"Pictures Of Matchstick Men" as written by and Francis Dominic Nicholas Rossi....
When I look up to the sky
I see your eyes
A funny kind of yellow
Rush home to bed
I soak my head
I see your face underneath my pillow
I wake next morning
I'm still yawning
I see your face looking through my window

Pictures of matchstick men and you
Images of matchstick men and you
All's I ever see is them and you

Windows echo your reflection
When I look in their direction now
There your face is haunting me
Your face just won't leave me alone

Pictures of matchstick men and you
Images of matchstick men and you
All's I ever see is them and you
You're in the sky
You're with the sky
You make men cry
You are, you're in the sky
You're with the sky
You make men cry

Pictures of matchstick men

    General CommentI love love love love love love love love love love love love love and LOVE Camper Van Beethoven! ALWAYS HAVE!
    ALWAYS WILL!!! Somethings will NEVER NEVER NEVER NEVER CHANGE!

    This song is a psychedelic classic by the Status Quo and it is about a guy who TAKES ACID WILLINGLY and has a bad trip.
    He then smothers his girlfriend to death (maybe rapes her first) and ultimately wakes up. When he wakes up he
    realizes what he has done and he feels incredible guilt and is forever haunted by it.

    What a great song!!
