Photograph (Remastered Album Version) - Natalie Merchant/R.E.M.

I found this photograph

 

Underneath broken picture glass

 

Tender face of black and white

Beautiful a haunting sight

 

Looked into an angel's smile

Captivated all the while

From her hair

And clothes she wore

I'd have placed her

In between the wars

Was she willing when she sat

And posed a pretty photograph

To save her flowering and fair

For days to come

For days to share

A big smile for the camera

 

How did she know

The moment could

Be lost forever

 

Forever more

 

I found this photograph

 

In stacks between

 

The old joist walls

 

In a place where time is lost

 

Lost behind where all things fall

 

Broken books and calendars

 

Letters script in careful hand

 

The music to a standard tune by

Some forgotten big brass band

From the thresh hold

What's to see

Of our brave new century

 

Television's just a dream

 

Of radio and silver screen

 

A big smile for the camera

 

How did she know

 

The moment could be lost forever

 

Forever more

 

Was her childhood

Filled with rhyme

Or stolen books

Of passion crimes

Was she innocent or blind to the

Cruelty of her time

 

Was she fearful in her day

Was she hopeful did she pray

 

Were there skeletons inside

Family secrets sworn to hide

Did she feel the heat that stirs

 

The fall from grace

Of wayward girls

Was she tempted to pretend

In love and laughter

Until the end
