Like A Photograph

He's smiling in his red checked shirt
She's smiling in high shine hair
They're looking like a life long pair to me

Behind the scenes they've got two kids
A little boy and a girl
Nothing wrong or missing in their safe little worlds
In my imagination it's the perfect life I see

I guess I wanted my life to look just like a photograph
Yes I wanted my life to look just like a photograph

Sun shinning and the sky is blue
Never a cloud to cast a shadow on you
Everyday is like a paradise for two

Behind the scenes they have an ideal home with so many rooms
A picket fence, a dog or two a garden in bloom
In my imagination it's the perfect life I see

CHORUS

When I look around me in reality
It's not the same as in my fantasy

I wanted my life to look just like a photograph
Yes I wanted my life to look just like a photograph

His arms around her tenderly
She leans into him happily
They're looking they're so content to me

In every magazine I see the same kind of scenes
They selling dreams of heaven where the grass is green
In my imagination it's the perfect life I see

I guess I wanted my life to look just like a photograph
Yes I wanted my life to look just like a photograph
