8 x 10
8 x 10
Sepia photograph is all I have left
Made to pretend, had to laugh
infatuation I guess
and though we'll never meet this side of heaven
your smile will always grace this lovely face
in this old 8 x 10

Your just an old photograph
in a time long past
a starlet in an old movie still
and you've long since past away
and yet today I love you still and I guess I always will
it's no sin
it's just an old 8 x 10

8 x 10
these four walls are closing in
locked away for all these years
without a friend
but I got this old 8 x 10
it's all that I possess
and I can still pretend you'll be waiting for me then
and then I realize
it's just an old 8 x 10
