This song was originally played on piano. I've adapted it to guitar.

your picture
   Am    Em Dm Ab
is still
      Am  Em Dm Ab
on my wall
      Am  Em Dm Ab
on my wall
    Am    Em Dm Ab
the colors
    Am    Em Dm Ab
are bright
Am     Em Dm Ab
bright
   Am   Em Dm Ab
as ever

*This part can be plucked very easily, or it can be strummed with chords, but the chords 
kinda wacky, and they sound really bad unless you do it perfectly, so I'll just include 
plucked notes. If you'd like to tab the chords and post them, please do.

e|------------------------|

G|-2-0-------0------------|
D|-----3-2-3--------------|

the red is strong
the blue is pure

G           F           C
some things last a long time
G           F           C
some things last a long time

Then there's a characteristically Daniel out-of-place electric guitar effect that I 
include since I'm playing this on an acoustic. I'm sure you can figure it out.

your picture
is still
on my wall
on my wall
I think
about you
often
often
I can't forget all the things we did
some things last a long time
some things last a long time

it's funny
but it's true
and it's true
but it's not funny
time comes and goes
all the while
I still think of you
some things last a long time

your picture
is still
on my wall
on my wall
the colors
are bright
bright
as ever
the things that we did
i can't forget
some things last a life time
some things last a life time
