lyrics

Perfect little pictures, open little mouths

I remember your voice
From my old answering machine
In a room that was never clean
Looping playblack

While I traced the pictures
From the back of the book you wrote
Traced them in raw charcoal
Stained my fingers black

I chased you back to the beginning
Of the year I found you alone
When I was too sick with wanting you
To see what you’d become
What have you done?

Time steals away
The things that you really meant
I’m only as pretty as my silhouette
But I’ve got some style

I’ve worked hard to forget
The way your boots would fall to the floor
The sound of your key turning in the door
But once in awhile

I chase you back to the beginning
Of the year I found you alone
When I was too sick with wanting you
To see what you’d become
What have you done?

Perfect little pictures
Open little mouths
The truth comes tumbling out
It doesn’t make a sound
