"Photograph" as written by Jeremy Dawson and John Bourke....
All the stars watch over you
Night and day
When you can't stop turning
Where'd you go, mysterious?
So ashamed...
You've lost the way again

[Chorus:]
When did we all start
Living a world in a photograph?
Where I'll find you
Waiting for something

Hiding in places the shapes of the faces
In photographs
When the dreams are done
Look how the tears run...
Through my eyes

You danced upon the mirror glass
On the floor...
When the sky was falling
Where'd you go, my curious?
Insecure....
You've lost my way again

I tried so hard
To reflect their hearts
And show them that I'm stronger
And now I run...

Once went through my head
Once was in my head
I'm waiting
I'm waiting to go again
Once went through my head
What once was in my head
Is through my eyes

    General Comment:] it's about being stuck in a picture perfect world that's really just lights and makeup, hiding the reality of it all.

    General CommentAustyn-Yes. there are infact 2 versions.

    Shiny Toy Guns have released We Are Pilots 3 times...

    versions 2.0 & 3.0 contain remixes of older songs.

    The lyrics are the same for the seven minute one for the most part...just the instrumental is different.
