I have a picture
It's taken with looks
It won't tell a story
But I'm glad I forgot everything that you say

I choose the colors
And reword the lines
Now somebody's second heart
Ain't the first of mine

Consider the rain now
Out in the cold
Maybe I love you
But our dreams grow old

Outbid my fortune
Out to just win
Tell me that summer
Is coming on in

I got my wallet
Been shot from the start
Feel shot when I'm feeling drained
But we all know how to smile when we're falling apart

You choose the colours now
Let's play with the rest
I never believe at all
But some of us sometimes, are just thrilled, by meeting the blessed

Consider the rain now
Out in the cold
Maybe I love you
But our dreams grow old

Outbid my fortune
Out to just win
Tell me that summer
Is coming on in

I have the oath ring, somebody said
Makes like a twinge running straight through my head
Maybe this fortune is not what it seems
Some of us pin, some of us pin time on our dreams

And saved from the talk shifts
Went straight to your goal
Straight backed and straight laced
Well, you never really
Do you ever really know?

I check on the same day
I checked out the view
I checked all the soft land
Well, it comes so easy from you

Consider the rain now
Out in the cold
Maybe I love you
But our dreams grow old

Outbid my fortune
Out to just win
Tell me that summer
Is coming on in
