One of the verses makes it sounds like a friend of Ed's was left standing at the Altar. I wonder who he's talking about if anyone, could just be a metaphor for something else.


I think "fell from the altar, a vision, you caught her..." implies an altar of worship, not marriage: someone you pedestalled into an idol / icon, who then fell from the place you'd put her; I'm less sure of "but then, a wood cut in red", but again, it makes me think of an idol / icon, like Mary bleeding from the eyes

edit: or even a Crucifix

agreed. ties loosely into some of the medievalish imagery elsewhere in the song too

This might end up being my favorite Ed solo song. And man, that chorus kills me- something about its singing style really recalls Chris, and I dig the backing track a lot!

It's so SO good. And it flies by. This song feels like a two minute song, somehow!
