My favorite picture of you
Is the one where
Your wings are showingOh and your arms are crossed
Your fists are clenched
Not gone but goingJust a stand up angel
Who won’t back down
Nobody’s fool, nobody’s clown
You were smarter than that
Clark dedicates this song to his wife. He remembers the night when Clark was busy drinking alcohol with his friends so his wife gets mad. It brings back the happy memories they made. He even remembers the days when he took a picture of her and as he does, her wife gave her the sweetest smile. Loving someone who is now in heaven shows a different kind of love. They may not be with you personally but they leave footprints in your heart that keeps you holding on.
