"Picture of You" as written by Eliot Peter James and Andy Burrows....
I've got the ocean blue.
I've got a picture of you with green green eyes And a cocaine smile,
And a little worry anymore.

I've got a house in a court.
I've got a car and a door and a big left arm. And a little worry any more,
'Cause I tried, I did.

Sorry, you know I'm sorry
You know I'd give you anything on a dime.
Sorry again, cut your little head.
But sorry don't mean nothin, on a dime
You don't say "I'll wait up" (repeat till end)

    General CommentIt sounds like a song written about a guy who couldn't afford the things a girl wanted during their relationship, but has these things now. Doesn't matter though, she didn't say she'd wait up for it.

    And actually to me, personally, the way these lyrics relate to a relationship I had is unsettling. I bought a coupe when I was with a girl and felt self-conscious about it, not thinking about the future very much (as in maybe we would need something to accommodate a child or what not). I used to joke about the car having just a door. Oh and the girl had cocaine green eyes, I know exactly what yim is describing here.

    General CommentI think it's a great song. It has a very intimate feel to it, like it was recorded at a small venue or something. I love that kind of thing, especially against the backdrop of such an epic arena style band like MMJ.
