Lionsheart – Portrait lyrics

It's not him I must 've made a mistake
He's hardly changed from fourty years ago
A trick of light that made me hesitate
I hear this name, I can't believe it's so
Oh no

Can it be so long, so many days gone by
The hands of time have left their mark on me
But ther he stands a memory from my past
He's been untouched by all the passing years

To stay forever young
For the paint to crack and age
If that were so
I'd give my soul

You turn
When you hear me call your name
Don't you remember me
You've learned
To fear what's in the picture frame
You've cheated destiny

For all this sin, for all this lies and hate
Left not a mark, not a single scar to show
But the portrait changed
It's marked his journey through time
It shows the sun of his eternal shame

To stay forever young
For the paint to crack and age
If that were so
I'd give my soul

You turn
When you hear me call your name
Don't you remember me
You've learned
To fear what's in the picture frame
You've cheated destiny

If I knew just what my hands would create
I wish to god I'd never seen his face
But it's not too late
Am I the one to finally seal his fate
I will take his life

You turn
When you hear me call your name
Don't you remember me
You've learned
To fear what's in the picture frame
You've cheated destiny

But it's not too late
I'll take his life
You can't cheat destiny
I'll take his life... (fade)
