(More Than Love)

Um Um Um, yeah
Um Um Um

And every morning I take a chance, it might not come around
But it?s maybe coming later
A preacher man on my t.v.
Says he?s got the streets for me
And prays it to the letter, yeah
And heavenly Father tell us how it?s gonna be
So that I can try to make it better
And restless bars and you and I suppose they are
For blowing it all away
That?s why I say, that?s why I say

You know it takes more than love to get it on
You know it takes more than strength to carry on, to carry on
And more than words to get it wrong
It takes more than love to get it on, to get it on, get it on, on, on, get it on

You?re making us crazy, they?re burnin? our bridges
Take them out one at a time
Goodbyes you know don?t come easy
Did you wanna go, for the thrill of it all
Why d?you wanna go when you had no reason
For blowin' it all away
That?s why I say, that?s why I say

You know it takes more than love to get it on
You know it takes more than strength to carry on, to carry on
And more than words to get it wrong
It takes more than love to get it on, to get it on, get it on, on, on, get it on

Ships are sailing and you know your aim is true
The figureheads have broken in your mind
You paint yourself a picture, then it turns to black and white
And sell it to the preacher one more time, yeah

You know it takes more than love to get it on
You know it takes more than strength to carry on, to carry on
And more than words to get it wrong
It takes more than love to get it on

More than love to get it on, baby
And more than strength to carry on, to carry on
And more than words to get it wrong
It takes more than love to get it on, to get it on, get it on, on, on, get it on, on

Plastic Bag
Ed Sheeran
“Plastic Bag” is a song about searching for an escape from personal problems and hoping to find it in the lively atmosphere of a Saturday night party. Ed Sheeran tells the story of his friend and the myriad of troubles he is going through. Unable to find any solutions, this friend seeks a last resort in a party and the vanity that comes with it. “I overthink and have trouble sleepin’ / All purpose gone and don’t have a reason / And there’s no doctor to stop this bleedin’ / So I left home and jumped in the deep end,” Ed Sheeran sings in verse one. He continues by adding that this person is feeling the weight of having disappointed his father and doesn’t have any friends to rely on in this difficult moment. In the second verse, Ed sings about the role of grief in his friend’s plight and his dwindling faith in prayer. “Saturday night is givin’ me a reason to rely on the strobe lights / The lifeline of a promise in a shot glass, and I’ll take that / If you’re givin’ out love from a plastic bag,” Ed sings on the chorus, as his friend turns to new vices in hopes of feeling better.
