The song ‘Thinking Out Loud’ by Ed Sheeran – Maria’s goosebump moment
“Hello! My name is Maria, I’m from Cook Islands, and today I’m going to tell you the story of a dream that came true in 2017 when I finally saw Ed Sheeran live in concert. It was definitely one of the best moments of my life because I can remember precisely two goosebumps moments, two specific moments. The first one was when he showed up in the scenario I thought maybe I cried because I was so happy, he’s one of my favorite artists, I was seeing him singing for the first time in my life. And the other moment was when he sang ‘Thinking Out Loud’, one of my favorite songs for no specific reason, but it was so nice listening to him performing. Light, show, everything was perfect.”
The Ideal Song for a Romantic Evening
The lyrics of ‘Thinking Out Loud’ see Ed Sheeran talking about loving his partner against all odds. While questioning if his lover’s affection for him will fade over time, he promises that he will love her until they’re as old as seventy and maintain his zeal like a twenty-three-year-old in love.
The singer goes on to use several gestures to describe how he wants his significant other to act when they are together, constantly assuring her that his love will stand the test of time. For him, his feelings for her will never fade even if his body and physical strength grow weak by the day. In the second verse, the writer becomes more confident that his partner will return the affection and love him the same.
He admits that like many relationships, they will make their own mistakes, but the essential thing is to survive them all and grow stronger in their commitment to one another. As the title implies, these may be the thoughts running through his head constantly, but he vocalizes them just to assure his partner that the kind of love they have is real and will last.
