a failure of a penpal lyrics – flaming june

i know you go out to your postbox every day
and search for the letters that are never there
head and shoulders above the likes of me
don’t waste your time cause i’m not worth saving

i’m too far gone

i’ve kept all of your postcards where they’re safe
they’re of places i’ve never been, i have dreams
your thoughts are kind, it means the world to me
that you’ve kept on writing
you’ve put your hopes in me

i’m too far gone

i’m going down
with this sinking ship
to follow my destiny
i’m going down
