a picture of you

(john james beveridge – peter andrew oakman)

In the night there are sights to be seen
Stars like jewels on the crown of a queen
But the only sight I wanna view
Is that wonderful picture of you
On the streetcar or in the cafe
All of the evening and most of the day
My mind is in a maze, what can I do?
I’ll still see that picture of you

It was last summer, I fell in love
My heart told me what to do
I saw you there on the crest of a hill
And I took a little picture of you
Then you were gone like a dream in the night
With you went my heart, my love and my light
I didn’t know your name, what could I do?
I only had a picture of you

And you were gone like a dream in the night
With you went my heart, my love and my light
I didn’t know you’re name, what could I do
I only had a picture of you, oh yes
That wonderful picture of you
I’m in love with a picture of you, oh yes
A wonderful picture of you
