Ed Sheeran - Small Bump (Acoustic)
This is an amazing song about a premature baby and the lyrics are stunning. Ed Sheeran's descriptions defy description and the belief, strength and hope portrayed are remarkable, this tiny little person being humanized by the words...'you can wrap your fingers round my thumb and hold me tight.' I was riveted to the first ever performance of this song and the most amazing thing is that Ed doesn't mention the words love or beautiful at all yet those are the two main emotions that are actually portrayed in the underlying sentiment of the song... and that is the mark of a brilliant lyricist!
