"Photo" as written by Kara Dioguardi and Ryan Cabrera....
A photo can say a thousand things
But it can't say the million things I wanna say
A photo can capture the way we were
But it can't capture the way we are
'Cause you're far away
What it's like to know you
What it's like to touch you

When you told me that you loved me
Were those just words
You can't tell me you don't need me
And I know that hurts
'Cause I'm looking at your picture
'Cause it's all I've got
Maybe one day
You and me will have one more shot

Timing lost minutes and moments
And I might be lonely girl
But I'm not afraid
In a second
It all comes right back to me
Nothing's forgotten now
Yeah everything's saved
What it's like to touch you
What it's like to know you

When you told me that you loved me
Were those just words
You can't tell me you don't need me
And I know that hurts
'Cause I'm looking at your picture
'Cause it's all I've got
Maybe one day
You and me will have one more shot

You were my life
You were my faith
You gave me hope every day

When you told me that you loved me
Were those just words
You can't tell me you don't need me
And I know that hurts
'Cause I'm looking at your picture
'Cause it's all I've got
Maybe one day
You and me will have one more shot

    General Commentthis song kind of means the world to me. you have that picture of a perfect moment in time when everything made sense. but now the one you are in love with is gone and all you have is that picture and all the memories and feelings flood back into your heart. "maybe one day. you and me will have one more shot" there is hope in the conclusion of the song.

    and my favorite part is.. "when you told me that you loved me, were those just words? you cant tell me you dont need me cause i know it hurts" its so strong. wanting to be sure the words exchanged were truthful and that they still hold a place in their heart as well. because how could they not?
