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'm not a very emotional dude, but this song's simplicity and sincerity just hits me hard. The first time I heard it my eyes welled up with tears, something that's never happened to me before. It's a bona-fide jewel. Beach House does a great cover of it too.
