He wakes up
Sha-sha-shaking
With half a tooth missing
Lifts his head feels the aftermath kick in
Last night he was shining
And so entertaining
Today he is tired and wasted and grey
And each time he says he won't do it again
His head is a rhythm
And muscles start twitching
As he lights up a cigarette
Which does him no favours
Today like the others
He'll spend under the covers
And wait for the night to get up there again
And each time he says he won't do it again
But tonight you know that he'll do it again
And each time he says he won't do it again
But tonight you know that he'll do it again
And each time he says he won't do it again
But tonight you know that he'll do it again

Standing On The Edge Of Summer
Thursday
In regards to the meaning of this song: Before a live performance on the EP Five Stories Falling, Geoff states “It’s about the last time I went to visit my grandmother in Columbus, and I saw that she was dying and it was the last time I was going to see her. It is about realizing how young you are, but how quickly you can go.” That’s the thing about Geoff and his sublime poetry, you think it’s about one thing, but really it’s about something entirely different. But the lyrics are still universal and omnipresent, ubiquitous, even. So relatable. That’s one thing I love about this band. I also love their live performances, raw energy and Geoff’s beautiful, imperfectly perfect vocals. His voice soothes my aching soul.

Amazing

Ed Sheeran tells a story of unsuccessfully trying to feel “Amazing.” This track is about the being weighed down by emotional stress despite valiant attempts to find some positivity in the situation. This track was written by Ed Sheeran from the perspective of his friend. From the track, we see this person fall deeper into the negative thoughts and slide further down the path of mental torment with every lyric.
