Music Monday- Ed Sheeran "Thinking Out Loud"

Oh- this song!  It's Ed Sheeran's best one by far in my opinion.  "Thinking Out Loud".  So sweet, and soulful.

I listened to this song on a loop over and over and over again in my car the other night.   I love the sentiment of a love that grows old.  At first, when I heard him sing that line, "And darling I will be loving you 'til we're 70"- I thought, "Hey, 70 isn't so very old!  How 'bout 90, Ed?", but of course, that number doesn't sing as pretty.  And then it dawned on me that although my parents had a life lasting love, Dad didn't get to love Mom 'til she was 70...altho he certainly would have had we not lost her at her when she was only 69.  But when Mom died, she wasn't even close to being old.  So really, although I love this song, I hope I'm lucky enough to be loved long past 70...  Just sayin'.

The "official video" was having some problems so I'm posting this acoustic version instead.  Hopefully you've heard the studio version before, but if not, keep your ear out for it.  It's better than this version... 


When your legs don't work like they used to before
And I can't sweep you off of your feet
Will your mouth still remember the taste of my love
Will your eyes still smile from your cheeks
And darling I will be loving you 'til we're 70
And baby my heart could still fall as hard at 23
And I'm thinking 'bout how people fall in love in mysterious ways
Maybe just the touch of a hand
Oh me I fall in love with you every single day
And I just wanna tell you I am
So honey now
Take me into your loving arms
Kiss me under the light of a thousand stars
Place your head on my beating heart
I'm thinking out loud
Maybe we found love right where we are
When my hair's all but gone and my memory fades
And the crowds don't remember my name
When my hands don't play the strings the same way, mm
I know you will still love me the same
'Cause honey your soul can never grow old, it's evergreen
Baby your smile's forever in my mind and memory
I'm thinking 'bout how people fall in love in mysterious ways
Maybe it's all part of a plan
I'll just keep on making the same mistakes
Hoping that you'll understand
But baby now
Take me into your loving arms
Kiss me under the light of a thousand stars
Place your head on my beating heart
I'm thinking out loud
That maybe we found love right where we are, oh
So baby now
Take me into your loving arms
Kiss me under the light of a thousand stars
Oh darling, place your head on my beating heart
I'm thinking out loud
That maybe we found love right where we are
Oh maybe we found love right where we are
And we found love right where we are
