Thinking Out Loud

Thinking Out Loud

 

There’s a new song from Ed Sheeran’s X (Deluxe Edition) album that makes me “Kilig” (delightfully, giggly, giddy feeling) everytime I listen to it. I stumbled upon this song on Spotify and started to play it every so often. Like most of his other songs, it talks about his “love” for someone. He wants to grow old with this woman and he uses such romantic phrases to emphasize it.

As I ruminate the lyrics of the song, I want to own it, dedicate it to someone or, feel like it was dedicated to me. haha! Kidding!

The verses of the song describe how things will change throughout life. They will grow old. legs don’t work like they used to before… hair’s all but gone and my memory fades

They will become weak physically and their memories will eventually fade. But one thing is for sure, he is confident that she will still love him just the same.
When my hands don’t play the strings the same way
I know you will still love me the same

“Aging can be scary but growing old with your loved one is a blessing. “

Blessing – a wonderful gift from God. And Sharing your life with someone you love is indeed a blessing especially when God is involved in your relationship. As C.S. Lewis said, “Love that becomes a god, becomes a demon. Submit all your love, therefore, to the one that is Love.

And I’m thinking ’bout how people fall in love in mysterious ways
Maybe just the touch of a hand

And maybe it’s all part of a plan

They say falling in love is a magical experience. The circumstances under which people fall in love are so random and odd that sometimes you wonder if it is all planned. A simple change in someone’s day, like randomly deciding to take a walk, could mean that they meet the love of their life and change their world forever.

Yes, people fall in and out of love all the time, but that’s only because people believe that love is something to be found – a tangible thing that exists as an entity of its own. That it’s something that can be lost. This is such a sad definition of love.

“Falling in love maybe an accident, but staying in love is a decision”

Love is a decision. Choose to love and then refuse to let it slip away.

Well, me—I fall in love with you every single day
And I just wanna tell you I am.

This is just tooooooo sweeeeeeet. Please.

When he’s with this girl, he falls in love with her in all possible ways, not once in his life, but everyday he sees her.

“Love is not about how many days, months or years you’ve been together. Love is about how much you love each other EVERYDAY. -unknown”

One of my favorite lines is ‘Cause honey your soul could never grow old, it’s evergreen

Comparing her soul to “evergreen” was really touching. It’s like saying her soul is always going to be beautiful in his eyes… always. *blush*

And baby, your smile’s forever in my mind and memory
And I’m thinking about how

Referring back to the first line of the verse, even when Ed is losing his memory, he won’t forget even the smallest details about his girl.

And maybe we found love right where we are

Ed has found love in his imagination as he is hoping to have a relationship with a girl.

What are your thoughts about the song?

Anyway, here’s the full lyrics of the song. Enjoy 😉

“Thinking Out Loud”

When your legs don’t work like they used to before
And I can’t sweep you off of your feet
Will your mouth still remember the taste of my love?
Will your eyes still smile from your cheeks?And, darling, I will be loving you ’til we’re 70
And, baby, my heart could still fall as hard at 23
And I’m thinking ’bout how people fall in love in mysterious ways
Maybe just the touch of a hand
Well, me—I fall in love with you every single day
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
That maybe we found love right where we are

When my hair’s all but gone and my memory fades
And the crowds don’t remember my name
When my hands don’t play the strings the same way
I know you will still love me the same
‘Cause honey your soul could never grow old, it’s evergreen
And, baby, your smile’s forever in my mind and memory
I’m thinking ’bout how people fall in love in mysterious ways
Maybe it’s all part of a plan
Well, I’ll just keep on making the same mistakes
Hoping that you’ll understand

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
Thinking out loud
That maybe we found love right where we are

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, baby, we found love right where we are
And we found love right where we are
