"Photography" as written by and Watts/gryskiewicz/golla/vasoli....
I've never been so happy to see a photograph of me
Then when graced with your company.
You're making a small change to the way
That you wear your heart.
I like it better, I like it, I like it better now

[Chorus]
I'll swing from a streetlight
And sing oh, oh, oh
I'm stuck in the meantime
But we're so, oh close

The sunlight is overwhelming the scene that is
Composed of you and me in our finest moment.
An amazing illusion was made with trick photography
It seems like you're really, you're really,
It feels like you're really here.

[Chorus]

As I'm grilled by a spotlight
I'll sing oh, oh, oh
And the thrill of a good fight
Is we are so, oh close.

    General Commentthis songs really good, it seems a little cliche kind of at first but it grew on me and now it's just really good like i said. I saw them do it at skate and surf this past year and kenny played the piano instead of the guitar at the beginning, good times.

    General Commenti think this is one of the best songs on the album.. maybe even THE best. It is just so different from most of the songs on there.. so much emotion put into it. he basically is just missing someone so much that he can't take it anymore.. it's like she is so close, yet so far.. love it!

    General Commentthis song is so awesum, im an english fan, i think this so is so full of emotion! i think this song is about a girl that has died or moved away, and kenny and her where "So Close" the line "i'm stuck in the meantime" i think means that she has long gone but he is still wondering what to do about it. Also the line "it feels like you're really here" makes me think that she has passed away or moved, i aint sure tho....FCUKing brilliant track tho xXx
