I've been looking so long at these pictures of you
I've been living so long with my pictures of you
Are all I can feel
Remembering you standing quiet in the rain
And we kissed as the sky fell in
How I always held close in your fear
You were bigger and brighter and wider than snow
Screamed at the sky
To let it all go
Remembering you fallen into my arms
You were stone white
Lost in the cold
Remembering you how you used to be
You were angels
Hold for the last time then slip away quietly
But I never see anything
If only I'd thought of the right words
If only I'd thought of the right words
All my pictures of you
Looking so long at these pictures of you
Looking so long for the words to be true
My pictures of you
There was nothing in the world
Than to feel you deep in my heart
That I ever wanted more
All my pictures of you
