We're at the top of the world, you and I.
We've got a lot of time and it sure feels right.
Cause you reached in your pocket
And pulled out a pass, says you can take me anywhere.

Sha la la la sha la la la sha la la la la la la (x3)
Sha la la la sha la la la la la la

We're on the top of the world, here tonight.
We've got a lot of time and it sure feels right.
Cause I'm up here running behind you.
I'm up here running in repeat.

Sha la la la sha la la la sha la la la la la la (x4)

Were at the top of the world, you and I.
We've got a lot of time and it sure feels right. cause
You reached in your pocket and pulled out a pass...
You can take me AnywheEeEere

You can take me anywhere (x4)

Sha la la la sha la la la sha la la la la la la (x6)
Yeah yeah yeah yeah you can take me anywhere (x4)
Sha la la la, sha la la la la la la

Overall about difficult moments of disappointment and vulnerability. Having hope and longing, while remaining optimistic for the future. Encourages the belief that with each new morning there is a chance for things to improve. The chorus offers a glimmer of optimism and a chance at a resolution and redemption in the future. Captures the rollercoaster of emotions of feeling lost while loving someone who is not there for you, feeling let down and abandoned while waiting for a lover. Lost with no direction, "Now I'm up in the air with the rain in my hair, Nowhere to go, I can go anywhere" The bridge shows signs of longing and a plea for companionship. The Lyrics express a desire for authentic connection and the importance of Loving someone just as they are. "Just in passing, I'm not asking. That you be anyone but you”

“Blue” is a song about a love that is persisting in the discomfort of the person experiencing the emotion. Ed Sheeran reflects on love lost, and although he wishes his former partner find happiness, he cannot but admit his feelings are still very much there. He expresses the realization that he might never find another on this stringed instrumental by Aaron Dessner.

Ed Sheeran
“Midnight” is a song about finding a love that is so true that it provides a calming feeling through every storm. Ed Sheeran reflects on his good fortunes in landing someone with such peace and support and speaks of not fearing the dark days because he knows they’ll all end in the safety nets of her arms. “Well, good morning there / What a way to start the day / With everything laid bare,” Ed Sheeran sings in the first verse, enthusiastic to be waking up beside his woman. He apologizes for missing her calls in the second verse and promises to return them because for him, speaking to her is the most important thing. “Well, I get lost inside my head / In this chaos, you’re my calm / And I will find my feet again / ‘Cause еven the worst days of my life will always еnd / At midnight in your arms,” sings Ed Sheeran in the chorus, revelling in his good luck.
