“Castle On The Hill” – Ed Sheeran
LYRICS

Ed Sheeran “Castle On The Hill” Lyrics

When I was six years old I broke my leg
I was running from my brother and his friends
tasted the sweet perfume of the mountain grass I rolled down
I was younger then, take me back to when I
Found my heart and broke it here, made friends and lost them through the years
And I’ve not seen the roaring fields in so long, I know, I’ve grown
but I can’t wait to go home

I’m on my way, driving at 90 down those country lanes
Singing to Tiny Dancer, And I miss the way you make me feel, and it’s real
When we watched the sunset over the castle on the hill

Fifteen years old and smoking hand rolled cigarettes
Running from the law through the backfields and getting drunk with my friends
Had my first kiss on a Friday night, I don’t reckon I did it right
I was younger then, take me back to when we found
Weekend jobs when we got paid and buy cheap spirits and drink them straight
Me and my friends have not thrown up in so long, oh how we’ve grown
I can’t wait to go home

I’m on my way, driving at 90 down those country lanes
Singing to Tiny Dancer, And I miss the way you make me feel, it’s real
When we watched the sunset over the castle on the hill
Over the castle on the hill
Over the castle on the hill
Over the castle on the hill

One friend left to sell clothes
One works down by the coast
One had two kids but lives alone
One’s brother overdosed
Ones already on his second wife
Ones just barely getting by
But these people raised me
And I can’t wait to go home

And I’m on my way, and I still remember those country lanes
When we did not know the answers, And I miss the way you make me feel, it’s real
When we watched the sunset over the castle on the hill
Over the castle on the hill
Over the castle on the hill

“Shape Of You” – Ed Sheeran
LYRICS

Ed Sheeran “Shape Of You” Lyrics

The club isn’t the best place to find a lover
So the bar is where I go
Me and my friends at the table doing shots drinking fast and then we talk slow
you come over and start up a conversation with just me and trust me I’ll give it a chance now
Take my hand stop, put van the man on the jukebox and then we start to dance
And now I’m singing like

Girl you know I want your love
Your love was handmade for somebody like me
Come on now follow my lead
I may be crazy don’t mind me
Say boy let’s not talk too much
Grab on my waist and put that body on me
Come on now follow my lead
Come come on now follow my lead

I’m in love with the shape of you
We push and pull like a magnet do
Although my heart is falling too
I’m in love with your body
Last night you were in my room
And now my bed sheets smell like you
Every day discovering something brand new
I’m in love with your body

Oh I
Oh I
Oh I
Oh I
I’m in love with your body
Oh I
Oh I
Oh I
Oh I
I’m in love with your body
Oh I
Oh I
Oh I
Oh I
I’m in love with your body
Every day discovering something brand new
I’m in love with the shape of you

One week in we let the story begin
We’re going out on our first date
You and me are thrifty
So go all you can eat
Fill up your bag and I fill up a plate
We talk for hours and hours about the sweet and the sour
And how your family’s doing ok
leave and get in a taxi, then kiss in the backseat
Tell the driver make the radio play
and I’m singing like

Girl you know I want your love
Your love was handmade for somebody like me
Come on now follow my lead
I may be crazy, don’t mind me
Say boy let’s not talk too much
Grab on my waist and put that body on me
Come on now follow my lead
Come come on now follow my lead

I’m in love with the shape of you
We push and pull like a magnet do
Although my heart is falling too
I’m in love with your body
Last night you were in my room
And now my bed sheets smell like you
Every day discovering something brand new

Well I’m in love with your body
Oh I
Oh I
Oh I
Oh I
I’m in love with your body
Oh I
Oh I
Oh I
Oh I
I’m in love with your body
Oh I
Oh I
Oh I
Oh I
I’m in love with your body
Every day discovering something brand new
I’m in love with the shape of you

Come on be my baby come on
Come on be my baby come on
Come on be my baby come on
Come on be my baby come on
Come on be my baby come on
Come on be my baby come on
Come on be my baby come on
Come on be my baby come on

I’m in love with the shape of you
We push and pull like a magnet do
Although my heart is falling too
I’m in love with your body
Last night you were in my room
And now my bed sheets smell like you
Every day discovering something brand new

Well I’m in love with your body
Come on be my baby come on
Come on be my baby come on
Come on be my baby come on
Come on be my baby come on
Come on be my baby come on
Come on be my baby come on
Every day discovering something brand new
I’m in love with the shape of you

“Castle On The Hill” features a driving rhythm supported with bass, drums, and Sheeran’s passionate vocal delivery. The “Tiny Dancer” lyric brings to mind Elton John’s 1972 classic.

“Shape Of You” has a Caribbean-type feel, with strong dance beats and sexy lyricism.

Although there’s been no official confirmation, these songs will likely be on Sheeran’s upcoming third full-length studio album, of which the musician said, “More news on the album coming very soon – but I can honestly say this is the best one I’ve written so far!”

Castle On The Hill” and “Shape Of You” are available to download on Amazon.
