about

This is a song spanning two generations about the moment when doubt starts to creep in after having made a commitment to someone.

lyrics

"Photograph"

He wanted her
She wanted him
Old photograph, monochrome

He's handsome
She tells him so
So dumbstruck, he can't find his feet

She put her hand in his
Led him across the floor
He stumbled clumsily
He'd never danced before

Old photograph is fading now
Old memories never will

When the fire's gone cold and the jokes have got old
Feel you're losing your hold on each other
There's no place you can be, it's so easy to see
You can't make it alone without her

Can't believe it's really you in that smile
Can't believe those pants were ever in style
See the Summer touch her golden skin
Your bright eyes shining with the fire within

She put her hand in yours
Led you across the floor
You muttered hastily
You'd never danced before

Old photograph is fading now
Old memories never will

When the fire's gone cold and the jokes have got old
Feel you're losing your hold on each other
There's no place you can be, it's so easy to see
You can't make it alone without her

'Cos you know she's got soul
'Cos you know the girl's got soul
'Cos you know she's got soul
'Cos you know the girl's got soul
