Picture Perfect

from by Jim Offerman

lyrics

A ragged piece of linen
I came to you an empty canvas
Then you brought out your brush
And you started to paint
Me in color
Where my skin is weak

You never saw the wrong in me
You only see what's right
And in your painting
You surround me by light
That is brighter than the brightest day
Let me fade away
In your light

Go ahead and paint your picture
Of the perfect me
Never mind that the edge of my canvas is...

When the edge hides behind the frame
Your picture is quite a sight
You display it in our living room
And you show it to everyone
Show what I've become
Show your pride

Go ahead and paint your picture
Of the perfect me
Never mind that the edge of my canvas is
Worn to shreds
Those are my loose ends

(solo)

Go ahead and paint your picture
Of the perfect me
Never mind that the edge of my canvas is
Worn to shreds
Those are my loose ends
