Song Description

Delores and Joe have a long philosophical conversation on the beach. The ocean and literature become metaphors for their experiences and their hopes for the future.

Story Behind the Song

Fourth song in a song cycle about these two characters and a boy who loses his arm in a turbine engine accident.

Lyrics

Postcard

What?s the mystery? he says
and he points out to the sea on the card
It?s so blue, so deep, so vast
and it scares me a bit?a lot
The forest must have felt like this
to the Puritans in New England
It makes a nice metaphor, she says
for the things we can?t talk about

What do you want with this day?

What?s a good book to read? he says
I?ve got one, no, I?ve got one
It never ends and it repeats itself
and it?s hard?it took me a year or two
I think I?ve read that one, he says
or maybe I?m living it
It?s kind of like the ocean that way
kind of that way, but not in a good way

What do you want with this day?
Do you know what you want with it?
Do you know how you will use it?

What do you want with this day?
Send me a postcard
