Old Photograph

 

I know I shouldn't have it

And I probably oughta let it go

With the rest..the day you left

On that long ago

 

My Mary wouldn't understand 

The way I keep you near to me

For those times when I have to make you mine

Oh but anyway..

 

            It's just an old photograph of you

            Echos of a love that we once knew

            I know you're gone

            And I'm still holdin' on

            To this old photograph of you

 

This world that swirls around me

Is not half as real as my dreams

Where you run and where you play

And where you still love me

 

Now there will be other summers

And maybe there will be another one

But there'll never be

Another you and me

And that's why I hold on

To this...

 

(Repeat Chorus)

 

                        You know I would change the ending

                        Baby if I could

                        So I guess it's best to believe

                        It all turns out like it should

 

            Still this old photograph of you

            Echos of a love that we once knew

            And you're not really gone

            As long as I hold on

            To this old photograph of you

 

            No you're not really gone

            As long as I hold on

            To this old photograph of you
