  • 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

  • Channing from ScI love this verse because I can relate to this song a lot in my life. Especially because I have a lot going on in my life with my boyfriend and I relate to this song.
