Well know it ain't much
But it's all that i have since she's gone

One black and white mem'ry
Of the only love i've ever known
One moment in time
When we were together
A page from the past
To haunt me forever
A constant reminder that hearts heal much slower than bones

Chorus:
Now my whole world's in one 8x10
With 4 metal walls holding it in
Through one plate glass window
'neath a blanket of dust
Stands an 8x10 picture of us

I wish i'd have told her what i felt inside
Back when her sweet love was growing like wine
I wish she'd come back and love me again
The way that she loved me in that old 8x10

Now the silence i deaf'ning
As the date turns to dark
Her presence gets stronger with each beat of my heart

I pretned that she's here
And we've made a new start
And for a moment
She's back in my arms

(chorus)

There's an 8x10 picture of us
