Photograph

 Call me a hopeless romantic and no I’m not the type that reads romance novels and watch romantic movies. Well I have to admit, that I did pick up a romance novel here and there, Yeah, I’ll even admit I brought me a copy of “Fifty Shades of Grey” way before it was hyped up on the internet and before the movie. But like all the other romance novels; I start them, but never finished them. Hell, I even got one in Spanish to help me master the language. But, same result, I never finished it. Not really interested in hearing or reading romance from the female perspective. It doesn’t appeal to me; although I read bits and pieces for research purposes. But that’s another matter. Perhaps it would have paid me better to look for one from the male perspective. But I won’t be going out my way to do that no time soon. The only romance stuff coming from the men’s point of view is pornography; that is if the porn movie actually have a decent story line. Can anyone change my mind to this fact…   

OK, getting to today’s Fandango’s one word challenge (FOWC) “photograph;” I want y’all to keep in mind that being a hopeless romantic also means listening to “love songs.” Yeah, I’ve listened to them all, at least the number one hits because it is on top of the charts. So my answer to FOWC is an old song called “Your Photograph.” by Stranger Cole and Queen Patsy.

Well I did have another song called “Photograph” in mind. This one is by Ringo Starr; but it doesn’t sound too intimate to me. I guess there is a reason why Ringo Starr doesn’t have the success as a solo artist like his two dead bandmates had; and the living bandmate have. But, for some people it may appeal to them, so I’ll include both.

You left you picture behind to remind me
You left it a long long time I can’t forget you
Just because I need your love
I’ll wait, I’ll wait for you
Will your photograph bring your love, love, love, to me right now
You left me in sadness how about happyness
You left me in loneliness lord I’m a fool
Just because you’re the one I adore
My photograph will bring my love to you

Just because I need your love
I’ll wait, I’ll wait for you
My photograph will bring my love to you

You left me in sadness how about happyness
You left me in loneliness lord I’m a fool
Just because I need your love
I’ll wait, I’ll wait for you
My photograph will bring my love to you
Will your photograph bring your love, love, love, to me right now
My photograph will bring my love to you

Ev’ry time I see your face
It reminds me of the places we used to go
But all I’ve got is a photograph
And I realise you’re not coming back anymore

I thought I’d make it
The day you went away
But I can’t make it
Till you come home again to stay-yi-yay-yi-yay.

I can’t get used to living here
While my heart is broke
My tears I cried for you
I want you here to have and hold
As the years go by
And we grow old and grey

Now you’re expecting me to live without you
But that’s not something that I’m looking forward to

I can’t get used to living here
While my heart is broke
My tears I cried for you
I want you here to have and hold
As the years go by
And we grow old and grey
