Portrait  Misc. Unsigned Bands

Yo[E]ur portrait ha[C#7+9]ngs in the gal[F#m7]lery of my mi[B]nd,
Al[E]ong with the m[C#7+9]emories you le[F#m7]ft behind.   [B]
I [E]rest here and [C#7+9]ponder on how [F#m7]things used t[B]o be,
I [E]find comfort i[C#7+9]n dreaming tha[F#m7]t your thinki[B]ng of me.

Th[A]e masterp[E]iece of my soul[G] remains laced wi[A]th doubt
Wa[A]s I ever the one that you cared about?
You told me my smile could light up your eyes,

Was that just another of your torturous lies?

[E]The masterful [C#7+9]portrait creat[F#m7]ed by you,   [B]
[E]Once gold, cri[C#7+9]mson Remains, [F#m7]black and blu[B]e,
[E]Your empty wor[C#7+9]ds painted the[F#m7] portrait so [B]clear,
[E]Yet the truth [C#7+9]and your absen[F#m7]ce made the b[B]eauty; disappear.
I[A]’m pleading;
P[E]aint me some mo[G]re of those beaut[A]iful lies,
A[A]nd preten[E]d that you d[G]on’t see the pai[A]n in my eyes.
[E]I painted[C#7+9] a portrait fr[F#m7]om me to you,[B]
[E]Painted with w[C#7+9]ords that were[F#m7] honest and t[B]rue,
[E]The canvas now[C#7+9] burns in the [F#m7]fire of goodb[B]ye,
[E]The splendor n[C#7+9]ow drowning in[F#m7] the tears fr[B]om my eyes.
I [A]was naïve be[E]lieving those w[G]ords that you[A] spoke,
Y[A]ou wished fo[E]r my spirit, bu[G]t it was my h[A]eart that you broke,
W[A]on’t you com[E]e, hold me clos[G]e, save me fr[A]om this pain?
A[A]nd restore m[E]y portrait to g[G]lory again.  [A]
