Pictures of you 
It's just pictures of you, through the bedroom door 
With that sly little grin, says you want it some more 
But there's people around, and they don't look so nice 
Tell me why don't they move, this has happened before 
This has happened before 
It's just pictures of you 
In darkness 

Pictures of you 
I'd been sleeping for hours, 
when you came to my house 
You'd been lost in a crowd, said you had to get out 
You were covered with tears and you said you were sad 
So you wanted to play 
Yes, you wanted to play 
Well you touched me and smiled, as you let yourself go 
Oh, but something was wrong, 'cause your touch was so cold 
Like you'd been in the ground and you asked if you could 
Stay 
And I said no! 
It's just pictures of you 
In darkness 

(Pictures of you) 
In that lovely white dress, oh your skin was so white 
With the moon in your eyes, on that cold winter night 
When your lips were so soft, that I though they would 
Melt, 
And the sound of your breath and the way that you felt 
And I said yes 
And I said yes 
It's just pictures of you with a knife in your hand 
With a rose in your teeth lying nude in the sand 
It's just pictures of you, standing high on a cliff 
With the wind in your hair, and a smile on your lips 
And your eyes were so wild, when you started to laugh 
Blending in with the wind, sounded just like a scream 
Why do pictures of you 
Come to me when I dream 
In darkness
