Ed Sheeran – All of the stars

Dit ontroerende lied schreef singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran voor de film ‘The Fault in Our Stars’. Een film over twee tieners die beiden getroffen zijn door de ziekte kanker en ondanks deze rotziekte liefde vinden bij elkaar.

Verdriet en geluk

Zelf zegt Ed Sheeran over het nummer: ‘De lied is geïnspireerd door de hele film. Het verdriet, maar ook de gelukkige momenten.’

Songtekst

It’s just another night
And I’m staring at the moon
I saw a shooting star
And thought of you
I sang a lullaby
By the waterside and knew
If you were here
I’d sing to you
You’re on the other side
As the skyline splits in two
Miles away from seeing you

But I can see the stars from America
I wonder, do you see them too?

So open your eyes and see
The way our horizons meet
And all of the lights will lead
Into the night with me
And I know these scars will bleed
But both of our hearts believe
All of these stars will guide us home

I can hear your heart
On the radio beat
They’re playing ‘Chasing Cars’
And I thought of us
Back to the time
You were lying next to me
I looked across and fell in love
So I took your hand
Back through lamp-lit streets and knew
Everything led back to you

So can you see the stars over Amsterdam?
Hear the song my heart is beating to?

So open your eyes and see
The way our horizons meet
And all of the lights will lead
Into the night with me
And I know these scars will bleed
But both of our hearts believe
All of these stars will guide us home

And, oh, I know
And oh, I know, oh
And I know oh oh oh

I can see the stars from America
