I've got a photograph
I took a picture of you
I took your picture
In front of my favorite view

You play the part so well
You look so sure and free
No one could ever tell
That you belong to me

And 'cause you lie so well
I've got to pin you down
Under lock and key
So you will always be in my collection

If you can't speak, you can't lie
If you can't run, you can't hide
I know a place, you can't die
So no one lives inside my collection

I want to capture you
I want to immortalize
The way you play with your hair
The way you flash your eyes

I taste the air you breathe
I taste the food you eat
I keep your nails and hair
And some of the clothes you wear

If you can't speak, you can't lie
If you can't run, you can't hide
And if you're dead, you can't die
So no one lives inside
No one lives inside my collection

I've got some photographs
I'd like to show them to you
Though you don't know the girls
You'll recognize the view
