Photographs

A love song.

 

 

Lyrics:

 

 

We went to a place, you wanted to go

We struggled on the ice and we shivered in the snow

We walked up to a tower that was high above the town.

We wrote our names in the snow and took a photograph.

 

 

We went to a place, I had been before

Built a castle on the beach, fell asleep down by the shore,

Walked around the walls that wound high around the town

We wrote our names in the sand and took a photograph.

 

In all my life, I’ve never seen eyes so beautiful

In all my life, I’ve never seen eyes so bright

But there’s something about the way that you smile at me

That I can’t seem to get from photographs

 

One day we will go, to a place that we both choose,

You will wear the prettiest dress and I will shine my shoes

We’ll stand in front of everyone and make our true love’s vow

We’ll write our names down in their book

and they’ll take photographs.

 

In all my life, I’ve never seen eyes so beautiful

In all my life, I’ve never seen eyes so bright

But there’s something about the way that you smile at me

That I can’t seem to get from photographs
