In only 4 minutes and 34 seconds, viewers watch the spunk, personality and effortless appeal of Ed Sheeran evolve in his remarkable visual “Photographs.” From his first steps to his first live concert, you see the beautiful growth of this exceptionally talented artist. And then there’s the lyrics – prepare to melt into the ground beneath you because his words are just lovely.
“You can keep me inside the pocket of your ripped jeans. Holding me close till our eyes meet. You won’t ever be alone. Wait for me to come home.”
His music always makes me swoon. It enters a special place in the heart and makes it beat even harder through the sheer authentic honesty his sound possesses. This song definitely does not fail to incorporate that same magic. The power of a simple photograph can compel the individual through a whirlwind of emotions keeping the memory alive of how important someone is. Sheeran captures this power greatly in “Photographs” – it brings back the incredible effect one printed image can have on a person.
