Song Meaning
Verse 1
I don't remember receiving your postcard
I never got much post so it shouldn't have been too hard
You were on holiday with your school in some French town
And when you were away I took Debbie to the crown
Verse 2
I feel as though the past is closing in on me
I found a photograph of me and Kimberly
Verse 3
I found your postcard and I put it on the wall
I found your picture, you know tears were bound to fall
I didn't write your songs when we were going out
So why should I start now, you are not about
Verse 4
I feel as though the past in closing in on me
I found a photograph of me and Kimberly
Verse 5
We hardly used to even drink, we didn't smoke
We'd walk home from the pub 'cause we were always broke
So when your mother called and said that you were dead
Thought she's talking of another Kim instead
Verse 6
I feel as though the past is closing in on me
I found a photograph of me and Kimberly
Verse 7
She said it seemed you accidentally overdosed
It was so long since I talked to her and once we were so close
And I am left with all these things I didn't say
And a picture of you in my arms, the day you went away
Verse 8
I feel as though the past is closing in on me
I found a photograph of me and Kimberly
Verse 9
I feel as though the past is closing in on me
I found a photograph of me and Kimberly
Verse 10
