A picture of your family when you were only three
A picture of a castle, picture of a beach
Picture on your birthday, picture on your bike
Pictures can be taken of anything you like

Pictures we've collected of our lives
So we can reflect from time to time

A picture of an uncle who died when he was young
A picture of a robot, a picture of your son
Picture of your father when he was only five
That picture made you wish that he was still alive

Pictures we've collected of our lives
So we can reflect from time to time
Pictures of the good times that we've had
Oh, oh, I hope there's more of them than there are bad

Pictures of a party, pictures of a beach
People taking pictures that you'd like to reach
Pictures on vacation, pictures of some pets
People taking pictures of their relatives

Pictures at the office, pictures at the zoo
People always pointing cameras right at you
Pictures of the in-laws, pictures of the ex
Pictures of some people we'd all like to forget

Oh, oh
Oh, oh

A pictures of a mother, a picture of a friend
A picture of a baby bouncing in a crib
Pictures put in boxes, pictures put in books
I put mine in a frame so you can have a look

Pictures we've collected of our lives
So we can reflect from time to time
Pictures of the good times that we've had
Oh, oh, I hope there's more of them than there are bad

Gentlemen take polaroids in leisure suits
Soldiers snapping photos in their combat boots
Tourists from Japan before the handy cam
But they'll kindly offer you a helping hand

Staring at the little kid I used to be
Wonder what that little kid would think of me
In the frame the lines of past and present blur
But I don't want to see those photographs no more

Pictures we've collected of our lives
So we can reflect from time to time
Pictures of the good times that we've had
Oh, oh, I hope there's more of them than there are bad
I hope there's more of them than there are bad
