So long I've waited for you to come to me
Anticipated what I would say.
And no one could know how it feels to be
In your embrace again
So tender.
Yes
There were times I could not hold on

Each day that came a little more hope was gone.
I'd look into my heart to see what I had done

And now I can't believe
The day is finally come!

I am walking over the bridge of spies today

Freedom is only one more step away
You only have to hold me.

Take me to you!
Now the things we wanted
They're so far away it seems

Your love is a distant thing that I kept deep inside of me.
Now if I could show you where I lived in my fantasy

On the continent of dreams you'd be with me.
I don't know if I could go through it all again
For what's the point if you are never free to say.
This is what I believe
This is a part of me

No hero
No regrets
But only meant to be.

I am walking over the bridge of spies today
I am walking over the bridge of spies today

Hold me
Hold me! Hold me
Hold me!

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”

I think much like another song “Anti-Matter” (that's also on the same album as this song), this one is also is inspired by a horrifying van crash the band experienced on Nov 3, 2022. This, much like the other track, sounds like it's an extension what they shared while huddled in the wreckage, as they helped frontman Garrett Russell stem the bleeding from his head wound while he was under the temporary effects of a concussion. The track speaks of where the mind goes at the most desperate & desolate of times, when it just about slips away to all but disconnect itself, and the aftermath.

Ed Sheeran sings about missing his former partner and learning important life lessons in the process on “Punchline.” This track tells a story of battling to get rid of emotions for a former lover, whom he now realized might not have loved him the same way. He’s now caught between accepting that fact and learning life lessons from it and going back to beg her for another chance.

American Town
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran shares a short story of reconnecting with an old flame on “American Town.” The track is about a holiday Ed Sheeran spends with his countrywoman who resides in America. The two are back together after a long period apart, and get around to enjoying a bunch of fun activities while rekindling the flames of their romance.
