You Don't Have To Paint Me A Picture Lyrics

by Alan Jackson

The kiss was colder than I remember
When we first said hello
I guess the flame's now a little lower
I can feel you letting go

You know the pain dries a little darker
When you first put it on
I guess your love's like some old cheap magic marker
Said forever, now it's gone

But you don't have to paint me a picture
You don't have to say a thing at all
You don't have to paint me a picture
I can see the writing on the wall

When we first fell, we fell a long way
Summer nights and winter days
Mountain sunrise, ocean sunset
Hand in hand in the haze

Now it's cold, hard summer evenings
And there's clouds on my sunrise
But you don't have to smile and say you're happy
I can see what's in your eyes

You don't have to paint me a picture
You don't have to say a thing at all
You don't have to paint me a picture
I can see the writing on the wall
Yeah I can see the writing on the wall
