"Photographs and Memories" as written by and Jason Reeves....
I keep your picture by my bed
For when I'm feeling sad, I don't know why I would be
The way your smile looks so real
I feel like I could start to understand your grace

But I, I don't understand why you're not here with me
And I, I don't even wanna know where else you'd be

Cause I have photographs and memories of the times
You weren't on my mind and I was alone
I have poetry and drawings of my life
You weren't on my side and I didn't know
Just what is love

Writing moments on the wall with different colors
Keeps my mind away from missing you
And I can't wait to fall asleep to slip into my dreams
Where we can dance upon a star

And I be as patient as a boy in love could ever be
And I don't feel like I was real until you were a part of me

Cause I have photographs and memories of the times
You weren't on my mind and I, I was alone
And I have poetry and drawings of my life
You weren't on my side and I didn't know
Just what is

I need you back, I need you back, I need you here
I need your smile, I need your eyes, I need you, dear
Every line on your face makes a beautiful maze
For my eyes to trace
Every line on your face makes a beautiful maze
For my eyes to trace

I have photographs and memories of the times
You weren't on my mind and I was alone

    General Commentthis song reminds me of a long distance relationship or maybe two people at different colleges... like maybe the people are together when they're together and when they aren't it's like a don't ask-don't tell thing. "and i dont understand why you're
    not here with me. and i dont even wanna know where else you'd be." it just makes me think of people that are separated by like physical distance

    General CommentI love this song so much. I've heard it before, once long ago. However, a friend recently reintroduced me to Jason Reeves again. This song means so much to me, it reminds me of a broken relationship and even though it's over, you still need that person. A part of my heart will always beat solely for this one person... no matter how badly it ended or how much this person is not good for me, i need him. The photographs and memories keep him alive inside my heart.

    General Commentthe end verse is my favorite, so pure in everyway, and very straight forward. What more can you ask for?

    Life would be so much easier if guys were so straight forward and didnt pussy-foot around everything.
