In a windowed room,
where things had gone astray,
I aimed my uncovered lens.
And captured your stillness,
in a frame.
And you'll never see your face again.

I'll add the caption.
I'll have you say things you would not.
I'll call you captive.
I will put words into your mouth.
Smile, smile, it's a picture.
I don't care if it's awful.
Smile, smile, it's a picture.
It just lasts forever.

In a borrowed book,
I won't keep you in a frame.
‘Til the day when mistake leads you awry.
And some brand new Dan finds your orphaned face,
and it's all he'll ever know you by.
