"Urban Photograph" as written by and Emil Anders/flyckt Gustafsson....
We don't mind if you take a photograph
If you take a photograph
We don't care that we'll never be like you
That we'll never be like you
Love is all, all we ever know for sure, know for sure
I know you, you'll be coming back for more
You'll be coming back for more

We can fight anything that we can use
All I do is just for you
Sometimes it feels like I've been trapped for years
All I ever feel is fear
Tell me why do they keep me in this place
In this place
Please don't trap us don't matter what you say
I know that you're not amazed
Soon I'll be gone
Soon I'll be gone
Soon I'll be gone
Soon I'll be gone

We do mind if you take a photograph
If you take a photograph
Now we care that we'll never be like you
That we'll never be like you
Love was all, all we ever knew for sure, knew for sure
I know you, won’t be coming back for more
Won't be coming back for more
Soon I'll be gone
Soon I'll be gone
Soon I'll be gone
Soon I'll be gone
And you’re not allowed to come
Love was old, all we ever knew for sure, knew for sure.

    My InterpretationMaybe its just me but it seems to me that the lyrics convey a couple's perspective on love vs. society's ideals on love.The photograph represents the image we perceive people to be or the couple to be in this matter. In the first stanza, the persona tries to defy the norm. How they'll be different from any couple or failed relationships. The second stanza shows how the norm tries to keep them at bay. The third stanza concludes how the social norms eventually become significant to the ones involved in a relationship. I was once in an open relationship, at first I felt so edgy but eventually the norms of being an exclusive relationship caught up with me. I always thought that love was too old for anyone to be understood or for anyone to claim but eventually our love grew old and it died. So neither of us never came back for more. :P
