Ode To Ed

Racing thoughts take me on a ride
So hard to put to rest once they start
Can’t slow ‘em down 
no matter what I try
Wanna turn down my brain 
and hear my heart

 

Gotta quiet my mind
Just let my soul unload
Clear my thoughts and drive
I need my guy and an open road

 

Give me “Supermarket Flowers”
and a “Photograph”
I’ll play some “Castle on the Hill” 
-I’ll be okay

Let the Tears fall in the front seat while my thoughts hop in the back
I rally faster with 
Ed Sheeran’s serenade


CHORUS
Give me a long and mindless drive
Just the sun, the wind, and speed
Sunglasses hiding my eyes
And no place that I have to be
Freewheeling my feelings I cry
With Ed Sheeran serenading me
Just Ed Sheeran serenading me

 

His melodies are like a comfort food
Magic music makes 
my problems melt away
Cry or sing whatever suits my mood
The highway soon becomes
my sacred space

 

Nothing brings me better clarity
Than the clever ginger 
playing his guitar
For me there’s no better therapy
Than Ed Sheeran blaring in my car
             
“I’ll Find a Love” and
a “Lego House”
Cause “Hearts 
don’t break around here”
Voices hush —the heart pours out
Obsessions and worries disappear
                 
REPEAT CHORUS

 

No runaway train of thoughts—
just the feels
Out here I’m free to clear my head
No need to explain behind the wheel
You see, your just what I needed
Yes, your just what I need, Ed.

 

Give me “Supermarket Flowers”
and a “Photograph”
I’ll play some “Castle on the Hill”
I’ll be okay
Let the Tears fall in the front seat while my thoughts hop in the back
I’ll rally faster with 
Ed Sheeran’s serenade

 

REPEAT CHORUS
