My Favorite Picture of You

This song is by Guy Clark and appears on the album My Favorite Picture of You (2013).

My favorite picture of you
Is the one where you're staring straight into the lens
Just a polaroid shot someone took on the spot
No beginning, no end
It's just a moment in time you can't have back
You never left but your bags were packed
Just in case

My favorite picture of you
Is bent and it's faded and it's pinned to my wall
You were so angry it's hard to believe we were lovers at all
There's a fire in your eyes, you've got your heart on your sleeve
A curse on your lips but all I can see
Is beautiful

My favorite picture of you
Is the one where your wings are showing
Your arms are crossed and your fists are clenched
Not gone but going
A stand up angel who won't back down
Nobody's fool, nobody's clown
You were smarter than that

My favorite picture of you
Is the one where it hasn't rained yet
As I recall there came a winter squall
And we got soaking wet
A thousand words in the blink of an eye
The camera loves you and so do I
Click

My favorite picture of you
Is the one where you're staring straight into the lens
