There are so many songs I could have picked from this new album: Visiting Hours, Overpass Graffiti, Shivers. Each hit me differently but just as strong. I chose this one because I love its soothing and gentle melody and I think it does an excellent job of describing where I am in my relationship. I’m not suggesting I’m the queen, and he’s definitely no joker (and forget the line about the diamond), but it was a broken road that brought us together, and when I showed my hand (and the tears and heartbreak) he didn’t fold. And the music, those strings… just lovely.
I was upside down
From the outside in
You came to the table
And you went all inThe Joker and The Queen
Ed Sheeran, Johnny McDaid, Fred Gibson, Sam Roman
Right now I’m at a point where I’m telling myself not to rush anything. But at the same time, I can feel myself over-compensating by pulling away a little bit. It’s a hard balancing act. Sigh.
