Ed Sheeran – Photograph lyrics

[Verse 1]
Loving can hurt, loving can hurt sometimes.
But it's the only thing that I know
.
When it gets hard, you know it can get hard sometimes,
It is the only thing that makes us feel alive
.

[Pre-Chorus]
We keep this love in a photograph.
We made these memories for ourselves.
Where our eyes are never closing,
Our hearts are never broken,
And time's forever frozen, still
.

[Chorus]
So you can keep me
Inside the pocket of your ripped jeans.
Holding me close until our eyes meet.
You won't ever be alone, wait for me to come home
.

[Verse 2]
Loving can heal, loving can mend your soul,
And it's the only thing that I know, know
.
I swear it will get easier, remember that with every piece of 'ya,
And it's the only thing we take with us when we die.

[Pre-Chorus]
We keep this love in a photograph.
We made these memories for ourselves.
Where our eyes are never closing,
Our hearts were never broken,
And time's forever frozen, still
.

[Chorus]
So you can keep me
Inside the pocket of your ripped jeans.
Holding me close until our eyes meet.
You won't ever be alone
,
And if you hurt me,
That's okay baby, only words bleed.
Inside these pages you just hold me,
And I won't ever let you go
.
Wait for me to come home,
Wait for me to come home,
Wait for me to come home,
Wait for me to come home.

[Bridge]
You can fit me
Inside the necklace you got when you were sixteen.
Next to your heartbeat where I should be.
Keep it deep within your soul
.
And if you hurt me
Well that's okay baby, only words bleed.
Inside these pages you just hold me
,
And I won't ever let you go.

[Outro]
When I'm away, I will remember how you kissed me
Under the lamppost back on Sixth street,
Hearing you whisper through the phone,
Wait for me to come home
.

    This song just makes me think of anytime a loved one is away. For example, parents who have gone away, it tears both them and the child apart, but looking at a photograph keeps them somewhat together, like having a little piece of them with you that you can take wherever you go. Not just for comfort, but also as a reminder, or a promise. So you can remember their face, or just so you can wait for them to come home. The picture is a reminder of something that has already been and/or a promise for a future to come. There are some parts that pretty much turn it towards a significant other, but truly, if you take those out, or just look over them, it can really be applied to anyone you love and miss, who isn't near you at the moment. The picture is also hope, that soon, you won't just have a picture, but you will be back with the one of whom the picture is. No matter how far away they are, you just wait. "Wait for me to come home."

    Well I think this song is just about love. If you love someone wherever they are you would still have that love, you should cherish the memories you have with the person. When your with that special person you will be okay and "time will be forever frozen still". This song is just simply wonderful.

    This song has been perfect for me and the situation I am in.

    Been in a relationship for a year and a half with a man in the UK and I live in Chicago. He visited me this year and it went fairly well (did have a few hiccups as is natural in most relationships). When he left, we hugged and had a tender moment at the airport and kissed several times - I'll never forget this moment. It was hard to see him go. We called and texted afterwards and he said that he was going to come back to Chicago soon and that he really wanted to be here and spend more time with me. Two months later, he texted me that he had met someone in the UK and that it looked like it may well go somewhere. It was one of the hardest things to go through break-up wise since I loved him.

    But, we have a picture that we took together when he first arrived in Chicago and I hold that close to me - it's a picture that showed us together before the pieces fell apart. It was such a magical moment. I still hope that he comes back to visit me in Chicago sometime and that this current relationship he is in will just be a fleeting thing. But, I'm not naive and will continue to heal and move forward in the meantime - because love will heal and mend my heart.

    Thank you Ed Sheeran for writing a song that has been 100% true to my situation. I hope that he will "come home" one day but will forever hold him in my heart with this picture until then.

    This song means one thing only that having photographs with someone you love makes both your memories non fading it simply says that he loves photographs because no matter the person in it changes the photograph never change its meaning and the person in it. It's like after we fight and if ever we both got hurt I'll be the keeper of our memories. When he says this:

    "You can fit me.
    Inside the necklace you got when you were sixteen.
    Next to your heartbeat where I should be.
    Keep it deep within your soul."

    It means that his photo will fit in her necklace placed near her heartbeat where lives and where he would love to stay forever and she should keep that simple reminder forever.

    After listening to this song I wanna say that I love this man even if he doesn't know that I do I love you ricky forever:

    You know what this song reminds me of?
    Thomas Brodie-Sangster and Isabella Melling.
    When I hear this song, I just imagine them smiling, slow-dancing, talking, and laughing to the song.
    And at the end of the song, I imagine that they share a small kiss.
    Its adorable, they're adorable, you think?
