about

Written, performed and produced by Robert LaSalle

lyrics

i woke beneath the morning bells
in the shadows where i painted myself
on a canvas far from home
in a place only you and i know

with picture perfect hindsight
i've painted under still light
a beautiful love
why aren't you here with me now?

there's a garden full of comely faces
and an ocean for your warm embraces
where there was love, now there is solid ground
and a frame for all your love's losts and founds

with picture perfect hindsight
i've painted under still light
a beautiful love
why aren't you here with me now?
(i see what i see and still see through, 'cause i love you)

would you tell me that i got it wrong?
would you throw my paintbrush away?
if you were to hear this song,
would you see my canvas mostly blank?

with picture perfect hindsight
i've painted under still light
a beautiful love
why aren't you here with me now?

i see what i saw and still see through,
'cause i love you
i see what i see and still see through,
'cause i love you
(oh, i still see through, 'cause i love you)
(its just a canvas without you, and i still see through)
