"Pictures of You" as written by and L. Tolhurst S. Gallup....
I've been looking so long at these pictures of you
That i almost believed that they're real
I've been living so long with my pictures of you
That i almost believed that the pictures are all i can feel

Remembering you
Standing quiet in the rain
As i ran to your heart to be near
And we kissed as the sky fell in
Holding you close
How i always held close in your fear

Remembering you
But in a soft through the night
You were bigger
And brighter
And whiter than snow
Spring at the make believe
Spring at the sky
And you finally found all your courage to let it all go

Remember you
Falling into my arms
Crying for the death of your heart
You were stone white
So delicate
Lost in the cold
You were always so lost in the dark

Remembering you
How you used to be
So drown
You were angels
So much more than everything
Hold for the last time
Then slip away
Quietly
Open my eyes but i never see anything

If only i thought of the right words
I could've held onto your heart
If only i thought of the right words
I wouldn't be breaking apart

All my pictures of you

Looking so long at these pictures of you
I never hold onto your heart
Looking for the words to be true
But always just breaking apart

My pictures of you

There is nothing in the world
That i ever wanted more
Than to feel you deep in my heart
There was nothing in the world
That i ever wanted more
Than to never feel the breaking apart

All my pictures of you

    General CommentThis is one of the most beautiful songs I've ever heard; Lit blows the Cure out of the water on this one!! There is nothing more agonizing, nothing more sweet, than the memory of a tragic love lost long ago...

    General CommentYou can't do a cover of The Cure's that is better than The Cure. This isn't so bad, but Robert Smith is God.

    General CommentI love this live. And on the stereo. If I had to pick a favorite version, it would be this one, which is strange for me, because I really don't tend to like a lot of remakes.
