A Photograph of You

Please reach to me

As far as your own eyes see

Let down your frown

And bend out so far gracefully

Your smile so bright

Will comfort me throughout the night

 

But pictures are nothing but throwaway faces

And I hold onto yours so tight

A broken down lonely night

 

A photograph of you

Is guiding me into the haze

A photograph of you

Surrounds me throughout all the days

A photograph of you

 

You’ve gone so far

You placed yourself amongst the stars

And I looked down

To see where you turned the ground

How long it takes

To see my heart finally break

 

With no feeling of love that you haven’t taken

And turned into white moonlight

I cry for my own tonight

 

A photograph of you

Is guiding me into the haze

A photograph of you

Surrounds me throughout all the days

A photograph of you

 

There is no more breathing

There is no more poison

There is no more believing

And the only way through is down
