"Hold Time" as written by and M. Ward....
You were beyond comprehension tonight
But I understood
I understood
If only I could hold time
Hold time
Hold time

Words have failed me tonight, failed me tonight
But you knew what I meant
You knew what I meant
Yeah, you heard what I said the whole time
The whole time
The whole time

And I wrote this song about it
Cause I didn't care about anyone in this photograph
Yeah, I wrote this song just to remember the endless, endless summer in your life
Endless summer in your life

    General CommentThese lyrics sound better to my ears:

    You were beyond comprehension tonight
    But I understood
    I understood
    If only I could
    Hold time
    Hold time
    Hold time

    Words have failed me tonight, failed me tonight
    But you knew what I meant
    You knew what I meant
    Yeah you heard what I said
    The whole time
    The whole time
    Whole time

    And I wrote this song about it
    Cuz I didn't care about any worthless photograph
    Yeah I wrote this song just to remember
    The endless endless summer in your laugh
    Endless summer in your laugh

    General Commenthmm, interesting. I think the "anyone in this photograph" is right, but I think you're right with laugh part, it rhymes better anyway. He always pronounces things weird though, so you never know

    General CommentI stand corrected, definitely is "worthless photograph" thanks to an NPR recording. This song grows on me everytime I hear it

    General CommentHeard this song for the first time today on WWUH (Univ. of Hartford's station). It was an ambience show. Oh man! I was such in a trance as this song came on! Wow. Such a dreamy tune! Love the lyrics.

    I just think it's about a guy just singing about the best feeling in the world: having no need for words!
