Pictures of You
words and Music by Bill Pere
 

I just was not an artist,
Though many times I'd sit at home and
Try to paint a picture of you
I would always blush ,
I was so awkward with a brush
But I didn't care,
Just as long as there was you

But now I can paint such  beautiful pictures of you
Since you've gone away
I couldn't bear the thought  of never seeing you again
Memories of you guide the pen in my hand
And every word you spoke  Guides every perfect stroke
As the colors drip down to form your hair...
The colors drip down to form your hair
And your eyes look so real, I can almost feel
The warmth that I knew when you were there...
That I knew when you were there.


The planets shine so bright
through the misty shrouds of night
I see your face
in those shimmers of light
I never had imagination,
but I find each constellation
Is replaced
by a vision of you..

And now I can paint such beautiful pictures of you
Since you've gone away
I couldn't bear the thought of never seeing you again
Memories of you haunt everything I do
And every word you said forms pictures in my head
And I see you everywhere I go
I see you everywhere I go
Your eyes look so real, I can almost feel
The warmth that I knew when you were there....
That I knew when you were there
