*^i’ve been looking so long at these pictures of you
that i almost believe that they’re real
i’ve been living so long with my pictures of you
that i almost believe that the pictures are
all i can feel

remembering you standing quiet in the rain
as i ran to your heart to be near
and we kissed as the sky fell in
holding you close
how i always held close in your fear
remembering you running soft through the night
you were bigger and brighter and whiter than snow
and screamed at the make-believe
screamed at the sky
and you finally found all your courage to let it all go

remembering you fallen into my arms
crying for the death of your heart
you were stone white so delicate
lost in the cold
you were always so lost in the dark
remembering you how you used to be
slow drowned
you were angels
so much more than everything
hold for the last time then slip away quietly
open my eyes
but i never see anything

if only i’d thought of the right words
i could have held on to your heart
if only i’d thought of the right words
i wouldn’t be breaking apart
all my pictures of you

looking so long at these pictures of you
but i never hold on to your heart
looking so long for the words to be true
but always just breaking apart
my pictures of you

there was nothing in the world
that i ever wanted more
than to feel you deep in my heart
there was nothing in the world
that i ever wanted more
than to never feel the breaking apart
all my pictures of you^*

Each One Photo from a set of three which explores my feelings and thoughts and emotions at that particular time of my life. Each separate photo has particular meaning to me. All three Photos were used for the final collage of Pictures Of You resulting in a general expression of Me

    First I was drawn by the picture, and then those lyrics are heart-breakingly beautiful.

    You’re such a great personality on RB Craig, it’s really great to have you here.
