Testo : Don Henley – Take A Picture Of This

A long long time ago
When we were young and pretty
We ruled the world, we stopped the time, we knew it all, we owned this city
Running with the crowd, carefree and proud I heard somebody say
Take a picture of this
Ooh, take a picture of this
The years went rushing by, in the twinkling of an eye, we rolled with the changes
Our life we knew was gone
Our friends had all moved on, time rearranges
But on our wedding day, they all came back to say, congratulations
Take a picture of this
Ooh, take a picture of this
Then we raised a family of our own
We were so happy baby
But now those kids have grown and gone
I gave it everything I had
Through the good times and the bad
But now I’m down here on the floor
‘Cause I don’t know you anymore
Yeah that’s a suitcase, yeah that’s a ticket for a plane
There’s no one here to talk to, no reason to remain
When you spend all your time living in the past
With all those pictures that you took
Here’s one more for the book
Take a picture of this, this is me leaving
Take a picture of this, this is me walking away
Take a picture of this, take a picture of this
Take a picture of this
