Ed Sheeran - Shirtsleeves


잔잔한 분위기의 발라드인 이 곡은 눈물과 바다를 비유하며 써내려간 곡.

이 곡에서는 자신이 흘리는 눈물을 바다에 비유함.

사랑하는 이와의 관계때문에 힘들어서 더 눈물이 나오지 않을 정도지만

그래도 상대를 사랑하는 마음을 노래하고 있음!


[Verse 1]

I can taste salt water

And if I blink again

You’ll be sinking in

So we'll learn to swim in the oceans you made

I'll hold ya

And you think of him

And pretty soon you’ll be floating away


[Pre-Chorus]

And I’ll hold on to the words you spoke of

Anchored down in my throat, love

And I’m captain of the sinking boat, now

With just one armband to carry me home


[Chorus 1]

When salted tears won’t dry

I’ll wipe my shirtsleeves under your eyes

These hearts will be flooded tonight

I’ll wipe my shirtsleeves under your eyes

Your eyes, your eyes, your eyes


[Verse 2]

I still taste salt water

On my lips from your kiss of bitterness

And I'll drown within the oceans you made

And I hate to love you, these cuffs are covered in your make-up

I’ll never trust you again

You can just be a friend

 


[Pre-Chorus]

And I’ll hold on to the words you spoke of

Anchored down in my throat, love

And I’m captain of the sinking boat, now

With just one armband to carry me home


[Chorus 2]

When salted tears won’t dry

I’ll wipe my shirtsleeves under your eyes

These hearts will be flooded tonight

I’ll wipe my shirtsleeves under your eyes

Your eyes, your lips, your mouth

Your thighs, your back, you drive me wild

Tonight, the fact is 

I’m on my way home

On the way home

I lied, I tried to cry but I’m-

I’m drowning in the oceans you made


[Chorus 1]

When salted tears won’t dry

I’ll wipe my shirtsleeves under your eyes

These hearts will be flooded tonight

I’ll wipe my shirtsleeves under your eyes

Your eyes, your eyes, your eyes
