Bless this man!
I’ll just get this out of the way that yeah I know I haven’t been posting, but sorry school is been hectic and also a lot of drama happing etc.
But none of that bs matters cause the man himself Ed Sheeran came and saved the day, actually the whole year so far.
I have been listening to it all day and thought I share my thoughts with you guys.
So the first so is ´´Eraser´´ -In this song his more rapping or talking not really singing, only the chorus. His talking about how hard it’s to live when you are famous and everybody is watching you every move and how he would like to erase somethings like his pain. He says ´´I’ll find comfort in my pain, eraser“
2. ´´Castel on the Hill“ -Ed is singig about how he remembers his childhood and how it affected him and how much he misses it. It has a good melody and is a danceable song, but diffrent from the up beat pop song you hear in the club. I really like it, it remindes me of my childhood and how much I appreciate my friends and everything we do.
3. ´´Dive´´ -Dive is a nice slow dance song what is ironic that the song is about taking this too fast. It’s a love song about where a girl is playing with the boys emotions, but the boy is head over heels for her. There is a really nice eletric guitar part in the middle that adds so much to the song. I would really like to share a slow dance with someone I really care about to this song.
4. ´´Shape of You´´ -Uh, shape of you. Great beat, great words. It’s also a love song, but more of the physical part of love and not in the pop 21 century way (ASSS,BOOTY,BOOBS).I can imagine people grinding on eachother in the club to this song and just enyoing every + side there is in love.
5.´´Perfect´´ -A very beautiful slow love song. His sing about a woman who is perfect for her. There is no more words needed it just so beautiful and I shead a tear the first time I heard it. He says that they are dancing in the dark, he doesn’t see her, but she still knows that she looks perfect.
6. ´´Galway Girl´´ -Again a more rapping/talking song. It has this Irish vibe and a flute playing in the backround and no wonder because the song is about an Irish girl that he met in city Galway bar where she was playing the flute. He sings about the night they had and how great she was. The Irish vibe is really nice and I kinda wanna go to Ireland now and to a bar.
7.´´Happier“ -The song is about a break up. He sees his ex in a park a month later and she’s happier without him, but he is unhappier with her. For me it’s song about real life break ups that a guy hurts a girl and then the girl finds a guy who makes her happy and then the guy realises what he is missing and that he actually needs her, but the girl is happier then ever and has moved on. Slow, but powerful and a sad melody.
8.´´New man“ -Another song about where a girl has new man. The new man is really wannabe pop and trendy. Goes to the gym eats like super healty foods and has tattos, plucks his eyebrows etc. The girl seems happy but still calls the other dude and actually misses their relationship. It has a nice beat and Ed is also taliking more than singing and in the end there is this modern solution where Ed’s voice is modified, like something you hear when somebody is behind the DJ stand and hah ”wiki, wikis” the plates. I know I’m great at expleing thing I wanna say.
9.´´Hearts Don’t Break´´ -Also a very good slow love song by Ed. He’s singing how hearts don’t breake around here meaning that the love they have will never break and their hearts won’t get hurt. I just get a summer vibe when he sings about diffrent flowers and lighthouses.
10.´´What Do I know?´´ -My second favorite song from the album. When you hear this you just wanna clap along and move and sing and laugh. He’s singing how there are a lot of problems in the world, but we forget that we have to love ourselves and other and just think positivly. ”Love can change the world in a moment, but what do I know?”, says Ed Sheeran in his song and it’s so true. We should just take time off sometimes and get together and sing, laugh,dance and just talk to eachother.
11.´´ How would you Feel (Pean) ´´ -Ed Sheeran is a master when it becomes to slow love song that everyone can relate to. He sings about what would the other person feel when he says that he loves them. It’s scary to say ”I love You”to someone, you don’t know how they are gonna react and are they going to say it back. I just love the melody of this song so much and the guitar solo in the middle is just the cherry on top.
12.´´Supermarket Flowers´´ -It’s the saddest song on the album for me. I literally cired the whole song. It’s just Ed and a piano and in the chorus there is a choir singing. He sings about his grandmother dieing and how she’s in heaven and she is an angle and will always be ther for him. It’s hard to pack up all the memories and how he tries not to cry, but sometimes it’s okey to cry. Hallelujah
13.´´Barcelona´´ -God, I miss summer so much. Such a fun song and just makes me wanna fly to Barcelona and be under the sun and dance. Mamasita, whuu, tuh, tuh, tuh, feel the summer breez…..
14.´´Bibia Be Ye Ye´´ -All the summer vibes tho, It means everything will be alright in Ghanian. He went there in June 2016 where he supposedly recorded the song. So yeah just happy vibes all the way and be true to yourslef.
15.´´Nancy Mulligan” -Another Irish vibe song about a girl named Nancy Mulligan. Songs about their life, how they got married, their children etc. Again just somebody take me to Ireland and to a Pub.
16.´´Save Myself´´ -My absolute favorite song from the album. I just relate to this song so much. He sings about how he tries to save everyone else, but he tries to save himself as well, but sometimes saving a stranger is so much easier than saving yourself. But it doesn’t matter how many people you save, you are still fighting with yourself ” Between the devil and the danger”. I know the feeling when he says that all the ones who loved him left him on the shelf.
THANK YOU SO MUCH ED FOR THIS AMAZING ALBUM!!!!!!! It literally made my week and just lets be forget about all of the bullshit that is going on.
