Ed Sheeran – Small Bump lyrics

[Verse 1:]
You're just a Small Bump unborn, Four months you're brought to life,
You might be left with my hair, but you'll have your Mother's eyes,
I'll hold your body in my hands be as gentle as I can, and now your scan on
My unmade plans,
Small bump four months then brought to life


[Bridge:]
I'll whisper quietly, I'll give you nothing but truth,
If your not inside me, I'll put my future in you

[Chorus:]
Cause you are my one, and only.
And You can wrap your fingers round my thumb and hold me tight.
Oh you are my one, and only.
You can wrap your fingers round my thumb and hold me tight.
And you'll be alright.

[Verse 2:]
Your just a small bump unknown and you'll grow into your skin.
With a smile like hers and a dimple beneath your chin.
Finger nails the size of a half grain of rice.
And eyelids closed to be soon opened wide a small bump, in Four months
You'll open your eyes
.

[Bridge:]
And I'll hold you tightly, And tell you nothing but truth,
If your not inside me, I'll put my future in you

[Chorus:]
You are my one, and only.
You can wrap your fingers round my thumb and hold me tight.
Oh you are my one, and only.
You can wrap your fingers round my thumb and hold me tight.
And you'll be alright.

[Verse 3:]
And You can lie with me, with your tiny feet when your half asleep, I'll leave You be.
Right in front of me for a couple weeks.
So I can keep you safe.

[Chorus:]
Cause you are my one, and only.
You can wrap your fingers round my thumb and hold me tight.
Oh you are my one, and only.
You can wrap your fingers round my thumb and hold me tight.
And you'll be alright.

[Verse 4:]
Your just a small bump unborn just four months then torn from life.
Maybe you were needed up there but we're still un-aware as why

    This song makes me cry! It's got shuch a beatiful meaning and is about something heartbreacking, the loss of a baby. It's also about the hopeful anticipation of new life during pregnancy. To lose a bay with only four months to go is devestating as once past a certain point you don't worry about losing your baby, you feel safe that your baby will live love you ed sheeranxx.

    I had a miscarriage with what would of been my second child and I never knew pain until I went through that! I have a 4 week old and there wasnt a week that went by that I didn't have at least a day where I was constantly petrified of losing her like I lost my other baby. This song really touched me and I really did have a good cry when I first heard it. Its a beautiful song that will resonate with anyone whos been through the horror of losing a child and will give everyone else an insight on the pain that goes with such a loss.

    This song is about what can happen when you bring a baby into the world. I can show the struggled and excitement that develops as the fetus develops into a full grown baby. Ed Sheeran is saying that he will support his family and baby not matter what and that the baby is his world now. The first verse is referring to when he first finds out that his partner is pregnant and his feelings towards it. He is also dreaming about what his baby will look like when they arrive. In the bridge he is committing to the baby and is saying that he will never lie to them and will be there for the future. The chorus is absolutely gorgeous as he is saying that his new family is what matters the most and he is imagining what would happen when the baby arrives. The imagery in this verse is very powerful. He carry's on imagining what his baby will look like until he gets to the last verse. He is then talking about his partner having a miscarriage. This is a very powerful stance which tugs at your heartstrings as you can only imagine what someone Is going through when this happens. It is also beautiful as he is saying that the baby is an angel that was needed in heaven. Very tear jerking with lots of imagery and love.

    Verse 1: it obviously stars of with ed singing about the baby bump and how small it was -earlyish stage of pregnancy. The bridge talks about him guiding his child to come and he'll put every ounce of his life into making sure this child has good upbringing and future. The chorus goes on about the child being his first, and when babies feel they grab things and it also shows how small the childs hand will be compared to his thumb and hugging him, lastly the child will be safe with him around. Verse 2: as babies have wrinkly skin, obviously they grow into it and it'll stretch, some obvious characteristics of both parents could be passed onto this child and basically how small it is. With four months to go, they baby will see the world. Verse 3 talks about him lieing next to the child on a bed(as most parents do) and how he'll be a protector and keep it safe. Verse 4: (the most shocking) reveals his child was a still birth and the phrase 'torn from life' is quite aggressive and shocking and it explains how his heart must have just fell to pieces, the last line talks about heaven('up there') and they aren't sure why they would want his little, unborn child.

    At first I thought it was a cool song about a new baby then I realised that they lost it. I dedicated it to my little girl (who is now 7) but she is a miracle. I was never meant to have children and she is my only one and ivf, she was taken away when she was born with an infection and we thought we were going to lose her. This song to me means a lot I love her so much.
