Get Something on Film

A lonely scene in a field appears to me,
As my brain accesses stillframes from my memory.
A beautiful girl I recognise,
She's holding back tears,
She's crying inside.

No more pushing,
No more asking,
About what is troubling you,
I'll stop complaining.

Reason is in the way of our love now,
But I still love your photographs,
The way that you capture that,
Sense of reality.
Now your shutter-speed is set up,
The aperture adjusted,
Don't soften the focus,
Push down on the button.
You've framed the perfect shot of me,
But still it looks empty.

Back to tonight as we drive an open road,
And the silence speaks volumes more than you have told.
You can break for me girl, I'll sympathise,
And you'll have one less person that you need to lie to...

..night I know the reason,
For why your heart's been bleeding.
For this I'll never see you again.
Reason is in the way of our love now,
But I still love your photographs,
The way that you capture that,
Sense of reality.
Now the shutter-speed is set up,
The aperture adjusted,
Don't soften the focus,
Push down on the button.
You've framed the perfect shot of me,
But it'll always be empty.

Get something on film and I will,
Oh yes I will get quite a chill.
You haunt me like a villain ghost,
On an old horror movie reel.

Photos you deliver,
Who's that in the picture?
I don't know.
I wanted to leave you.
Why do I always see you?
Sweet fucking seppuku.
What if I decide to?
You'll decide too.
