Lyrics - 14 Days

PICTURE


Hang a picture on a wall
And leave it there
For twenty years
Then look at it again
 
The colours once were bright and new
For a while
Clear and true
Then they fade gently away
 
I close my eyes
 
When I was young just a boy
I used to play with toys
Truly fantasise
I miss that sometimes
 
Staying out at my grandfolks house
Playing in the stream
Climbing up the trees
No thoughts of an end
 
I close my eyes
And search for how it really was
 
Watch the colours slowly turning
Take them back to how they used to be
I feel them now slowly moving inside of me
I see them as they were happening
They're close but just not as bright
Let me feel again how they used to be
 
The shapes remain but the colour's changed
The image here
Of when I was there
It's not quite how it was
 
Remember how the water clear
Passed my legs
The cool fresh air
I can feel it
But not from there
 
I close my eyes
And search for how it felt that time
 
 
Just for a little while
Eyes closed
It goes so far then falls apart
How I'd love to feel there again
Feel it true
Bright and new
 
Watch the colours slowly turning
Take me back to how I used to feel
I feel it now slowly moving inside of me
I see things as they were happening
It's close but just not quite right
Let me feel again how I used to be
