Afire love

Has anyone heard this song by Ed Sheeran?

Things were all good yesterday
And then the devil took your memory
And if you fell to your death today
I hope that heaven is your resting place
I heard the doctors put your chest in pain
But then that could’ve been the medicine
And now you’re lying in the bed again
Either way I’ll cry with the rest of themAnd my father told me, “Son
It’s not his fault he doesn’t know your face
And you’re not the only one”
Although my grandma used to say
That he used to sing

Darling, hold me in your arms the way you did last night
And we’ll lie inside for a little while here, oh
I could look into your eyes until the sun comes up
And we’re wrapped in light and life and love
Put your open lips on mine and slowly let them shut
For they’re designed to be together, oh
With your body next to mine, our hearts will beat as one
And we’re set alight, we’re afire love
Love, love

And things were all good yesterday
But then the devil took your breath away
And now we’re left here in the pain
Black suit, black tie, standing in the rain
And now my family is one again
Stapled together with the strangers and a friend
Came to my mind, I should paint it with a pen
Six years old, I remember whenAnd my father told me, “Son
It’s not his fault he doesn’t know your face
And you’re not the only one”
Although my grandma used to say
That he used to sing

Darling, hold me in your arms the way you did last night
And we’ll lie inside for a little while here, oh
I could look into your eyes until the sun comes up
And we’re wrapped in light and life and love
Put your open lips on mine and slowly let them shut
For they’re designed to be together, oh
With your body next to mine, our hearts will beat as one
And we’re set alight, we’re afire love


Love, love
See the love, the love, the love, the love
See the love, the love, the love, the love
See the love, the love, the love, the loveAnd my father and all of my family
Rise from their seats to sing hallelujah
And my mother and all of my family
Rise from their seats to sing hallelujah
And my brother and all of my family
Rise from their seats to sing hallelujah
(To my brother and my sister, yeah, ah)
And my father and all of my family
Rise from their seats to sing hallelujahTo the love, the love, the love, the love
To the love, the love, the love, the love
To the love, the love, the love, the love

It’s a very comforting and moving song, if that’s what you need right now. Enjoy and… grace xxx

Alanis: How ’bout getting off of these antibiotics?
How ’bout stopping eating when I’m full up?
How ’bout them transparent dangling carrots?
How ’bout that ever elusive kudo? Thank you India
Thank you terror
Thank you disillusionment
Thank you frailty
Thank you consequence
Thank you thank you silence How ’bout me not blaming you for everything?
How ’bout me enjoying the moment for once?
How ’bout how good it feels to finally forgive you?
How ’bout grieving it all one at a time?

Sophie: How ’bout getting off of your iPad?
How ’bout stopping working for a chat when I’m fed up?
How ’bout them transparent hydrogen car engines?
How ’bout that ever elusive Amazon e-scooter? Thank you Jeff Bezos
Thank you Netflix for disillusionment
Thank you election democracy frailty
Thank you no consequence

How ’bout me not blaming China for COV-19 everything?
How ’bout me enjoying the fresh air for once?
How ’bout how good it feels to finally clear out ….all that grieving ..it all in one?
