08. Pictures Of The Past

Warren Barfield
by Warren Barfield



 

I think itís time
That I forgive you
Oh, Iíve kept this inside
Long enough
Remember the 5th grade
And all the jokes you made
At my expense
Oh I wanted to trip you in the hall
And watch your books fall ever since
And I canít remember your last name
But your first was Stephen
If you ever hear this song
Do you think we could call it even?

[CHORUS]:
Cause Love doesnít keep a record of wrongs
It lets go, it moves on
Oh cause time goes by so fast
To keep painting pictures of the past
Iíve got one of those brains
That canít remember where I set my keys
Oh but I could recite every hurtful word ever spoken to me
I say I forgive and I try to forget
But itís like getting caught in a rainstorm
And trying not to get wet
Oh and Iíve weathered my share of wrongs
By Godís grace I am slowly drying off
Yeah yeah yeah

[BRIDGE]:
And Iíve carefully compiled
A list of names and faces
And I canpoint out the scars that each one gave me, yeah
And Iíve plotted my revenge fueled by these mental images
But today Iím throwing all my pictures away
Yeah yeah

[CHORUS]:
Love doesnít keep a record of wrongs
It lets go, it moves on
Oh cause time goes by way too fast
To keep painting pictures of the past
Stop painting pictures of the past
Stop painting pictures
Stop painting picturesÖof the past
Yeah, yeah
