Ed Sheeran’s 20 Most Heartbreaking Ballads, Decoded
Ed’s career was built on songs about love and losing love, but like his friend Taylor Swift, Ed’s written about more than his romantic exploits. “Afire Love” from Multiply will be a familiar story for anyone who’s seen a family member suffer from Alzheimer’s
or seen The Notebook. The song follows his grandfather’s twenty-year struggle with the memory loss disease and how it affected his grandmother through his grandfather’s passing and funeral. Ed told Music-News he started writing “Afire Love” two weeks before his grandfather passed away during Christmas not knowing that the patriarch’s time was coming.
