Ed Sheeran’s 20 Most Heartbreaking Ballads, Decoded
“Lego House” was a Big Moment for the then-unknown Ed Sheeran, and not just because Rupert Grint agreed to star in its music video. Capital FM says the mellow melody is about a relationship that’s slowly deteriorating that Ed is trying to mend so his partner doesn’t get hurt. Since this song is also definitely about Alice, we know that Ed’s career and her departure for uni caused a major strain in their relationship that wasn’t able to be fixed, but this was the first in a long string of hits about the failing relationship that made Ed a star. Bit of a Faustian exchange, that one.
