lyrics

What do you remember of this photograph?
Do you see pictures when you think of my name?

Oddly warm and windy
Orange city glow
What the weather forebode
You still didn't know

No purple rained from the sky
Like Prince himself was crying out
No Sign 'O' The Times

But there was a feeling
Feeling of an end
You, possessed in silence
Smokes lit in your hands

Is this sounding right?
The details of that fateful night
The stories of your life
Help me out

What will be recalled through the years?
What has been lost and what shall remain?
People - money - prophecy - romance - intrigue -
Life in the telling is gone and gained

Your living room is in preservation
While the outer walls fall to weather's predations

Your pool just gathers mold
There's rings in all the toilet bowls
Your widower's household
Like the stories you never told

What will be recalled through the years?
What has been lost and what shall remain?
People - money - prophecy - romance - intrigue -
Tell me your stories and live again

What do you remember of this photograph?
Do you see pictures when you think of my name?
And what did you think you would say to me
And who did you think your addressee would be
When you foresaw to relate
Of a time you'd hoped would pass, or stay?
Were you compelled by worldly vision?
Did you fear for your life?
And being here to offer these answers
Shall you ask me to persevere alike?
