"My Favorite Picture of You" as written by Guy Clark and Gordie Sampson....
My favorite picture of you
Is the one where you're staring
Straight into the lens

It's just a polaroid shot
Someone took on the spot
No beginning no end

It's just a moment in time
You can't have back
You never left but your bags were packed
Just in case

My favorite picture of you
Is bent and faded
And it's pinned to my wall

Oh and you were so angry
It's hard to believe
We were lovers at all

There's a fire in your eyes
You've got your heart on your sleeve
A curse on your lips but all I can see
Is beautiful

My favorite picture of you
Is the one where
Your wings are showing

Oh and your arms are crossed
Your fists are clenched
Not gone but going

Just a stand up angel
Who won't back down
Nobody's fool, nobody's clown
You were smarter than that

My favorite picture of you
Is the one where
It hasn't rained yet

Oh and as I recall
Came a winter squall
And we got soaking wet

It's a thousand words
In the blink of an eye
The camera loves you and so do I
Click

My favorite picture of you
Is the one where you're staring
Straight into the lens

    General Commentwhen a picture can bring back a flood of emotions that it hurts just to look at it... and yet, it's the only thing you've got left and don't want to put it away.
