PAINT A PICTURE

I want to paint a picture for you 
To store within your heart 
Something that sings, lightens your dreams 
When your world's falling apart 

I want to make your smile come home 
Bond with your trembling lips 
The ones you love, you're thinking of
Right here at your fingertips
This is what I really want to do...
Paint a picture for you

~~~*Chorus*~~~
Close your eyes, go ahead and cry
Don't fight the pain of loss
Say what you mean, go on and scream
We all know what it's cost...
Now...
Let yourself see a moment 
Laughing with the one you loved
Breathe it in...
Soak it up...
There's your picture
~~*~~

I want to paint a picture for you 
To overshadow grief
Highlight the times, when their life shined
Planting magic true and deep

I want to frame what you remember
The magic is still there
It helps you keep, sweet memories
For when your heart needs repair

~~~*Lyrical Bridge*~~~
Can you see the picture
Their hand holding yours
Can you hear the memories
The laughter you have stored
Now, come on, smile for me....
And set that laughter free...

~~~*Chorus*~~~
Close your eyes, go ahead and cry
Don't fight the pain of loss
Say what you mean, go on and scream
We all know what it's cost...
Now...
Let yourself see a moment 
Laughing with the one you loved
Breathe it in...
Soak it up...
There's your picture
~~*~~
