New York

If you were here beside me,
Instead of in New York
If the curve of you was curved on me
I’d tell you that I loved you
Before I even knew you
‘Cause I loved the simple thought of you
If our hearts had never broken
Well there’s no joy in the mending
So much this hurt can teach us both
There’s distance and there’s silence
Your words have never left me
They’re the prayer that I say every day

Come on, come out, come here, come here
Come on, come out, come here, come here
Come on, come out, come here, come here
Come on, come out, come here, come here

The lone neon lights
And the heat of the ocean
And the fire that had started to spark
I miss it all from the love to the lightning
And the lack of it snaps me in two

If you were here beside me
Instead of New York
In the arms you said you’d never leave
I’d tell you that it’s simple
And it was only ever thus
There is nowhere else that I belong

Come on, come out, come here, come here
Come on, come out, come here, come here
Come on, come out, come here, come here
Come on, come out, come here, come here

The lone neon lights
And the want of the ocean
And the fire that had started to spark
I miss it all from the love to the lightning
And the lack of it snaps me in two

Just give me a sign
There is end in a beginning
Til the quiet chaos driving me mad
The lone neon lights
And the want of the ocean
And the fire that had started to go out

Loving can hurt

Loving can hurt,
Loving can hurt sometimes but it is 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 this memories for ourselves where our eyes are never closing hearts are never broken times forever frozen still
So you can keep me inside the pocket of your ripped jeans holding me close until 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 is the only thing we take with us when we die
Mmmm…

You can keep me
Inside the necklace you bought when
you where sixteen
Next to your heartbeat where I should be
Keep it deep within your soul
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
When I’m aways 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

(Ed Sheeran “Photograph”)

If words alone could fix a broken wing

If words alone could fix a broken wing
Or mend another heart
Then all this talk could make it better

You brought me back up on the road
You brought my boat on into shore
You know it’s hard to thank you near enough

Fortune has its way
Of repaying
The love you give comes back to you
In a way that is far beyond words

If the world could be an open book
My life would be a word
A nice word if you use it gently

And now you see me as I am
Going through another phrase
You’re right there reading over my shoulder
