Dear Ed, Please Come Back

An Open Letter To Ed Sheeran
Cosmopolitan

Dear Ed,

It has officially been 11 months since you posted this note to your fans on social media signaling that you were going off the grid.

The key phrase I took away from this was, "See you all next autumn." To me this meant you were going to release a surprise album in the fall of 2016. Fall officially began Sept. 22 and still no sign of you. I won't lie, these have been some of the longest months of my life. I constantly check Twitter for sightings, refresh iTunes every Thursday and then there are rumors you got married and I just can't take it. So please Ed, for the sake of all that is good, PLEASE come back.

Sometimes I think to myself

I've sworn away from listening to your music because it's just too hard.

No, but seriously. Ed if you're reading this, please come back. There is literally nobody else in the industry who writes lyrics such as "I can do without a tan. On my left hand, where my fourth finger meets my knuckle." I hope you're well and the third album is coming along!

Sincerely,

A true fan
