lyrics

I took a photograph
And as soon as i'd taken it the moment had passed
You were smiling then
Pixelated pleasure, perceived through a lens

But now it's cold and it's dark
I'm alone in my chair and it's late
The photograph falls from my hand to the floor
As i sleep once again

And in the photograph
The people are young and the flowers are in bloom
Smiling at me from the past
The photograph makes my memories last

But now it's cold and it's dark
I'm alone in my chair and it's late
The photograph falls from my hand to the floor
As i sleep once again

A frozen moment in time
Sweet taste of the past, preserved just like wine
Nothing's ever the same
Those long distant faces will never be real again

But now it's cold and it's dark
I'm alone in my chair and it's late
The photograph falls from my hand to the floor
As i sleep once again
