Your picture is still
On my wall, on my wall
The colors are bright
Bright as ever

The red is strong, the blue is pure
Some things last a long time
Some things last a long time

Your picture is still
On my wall, on my wall
I think about you
Often, often

I won't forget all the things we did
Some things last a long time
Some things last a long time

It's funny, but it's true
And it's true, but it's not funny

Time comes and goes, but all the while
I still think of you
Some things last a long time

Your picture is still
On my wall, on my wall
The colors are bright
Bright as ever

The things we did, I can't forget
Some things last a lifetime
Some things last a lifetime
Some things last a lifetime

    General CommentI love this, this is the main theme used in the Daniel Johnston film. The piano is simple but beautiful and I love the words to this

    'time comes and goes
    all the while
    I still think of you
    some things last a long time'

    I love the weird little noises in the background as well and the haunting female vocal sound near the end.
