Pictures of People Taking Pictures Lyrics

by Jack Johnson

Pictures of people taking
Pictures of people taking
Pictures of people taking

Pictures of people taking
Pictures of people taking
Pictures of people taking pictures

I pictured us at the end of time
Holding up a camera to our eyes
I took a picture of you took a picture of me
In the background of the picture was water running to the sea

So I pictured us standing there
Just staying away from time
Just watching it like a river
As it slowly washes by, washes by

And now
Pictures of people taking
Pictures of people taking
Pictures of people taking pictures

Pictures of people taking
Pictures of people taking
Pictures of people taking pictures

The feedback loop is closing in so tight
Surrounding ourselves with satellites

But I picture us standing there
Just staying away from time
Just watching it like a river
As it slowly washes by, washes by

And now
Pictures of people taking
Pictures of people taking
Pictures of people taking pictures

And now
Pictures of people taking
Pictures of people taking
Pictures of people taking pictures

Pictures of people taking
Pictures of people taking
Pictures of people taking pictures

Pictures of people taking
Pictures of people taking
Pictures of people taking pictures

I pictured us at the end of time
Taking pictures of nothing
