This is a song I loved from when it came out with the movie, which is how I first heard it. I’m not normally a fan of Ed Sheeran, but this is glorious.
But it’s just a kind of song that speak to me, on several levels. It’s got all sorts of imagery (obviously, sorry) — but the fire…and the picture it brings to mind. It’s something that really resonates with me; I feel very comfortable with this type of music. It’s kind of sad, melancholy, and it just strikes at the feelings. But it’s also somehow, to me at least, kind of somewhat strong–choosing one’s own path in a way; even if it is a dark one.
And because I love lyrics: here.*
