Life, ed sheeran wrote us a song

Posted on Updated on

So, recently I was driving and ed sheerans latest song came on the radio, thinking out loud. As I listened I enjoyed it, and the lyrics clicked into place. I then realised mr sheeran had written this song for my partner and I.

And this is why..

Ed Sheeran – Thinking Out loud

When your legs don’t work like they used to before
(Her legs no longer work so well, she’s a cripple after all)
And I can’t sweep you off of your feet
(My backs gone, so I have no chance of sweeping, plus with her bad legs she’s far more of a deadweight)
Will your mouth still remember the taste of my love
(Little miss codeine breath)
Will your eyes still smile from your cheeks
(She does get some beautiful dimples when she smiles)
And darling I will be loving you ’til we’re 70
(About right, I retire- assuming I go back to work) at 71 so I’ll likely die around 70)
And baby my heart could still fall as hard at 23
(This ones a rhyming number, not literal, I was about 25 when I met her, but five doesn’t rhyme so well)
And I’m thinking ’bout how people fall in love in mysterious ways
(Oh yes they do- “I love pus”)
Maybe just the touch of a hand
(It was more the touch of her fart on my hand, but that doesn’t translate well to a chart topping song)
Oh me I fall in love with you every single day
(She’s such a grump I really need to)
And I just wanna tell you I am
So honey now
Take me into your loving arms
Kiss me under the light of a thousand stars
Place your head on my beating heart
I’m thinking out loud
Maybe we found love right where we are
(It’s a chorus, mostly about falling in love, and she does occasionally sleep on my chest)
When my hair’s all but gone and my memory fades
(My hairs thinning, and my memory isn’t exactly what it was, she’s constantly grumping about things that have slipped my mind. I’m sure the line was hairs overgrown, which it also is)
And the crowds don’t remember my name
(My time as a carer for my partner restricts my time out in public, I’m out of any public eye)
When my hands don’t play the strings the same way, mm
(I played, now I don’t, I can’t play as well as i used to once upon a time)
I know you will still love me the same
(Somehow despite her grumping she still does)
‘Cause honey your soul can never grow old, it’s evergreen
(Given her fast ageing body it’s only fair to think something will stay youthful)
Baby your smile’s forever in my mind and memory
(Some things don’t fade from memory, special things)
I’m thinking ’bout how people fall in love in mysterious ways
Maybe it’s all part of a plan
(Im still convinced we were together as a part of some plan she had to make babies)
I just keep on making the same mistakes
Hoping that you’ll understand
(Yep, I do, normally forgetting about things she’s expecting me to remember)
But baby now
Take me into your loving arms
Kiss me under the light of a thousand stars
Place your head on my beating heart
I’m thinking out loud
That maybe we found love right where we are, oh
(Ah la la, la la la, la la la, la la la la)
So baby now
Take me into your loving arms
Kiss me under the light of a thousand stars
Oh darling, place your head on my beating heart
I’m thinking out loud
That maybe we found love right where we are
Oh maybe we found love right where we are
And we found love right where we are

No real comments can be made about the rest, except to say, despite everything I do love her.
