lyrics

I been hidin' in the brambles and thorns just to get a picture of my love
but when the rattle of that deadbolt sounds, I'll be shootin' straight and standin' up
it's getting cold, and tomorrow she may find me laid out like a frozen jerk
but I been waitin' on the twilight sun to lay down and do its work

I want the light on her eyes. I want the blaze of an unsuspecting smile
here she comes, here she comes with a clickle and a hum
I got you girl

when you walked out I did a scramble through the house for a portrait that I could keep
left without hope I could hold your image close as I cry myself to sleep
but I took for granted every pretty chance I had every photo-milesecond of time
now I've been reduced to a crouching paparazzo with a beer bottle full of wine

I got a focus and a frame
you got a way to make it shine

'cause a picture ain't nothin' but a little ol' digital angel
telling stories of the world we used to live in
I'll be lookin' in on that picture when I'm feelin' down
and you'll always be smiling, and you'll always be around

there's another man because there's always another man
I seen him around, and I can say I'm not impressed
but surely he would not begrudge an ex-gentleman his forlorn request
I'm gonna run like hell when this is done clutching my only image of you
and he may work out or he may wash out
but your heart tell you it's true

that he may have you
but he don't get you like I do

and a picture ain't nothin' but a little ol' digital angel
telling stories of the world we used to live in
I'll be lookin' in on that picture when I'm feelin' down
and you'll always be smiling, and you'll always be around

and a picture ain't nothin' but a blue indication
of the way that you felt before the bad vibrations
if a picture's got a little ol' life of its own
you can live there in your memories and you'll never be alone
