Singalong! Such Great Heights by The Postal Service

I love this song! Especially this, the Postal Service original. No offence to Iron and Wine, your cover is great and all, but it's just so freaking sad and the song really isn't sad!  It's probably one of the sweetest, funnest, cutest love songs out there.  I love how it encapsulates that joyful infatuation when little things (like freckles) are signs of how "meant to be" you are and you feel like you're just a bit elevated all the time because you are so great together.


SUCH GREAT HEIGHTS
The Postal Service

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

And true, it may seem like a stretch,
But its 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

And 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...
