The Lure of Live Music

Today I purchased tickets to see my favourite signer/songwriter, Ed Sheeran, perform live in Australia next year. I’ve never been to a live music concert before, so needless to say I am very excited. The ticket buying process is a lot more competitive than I realised, and required pre-planning and spending quite a bit of time in a virtual queue.

It’s funny how excited you can get over a particular artist whose music you really connect with. I’ve never quite realised it until today, when no one else in my office was getting excited about Ed with me. Everyone has really different tastes in music, and that’s fantastic! It really shows how diverse we all are, and opens us up to new genres and artists. 

Here are a few of my favourite lines from Ed Sheeran’s songs:

‘I’m gonna pick up the pieces and build a Lego house, If things go wrong we can knock it down.’ 

-Lego House

‘We keep this love in a photograph, We made these memories for ourselves, Where our eyes are never closing, Hearts are never broken, Times forever frozen still.’


‘If this is to end in fire, Then we should all burn together, Watch the flames climb high into the night.’

-I See Fire

‘I hope that I see the world as you did 'cause I know, A life with love is a life that's been lived.’

-Supermarket Flowers

Enjoy the music,
