Eleventeen – Portrait Of A Man lyrics

Paint a picture of me and hang it in your fireplace
The flames will consume my face
Now watch me burn

Choke down that fresh-lit match with sympathy
Wear a different face with me
Then we can pretend that we can get back up again

Save your self
Save your self
Save your self from me

And say anything just make it brave
Cause if we don抰 act now we can never be the same as we use to be
I抣l say anything just to make you brave
Cause if we don抰 act now we can never be the same as we use to be

I probably look a little different when I抦 broken I hide this well
I'm sure that some can tell
So I'll keep on running with this limp you will never see
I built this noose with shaky hands and I will wear it without regret
Just don抰 forget the love that I gave with this thorn buried deep in me

He built this noose you bet he抯 going to use it
Now I can see our love is changing
I can see that it's changing from the heart
