A Postcard To Nina

	  		 

Intro: D Em Em7 D Em Em7 D Em Em7 F#m F#m7 Em Em7 

D                 Em        Em7 
Nina I can be your boyfriend 
D                         Em         Em7 
so you can stay with your girlfriend 
D                          Em 
Your father is a sweet old man 
                   Em7 
but it is hard for him to understand 
F#m      F#m7          Em        Em7 
that you wanna love a woman 

Nina I can be your boyfriend 
if it puts an end to all this nonsens 
First time I see you in Berlin 
And you don't tell me anyting 
Until outside your dad's apartment 

D 
Oh God, Jesus Christ 
Em                Em7 
I try to focus on your eyes 
D 
we're having dinner with your family now 
Em                         Em7 
keep a steady look at your left eyebrow 
D 
If it's raised, it means yes, 
Em                   Em7 
If it's not it means take a guess 
D 
Hey! You! Stop kicking my legs 
Em                 Em7 
I'm doing my best, can you pass the eggs 

Your father puts on my record 
he says: so tell me how you met her 
I get embarrassed and change the subject 
and put my hand on some metal object 
He laughs and says that's a lie detector 

He takes out the booklet and starts reading 
So I heard you're moving out next season 
I say: Yeah, New York is nice that time of year 
Almost as green as it is here 
He says: I thought you were moving to Sweden? 

Oh God, what have I done? 
I came to Berlin to have some fun 
Then it turned into Buffalo '66 
on your fathers wall a big crucifix 
guess thats why he wont let u go 
his catholic heart is big and slow 
you know I'll do anything for love 
but Nina what were you thinking of? 

But Nina I can be your boyfriend 
So you can stay with your girlfriend 
Your father is mailing me all the time 
He says he just wants to say hi 
I send back "out of office, auto-replies" 

Nina I just want to check in 
'cause I think about you every second 
So I send you this postcard just to say 
Don't let anyone stand in your way 
Yours truly, Jens Lekman 

Don't let anyone stand in your way 
Don't let anyone stand in your way 
Don't let anyone stand in your way 
Don't let anyone stand in your way
