As still as a photograph -Cacai Velasquez

I used to say that I'd readily swim
The seven seas for you
Now, I can't reach the shore
I used to say that only I held the key to your heart
Now, I can't find the door
Slowly fading like a painting on your wall
Yet as clear as the sound of your laugh
Forever captured in my mind you'll remain
As still as a photograph
My shoes are now worn from walking too far
Still farther I go,
My hands are so tired from hiding the scar
Still I refuse to show
And though I know that it's wrong,
You're still my concern
Like a thorn in my side,
It's hard to be strong
When you've nowhere to turn
When you've nowhere to hide
Slowly fading like a painting on your wall
Yet as clear as the sound of your laugh
Forever captured in my mind you'll remain
As still as a photograph
And though the wound burns, it's mine to keep
To hold in my arms, And to sing me to sleep,
For it's all that I have, I now realize,
The memory lives when reality dies
When reality dies
Slowly fading like a painting on your wall
Yet as clear as the sound of your laugh
Forever captured in my mind you'll remain
As still as a photograph
