Loving can hurt, loving can hurt sometimes
But it's the only thing that I know
When it gets hard, you know it can get hard sometimes
It is the only thing makes us feel alive

We keep this love in a photograph
We made these memories for ourselves
Where our eyes are never closing
Hearts are never broken
And time's forever frozen, still

So you can keep me
Inside the pocket of your ripped jeans
Holding me closer 'til our eyes meet
You won't ever be alone, wait for me to come home

Loving can heal, loving can mend your soul
And it's the only thing that I know, know
I swear it will get easier
Remember that with every piece of ya
Hmm, and it's the only thing we take with us when we die

Hmm, we keep this love in a photograph
We made these memories for ourselves
Where our eyes are never closing
Hearts were never broken
And time's forever frozen, still

So you can keep me
Inside the pocket of your ripped jeans
Holding me closer 'til our eyes meet
You won't ever be alone

And if you hurt me
That's okay, baby, only words bleed
Inside these pages, you just hold me
And I won't ever let you go
Wait for me to come home
Wait for me to come home
Wait for me to come home
Wait for me to come home

Oh, you can fit me
Inside the necklace you got when you were sixteen
Next to your heartbeat where I should be
Keep it deep within your soul

And if you hurt me
Well, that's okay, baby, only words bleed
Inside these pages, you just hold me
And I won't ever let you go

When I'm away, I will remember how you kissed me
Under the lamppost back on Sixth street
Hearing you whisper through the phone
"Wait for me to come home"

    My InterpretationThis song really speaks to my current situation. My boyfriend and I of nearly 2 years just split up 2 weeks ago. We had a wild ride while we were together but things got messy and while he tells me that he has to move on, I think he's leaving because he's scared. I know that's why he's leaving. We both did things in the relationship to hurt each other but one thing that remains the same is my unconditional love for him. This song is sort of my way of trying to move on and not be stuck in the pull of his love anymore.

    I want him to remember all of the good times and the reasons that we were together in the first place while he tries to get himself together. I will always keep him close to my heart and I know I will always love him. We see each other often and the fire is still there. We need to heel and we need to get better. Love can do that no matter what the situation.

    This song is stunning. I wish time was frozen to when things were simpler and we didn't let things get out of control. I have so many amazing memories with him that are making me hold on, so many plans and promises that I made to him that are making me stick around.
