Lyrics

You were the one,
You were my everything.
Never apart,
No one in-between.
Then one day,
When you went your own way,
You felt justified,
And I was mortified.
But today...

You are just a picture
And a thousand memories
Is all I take with me
'Cuz your smile
Is just too much to see.
You're just a thousand memories.

Fantasies, broken dreams,
Reveries, sordid histories.
Following my heart,
Laden with reaction
Without calibration or design.
Committed to a trial,
A life of understanding.
Can't somebody show a sign to you
For me to see if you only knew
That you were the one...

You were the one,
You were my everything.
Never apart,
No one in-between.
Then one day,
When you went your own way,
You felt justified,
And I was mortified.
But today...

You are just a picture
And a thousand memories
Is all I take with me
'Cuz a picture is worth
One thousand memories.
