The negatives rolled out like a dark water wake at the magic hours.
Burned with the past reflecting.
The mental film always playing back all of our sweet encounters.
On the wall, projecting.
And tired eyes look up at the smiles and your lovely shape.
All Together, perfecting.
This dark place only shines of all the memories and pain.
Here we are, ending.

Slaving away in a room, piecing it frame by frame.
The color of your hair, and how it always changed.
The whispers in my ear, and the listless games.
Then you would disappear in the curtain's flames.
The times you cared, and the times you stayed.
The loving stares, and then you walked away.
When I was child, swimming in Superman's cape.
The curses on your tongue, and how I chased.

Rewinding the pictures all back, but soon they may break.
And gone forever.
Don't let them hit the light or they'll be exposed as inane.
And you won't remember.
The moving photos cast their colors, flaring around me.
I can take no more.
Further it goes in the glow, as the images wash over me.
We go to the cutting room floor.

Slaving away in a room, piecing it frame by frame.
The look in your eyes, the kisses on my face.
Your hand in mine, and the sound of Grace
Fleeting hopes, and the sudden mistakes.
When you grown bored, and I had fallen afraid.
When we were silhouettes on the frozen lake.
When I wanted to call but you stumbled insane.
The snowing cold and the final embrace.

Each sequence leads to the next, they can't be cut.
It's all been shot all too perfect, It can't be cut.
Oh, but it wouldn't make sense, it can't be cut.
Making sure it never ends, it won't be cut.
