Ed Sheeran – What Do I Know?

Play Ed Sheeran – What Do I Know? AUDIO

Ain’t got a soapbox I can stand upon
But God gave me a stage, a guitar and a song
My daddy told me, “Son, don’t you get involved
In politics, religions, other peoples’ quarrels.”I’ll paint the picture, let me set the scene,


I know when I have children, they will know what it means
And I’ll pass on these things my family’s given to me
Just love and understanding positivityWe could change this whole world with a piano
Add a bass, some guitar, grab a beat and away we go
I’m just a boy with a one-man show
No university, no degree, but Lord knows
Everybody’s talking ’bout exponential growth
And the stock market crashing and their portfolios
While I’ll be sitting here with a song that I wrote
Saying love could change the world in a moment
But what do I know?Love can change the world in a moment
But what do I know?
Love can change the world in a moment

 

The revolution’s coming, it’s a minute away
I saw people marching in the streets today
You know we are made up of love and hate
But both of them are balanced on a razor blade

 

I’ll paint the picture, let me set the scene
I know, I’m all for people following their dreams
Just re-remember life is more than fitting in your jeans
It’s love and understanding positivity

 

We could change this whole world with a piano
Add a bass, some guitar, grab a beat and away we go
I’m just a boy with a one-man show
No university, no degree, but Lord knows
Everybody’s talking ’bout exponential growth

 

And the stock market crashing and their portfolios
While I’ll be sitting here with a song that I wrote
Saying love could change the world in a moment
But what do I know?Love can change the world in a moment
But what do I know?
Love can change the world in a moment

 

I’ll paint the picture, let me set the scene, You know the future’s in the hands of you and me
So let’s all get together, we can all be free
Spread love and understanding positivity We could change this whole world with a piano
Add a bass, some guitar, grab a beat and away we go
I’m just a boy with a one-man show
No university, no degree, but Lord knows

Everybody’s talking about exponential growth
And the stock market crashing and their portfolios
While I’ll be sitting here with a song that I wrote
Saying love could change the world in a moment
But what do I know?

 

Love can change the world in a moment
But what do I know?
Love can change the world in a moment
But what do I know?

  4. 1hen you move you make music and make all things better. Like in a dream about heaven I had. Walking the golden crystal clear streets of gold and as passing, touching the flowers, they would song and make marvelous music..I think it must be the “lost cord” some say we won’t hear til we arrive there. As far as dancing on the grass, as I walked, I kind of stepped on the grass and hopped back thinking, oh my I don’t want to hurt the grass, but you know, as I looked back, the grass just sprang up again! I just had to laugh! What a delightful dream!! The best was my family was there waiting,..they say there are no tears in heaven, but when I saw my little girl and baby boy..just could not hold back the happy tears!. Your songs mean so much to me. You can never know all the memories your bring to life in our minds. God bless you, young man!

  5. Dear Mr. Sheeran
    As experienced through your uplifting music:
    I thank you for your love
    I thank you for your radiant spirit
    I thank you for your humility and purity of heart
    I thank you for your gifts which you so willingly share
    for “singing and music are the spiritual food of the hearts and souls”.

  6. I wish so much for my grandson to meet you x I have messaged before with a tale to tell but he ho! I will tell it again x When my grandson Connor was 3/4 year old . He said to me Ninin (aka gran) “when I grow up I want to be a rock star”. He never moved from this vocation. One day picking him up from nursery again he told me he wanted to be a rock star I said “if you do become a rock star after a gig will you invite Nin up on the stage” Connor replied “No” I said sadly “oh ok”. After a pause his eyes lit up and he said “Yes I will Ninin” I said “oh I would love that”. Smiling happily he said when I have finished you can sweep the stage xxx This is a lovely memory for me. He is now 10yrs old and he plays the guitar, his older brother Jack plays the drums. One day I said to Connor “this is good you can play guitar and Jack can play the drums and I can be the singer to this Connor replied adamantly “NO” love him to bits and his guitar teacher Tom xx
