"Pictures" as written by Martin Rotsey, Peter Gifford, Robert Hirst, James Moginie and Peter Garrett....
When I can't see you
You're always near
Back right pocket
I keep you there
Safely hidden
For all those times
When nothing else at all
Can get me by

Billfold out deep inside
Amongst ID and credit cards
I reach in to pull out
A thousand words of photo art
Wallet-sized, never bent
Or ever torn up in the least
I take good care of you
You mean so much to me

Pictures of you and I
They always make me smile
Even at the worst of moments
They're always what I seek
Whenever I am weak
They keep my head up
And my heart unbroken

Hair is flowing
Eyes and smile
Jump off the paper
And over miles
To bring you to me
Almost for real
No matter where I am
Or how I feel

Billfold out deep inside
Amongst ID and credit cards
I reach in to pull out
A thousand words of photo art
Wallet-sized, never bent
Or ever torn up in the least
I take good care of you
You mean so much to me

Pictures of you and I
They always make me smile
Even at the worst of moments
They're always what I seek
Whenever I am weak
They keep my head up
And my heart unbroken

It's so hard spending time away
Even short hours, much less a day
I might as well tear out my lungs
Because we fit together
Nobody knows me better
Without you I'll come undone
Undone

Pictures of you and I
They always make me smile
Even at the worst of moments
They're always what I seek
Whenever I am weak
They keep my head up
And my heart unbroken

My heart unbroken
