lyrics

these pictures of you
they paint a thousand words
they tell me your life story
stories I’ve never heard

they are the memories
that have joined me in my mind
i feel as though I know the you
you somehow left behind

these pictures you took
I’ve never seen such pretty views
and the ones of you, that look
makes me fall in love with you

Oh just pictures
But snapshots in the past
In a split second
Refracted by the glass

These pictures black and white
Searing with your tempting tones
I can see that you’re not frightened
But restrained by the subtle unknowns

How can these pictures compare
To the true form that is moving
The life that I am sharing
Beyond the frame measured with care

Oh just pictures
But snapshots in the past
They are our memories
That our bodies won’t outlast
