This is by far my FAVORITE song he has EVER written!

Beautiful build up throughout the song, fitting ending, fantastic lyrics, catchy flow, lovely guitar notes, all and all the great song you could expect from sheeran, and one that totally triumphs on the entire album

Come on guys, vote up! This song deserves much more! It has so much meaning behind it, we can only imagine how much love Ed would've gone through. Deserves a much better place, absolutely love this song

Its great when you can replay it 100 times and sing along every time!

3 Afire Love

Such a heartbreaking, sad, beautiful song. When I first heard it, I immediately knew it had to be my favorite song on the album. His songwriting ability really shows off in this song and you can hear in his voice that he really feels this song.

This song has to be on number one. You can feel the emotions in this song. Plus, Ed's voice is one of the best in the industry.

It's a super duper catchy song. It should be a future single though it kinda contain samples from The Script's If You Could See Me Now - Bennjamin

Thinking out loud is overplayed so it kinda gets annoying. now I like afire love

6 I'm A Mess

That was the first song on a gig, so it must be the best one. But to be honest, every single time when I'm listening to this one I'm in tears or have creeps and all this stuff, so.. it is one of the best

I can never finish it because I get so overwhelmed by my emotions, this song is a masterpiece

So catchy that I can't take this song off of my head

This song is really awesome!

15 I See Fire

I love this song. it's a magical song from Ed. I heard it first time at the credits of The Hobbit 2 movie. I became a fan of Ed after this song.

This is a great song boys

I truly don't understand why I love this song over all the others because I love them all, but for some reason this one captivates me in some way. Should definitely be in the top 10, if everyone gave it one listen, I'm sure they would agree. Especially if you truly understand the genius of the musical part of it.

Should be number 3 or 4

17 Even My Dad Does Sometimes

Truth is, this is genius because it touches you deeply and has the ability to relate to whatever problem you have going on. Despite that, it also is just genius in it's writing and production. Number 1 in my book - mpm795

This is definitely my favorite Ed song because it touches me every time I hear it... "So don't wipe your eyes, tears remind you you're alive"

My fave ed song, simply because it is simple, relatable, makes you want to cry and so underrated! - Heyy7868

This song is way too underrated.

18 All of the Stars

Isn't even from Multiply - Heyy7868

Best of ed
