Pictures On Mantles Lyrics

Grandpa in his tux and boutonniere
Grandma in her gown and train
And though they’re gone they shine on through the years
In that old wooden picture frame

Uncle Johnny in Marine attire
Standing on a foreign shore
Still warms the heart above a smouldering fire
Though he never came home from the war

Long after this life’s over
Love will shine on
In pictures on mantles
Eternal candles
Sparks that rekindle yesterday
When fires fade to embers
And our life surrender
They will remember the love we made
In pictures on mantles

The hands of time they never hesitate
And only love will survive
And soon whatever life that we create
Will be reduced to 3-by-5

And when we’re nothing more than memories
Love will live on
In pictures on mantles
Eternal candles
Sparks that rekindle yesterday
When fires fade to embers
And our life surrender
They will remember the love we made
In pictures on mantles

And long after this life’s over
Love will shine on
In pictures on mantles
Eternal candles
Sparks that rekindle yesterday
When fires fade to embers
And our life surrender
They will remember the love we made
In pictures on mantles
