A Picture of Me (Without You)
Imagine a world where no music was playing
And think of a Church with nobody praying
Have you ever looked up to a sky with no blue?
Then you’ve seen a picture of me without you
Have you walked in a garden where nothing was growing?
Or sit by a river where nothing was flowing
If you’ve seen a red rose unkissed by the dew
The you’ve seen a picture of me without you
Can you picture heaven with no angels singing?
Or a quiet Sunday morning with no church bells ringing
If you’ve watched as a heart of a child breaks in two
Then you’ve seen a picture of me without you.
“Love forever-until we are together again”
