lyrics

I can tell from your pictures
I can tell from your pictures
I can tell from your pictures
that my life has been empty.

I can tell from your pictures
that my life has been empty.

What a varied life you lead
in places I may never go.
Oh, what a nice-looking family.

Here is every photograph
in which I look amazing;
my windowsill lined with my trophies.

Look at all the things I’ve done,
some that I myself have missed
taking photos like scalps for my friends to see.

What once was an afterthought—
‘Oh, let’s get one of the group!’
(and then forget).
Now it’s the raison d’être.

Let me hear everyone just admit:
‘I can tell from your pictures
that my life has been empty.’
