Poppe, Maddie - Postcard From Me Lyrics




Wish I could write a postcard to my younger self
And tell you that I'm happy and that I'm doing well
That here I am in New York playing shows back to back
There's no getting used to that

If I could
I'd tell you about the heat when the spotlights on
I'd tell you how it sounds when they all applaud

But I can't write it all down, fit it all on a postcard
White space runnin' right out, I'm not even halfway so far
I'd say you wouldn't believe the people you'll meet, the places you'll go in your wildest dreams
You'll have to wait and see
Cause I can't fit it on a postcard from me

Met a boy in LA, right now we're only friends
But he's what you've always wanted and you're gonna fall for him
He dresses like a cowboy, he might not be your type
But he's nothing like those other guys

If I could
I'd tell you how we kissed in a hotel room
And I'd tell you how it feels when he looks at you

But I can't write it all down, fit it all on a postcard
White space runnin' right out, I'm not even halfway so far
I'd say you wouldn't believe the people you'll meet, the places you'll go in your wildest dreams
You'll have to wait and see
Cause I can't fit it on a postcard from me

I'm back here in my hometown, how long have I been gone
The boy who was too good for me is still out mowin' the lawn
Walkin' round my old house that I couldn't wait to leave
Well now it means so much to me

I can't write it all down, fit it all on a postcard
White space runnin' right out, I'm not even halfway so far
I'd say you wouldn't believe the people you'll meet, the places you'll go in your wildest dreams
You'll have to wait and see
Cause I can't fit it on a postcard from me
No I can't fit it on a postcard from me

  16. Reilly Steinhour

    This album is a 'whirlwind' of amazing songs

  17. Stellar Chaos

    This would be a good lyrics video with some cool travel shots, colorful stamps and postcard graphics faded over the video and pictures in different frames and sizes.

  18. Raj k

    Delainey Rice-Bley

  27. J Williams

    Love the personal references on this one, and how it’s broken down into the three parts. Feels like I’m reading her diary.

  28. Rayce Kendrick

  31. Mr Cat Man

    Has she made a soundtrack for a Disney movie yet?

    All The Young Artists

    Mr Cat Man I don’t thinks so but she did the Bare Necessities from the Jungle Book on American Idol

  32. DA12KKnight007 Christopher Grimelli

    I've mowed one time since 2015...

  33. Travis of Bickley

    A postcard from me.
    I predicted from your first audtion last year that you would win AI.
    YOU DID!
    I love you.

  34. Paiger Gerhart

    Maddie writes and sings the best songs. I just don't see her with Caleb. I know she will grow up and move on. First loves are that first loves.

    Camron Bvb

    Paiger Boehm Maddie and Caleb are very happy together. I don’t think this is either first love.I love seeing them together and seem so happy

    billa5968

    Why would she move on from someone who obviously loves her in every situation.

    J Williams

    Listen to her new song “Not Losing You”! She knows what an absolute gem Caleb is. They are 20 and 21, not teenagers. Many people meet their significant others during the “college aged years” which they are. I see them lasting since they met and bonded before fame. They seem to have a strong friendship, as well as much love for each other.

  35. Don Schutte

    Another Maddie original! So good... So you!

  36. Leen Ardenio

    ❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤👐

  37. Bob Allison

    Maddie, Maddie, Maddie. Listen to Papa bear. You have it. You tell the stories perfectly. Please stay you.

  38. Angelica Howell Music

    That first person who disliked this music doesn’t know real music at all. Lol

  39. butterfly girl

    So Awesome, love, love it😍

  40. Karan Shukla

    Not a single bad song in the whole album, wow.

  41. Lily Shemereko

  42. joselyn lee
