Sing - Ed Sheeran ft. Pharrell Williams



The Experience: Ed and his guitar describe waiting for the party to go away so he can finally be alone with his girl. Drinks take things farther than he intended, but he doesn't know what he's doing anymore anyway. 
Official Video: A puppet takes Ed's place, and tours the red light district. It's not clear what he actually sees or lives and what is simply hallucinations. While the video ends with Ed waking up after a hangover and a hooker, it remains turning women into just part of the puppet's fun, not people actually cared for.


The Meaning of Ed Sheeran's Sing is about waiting for love. In this case, it's waiting for a short time ("Everybody else, we wish they would disappear") Ed wants to take it further, but as he says, "I'm drunk" and so he doesn't know how to go on. ("I don’t really know what I’m supposed to say.") He just lets his girl take him wherever she wants - "Won't you set the tone?

Ask Yourself: What does 'waiting for love' really mean?


LYRICS:
It’s late in the evening
Glass on the side now
I’ve been sat with you
For most of the night
Ignoring everybody here
We wish they would disappear
So maybe we could get down now
And I don’t wanna know
If you’re getting ahead of the program
I want you to be mine, lady
To hold your body close
Take another step into the no-man’s land
For the longest time lady

I need you darling
Come on set the tone
If you feel you’re falling
Won’t you let me know
If you love me come on get involved
Feeling rushing through you from your head to toe

Sing!
Louder!
Sing!

This love is a blaze
I saw flames from the side of the stage
And the fire-brigade comes in a couple of days
Until then we got nothing to say and nothing to know
But something to drink and maybe something to smoke
Let it go until I wrote a change singing we found love in a local rage no
I don’t really know what I’m supposed to say 
But I can just figure it out and hope and pray
I told them my name and said 
It’s nice to meet ya and then she handed me 
A bottle of water filled with tequila
I already know she’s a keeper
Just from this one small act of kindness, I’m in deep
If anybody finds out I’m meant to drive home 
But I’m drunk and gonna live it now not?
We just sit on the couch 
One thing led to another now she’s kissing my mouth

I need you darling
Come on set the tone
If you feel you’re falling
Won’t you let me know
If you love me come on get involved
Feeling rushing through you from your head to toe

Sing!
Louder!
Sing!

Can you feel it? All the guys in here don’t really wanna dance
Can you feel it? All that I can hear is music from the back
Can you feel it? Found you hiding here so won't you take my hand darling
Before the beats kicks in again
Can you feel it?
Can you feel it?

I need you darling
Come on set the tone
If you feel you’re falling
Won’t you let me know
If you love me come on get involved
Feeling rushing through you from your head to toe

Sing!
