Faded Pictures

“Faded Pictures” was track 4 on Personal Conversation, the 2nd studio album by R&B singer Case. It was released way back on April 20, 1999.

Just faded pictures in a broken glass
Like a mirror revealing
What the woman is feeling
Was it someone from a distant past?

As she turned through the pages the tears rolled down her face
I could see her reminiscing, why her life had to be this way
Then she stopped and she came to a page where her diary ends
To smell the scent of an old rose, from her lover I suppose

 

Faded pictures in a broken glass (in a broken glass)
Like a mirror revealing (I feel it)
What the woman is feeling (yeah and I know it too)
Was it someone from a distant past? (Way back long ago)
‘Cause it’s breaking my heart
You’re breaking my, you’re breaking my
You’re breaking my heart girl
Faded pictures in a broken glass
Oh, hmm


… certainly, this post is not for everyone 🙂

You may need a basic level of appreciation of R&B music to feel this song and its lyrics. While I have tried to find some photos that match the attitude expressed .. that’s really not the point here. In my book, faded pictures in a broken glass .. that’s just fine, as long as you have pictures.   Do you?   Do you have pictures?
