Ed Sheeran – Castle On The Hill [Official Lyric Video]
Official Website: http://edsheeran.com

I’m on my way, driving at 90 down those country lanes
Singing to Tiny Dancer, And I miss the way you make me feel, and it’s real
….And I’m on my way, and I still remember those country lanes
When we did not know the answers, And I miss the way you make me feel, it’s real

Elton John – Tiny Dancer
Elton John in 1971.

Blue jean baby, L.A. lady, seamstress for the band
Pretty eyed, pirate smile, you’ll marry a music man
Ballerina, you must have seen her dancing in the sand
And now she’s in me, always with me, tiny dancer in my hand
….Hold me closer tiny dancer
Count the headlights on the highway
Lay me down in sheets of linen
You had a busy day today

One week in we let the story begin
We’re going out on our first date
You and me are thrifty
So go all you can eat
Fill up your bag and I fill up a plate
We talk for hours and hours about the sweet and the sour
And how your family’s doing ok
leave and get in a taxi, then kiss in the backseat
Tell the driver make the radio play
and I’m singing like
….Every day discovering something brand new
I’m in love with the shape of you

    ed-sheeran-album-logoWelcome to the new show
    I guess you know I’ve been away
    –Ed Sheeran

    From the new album ÷

    I was born inside a small town, I lost that state of mind
    Learned to sing inside the lord’s house
    But stopped at the age of nine
    I forget when I get awards now, the wave I had to ride
    The paving stones I played upon, that kept me on the grind
    So blame it on the pain that blessed me with the life
    Friends and family filled with envy, when they should be filled with pride
    And when the world’s against me, is when I really come alive
    And every day that Satan tempts me, I try to take it in my stride

    Ed Sheeran – Eraser [Official Audio]

    And all the ones that love me, they just left me on the shelf, no farewell
    So before I save someone else, I’ve got to save myself
    I gave you all my energy and I took away your pain
    Cause human beings are destined to radiate or drain
