Pretty pictures

You said that you saw a future for you and me
That our kids would be as happy as can be
That we would stick it out no matter what would unfold
That is what you said when I needed to believe what I was told

The pictures you’re painting are the prettiest things i’ve seen
My mind is already running and a hiding in the dream
I will always think highly and be fond of the memories we shared
Even if the words don’t exactly do justice to how we faired

Though you were using hollow words to hide what never was true
And all the colours of the rainbows are falling and fading into blue
The future I wanted seemed so close to hand
But I should have known I’d never see that promised land

The pictures you’re painting are the prettiest things i’ve seen
My mind is already running and a hiding in the dream
I will always think highly and be fond of the memories we shared
Even if the words don’t exactly do justice to how we faired

You said that you liked our conversations
You said that you were happy to have me around
It filled me feeling the very highest of highs
But I started to suspect the words were just a sound

The things you’re saying you may not know
the way they fill me with hope
But after a few minutes thinking them over
I am considering reaching for the rope

The pictures you’re painting are the prettiest things I’ve seen
Yet I know too well, the words you use you don’t mean.
Suddenly the highs all drop off to the deepest depth
though I will always love you, I won’t hold my breath .
