"Picture" with Sheryl Crow & Kid Rock



[Kid Rock sings]
Living my life in a slow hell
Different girl every night at the hotel
I ain't seen the sunshine in three damn days
Been fueling up on cocaine and whiskey
Wish I had a good girl to miss me
Oh Lord I wonder if I'll ever change my ways

[Chorus repeated x 2]
I put your picture away
Sat down and cried today
I can't look at you
While I'm lying next to her
I put your picture away
Sat down and cried today
I can't look at you while I'm lying next to her

[Sheryl Crow sings]
I called you last night in the hotel
Everyone knows but they won't tell
But their half-hearted smiles tell me something just ain't right
I've been waiting on you for a long time
Filling up on heartaches and cheap wine
I ain't heard from you in three damn nights

[Chorus repeated x 2]
I put your picture away
I wonder where you've been
I can't look at you while I'm lying next to him
I put your picture away
I wonder where you've been
I can't look at you while I'm lying next to him


[Sheryl Crow sings]
I saw you yesterday with an old friend

[Kid Rock sings]
It was the same old, same "How have you been?"

[Both sing]
Since you've been gone my world's been dark and grey

[Kid Rock sings]
You reminded me of brighter days

[Sheryl Crow sings]
I hoped you were coming home to stay
I was headed to church

[Kid Rock sings]
I was off to drink you away

[Both sing]
I thought about you for a long time
Can't seem to get you off my mind
I can't understand why we're living life this way
I found your picture today
I swear I'll change my ways
I just called to say I want you to come back home

I found your picture today
I swear I'll change my ways
I just called to say I want you
To come back home
I just called to say I love you
Come back home
