No Pictures In The Picture Frames

No pictures in the picture frames They just hang lonely on the wall There's no fire in the firplace No footsteps in the hall . Don't know when it happened Know it wasn't just yesterday As we were growing older Our love seemed to slip away! . When I would reach out for you In hopes that you still cared But no matter what I did or said You were distant - just not there! . They say one can see the future Just by looking in their past Should have paid more attention Would have known this wouldn't last . Now someday in the future I will fill again those empty frames Build a fire in that fireplace To see once again its flames . I know that I will hear once more Footsteps echoing down my hall Finding joy and happiness With a new love after all . I don't know if that's my future But I know that I shall try When I give my love to someone else I'll be aware of yesterdays gone by
