Pictures of the gone world, memories handed down
Pictures of the gone world, when you and I were not around

Could you ever do it justice?
Could you ever get it right?
These are pictures of the gone world
And they're fading out of sight

They saw rouge and vermillion in walks by the water
They dreamt a beautiful dream, they lost a beautiful thing
You tremble, I kiss you and you whisper softly
"We lose this world too, we could lose this world too."

Pictures of the gone world
Hopes we can't forget
Pictures of the gone world
Before we do something we'll all regret

Will anyone cry for justice?
Will anyone get it right?
These pictures of the gone world
Could be our world tonight

I see fire on the mountain and blood on the water
We dream a beautiful dream, we lose a beautiful thing

I'm making love to you, I'm holding on to you
Lose this world too, we could lose this world too.

Could you ever do it justice? Could you ever get it right?
These pictures of the gone world are fading out of sight
You tremble, I hold you
Now you whisper softly "Show me, show me"

Pictures of the gone world, memories handed down
Pictures of the gone world, will you and I still be around?
Pictures of the gone world, memories handed down
Pictures of the gone world, will you and I still be around?
