Mooi voor later: "Supermarket Flowers - Ed Sheeran"

Mooie muziek en prachtige tekst. Ik ga er niet teveel over zeggen, iedereen heeft zijn eigen verhaal bij bepaalde nummers en ik vind het het mooi om dat zo te laten.

 

Het lied gaat over de oma van Ed, die erg ziek was toen hij zijn vorige album schreef. Oma is kort hierna overleden. Het lied is geschreven vanuit het oogpunt van Ed's moeder. De opa van Ed stond er vervolgens op dat hij het lied zou uitbrengen op het album Divide, omdat hij het zo mooi vond.

 

Dit is de volledige tekst van het nummer:

 

I took the supermarket flowers from the windowsill

I threw the day-old tea from the cup

Packed up the photo album Matthew had made

Memories of a life that's been loved

 

Took the "Get Well Soon" cards and stuffed animals

Poured the old ginger beer down the sink

Dad always told me, "Don't you cry when you're down."

But, mum, there's a tear every time that I blink

 

Oh, I'm in pieces. It's tearing me up but I know

A heart that's broke is a heart that's been loved

 

So, I'll sing Hallelujah,

You were an angel in the shape of my mum

When I fell down you'd be there holding me up

Spread your wings as you go

And when God takes you back

He'll say, "Hallelujah, you're home."

 

I fluffed the pillows, made the beds, stacked the chairs up

Folded your nightgowns neatly in a case

John said he'd drive, then put his hand on my cheek

And wiped a tear from the side of my face

 

And I hope that I see the world as you did 'cause I know

A life with love is a life that's been lived

 

So, I'll sing Hallelujah,

You were an angel in the shape of my mum

When I fell down you'd be there holding me up

Spread your wings as you go, when God takes you back

He'll say, "Hallelujah, you're home."

 

Hallelujah,

You were an angel in the shape of my mum

You got to see the person I have become

Spread your wings and I know

That when God took you back, he said, "Hallelujah, you're home."
