about

This song "Picture Frame" is based on a true story about Jeroen's grandmother who passed away 5 years before he was born. About the tragedy of a huge fire killing not only his grandmother but also 5 of her children back in 1967. With hardly any pictures and just a few stories about who she was, this song tells the story of a grandchild with just a picture in a frame and a place on a graveyard as well the piece of ground where their former house was standing to remember. When you are getting older yourself, more questions are rising about your roots. You wanna know what kinda similarities you share, behavior, humor and so one. This song is a moment of reflection and a tribute to a woman born exactly 100 years ago, a brave woman giving her life trying to rescue her children.

lyrics

My dear grandma, The Lord has her soul
She was so funny, or so I’ve been told
Though I visit her twice a year
The silence is all I can hear

All I want are just memories
The memories we didn’t make
All I have is your picture in a frame

Now I have come to the same age
When you saw the light and were afraid
It was that cold and dark night
It was the fire fading out your light

All I want are just memories
The memories we didn’t make
All I have is your picture in a frame

All the stories soon fade away
The ones I know, they’ll always stay
Maybe one day, when I’ll see the light
Will we catch up on the other side?

All I want are just memories
The memories we didn’t make
All I have is your picture in a frame

All I want are just memories
The memories we didn’t make
All I have is your picture in a frame

All I have is your picture in a frame
All I have is your picture in a frame
