Picture Frame

Story Behind The Song

This is a song about an ex-girlfriend who, after we had become friends again, pointed out the picture of my (then) current girlfriend in a picture frame that I once had her picture in. She told me I should write a song about my picture frame. I finally did.

Song Length 3:27 Genre Rock - Alternative
Tempo Medium (111 - 130) Lead Vocal Male Vocal
Subject History, Past, Lost Love Language English
Era 2000 and later


Take me out into rain
I'll die to feel anything
To break through the haze
To fill it up again

I know it hurt to see her in your place
My picture frame

Its hovering all around
The edges blurring out
Its distant sound crashing on the sure

Like shutter speed, time and place
My picture frame

There's a sentimental glow
Through the window
Looking back on yesterday
Everything I can't replace
There's a curious unknown
Through the doorway
Framing every entrance to today
To tomorrow

You ask me in
I never wanted anything more this
Its just not worth the risk
Of hurting you again

I know it hurt to see her in your place
Its empty now
My picture frame

I love it from a beginning to the end! Great overall sound scape, song structure and flow. Congrats!
