Alan Jackson Lyrics

You Don't Have to Paint Me a Picture Lyrics
Her kiss was colder than I remembered
when we first said hello.
I guess the flame's now a little lower
I can feel you letting go.
You know the paint dries a little darker
than when you first put it on.
I guess your love's like some old cheap magic marker.
Said "forever", then 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 sunsets, hand in hand in a 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.

And 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

I can see the writing on the wall
