"In Case" as written by Priscilla Renea and Emanuel Kiriakou....
Pictures in my pocket
Are faded from the washer
I can barely just make out your face
Food you saved for later
In my refrigerator
It's been too long since later never came

I know
One day eventually
Yeah, I know
One day I'll have to let it all go
But I keep it just in case
Yeah, I keep it just in case

In case
You don't find what you're looking for
In case
You're missing what you had before
In case
You change your mind, I'll be waiting here
In case
You just want to come home

Strong enough to leave you
But weak enough to need you
Cared enough to let you walk away
I took that dirty jacket
From the trash right where you left it
'Cause I couldn't stand to see it go to waste

I know
One day eventually
Yeah, I know
One day I'll have to let it all go
But I keep it just in case
Yeah, I keep it just in case

In case
You don't find what you're looking for
In case
You're missing what you had before
In case
You change your mind, I'll be waiting here
In case
You just want to come home
In case

You're looking in that mirror one day
And miss my arms
How they wrapped around your waist
I say that you can love me again
Even if it isn't the case

Ohh
You don't find what you're looking for
Ohh
You're missing my love
You don't find what you're looking for
In case
You're missing what you had before
In case
You change your mind, I'll be waiting here
In case
You just want to come home
In case
Yeah, ooh

    General CommentI think this song is about holding on to something that you know you should let go of. Whether they left you or you left them, it's hard to let go of something you've always wanted. It's when every part of you wants to rip up his letters and burn his clothes... but then you find yourself sitting on your bedroom floor in his jacket re-reading it.
    "Strong enough to leave you, but weak enough to need you." You'd go back to him in a heartbeat even when you know you shouldn't.
    You keep everything just in case he ever comes running back. Just in case he changes his mind, you still have everything, including your feelings for him.

    My InterpretationI think this song basically mean that someone cannot let someone they once loved go and are so upset of the fact that person has left them. They can't seem to let go all the memories and objects that are still with them. If they still love them than they'd keep everything until the feelings disconnect from them and that's when they're able to let them go. It goes on saying that if they don't find anyone better than them than they will take them back in an instant. It also goes on to say what many people say when they break up with someone.. Majority of relationships end because another person feels as though they're not right for each other and break it off, even if they don't want to.
