LYRICS
Portrait In My Head

I hear the changing winds
I feel them blowing on my face
But I do not fear change at all
I want nothing more than to move on with my life
But some bridges are standing tall

This should kill me; it cannot fulfill me
For what is a life without peace?
How I envy the man who walks free
Who isn't tied down by memories

When I close my eyes, I cannot escape the portrait in my head
When I close my eyes, I cannot escape the portrait in my head

I will pay any price to escape
This shame in my mind
This pain in my mind
I live each day knowing it waits for me at night
And they say a picture lasts a lifetime

This should kill me; it cannot fulfill me
For what is a life without peace?
How I envy the man who walks free
Who isn't tied down or bound by memories

When I close my eyes, I cannot escape the portrait in my head
When I close my eyes, I cannot escape the portrait in my head

If a picture says a thousand words...
...then I am a thousand times cursed
