lyrics

The portrait

When I woke up this morning
I wanted to draw your face
I didn’t find any paper
So I used the window pane
I worked all day
On the portrait
My fingers on the wet glass
When you came home that night
You opened the window
I said wait
It was too late

Everywhere I looked
Everything I saw
There was something to be made
Exactly as it was
Everywhere I looked
Everything I saw
There was something to be made
With nothing added

I drew a line
It was just a line
I drew one more
It became a face
Night and day
He painted
Night and day
When he was done
there was no empty space

Everywhere I looked
Everything I saw
There was something to be made
Exactly as it was
Everywhere I looked
Everything I saw
There was something to be made
With nothing added
