Bad Self Portraits
by Lake Street Dive



I bought this camera
to take pictures of my love
Now that he's gone
I don't have anybody to take pictures of
A lonesome highway
is a pretty good subject
I'm gonna make myself make use of this thing

I'm taking landscapes
I'm taking still lifes
I'm taking bad self portraits
of a lonely woman

I've spent my life
so lost on lovin'
I could have been a painter or a president
But after 25 years
I should be good at something
Gone are the days of me being so reticent

I'm taking night classes
I'm making sculptures
I'm painting bad self portraits
of a lonely woman

I bought this camera
to take pictures of my love
Now that he's gone
I don't know what to do with this stuff, well
I don't care about the time or money
I just never thought that I'd be
through with this love

Stuck taking landscapes
Stuck making still lifes
Stuck making sculptures
I'm out here taking bad self portraits
of a lonely woman
Bad self portraits of a lonely girl
Sad self portraits of a lonely woman
