16 Underrated Lines From Ed Sheeran's "Divide"

16 Underrated Lines From Ed Sheeran's "Divide"

I have always loved Ed Sheeran's lyrics and this newest album did not disappoint.

I have been listening to "Divide" on repeat for the past week and there have been a few times when I wondered why I haven't gotten tired of it yet. I finally realized that it was because of the incredible variety of songs that showcase the true extent of Ed Sheeran's musical ability. He has the ability to smoothly transition from songs about falling in love into ones about the struggles of making a life for himself. Somehow, these songs are all equally mesmerizing and understandable. I decided to compile a list of what I think are the best, but most underrated lines from the songs on "Divide."

1. "Eraser"

"When the world's against me is when I really come alive and everyday that Satan tempts me, I try to take it in my stride."

2. "Castle on the Hill"

"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."

3. "Dive"

"I've been known to give my all, sitting back, looking at every mess that I made."

4. "Shape of You"

"Your love was handmade for somebody like me."

5. "Perfect"

"When you said you looked a mess, I whispered underneath my breath, but you heard it. Darling, you look perfect tonight."

6. "Galway Girl"

"I swear I'm going to put you in a song that I write about a Galway girl and a perfect night."

7. "Happier"

"I saw that both your smiles were twice as wide as ours. Yeah you look happier, you do."

8. "New Man"

"But still, I'm just keeping it real, still looking at your Instagram and I'll be creeping a little. I'll be trying not to double tap, from way back, cause I know that's where the trouble's at."

9. "Hearts Don't Break Around Here"

"Took my heart upon a one way trip, guess she went wandering off with it. Unlike most women I know, this one will bring it back whole."

10. "What do I Know?"

"You know, the future's in the hands of you and me. So let's all get together, we can all be free. Spread love and understanding, positivity."

11. "How Would You Feel (Paean)"

"We were sat upon our best friend's roof. I had both of my arms round you, watching the sunrise replace the moon."

12. "Supermarket Flowers"

"I took the supermarket flowers from the windowsill, threw the day old tea from the cup, packed up the photo album Matthew had made- memories of a life that's been loved."

13. "Barcelona"

"I fell in love with the sparkle in the moonlight reflected in your beautiful eyes, I guess that is destiny doing it right."

14. "Bibia Be Ye Ye"

"I get lonely and make mistakes from time to time. Se enioma enko ye (if thing's aren't working out), Bibia Be Ye Ye (everything will be alright)."

15. "Nancy Mulligan"

"From a farm boy born near Belfast town, I never worried about the king and crown cause I found my heart upon the southern ground. There's no difference, I assure ya."

16. "Save Myself"

"I gave you all my energy and I took away your pain cause human beings are destined to radiate or drain."

A Step By Step Of How Your Thanksgiving Will Actually Go

Every year we think it will go differently, and yet...


It's pre-Christmas, and it will be a day of stress, love, and wonderful food.

1. You wake up to the sounds of a parent slamming pots and pans on the counter top


It is time. The day has begun and your mom or dad will start yelling for you any minute.

2. You finally make it downstairs and you're assigned your tasks before family arrives


There will be the "Make this table," or the "Dust the entire house because your cousins are coming and they won't notice but your aunt sure will. Oh, and please stay out of the kitchen." You know, the usual.

3. You try to eat breakfast and lunch but honestly you can not WAIT for dinner tonight and the smells coming from the kitchen are overwhelming


What are we celebrating again? I'm just excited to eat.

4. You rush and make your way to the grocery store at least once (maybe twice) because your parents can't leave the kitchen


"You would think mom wouldn't forget anything for tonight, but I guess it is pretty easy to forget gravy when you're making a million other dishes," you think to yourself as you try to defend the forgetfulness.

5. You spend a few hours feeling bored as you wait for your family members to arrive because you still aren't allowed in the kitchen and you find yourself watching that one "Friends" episode to kill some time. 


Football or "Friends"? Honestly I should ask my mom if she needs more help but I'll just keep watching this.

6. Your family finally arrives 


It is suddenly overwhelmingly loud and you now get to talk about your life for the next few hours. Food cannot come soon enough.

7. Hours and hours seemed to go by but dinner is finally ready


At llllaaaassssstttttttttt, my dinnnnnnneeeeerrrrrrrr will be mmmmiiiinnneeeeeeeeee!

8. You have to sit through and listen to either heated debate or six conversations at once while you eat 


Honestly, I'll just keep quiet and enjoy these mashed potatoes for their deliciousness.

9. You get one look from your mom and suddenly your busting the whole table


But hey, there are worse things in life. For instance, I'm not even toughing that turkey carcass I don't care what my parents say.

10. It's round two. You've been waiting for that pie all day 


There's this cool thing called a dessert stomach where you have more room for dessert than you did five minutes ago. Isn't that great?!?

11. Your family slowly starts to leave, and the food coma starts to settle in 


It's been a great meal, even if there was some arguing. At the end of it all, it's still been a great thanksgiving.
