About The Way You Look In This Photo
This glow is coming from you in the photo
I'm scared it means you might be dying soon
To see you standing there in deep green meadows
The sun allowed no glowing of the moon
You're glowing like you'll be an angel soon
I'd like to be there when God comes to take you
To make sure pain and suffering are gone
When Time, it comes to tell you what this life was
When life goes running from you to the dawn
When angels all embrace you and you're gone
I'll wrap you oh, so gently in your quilt
And cry for selfish reasons for awhile
And think that you would never want this for me
You always loved to see me with a smile
You say, "I'll see you in a little while."
