"Carry This Picture" as written by and Christopher Andrew Carrabba....
Carry this picture for luck. Kept in a locket,
Tucked in your collar, close to your chest.
Make it a secret, shown to the closest friends.

And meet me at quarter to seven,
The sun will still shine then, at this time of year.
We'll head to the inlet. And we'll share a bottle there.

And color the coast with your smile
It's the most genuine thing I've ever seen.
I was so lost, but now, I believe.

And follor me south of the big docks, where they tether the boats,
And the rich men revere as so important, they hire our fathers to steer.

And down to the edge of the water,
Where we'll spill our guts,
And we'll name our fears. I'll give you this picture.
Kepp it and don't be scared.

And color the coast with your smile.
It's the most genuine thing I've ever seen.
I was so lost, but now, I believe in the coast,
Your smile is the most genuine thing I've ever seen.
I was so lost, but now, I believe

    General CommentI think this song is really cute.. I really like this part, "...and color the coast with your smile-its the most genuine thing ive ever seen". I have a live version of this song downloaded, and I love how he sings the song so lightly.. it just makes it all the more better. =D

    General CommentI think it's just about his infatuation for a girl... he's falling for her, she's the most beautiful thing in the world to him.

    General CommentI really love this song. It makes me think of a long distance relationship. And i love the lyrics, truly I think Chris uses some of the best wording and his voice carries so much emotion and meaning behind what he sings!
