Whistling through the summertime
School can whistle for my return
I've got plans and I've got schemes
To live and I've love to burn
The girl I've got, she laughs a lot
She asks me what I mean
I paint the perfect picture
The deathbed of my dreams

Rocking, rolling, riding
We fell down the stairs
Found a note in her picture book
The deathbed of despair
Where's my girl? Where did she go?
I could not foresee
Seems so in the distance now
The deathbed of my dreams

To know what's right, to know what's real
Is simple if you're willing
To live and to die a man
Is just the same as living

The autumn wind brings me no chill
I lean towards it's warm embrace
The road it lies before us now
It runs beyond what's dealt by fate
My wife comes and holds me near
She looks at me and beams
I close my eyes, I reprise
The deathbed of my dreams

My wife comes and holds me near
She looks at me and beams
I close my eyes and I reprise
The deathbed of my dreams

Standing On The Edge Of Summer
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.

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”

This is a sequel to 2001's "Reckless Abandon", and features the band looking back on their clumsy youth fondly.

Ed Sheeran
How would you describe the feeling of being in love? For Ed Sheeran, the word is “Magical.” in HIS three-minute album opener, he makes an attempt to capture the beauty and delicacy of true love with words. He describes the magic of it all over a bright Pop song produced by Aaron Dessner.
