  • I don't believe in absolutes anymore
    I'm quite prepared to admit I was wrong
    This life it sucks your principles away
    You have to fight against it every single day

    These are the postcards from a young man
    They may never be written or posted again
    These are the postcards from a young man
    They may never be written or posted again

    It is like so many other things
    As distant as your former sins
    So sad and lonely and so derelict
    As the optimism that we once shared

    These are the postcards from a young man
    They may never be written or posted again
    These are the postcards from a young man
    They may never be written or posted again

    I'll send you postcards every single day
    Just to prove I still exist
    This world will not impose its will
    I will not give up and I will not give in
    And I will not give up and I will not give in

    I won't betray your confidence
    I won't pretend my way was lost
    This world will not impose its will
    I will not give up and I will not give in Writer/s: JAMES BRADFIELD, NICHOLAS JONES, SEAN MOORE
