There's a wolf that preys on a world
That strays so far from the Garden
And just like your own
Every heart you know seems cold and hardened
You may not have the stage, but you still have a voice
You may not have the strength, but if you have a choice

I dare you to love
I dare you to love

We're all full of hope, trying to stay afloat, trying to save one another
People let you drown 'cause they don't know how to stay above water
When they're too broken to know what they've put you through
Do the only thing that you'd want done to you

I dare you to love
Oh, I dare you to love

Even if you're hurt and you can only see the worst
Even if you think it's not enough

Oh, I dare you to love
I dare you to love

The darkest night can never hide the brightest star
The one thing you can do no matter who you are

I dare you to love, even if you can't
No, I dare you to love

Even if you're hurt
And you can only see the worst
Even if you think it's not enough

Oh, I, I dare you, I dare you
Oh, I dare you to love

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.

Ed Sheeran
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.

Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran tells a story of unsuccessfully trying to feel “Amazing.” This track is about the being weighed down by emotional stress despite valiant attempts to find some positivity in the situation. This track was written by Ed Sheeran from the perspective of his friend. From the track, we see this person fall deeper into the negative thoughts and slide further down the path of mental torment with every lyric.
