"Even My Dad Does Sometimes" as written by and Amy Wadge Ed Sheeran....
It’s alright to cry
Even my dad does sometimes
So don’t wipe your eyes
Tears remind you you’re alive
It’s alright to die
'Cause death’s the only thing you haven’t tried
But just for tonight hold on

So live life like you’re giving all
'Cause you act like you are
Go ahead and just live it up
Go on and tear me apart

It’s alright to shake
Even my hand does sometimes
So inside the rage
Against the dying of the light
It’s alright to say that death’s the only thing you haven’t tried
But just for today hold on

So live life like you’re giving all
'Cause you act like you are
Go ahead and just live it up
Go on and tear me apart

Live life like you’re giving all
'Cause you act like you are
Go ahead and just live it up
Go on and tear me apart
And hold on

    My InterpretationTo me this song is the singer trying to comfort someone who feels the need to commit suicide, telling them:
    It's alright to cry
    Even my dad does sometimes
    So don't wipe your eyes
    Tears remind you you're alive
    It's alright to die
    'Cause death's the only thing you haven't tried
    But then tells them how wrong it seems, to kill themselves, because of how many people it would harm, including the singer:
    But just for tonight hold on

    So live life like you're giving up
    'Cause you act like you are
    Go ahead and just live it up
    Go on and tear me apart

    He then says much of the same through the rest of the song, but not without saying how she's 'tearing him apart, so just hold on':
    It's alright to shake
    Even my hand does sometimes
    So inside the rage
    Against the dying of the light
    It's alright to say that death's the only thing you haven't tried
    But just for today hold on

    So live life like you're giving up
    'Cause you act like you are
    Go ahead and just live it up
    Go on and tear me apart hold on

    Live life like you're giving up
    'Cause you act like you are
    Go ahead and just live it up
    Go on and tear me apart hold on
