Ed Sheeran “Photograph” Lyrics

Loving can hurt

Loving can hurt sometimes
But it’s the only thing
That I know

And when it gets hard
You know it can get hard sometimes
It is the only thing that 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 times are forever frozen still

So you can keep me
Inside the pocket
Of your ripped jeans
Holdin’ 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 is the only thing
That I know (know)
I swear it will get easier
Remember that with every piece of ya
And it’s the only thing we take with us when we die

We keep this love in a photograph
We make these memories for ourselves
Where our eyes are never closing
Our hearts were never broken
And times forever frozen still

So you can keep me
Inside the pocket
Of your ripped jeans
Holdin’ me closer
Til our eyes meet
You won’t ever be alone

And if you hurt me
Well that’s ok 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 16
Next to your heartbeat
Where I should be
Keep it deep within your soul

And if you hurt me
Well that’s ok 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 6th street
Hearing you whisper through the phone
Wait for me to come home.

Nearly 11 months after Ed Sheeran released his 2014 studio album, x, he’s now got an official music video for the hit song “Photograph.” Watch above, as home videos play of Ed Sheeran’s formative years up through fairly current footage of him playing for huge crowds and goofing around backstage. Since being released yesterday, it’s already got over 1 million plays on YouTube.

Co-written with Snow Patrol’s Johny McDaid and produced by Jeff Bhasker and Emile Haynie, the track never sacrifices mood for style with a buildup that utilizes guitar, organ, piano, and drums, with glimpses of strings and vocal harmonies surfacing in the mix as well. Sheeran delivers a sense of optimism amongst the sentimental lyrics that build up into an outro featuring only the man and his guitar with the line, “Wait for me to come home,” before the song abruptly ends.

Pick up x (pronounced “multiply”) on Amazon (Vinyl, CD, MP3) or iTunes. You can also stream the full album and read our review here on Zumic.
