Photograph

A long breath
He lays his head upon her chest
As they face the night

A long time
Since they were 23 and wild
So much has changed

He cries
In a photograph I still see her laugh
Wish I’ll see it once more
Time’s unkind to us gifts of bones and dust
So much left to be told

Breathe for me my darling
Just breath for me my sweet angel
Breathe for me my darling
Just breathe for me

She needs time
She’s known him most of her whole life
Now he fades away

And these lights
Have grayed the iris in his eyes
They’re not the same

She says
In all honesty if it’s meant to be
Then we need to let go
In an hourglass sand will never last
We keep wishing for more

Breathe for me my darling
Just breath for me my sweet angel
Breathe for me my darling
Just breathe for me

Stay tonight don’t fall behind
Hold on for dear life

In a photograph I can see them laugh
Can you see it
Do you see it
