“I’ve seen persons with different faces, and bigness, and smells, talking all together. The world’s like all TV planets on at the same time, so I don’t know which way to look and listen. There’s doors and… more doors. And behind all the doors, there’s another inside, and another outside.”
Everyone’s being sentimental as fuck about X being over, so here’s my thoughts on that beautiful album before it’s too late.
I will never forgive Ed for the beautiful way in which the songs are arranged. I don’t know if he did it entirely on purpose or not, but I love it, it makes me so happy :)
It starts off with a song that’s fairly similar to the ones on +, as if it’s a last goodbye to that album and then on to the next one.
Then there’s I’m a Mess, which pretty much sums up the entire album, so for it to come right after the ‘goodbye to +’ literally breaks my heart.
Then there are a load of songs that are basically reasons why he’s a mess; a crazy fucked-up party, a cheating girl he thought he loved, the thought of a teenage love, being alone while touring, drugs and alcohol and terrible insecurities.
And then there’s Tenerife Sea. Just one sweet, happy song in the midst of all these heartbreakers. Maybe because being with Beth was one of the only good things going on for him right then, but in reality we all know it’s Sweeran as fuck and it’s because Taylor just makes Ed really happy.
But after that we go back to the sad miserable songs. Remembering roughing it after leaving home, finally being able to voice his anger over the first girl he ever really loved.
And Thinking Out Loud. After everything that went wrong it’s ok again now, because it was pretty much a last minute song, so after being sad throughout the rest of the album this awesome song pretty much sums up Ed’s mood for the entire X era.
But let’s not forget the very last track, Afire Love. Because everyone can relate to that. Not everyone goes to crazy parties and has their heart broken all over the world and runs away from home. But everyone’s mortal. Everyone knew someone’s who’s dead now. Even this man who just produced an album with nothing but sheer talent and determination.
X is truly amazing and means the world to me, but I can’t wait to see what’s coming next! x
