Perfect - Ed Sheeran




The Experience: I hope that someday I'll share her home... Respect, wonder, and hope are signs of something that could become true love...


Music video: Ed Sheeran and the love of his life - played by Zoey Deutch - share a dreamy ski vacation. It's a dream romance without the difficulties of life - but somehow that's alright... it's what everyone hopes their love will be. What everyone hopes love could be.

The Meaning of Perfect: The opposite of Shape of You. Ed Sheeran holds a delicate and respectful hope for love in his hands. In Perfect, Ed Sheeran is in love with a person. Someone stronger than anyone I know. Someone who can share his dreams. Someone to share a home with. Someone who can carry secrets, carry lovecarry our children. In front of all that, his response is humility and wonder - I don't deserve this.

Ask yourself: Do you respect them? Do you hope for a life spent with them? Do you love them?

Album: "÷" (2017)

LYRICS:

I found a love for me
Darling, just dive right in and follow my lead
Well, I found a girl, beautiful and sweet
Oh, I never knew you were the someone waiting for me

'Cause we were just kids when we fell in love
Not knowing what it was
I will not give you up this time
But darling, just kiss me slow
Your heart is all I own
And in your eyes you're holding mine

Baby, I'm dancing in the dark
With you between my arms
Barefoot on the grass
Listening to our favourite song
When you said you looked a mess
I whispered underneath my breath
But you heard it,
Darling, you look perfect tonight

Well, I found a woman, stronger than anyone I know
She shares my dreams, I hope that someday I'll share her home
I found a love to carry more than just my secrets
To carry love, to carry children of our own

We are still kids but we're so in love
Fighting against all odds
I know we'll be alright this time
Darling, just hold my hand
Be my girl, I'll be your man
I see my future in your eyes

Baby, I'm dancing in the dark
With you between my arms
Barefoot on the grass
Listening to our favourite song
When I saw you in that dress
Looking so beautiful
I don't deserve this
Darling, you look perfect tonight

Baby, I'm dancing in the dark
With you between my arms
Barefoot on the grass
Listening to our favourite song
I have faith in what I see
Now I know I have met an angel in person
And she looks perfect
I don't deserve this
You look perfect tonight
