I never thought I'd come back around
I never thought I'd see you again
And it took one night when I packed my life
And one to take it out again

I took a look at a photograph
Where we didn't even notice the lens
Something came to life from that 3x5
It was you and me and innocence

This is what I want
This is what I need
This is exactly what I've been waiting for

I set it up in a picture frame
Then I put a nail into the wall
Time has put lines here on my face
But it doesn't matter now at all

It was me and you when we were together
It was me and you when we were apart
It was me and you in my mind and
It was me and you in my heart

It took so long to find it and some they never will
A color print it took time and it held it still.
