i just found the frame / where i took your picture away
and in my wallet / like a saint from some other place

that picture repays / my eyes as they glaze
a thousand lashes / from a love long gone away

i'll know that you're gone for good
when the dawn kicks me awake
i'll dress and move on put on what i can take
so take and get on you sweet thing

there's a phone call aimed at me tonight
here it comes, out go my lights
leaves me nowhere far out of sight

now i've got the frame / and some baggage that i claimed
i came home to / a world sadly changed

so i got stoned / until i thought this house was a home
but when i came down / i found myself alone

i'll know that you're gone for good
when the dawn kicks me alive
i know we'll go on somehow we'll both survive
so take and get on you sweet thing

tonight you'll find me / alone and getting high

up we float, down i fly
leave me nowhere, far out of sight
leaves me nowhere, far out of sight

    General Commentthis got me through a really rough breakup, including infidelity and drug abuse. the way out of a harsh relationships, isn't evasion to pills, bottles, etc. i needed to think and songs like this helped me to do that.
