Photograph by Nickelback is a nostalgic rock ballad that captures the essence of looking back on one's past and reminiscing about the good old days. The song's lyrics, delivered in a reflective tone, paint a vivid picture of the singer's youth, filled with moments of mischief, friendship, and youthful innocence.


{Verse No. 1}


Look at this photograph
Every time I do, it makes me laugh
How did our eyes get so red?
And what the hell is on Joey's head?
And this is where I grew up
I think the present owner fixed it up
I never knew we ever went without
The second floor is hard for sneaking out
And this is where I went to school
Most of the time had better things to do
Criminal record says I broke in twice
I must've done it half a dozen times
I wonder if it's too late
Should I go back and try to graduate?
Life's better now than it was back then
If I was them, I wouldn't let me in
{Pre-Chorus}
Oh, oh, oh
Oh, God, I, I


In the first verse, the narrator reflects on a photograph, triggering laughter and curiosity about the past. The lyrics depict a time of youthful rebellion, exploring abandoned buildings, sneaking out, and engaging in mischievous activities. The mention of Joey's unusual headgear and the innocence of childhood friendships adds a personal touch to the narrative.


{Verse No. 2}


Remember the old arcade?
Blew every dollar that we ever made
The cops hated us hangin' out
They say somebody went and burned it down
We used to listen to the radio
And sing along with every song we know
We said someday we'd find out how it feels
To sing to more than just the steering wheel
Kim's the first girl I kissed
I was so nervous that I nearly missed
She's had a couple of kids since then
I haven't seen her since God knows when


The second verse delves into the camaraderie shared with friends, reminiscing about carefree days spent in arcades and singing along to radio tunes. The mention of Kim, the first love, adds a sentimental layer to the song. The passage of time is evident as the narrator realizes how much has changed since those youthful days. Friends have moved on, life has taken unexpected turns, and the innocence of youth has faded into the background.

{Pre-Chorus}
Oh, oh, oh
Oh, God, I, I

{Chorus}
Every memory of looking out the back door
I had the photo album spread out on my bedroom floor
It's hard to say it, time to say it
Goodbye, goodbye
Every memory of walking out the front door
I found the photo of the friend that I was looking for
It's hard to say it, time to say it
Goodbye, goodbye
(Goodbye)

{Bridge}
I miss that town
I miss their faces
You can't erase
You can't replace it
I miss it now
I can't believe it
So hard to stay
Too hard to leave it
If I could relive those days
I know the one thing that would never change

{Chorus}
Every memory of looking out the back door
I had the photo album spread out on my bedroom floor
It's hard to say it, time to say it
Goodbye, goodbye
Every memory of walking out the front door
I found the photo of the friend that I was looking for
It's hard to say it, time to say it
Goodbye, goodbye

[Outro]
Look at this photograph
Every time I do, it makes me laugh
Every time I do, it makes me
