Inside the Pocket of Your Ripped Jeans

Loving can hurt, loving can hurt sometimes
But it's the only thing that I know
When it gets hard, you know it can get hard sometimes
It is the only thing that makes us feel alive



Loving can heal, loving can mend your soul
And it's the only thing that I know, know
I swear it will get easier,
Remember that with every piece of you
And it's the only thing we take with us when we die


We keep this love in a photograph
We made these memories for ourselves
Where our eyes are never closing
Hearts are never broken
And time's forever frozen still

So you can keep me
Inside the pocket of your ripped jeans
Holding me closer 'til our eyes meet
You won't ever be alone

And if you hurt me
That's okay baby, only words bleed
Inside these pages you just hold me
And I won’t ever let you go
Wait for me to come home

You can fit me
Inside the necklace you got when you were sixteen
Next to your heartbeat where I should be
Keep it deep within your soul

When I'm away, I will remember how you kissed me
Under the lamppost back on Sixth street
Hearing you whisper through the phone,
"Wait for me to come home."


Photograph - Ed Sheeran.




You look so wonderful in your dress
I love your hair like that
The way it falls on the side of your neck
Down your shoulders and back

We are surrounded by all of these lies
And people who talk too much
You got the kind of look in your eyes
As if no one knows anything but us


You look so beautiful in this light
Your silhouette over me
The way it brings out the blue in your eyes
Is the Tenerife Sea

And all of the voices surrounding us here
They just fade out when you take a breath
Just say the word and I will disappear
Into the wilderness

Should this be the last thing I see
I want you to know it's enough for me
'Cause all that you are is all that I'll ever need

I'm so in love, so in love
So in love, so in love

Lumière, darling
Lumière over me

You look so wonderful in your dress
I love your hair like that
And in a moment I knew you, Beth



Tenerife Sea - Ed Sheeran



Jadi ceritanya baru dengerin albumnya Ed Sheeran yang "X" pake headset panasonic super yoi malem-malem. Dan yaa dari dulu emang headset satu ini paling jagoan. Suaranya bersih sekali, jadi kebawa suasana lagu-lagunya.

Saya baca satu-satu liriknya. Dua lirik di atas ini rasanya sederhana namun manis sekali.

Penyusunan alur, tema lirik, dan pemilihan kata-kata lagu-lagu Ed Sheeran sangat mengingatkan saya pada gaya lirik lagu-lagu Jason Mraz, si tukang bikin lagu over productive favorit sepanjang masa. Ditambah detil-detil sederhana yang menguatkan, lalu makna-makna tersirat yang sengaja dibuat agar susah dipahami, wah mirip sekali mereka ini. Mungkin yang sedikit membedakan, milik Ed Sheeran terdengar lebih lugas.

Ah, sepertinya saya menemukan satu lagi penyusun lirik jagoan!
