My favorite picture of you
Is the one where you're staring
Straight into the lens
It's just a Polaroid shot
Someone took on the spot
No beginning, no end
Just a moment in time that you can't have back
You never left but your bags were packed
Just in case

My favorite picture of you
Is bent and it's faded
And it's pinned to my wall
Oh, and you were so angry
That it's hard to believe
That we were lovers at all
There's a fire in your eyes, your heart's on your sleeve
A curse on your lips, but all I can see is beautiful

My favorite picture of you
Is the one where
Your wings are showing
And your arms are crossed
And your fists are clenched
Not gone, but going
A stand-up angel who won't back down
Nobody's fool and nobody's clown
You were smarter than that

My favorite picture of you
Is the one where
It hasn't rained yet
And as I recall
There came a winter squall
And we got soaking wet
A thousand words in the blink of an eye
The camera loves you and so do I
Click

My favorite picture of you
Is the one where you're staring
Straight into the lens
