Supermarket Flowers by Ed Sheeran Lyrics

I took the supermarket flowers from the windowsill
I threw the day old tea from the cup
Packed up the photo album Matthew had made
Memories of a life that's been loved
Took the get well soon cards and stuffed animals
Poured the old ginger beer down the sink
Dad always told me, "Don't you cry when you're down"
But mum, there's a tear every time that I blink

Oh, I'm in pieces, it's tearing me up, but I know
A heart that's broke is a heart that's been loved

So I'll sing Hallelujah
You were an angel in the shape of my mum
When I fell down you'd be there holding me up
Spread your wings as you go
When God takes you back
He'll say, "Hallelujah, you're home"

I fluffed the pillows, made the beds, stacked the chairs up
Folded your nightgowns neatly in a case
John says he'd drive then put his hand on my cheek
And wiped a tear from the side of my face

I hope that I see the world as you did 'cause I know
A life with love is a life that's been lived

So I'll sing Hallelujah
You were an angel in the shape of my mum
When I fell down you'd be there holding me up
Spread your wings as you go
When God takes you back
He'll say, "Hallelujah, you're home"

Hallelujah
You were an angel in the shape of my mum
You got to see the person I have become
Spread your wings and I know
That when God took you back
He said, "Hallelujah, you're home"

Ed express on this song that his grandma on his mom’s side kicked the bucket during the creation of Divide. These lines are composed from the point of view of his mom, Imogen, as she grieves.

In a track by track talk with, Sheeran talked about the power of the “heavenly attendant looking like my mum” line:

here was no trying to think of poignant lines and being like, you know, ‘Death is this, or like, life is this.’ It was just so spot on, and the lyric of ‘you are an angel in the shape of my mom’—that could end up being a poignant line, but it was the truth. She was the nicest woman you’d ever meet, and she was my mum’s mum. And it was written from my mum’s point of view.
