I've fallen in love with a photograph
A moment of youth that I can't get back
The days when you're here it returns again
Emotions that feed on me everyday

And every night I watch it fading
It's safer just to write my whole life down
With every breath the words betray me
It's easier to face the truth

I've taken a vow that I'll make it up
I'll dig in the past and I'll rake it up
Making amends to the friends I miss
Breaking the mould that I'm frozen in

And everyday I know I'm lazy
It's easier to let the good times pass
And now it seems the memory's hazy
It's time for me to face the past

We tell them lies, we do sometimes
We live and die for friends like these
When all is said
We turn instead
And give our lives for what's beneath

And we do sometimes

I'd be a fool to slide again
I'll be like you and try again

I've fallen in love with a photograph
A moment of proof that can't love me back
The way that it cuts at me everyday
The images mock me a melt away

And everyday I feel it clearly
It's easy just to save the worst until last
And maybe I could see it really
It's painful what we do

We tell them lies, we do sometimes
We live and die for friends like these
When all is said
We turn instead
And give our lives for what's beneath

And we do sometimes

We live and die for friends like these
And we do sometimes
