It never threw me like this
ignored
A head buried in the sand
to retort.

If it ever came down
To be a man
Or break my fall

Peel back the skin again
So I know.

And I wait, and I wait, to live this damn thing out
And I wait, and I wait, to be the thing I never was before.

A head case
I can't refrain
All of my flaws

Rebound
Or rationalize
Just to stall

Well, I'm well aware
And I think you care
From your easy chair

Remission is all
that I can't afford.

And I wait, and I wait, to live this damn thing out
And I wait, and I wait, to be the thing I never was
And I wait, and I wait, to live this damn thing out
And I wait, and I wait, to be the thing I never was before.

And I wait, and I wait, to live this damn thing out
And I wait, and I wait, to be the thing I never was
And I wait, and I wait, to live this damn thing out
And I wait, and I wait, to be the thing I never was before.

    I think this song explains something hes going through after a long-term relationship. This song has personal value in that area. Its a very hurtful song but truthful.

Page
Ed Sheeran
There aren’t many things that’ll hurt more than giving love a chance against your better judgement only to have your heart crushed yet again. Ed Sheeran tells such a story on “Page.” On this track, he is devastated to have lost his lover and even more saddened by the feeling that he may never move on from this.

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.
