WRITTEN BY STEPHEN DUFFY
(originally released on "I love my friends" by Stephen Duffy)

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 while you were away
I took Debbie to the crown

I feel as though all the past is closing in on me
I found a photograph
Of me and Kimberley

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

I feel as though all the past in closing in on me
I found a photograph
Of me and Kimberley

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
I thought she's talking of
Another Kim instead

I feel as though all the past is closing in on me
I found a photograph
Of me and Kimberley

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

I feel as though all the past is closing in on me
I found a photograph
Of me and Kimberley
I feel as though all the past is closing in on me
I found a photograph
Of me and Kimberley
