about

Trevor wrote this song before he left the band, with Rock adding a few lines in parts where he use to mumble ;) So while we can't say for sure what this was written about, this is Rock's take...

Picture Frame tells the story of a dreamer, the story of a girl you once knew but you we're never meant to know forever. The gray times mentioned here are not down times but rather a vague time held in high regard without thought of a future or a demise. By the third verse all that is left is a memory of this person who blew into your life as quickly as she departed. The burning of the picture symbolizes an acceptance of this and an acknowledgement that it's time to move on.

lyrics

Picture Frame
(T. Chesal/R. Johnson)

She builds her life with cards
Swims with no regard
No regard to where this breeze will lead

She paints her life in stars
Never really seemed to be that far
From the life she thought she'd lead

Solo

Still remember times of grey
Drink for times of better days
Better days outnumbered

Does she read between the lines these days
It's hard to say, it's hard to say
Or does she read these lines in her own way
It's hard to say, so hard to say

So lets fill our hands with rain
Washed away the better days
Still frames holding memories

Burned the last remains
Holding tight to a picture frame
A picture frame left empty

Does she read between the lines these days
It's hard to say, it's hard to say
Or does she read these lines in her own way
It's hard to say, so hard to say

Solo

Does she read between the lines these days
It's hard to say, it's hard to say
Or does she read these lines in her own way
It's hard to say, so hard to say
