I pull down these walls that keep me confined
In a helpless attempt to find a reason for living
I tear through these albums and love letters too
All of them look like portraits of you

Caught up and drowning in the turmoil
Sweating the life out and forced still to toil
Stuck in a spider web made from the finest gold
Living off the things I have really does get old

Portraits of you
Portraits of you
I find hope in the strangest places
In portraits of you
Portraits of you
Can you find hope in them too?

Finding hotels to be homier then you would think
Now I’m always smoking and I always have too much to drink
Sorry I have to be away for so long
In our time apart, search for a place to belong

Watch these barricades of steel cave in
Watch the unsinkable ship hit the bottom
Though I can’t see, I’m far from blind
As your good intensions ricochet in you’re head, hear this

Portraits of you
Portraits of you
Give meanings to the meaningless things I do
Portraits of you
I find trust in the strangest places
In portraits of you
Can you find trust in them too?

You gave me your burden and I walked a mile
Though it weighed me down, I got further then you
And I sold you my story, and you listened so well
When I’m hopeless; turn to portraits of you

Portraits of you…
Portraits of you…
Find hope in me too…
Hope that is so overdue

My bravery is just my fear that lingers for a while
I need someone to believe in
I need someone to believe in me
Can you believe in me?
Like I believe in you?

Portraits of you…
Portraits of you…
