I keep your picture by my bed
For when I'm feeling sad, I don't know why I would be
The way your smile looks so real
I feel like I could start to understand your grace

But I, I don't understand why you're not here with me
And I, I don't even wanna know where else you'd be

Cause I have photographs and memories of the times
You weren't on my mind and I was alone
I have poetry and drawings of my life
You weren't on my side and I didn't know
Just what is love

Writing moments on the wall with different colors
Keeps my mind away from missing you
And I can't wait to fall asleep to slip into my dreams
Where we can dance upon a star

And I be as patient as a boy in love could ever be
And I don't feel like I was real until you were a part of me

Cause I have photographs and memories of the times
You weren't on my mind and I, I was alone
And I have poetry and drawings of my life
You weren't on my side and I didn't know
Just what is

I need you back, I need you back, I need you here
I need your smile, I need your eyes, I need you, dear
Every line on your face makes a beautiful maze
For my eyes to trace
Every line on your face makes a beautiful maze
For my eyes to trace

I have photographs and memories of the times
You weren't on my mind and I was alone
