Nothing but a Picture

Devestation in my gut, I can't break this rut.
Nothing but tough, gotta shake the rust.
Before you give up on me, before you see,
I'm not as strong as I pretend to be.
It shouldn't be so hard to be in that frame
if I could step in, it'd never be the same.

You see it's in my blood, I was born to love,
Not to push, and not to shove.
And when I saw you, I was wishin I was with ya
Such a pretty blue, but it's nothin but a pic'cha

Nothing but a photo among the rest,
I'm no good even at my best
to be worthy of that place to stand
to hold it in my hands.
I would always be out of place,
I don't deserve the smile on your face.
not a glance or the slightest taste.

It'd be different if I was different, but I'm not
You don't have to listen, but this is what I got.
Just soulful rhymes I phrase aloud,
but simple phrases don't gather crowds.
If words could make this last forever,
I'd never rest 'til we're together

You know it's in my blood, I was born to love,
Not to push, and not to shove.
And when I held her, I wished I wasn't broken
I was somehow stronger for nothin but a moment.

Nothing but a gently broken truth,
of how much I really have to lose.

Nothing but a picture that could burn,
of that moment I could never earn.
with me standing next to you,
reflecting that pretty blue.
but instead you're there alone,
a lasting moment not my own.

I let myself pretend
it never had to end
but I'm not with her
it's nothing but a picture.

“I firmly believe that any man's finest hour, the greatest fulfillment of all that he holds dear, is the moment when he has worked his heart out in a good cause and lies exhausted on the field of battle - victorious”
