Portraits Of Our Lives

from by Edward A Williams

about

This song is about memories; frozen in time as pictures in your mind.

lyrics

Say it ain't so, mama
The shadow's gone again
To find another roof to share

We weren't good enough
We weren't good enough
But we were all that was there

Photographs of moments gone by
Silently frozen in time
All that remain are portraits of our lives

Thought you should know, papa
I finally made the grade
And, for a moment, you were proud
But I've gotta go, son
Son, I've gotta go
Lost your voice to the clouds

Photographs of moments gone by
Silently frozen in time
All that remain are portraits of our lives

Thought you should know, son
The whispers came again
In the background of a call
What do they say, mama?
What do they say?

Nothing much
How's the weather?
Take good care
Of your betters
Stay in school so you can make it
All the world is for the taking

On and on and on and on
On and on and on and on...

As we grow old, mama
The shadow's gone for good
Distant flashes of a dream
But I'll be okay, mama
Mama, I'm okay
But since you asked
Thought you should know
