    My ex and I went on for years
    Traveled the world, became parents
    For every occasion or event
    She always had a camera
    From Reykavik to Jakarta
    She captured every moment
    She left me stranded with the pictures
    The night she took the baby and went

    Photos survive when people are gone
    After the loved ones have departed
    Their images go on and on

    Likenesses remain after they're dead
    Weird snapshots outlast reality
    Ghostly icons stuck in our heads

    My mother died not long ago
    She was an avid photographer
    Kept her photo albums in a drawer
    Now they're stored in my computer
    Those pictures are not really us
    Just depictions on a screen
    Our time together as a family
    Is now a lifeless memory

    Photos survive when people are gone
    After the loved ones have departed
    Their images go on and on
    Pictures Outlive People
    Likenesses remain after they're dead
    Weird snapshots outlast reality
    Ghostly icons stuck in our heads

    Now I wonder if
    I remember people
    Or just pictures
    Of people

    Pictures Outlive People
    Photos survive when people are gone
    After the loved ones have departed
    Their images go on and on

    Likenesses remain after they're dead
    Weird snapshots outlast reality
    Ghostly icons stuck in our heads
