Look at me in that photograph
Before we were ever us
Long before you found someone else
And broke our sacred trust

I hardly recognize myself
Sure has been a while
Amazing how much my life has changed
Since I've worn that smile
What happened to that smile?

There I am with my head held high
My step was quick and my eyes were bright
Back when I believed in love
And would lay my heart on the line

I don't know which hurts the worst
Losing you or having to see
The picture of the man I was
Before the fool you made of me

I've wasted time here missing you
Doubting who I am
I can't make you something you're not
But I can be me again
Oh deep down I know I can

There I am with my head held high
My step was quick and my eyes were bright
Back when I believed in love
And would lay my heart on the line

I don't know which hurts the worst
Losing you or having to see
The picture of the man I was
Before the fool you made of me

I want to be the man I was
Before the fool you made of me
