Lyrics

I took your picture down from off the wall today

After all this time, I don’t know why

Somewhere in my mind, I just crossed a line 

I’m tired, I’m done being the only one

I’m the only one in this twosome

 

But what about the love that lasts forever?

What’m I supposed to do with all of that?

I watch it floating free, a feather on the breeze

Detached from you and me…forever

 

My friend Bonnie said, I can’t make you love me if you don’t

But I cry Why not? Oh, why not?

You used to love me once but now you won’t

Oh why?

 

I tell myself that nothing lasts forever

I tell myself, You’re not the only one

Sometimes two hearts begin to beat together, twins

Then come undone

 

I took your picture down from off the wall today

I know it’s just a picture in a frame

I’ll continue… but I’ll never be the same

 

Oh, what about the love that lasts forever?

What’m I supposed to do with all of that?

Wasn’t love supposed to last forever?

I watch it floating free, a spirit in the trees

Detached from you and me…forever
