lyrics

I wish she was as happy as she seemed in the picture
I wish she was as happy as she looked back then
Had her head on my shoulder and my arm wrapped around her
We were glowing, like we'd both swallowed sun
Someone said, 'smile,' so we did
Shit-eating grins, two silly kids
As if nothing could go wrong, two young girls with eyeliner on
And her voice was like a poem, and we'd just danced for hours
I loved her mind and I was hers and she was mine
Says she's not afraid of dying because she's got a lot of friends there
And if one thing is for certain, it's that we'll all be there soon
And her calm when she talks about God waiting up in heaven
Makes me wish I could believe in that too
I wish she was as happy as she looked in the picture
I wish she was as happy as she looked back then
