2 Afire Love 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.

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

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.

Very powerful, with a great sad, but beautiful beat.

7 I'm A Mess 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

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

I gotta say this song makes so much sense and it's rare to find other artists writing lyrics and melody like this...It's Amazing

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.

16 Even My Dad Does Sometimes 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"

This song is way too underrated.
