Lyrics

Just take a photograph

What is it that the camera fails to catch

Its lens is solid glass

Its shape correcting what we see

To better catch reality

Its shape correcting what we know

But in our hearts something says it isn't so

Take out a photograph

Does the stillness of the image make you sad?

Press up against the glass

So many things we long to say

But something's always in the way

So many things we long to hear

But never listen to the message never fear

You are no photograph

You cannot freeze the present in the past

This image cannot last

Holding on to what we are

Is just a kind of camera

Holding on to what we know

is painful when the world is saying

let it go
