Thinking Out Loud - Ed Sheeran



Free sheet music: Ed Sheeran - Thinking out loud.pdf


My favourite sentence from the lyrics is: Maybe we found love right where we are.


This song is the reason I’ve started this blog. I heard it on the radio about a year ago and it immediately caught my eye… or ear?!  Of course the next step was: find the song! It wasn’t hard because the song is catchy and the lyrcis, well… everything a girl wants to hear from her man. After I’ve watched the official video, I was surprised because I didn’t expect that this awesome voice belongs to ginger man, named Ed (by the way, he dressed as a ginger man, good one!). The dance choreography is really cool and I just love those lifts and passion and little details (such as leg guitar, spotlight heart, etc.).

A week after, the search for the sheet music wasn’t very successful. While I was playing unsatisfying piano arrangement, great idea popped into my head – I should write sheet music and I  should start thinking out loud. So here we are, with my first post.

Let me finish with a question: What is it about Ed’s song, that’s so delightful, is it a melody, harmony, rhythm, lyrics or his voice? For me it would definitely be the melody and his voice. 


At first I used lots of 16th notes, but than I doubled it to be easier to play. 


 

 



Lyrics:

 When your legs don't work like they used to before
 And I can't sweep you off of your feet
 Will your mouth still remember the taste of my love?
 Will your eyes still smile from your cheeks?

 And, darling, I will be loving you 'til we're 70
 And, baby, my heart could still fall as hard at 23
 And I'm thinking 'bout how people fall in love in mysterious ways
 Maybe just the touch of a hand
 Well, me—I fall in love with you every single day
 And I just wanna tell you I am

 So, honey, now
 Take me into your loving arms
 Kiss me under the light of a thousand stars
 Place your head on my beating heart
 I'm thinking out loud
 Maybe we found love right where we are

 When my hair's all but gone and my memory fades
 And the crowds don't remember my name
 When my hands don't play the strings the same way
 I know you will still love me the same

 'Cause, honey, your soul could never grow old, it's evergreen
 And, baby, your smile's forever in my mind and memory
 I'm thinking 'bout how people fall in love in mysterious ways
 Maybe it's all part of a plan
 Well, I'll just keep on making the same mistakes
 Hoping that you'll understand

 That, baby, now
 Take me into your loving arms
 Kiss me under the light of a thousand stars
 Place your head on my beating heart
 Thinking out loud
 Maybe we found love right where we are

 So, baby, now
 Take me into your loving arms
 Kiss me under the light of a thousand stars
 Oh, darling, place your head on my beating heart
 I'm thinking out loud
 But maybe we found love right where we are
 Oh, baby, we found love right where we are
 And we found love right where we are
