All of this time,
Guess I must have been blind,
Not to see you and me,
We’re picture perfect.

Now baby we’ve been friends,
For such a long, long time.
We’ve been through laughs and we’ve been through cries.
But lately have you seen,
The way my tongue gets tied,
Can hardly speak when I look into your eyes.
It’s because of the way I’m feeling,
It’s something I never dreamed,
And our love has a different meaning.
It took so long to reveal,
But now I know when…

All of this time,
Guess I must have been blind,
Not to see you and me,
We’re picture perfect.
I should be yours, baby,
You should be mine,
Meant to be,
Can’t you see,
We’re picture perfect?

I’ll be yours, be mine,
We’re picture perfect,
Forever picture perfect.

I showed some friends of mine,
My favorite photograph,
You know the one of you and me from way back.
And when I told them all,
That you were not my guy,
They couldn’t see it, couldn’t understand why.
Everyone thinks it’s so romantic,
They say we’re two of a kind.
And the more that I think about it,
The more that I realize what I’ve been missing!

All of this time,
Guess I must have been blind,
Not to see you and me,
We’re picture perfect. (You should be mine)
I should be yours, baby,
You should be mine,
Meant to be,
Can’t you see,
We’re picture perfect?

My heart keeps telling me,
Make up your mind, loves what you need,
You’ve been holding back for so long.
You know it makes good sense,
The best lovers are the best of friends,
I guess that we should have known all along.
Everyone thinks it’s so romantic,
They say we’re two of a kind.
And the more that I think about it,
The more that I realize what I’ve been missing!

All of this time,
Guess I must have been blind,
Not to see you and me,
We’re picture perfect.
I should be yours, baby,
You should be mine, (Oh baby, you should be mine)
Meant to be,
Can’t you see,
We’re picture perfect? (You and me, yeah)

All of this time,
Guess I must have been blind, (All of this time)
Not to see you and me,
We’re picture perfect.
I should be yours, baby, (Won’t you be mine?)
You should be mine, (be mine…)
Meant to be,
Can’t you see,
We’re picture perfect?

I’ll be yours, be mine,
We’re picture perfect,
Forever picture perfect.

    General CommentHow we all wish we had best friends who were right for us. Personally, I would feel sick if I ever fell in love with any of my friends cos I could never look at them that way.
