As the release of his next album draws closer and closer, Ed Sheeran continues to tease us with amazing new singles. Today, he released a beautiful ballad called "Afire Love." Listen above via YouTube and be prepared to cry.

Much like "Small Bump" from his debut album, +, "Afire Love" is an emotionally charged song about the tragic loss of a loved one. "And if you fell to your death today / I hope that heaven is your resting place" and "Things were all good yesterday / Then the devil took your breath away" are just a few of the tear-jerking lyrics featured on the track. With beautiful strings and a full-on gospel choir on the hook, this song is sure stir up some heavy feelings. Awesome job, Ed Sheeran.

"Afire Love" - Ed Sheeran Lyrics:

Things were all good yesterday
And then the devil took your memory
And if you fell to your death today
I hope that heaven is your resting place
I heard the doctors put your chest in pain
But then that could've been the medicine
And now you're lying in the bed again
Either way I'll cry with the rest of them

[Pre-Chorus]
And my father told me
"Son, it's not his fault he doesn't know your face
And you're not the only one"
Although my grandma used to say he used to sing

[Chorus]
Darling, hold me in your arms the way you did last night
And we'll lie inside for a little while here, oh
I could look into your eyes until the sun comes up
And we're wrapped in the light, in life, in love
Put your open lips on mine and slowly let them shut
For they're designed to be together, oh
With your body next to mine, our hearts will beat as one
And we're set alight, we're afire love

And things were all good yesterday
But then the devil took your breath away
And now we're left here in pain
Black suit, black tie, standing in the rain
And now my family is one again
Stapled together with the strangers and a friend
Look into my mind, I should paint it with a pen
Six years old, I remember when

[Pre-Chorus]

[Chorus]

[Bridge]
And my father and all of my family
Rise from their seats to sing hallelujah
And my father and all of my family
Rise from their seats to sing hallelujah
And my brother and all of my family
Rise from their seats to sing hallelujah
And my father and all of my family
Rise from their seats to sing hallelujah

[Outro]
