[Verse]
Loving can [C] hurt
Loving can [Am] hurt sometimes
But it’s the [G] only thing that I know [F]
When it gets [C] hard
You know it can get [Am] hard sometimes
It is the [G] only thing that makes us feel alive [F]

[Pre-Chorus]
[Am] We keep this love in a [F] photograph
[C] We make these memories [G] for ourselves
Where our [Am] eyes are never closing
Our [F] hearts were never broken
And [C] times forever frozen [G] still

[Chorus]
So you can [C] keep me inside the pocket of your
[G] Ripped jeans holding me closer till our
[Am] Eyes meet, you won’t ever be [F] alone
Wait for me to come home [C]

[Verse]
Loving can [C] heal
Loving can [Am] mend your soul
And it’s the [G] only thing that I know [F]
I swear it will get [C] easier
Remember that with every [Am] piece of you
And it’s the [G] only thing that we take with us when we die [F]

[Pre-Chorus]
[Am] We keep this love in a [F] photograph
[C] We make these memories [G] for ourselves
Where our [Am] eyes are never closing
Our [F] hearts were never broken
And [C] times forever frozen [G] still

[Chorus]
So you can [C] keep me inside the pocket of your
[G] Ripped jeans holding me closer till our
[Am] Eyes meet, you won’t ever be [F] alone

[Bridge]
And if you [C] hurt me well that’s ok baby, only
[G] Words bleed inside these pages you just
[Am] Hold me and I won’t ever let you [F] go

[Interlude]
Wait for me to come [Am] home
Wait for me to come [F] home
Wait for me to come [C] home
Wait for me to come [G] home

[Outro]
Oh you can [C] fit me inside the necklace you got when you were
[G] sixteen next to your heartbeat where I
[Am] Should be, keep it deep within your [F] soul
And if you [C] hurt me that’s ok baby only
[G] words bleed inside these pages you just
[Am] Hold me and I won’t ever let [F] you go

When I’m [C] away I will remember how you
[G] Kissed me under the lamp post back [Am] on sixth street
Hearing you whisper through the [F] phone
Wait [G] for me to come home
