Ed Sheeran: Photograph Meaning
Under the lamppost back on Sixth street
Hearing you whisper through the phone,
"Wait for me to come home."

Ed wrote this song in a soldier's point of view ("wait for me to come home"). So the story goes by a soldier who left behind his or her love while he or she goes to war. Ed in this case is singing to his love telling them to wait for him to come home, and as they wait, he wants to remind them that they'll always be with them and that nothing changes like photographs ("where our eyes are never closing, hearts are never broken, time's forever frozen still…..*entire chorus"). I also figured it out when he said "and its the only thing We take with us when we die" and in most of the soldiers' cases, they bring with them photographs of their loved ones just in case and would want to look at them in their photograph.
If this song makes a music video, it would be appropriate to make a video about lovers who are in this case, one fighting while the other one waiting on them to come home.

I think it's about a girl that is feeling pain because they are away from each other so he is telling her "it's okay, just hold on to the picture of us where we are happy and there is no pain. I will be home soon." He wants her to keep the picture of them close to her so he will always be with her no matter the distance.
