Lyrics: 

You snap a picture
And you snatch it fast
You gotta grab the moment before it’s passed

When you develop
You do it right
You gotta hang it up before somebody lets in the light

So carelessly
Bleach it out, bleach it out
So carelessly

You’re not used
To being the muse
You don’t like having the attention solely focused on you

I understand it
But I think you’re a model’s fool
You need to stop yourself enforcing someone else’s rules

So carelessly
Bleach it out, bleach it out
So carelessly

You piece together
All the ragged strips
Of a ruined moment focused on paper lips

A silver lining lies
In the silver salts
It’s pretty hard for picture evidence to turn out false

But a split second is exactly that

So carelessly
Bleach it out, bleach it out
So carelessly
Bleach it out, bleach it out

So carelessly
Bleach it out, bleach it out
So carelessly
(Bleach it out, bleach it out)

(Bleach it out, bleach it out)

LOVE the imagery in this and the extended metaphor. "You piece together all the ragged strips of a ruined moment focused on paper lips," that's good stuff. I like the sparse harmony that you pop in here and there too.

Really top-notch writing. "A silver lining lies/In the silver salts" --- WOW. Brilliant lyric work, that! The tune is really good too. Nice work overall!

Fun tune, quite catchy really.

I'm old enough to have developed film in a darkroom and used one or two of the tricks, dodging and burning and what have you. I like the idea of the photographer, not wanting the attention on them -- that's why they're behind the camera, not in front of it.

The harmonies are sweet, and welcome. And I kinda love the birds in the background. Love going out on "Bleach it out / bleach it out", that's just lovely.

English majors make a difference, man alive. Some incisive writing there. I like the contrast between the verses and chorus, the harmonies, the birds.

Nice song. Harmonies are a real joy. Lyrics are clever and to the point. Vocal is a joy to listen to. Good work.
