lyrics

And as the light flashed
a second it takes
to capture a life
and all it's mistakes
she never could've known
in centuries to come
all the questions we'd ask
about the seed that she'd sown

I can hear the sounds
of her past coming through
and a hint of confusion
if only she knew

Every word she ever said
every choice she ever made
while she's down on her knees
every time she ever prayed

In that moment
of insecurity
her eyes cast away
like the truth in her face
never seeing light of day

And as the light flashed
a second it takes
to capture a life
and all it's mistakes
she never could've known
in centuries to come
all the questions we'd ask
about the seed that she'd sown

I could never believe
all the truth that I see
when the girl in the picture
is no longer to be

And the flash that had given
a light to the lens
and the film that processed
into this evidence
I could never
understand why she
was sad at the time
when this picture was taken
forever sublime
