Pictures Of You Lyrics

Artist: The Cure
Album: Disintegration

I've been looking so long at these pictures of you
That I almost believe that they're real
I've been living so long with my pictures of you
That I almost believe that the pictures are
All I can feel

You standing quiet in the rain
As I ran to your heart to be near
And we kissed as the sky fell in
Holding you close
How I always held close in your fear
You running soft through the night
You were bigger and brighter and wider than snow
And screamed at the make-believe
Screamed at the sky
And you finally found all your courage
To let it all go

You fallen into my arms
Crying for the death of your heart
You were stone white
So delicate
Lost in the cold
You were always so lost in the dark
You how you used to be
Slow drowned
You were angels
So much more than everything
Hold for the last time then slip away quietly
Open my eyes
But I never see anything

If only I'd thought of the right words
I could have held on to your heart
If only I'd thought of the right words
I wouldn't be breaking apart
All my pictures of you

Looking so long at these pictures of you
But I never hold on to your heart
Looking so long for the words to be true
But always just breaking apart
My pictures of you

There was nothing in the world
That I ever wanted more
Than to feel you deep in my heart
There was nothing in the world
That I ever wanted more
Than to never feel the breaking apart
All my pictures of you

what is the true message of this song anyway? i understand that the person that he loves killed herself or himself? is this a sad song for someone losing the love of their life to suicide?
by Gina the Unicorn on 11/3/2008 5:49pm

I love the lyrics in this song. I really didn't pay attention to the song before until I read the lyrics. This is truly a beautiful heartfelt song.

this is one of my fav songs and i listen to it every night and everyday cause it reminds me about my mate that just died RIP LOGAN
by PJ-wade on 11/18/2011 2:51pm
No. It's "WIDER" than snow.
Later in the song, she is referred to as "stone white".

It's a lost live story (a gorgeous one st that), however it is abundantly apparent that he could have saved the relationship (whether one believes that she died, or the more likely case that she just left).

Lovers of this song should also check out "Cut Here".
