She said I'll throw myself away,
They're just photos after all
I can't make you hang around.
I can't wash you off my skin.
Outside the frame, is what were leaving out
You wont remember anyway
I can go with the flow
But don't say it doesnt't't matter anymore
I can go with the flow
Do you believe it in your head?
Its so safe to play along
Little soldiers in a row
Falling in and out of love
With something sweet to throw away.
But I want something good to die for
To make it beautiful to live.
I want a new mistake, lose is more than hesitate.
Do you believe it in your head?
I can go with the flow
But don't say it doesnt't't matter anymore
I can go with the flow
Do you believe it in your head?

    I think the song is more about having a meaningful relationship than being in love. He sees that his gf is shallow and trite, and he wants more, which entails risk; the possibility of pain.

    They are discussing their breakup and the division/disposal of belongings. She's saying she'll throw away photos that have her in them; that to do that isn't even the point, because even keeping such mememtos doesn't help you really remember, because so much more happened and was shared than the photos can remind them of. And getting rid of them won't change the fact that some memories are indelible. So you might as well get rid of them. But even if you do that, don't make the mistake of saying that they love that was shared is also to be disregarded and devalued. Don't say that doesn't matter. Don't pretend that it's easy to just throw things away and switch off emotions, like putting soldiers in a row.
    So it's end of relationship despair. Someone's being a bit dramatic, hoping for the next relationship to be a grand passion (to die for).
