Painter would you paint my portrait
Paint me wearing the finest clothes in town
Make me look like I'm somebody
Make me a little younger than I am now

Will you please remember me
Remember me this way
Will you please remember me
I want to be remembered this way

Paint me with a happy family
Kids and dogs and babies all around
Paint us on the bank of a river
Put the horses and a house in the background

Will you please remember me
Remember me this way
Will you please remember me
I want to be remembered this way

Make it a work of art
A real sight to see
Make it a work of art
A real masterpiece
Don't forget my dear companion
Put someone who loves me by my side

Will you please remember me
Remember me this way
Will you please remember me
I want to be remembered this way

Painter would you paint my portrait
I want to be remembered this way

    My InterpretationIMO, this is the most poignant song on the album.

    I like the mystery of not being 100% sure if the woman is asking to be remembered how she'd lived, or how she wished she'd lived.
