Portrait Of A Friend (Cici's Song)

PORTRAIT OF A FRIEND (CICI'S SONG) - Written by Carroll Bryant


If you look closely in her eyes
You might be surprised
Because deep inside you're gonna find
What you don't realize
That hiding in the child
Is a secret other life
Dreams that burn with a light
Enough to make you blind


And even in the darkest night
Comfort she will find
In the strength of all her might
Enough to win the fight


She's a shadow of herself
A victim of somebody else and


Everytime I try to picture
What it must be like
I ... get a snowy vision
Of time always losing time
And why does it even matter
If the heart inside is fine
It's nothing like I pictured
She changes all the time
All the time


She can make you laugh one minute
Then she can make you cry
You can think you're going to get it
And then you realize
That while the room is spinning
It's really in your mind
The gypsy girl with all her magic
Buries you alive


And even in a weaker moment
She can rip you all apart
In the gloom of impending doom
You can trust her heart


She's a shadow of the mystery
A warrior of what you believe and


Everytime I try to picture
What it must be like
I ... get a blurry vision
Of time always losing time
And why does it even matter
If the heart inside is fine
It's nothing like I pictured
She changes all the time
All the time


When a hug is not enough
I ... wanna find the hidden passage
To everything she loves


When it gets confusing
I ... only want to touch
Her deepest dreams and everything
That to her, it means so much


The woman hiding within a soul
Trapped by history and I know
The riddle ... can never be solved
Not tonight


She's a shadow of herself
A victim of everybody else and


Everytime I try to picture
What it must be like
I ... get a snowy vision
Of time always losing time
And why does it even matter
If the heart inside is fine
It's nothing like I pictured
She changes all the time
All the time


Everytime I try to picture
What it must be like
I ... get a blurry vision
Of time always losing time
And why does it even matter
If the heart inside is fine
It's nothing like I pictured
She changes all the time
All the time
