Sheeran, Ed - In Memory Lyrics

I write this song in memory of
The wayward smile
The boy we won’t forget
The soul you took away from us
The river flows
The tears that we wept

Missing you
Is all that needs to be said
More than blue
The words inside my head

And I know that you’re gone

The cheeky smile
Of jokes and laughs
The memories of times
We crossed the line
The stepping stones
Across my mind
Washed away
We all now feel so blind

Missing you
Is all that needs to be said
More than blue
The words inside my head

And I know that you’re gone

Sheeran, Ed In Memory Comments
  1. MTM60302

    To add some comfort, listen to John McDermott, One Small Star.

  2. Mae 93

    If this isn't played at my funeral, I'm not attending!

  3. Joe Berry

    Rest In peace my beautiful friend I miss you ever day Annie I know u are watching over me

  4. Min Nina

    My aunt is still alive ....
    but I would still dedicate it when I go to college
    going in high school for now
    but in 3 years she will leave and I will be alone
    with my grandparents and my 2 uncles
    but in my house very alone
    I reveal myself with her and I won't be able to do it in 3 years

  5. Viktoria Hobek

    The song could be for a dead friend( yes I am thinking of the same from the we are song because the album is from 2006 and ed sheeran lost him when he was 15. 2006 he was 15.)

  6. Raspberries are the best

    Why does the beginning remind me of “Give me Love”

  7. Colleen Schmid

    About who is this song?

  8. pretty girl

    Goodbye Cameron Boyce. (1999-2019) 😭 Saudade is what we feel on the last day of the life of the person you loved, this song reminds me of you and every time I listen to it, I remember you and I cry, but know that I have always loved you and will always love you, called because I needed your help in gold, I love you Luke, I love you Carlos, I love you Cameron Boyce.

  9. Venecia Contreras

    R.I.P Cameron Boyce (1999-2019)😭 this song is for you. I'll miss you so much. I know that you're gone🎶. 😥But you are in the heart of everyone that knew you. #missing you 🎶😞

  10. Lou Snow


  11. Emma White

    Damn all these comments are making me cry more than the song itself

  12. Riley

    RIP Dad July 18, 2018 RIP Uncle Tyler September 27, 2018. Lost them both to suicide. Never met my dad, and sadly he took his life before I got to, so he took that from me. And my uncle, he was a father figure to me. I was really close to him. Lost them both it felt like one after another, like I just couldn’t catch a break from the sadness.

  13. Kayla Dixon

    i used to listen to this song all the time in middle school when i couldn’t really relate and i just redound it today, the 3 years and 4 month anniversary of one of my closest friends death and i just wish i could go back to being 13 and not able to fully feel what the song was about

  14. viola njoroge

    i lost my best friend last month rip Leslie i miss you so much

    i lost my father to suicide when i was 8

  36. Ella Ingram

    I'm just reading all the comments under this video, and for everyone else this song reminds them of a friend or family member they've lost. Which is sad, obviously. But for me this song reminds me of Max Lightwood. If you've read The Mortal Instruments, you know what I'm talking about.

  37. Harmonie Zurek

    Uncle Lee I miss you so much you was worth every moment of my time I love how much love you had for everyone and I wish you was here to see how much I love you we all love you my hero suicide is never worthy

  53. Steven Yin

    R.I.P Jake 01 march 2013 - 29 March 2017 (4 year old German Shepherd) You're not just a dog to me, You were my best friend, My Brother, Someone i could cuddle to when i feel lonely and sad, you were so patient with me no matter how hard i've stroked you or hit you when you were being bad, you always had amazing tolerance for me. I didn't realise that till you are no longer here with us. I miss you so much, i hope we will be real brothers in the next life and i hope heaven gained a new happy soul forever, i hope you are happy forever after, please come see me in my dreams even just for a second so i could hold you again like i used to. :'(

  54. Jocelyn D'Ambroso-King

  56. Katie Miles

  61. Julia Raiani

  62. Patrick Bateman

    I'm Paul and This song makes me think of my Dad who I've recently lost 3 months ago he was a lovely man kind and he would give the world to me and my sister I just can't believe that he is actually gone and doesn't seem real I always think he is going to ring me and walk through the door and say "a love You son" but that can't happen anymore and that breaks my heart. Always say the words you would want to say to the ones you love because you never know when they are gone ❤️😔 My dad always used to say to me and my sister "I love you up the sky and all the world" it's so hard when you lose someone you love when you are young and it's hard for anyone for when someone who passes away you love. R.I.P Dad always love and miss you I love u up the sky and all the world ❤️💔❤️

  63. Jan Appel

    Missing my husband who is now in heaven!

    Patrick Bateman

    Jan Appel

    Sorry for the loss of your Dad. I remember losing my Dad, then my Mom, then my only sibling, my Brother, and then my husband. They all take a piece of your heart with them. This song sure makes you think!!!

  64. Ophelia Sage

    This is for my best friend. She's not dead, she's just lost her way and I can't help her anymore.

  77. Skylar B

    I feel horrible for all the people here who have lost people in their lives but at least you know they are at peace and you have closure...... To me its worse, yes I've had extremely close family members and best friends die for different reasons so I'm what its like, but the worst thing in my life is not knowing where the person you live is or what he is doing as he will no longer talk to you.... Ever

    Just lost my pet, Dwayne, a few days ago. It was stupid of me to think that you'd live forever, Dwayne, but to think of it, you will live forever. You're always with us. You're not gone. Not really. Thank you for so much happiness. I hope you're happy wherever you are. Good night, Dwayne. We love you more than words can say.

    Joshua Stewart

    Dylan Melencion I'm sorry your pet died I almost cried reading the comment made me think of the people I miss

    Agent Venom

    He has 121 million followers on Instagram & he is not dead


    Mourning losses are hard... But it will just ruin your life, so whoever is reading this reply, keep your chin up and stay positive, don't let death weigh you down from having fun in life. I lost my young pet, she, was called Beautie and she was the most beautiful pup I'd ever seen. I cry inside every day, I fight for happiness every day and I try to forget how her death was sudden the night she went... I stayed up, for as long as I could and I stayed strong until this day... So just remember, stay positive and I'm turning the song off cuz I'm literally about to cry and it's quite late... And good-night Beautie... I love you so much and I will never forget you...

  91. Thomas Schmidt

    R.I.P to my boyfriend nir who got murderd 01.08.2009 miss you so much

  92. Camilla Ferretti

    I went through nearly all of the comments here and I just wanted to say I feel so much sympathy for all of your sadness. Unfortunately this song reminds each one of us of a beautiful soul who passed away. I'm an atheist, I won't tell God and heaven will shelter those and that we'll meet them someday somehow. But believe me, the love of your family and friend and all of the good you shared with who you're crying for will surely help you through this. Losing someone is never easy, neither it is to move on, but you gotta try and you always gotta keep the memory inside you heart.
    Loads of love xxx


    I don’t understand how this doesn’t have replies. Beautiful words. I’m with you.
