sweet and about young love. Or guilty love.

And was there a ukulele in there somewhere?

its a cute sound and makes me think of summer and getting into mischief

'LOVE forever', aww, so cute, we've all done that haven't we, its fun to think of the past and our childhood sweethearts, and this is what this song helps to create.

Hi Sunlight! I think the lyrics are mostly right, I edited them where I heard something different, but I may be wrong.

I thought about the same thing as you, TOM SAWYER!! It's a really cute song and it got me thinking James must really be in love

Like a Reggae song, sounds really hand made, fresh like a cool see breeze during a beach party. Lovely.

While I was listening to this song yesterday evening I thought, something of it sounds familiar to me, but I could not find out wherefrom these little sequences come. But my mind seemed to be in operation all night and "let move cardboxes with lots of files from shelf to shelf on the q.t."

During brushing my teeth this early morning, the "memory fell out of my mouth and crashed on the floor."

Some seconds of this song (recorded chords and voice) sound a bit of the "Young Folks" style, that I really love as well.

That's what I thought too! Funny you mention it because that's what I wanted to say the other day and forgot because I was so taken up with the lyrics. Thanks for mentioning it .

I had the most amazing miraculous experience when I listened to this song. They all work miraculously within and around me anyway. I read somewhere that music is balance in masculine and feminine energies. The lines are the masculine and the notes the feminine.

This experience made me cry though for it also kindof shocked, scared me...

From my heart chakra upwards, energy formed into a heart and from that heart a thread upwards in another heart, I believe a third one was created above that one. I can feel energy and I saw it with my third eye.

Thank you beautiful James
I wish I was as poetic as you but words would never be enough to express what I feel.

I didn't even know Postcards and Telephone existed. Or Hollywood or Heart to Heart of Bonfire Heart or Blue on Blue. They were all written, produced and recorded by people other than Tom Rothrock, who I worked with. We did 8 songs total in our batch, the rest were done independently and combined with our stuff to make the record. If you go to the Moon Landing Wikipedia page you can see who did what songs. No idea what the live shows will entail, but I did see James holding a Ukelele in a rehearsal photo.. so you have a pretty good chance of hearing Postcards or Satellites live I would guess.

Postcards sound a bit like the traditional afro Caribbean style with this special Calypso rhythm which let me feel as if I could dance through the day.

It is a lovely song. Listen to it 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 times without a break. Stupid or boring behaviour? Maybe YES.

It is always a good decision to write letters and postcards if you feel they should be written. But it is always a better decision to wait one night or two or three before you give them to the letter box. Sometimes it is the best decision to keep them and never to send them away. I am honest, I kept some of my written letters. And when I read some of them later I was glad that I had not sent them away.

Oh I just adore this song! I love the words and how innocent and sweet it is. Love the part about throwing the hand grenade in and saying how he really feels. I can just see them sitting on the porch and he is singing for her. Sigh...what a beautiful image. I love the images that these songs conjure up in my mind. Just simple things like sitting on the porch and riding a bike together til the sun goes down, picking a flower for her hair, etc. is so beautiful to me. When you love someone, you don't really need that much to be happy.

Love the exaggerated stories line as we know he does that! And the chorus is just fantastic. Love the music. Oh I'm hopeless. The L.O.V.E forever I thought was a bit corny at first listen but now it's okay because it goes with the rest of the song. And sending a postcard as opposed to a letter because you love someone so much and don't care what anyone thinks about how you feel....sounds like the real thing.

But then Monday always comes around and it's sad cuz I can't see you now...someone has to go back to work? Always in my head. Just so sweet. A beautiful love song.

The bridge sounds a bit like therapy but that's a good thing! lol And the ending sounds like the record got stuck. Yes, dating myself but it's just the sweetest song.

I wonder which words torture him and he can't say out loud? Is it I love you? That's sad to me. If you love someone and they love you, they are the sweetest words to hear.

One of my favorites on this album. I just love it.
