lyrics

(lyrics)

I paint a picture of myself
Until I look like someone else
Now don’t try to find me
Don’t try and remind me
Of some way I ought to be
Of things that I should have
Should have seen comin'

I paint a picture of myself
Flattering portrait on your shelf
Don’t want you to worry
Won’t ever be sorry
Make things nice as can be
Live life so easily

In love
In love...

I paint this picture by myself
Never thought to ask for any help
I suppose you will blame me
But who would not do the same things
Life comes down hard and brings
Rain clouds over everything
Life comes down hard and brings
Rain clouds over everything
Over everything, over everything
Life comes down hard and brings
Rain clouds over everything

I paint a picture of my life
And everything turns out just right
