Baby Pictures

Baby pictures and your boy
Faded red ribbon on a heart of pure alloy
Drenched in perfume
From the twinkle in your eye
Until you tumble in the tomb
Baby pictures more than I assume

Does she picture me with sighing and fainting
Does she picture me and laugh?
You might say that I am no oil painting
Sometimes I'm merely a faded photograph

You say I'm your one and only
With fondest remembrance
But you only think you know me
By the very slightest of resemblance
Do I really love you without a reason
Driven in and out of my mind
Driven to your knees then

You can picture anything you please
But baby pictures
You can picture anything you please
But baby pictures
You can picture anything you please
But baby pictures
You can picture anything you please
But baby pictures
You can picture anything...
