Picture II

Just when the colors
Had faded away
The light has returned and
You stepped out the frame
The starlight is shining
But everything’s changed
When I look at you though
I still feel the same
I feel like your smile
Makes me feel like a child
Happy and free
I am safe for awhile
But I am not ten
As we begin again
I stand at the edge
But I cannot fall in

You’re just like a picture
I can reach out and touch
But I can’t contain you
It’s really too much
What I would give to love you
And here we are again
A new life begins
Will it last till the end?

I capture each moment
But still can’t recall
The pieces of us break on
The past as we fall
And once I’ve forgotten
You manage to remind me
That I can’t escape all
That I’ve put behind me
So are we in love
Or are you just a friend?
That’s not what we promised
I can’t understand
The deeper the love is
The deeper the pain
I’m twice as much broken
From bearing the strain

You’re just like a picture
I can reach out and touch
But I can’t contain you
It’s really too much
What I would give to love you
And here we are again
A new life begins
Will it last till the end?

I hold you
I’ve told you
I love you so much
Hold onto hope
You will notice my touch
The yearning
And burning
That churns in my soul
I’m still so afraid you
Will never be whole

It feels so unreal though
It isn’t a dream
The two of us through this
Operatic scene
But under the wonder
I still have to know
Do you feel unwanted,
That you’ll have to go?

You’re just like a picture
I can’t afford to lose
I cannot find one more copy of you
What I would give to love you
The way that you need
I haven’t given up
Will you give up on me?
What do you want me to be?
