It's alright to cry
Even my dad does sometimes
So don't wipe your eyes
Tears remind you you're alive
It's alright to die
'Cause death's the only thing you haven't tried
But just for tonight
Hold on
So live life like you're giving...

    This song is about his friend, Amy Wadge, who was suffering from cancer at the time. While she is now in remission, Wadge and Sheeran both wrote “Thinking Out Loud” and the “Songs I Wrote With Amy” EP where they wrote 9 songs in just 2 days. He sings about what it’s like trying to support someone with a potentially terminal illness when it seems hopeless. But he still ends the song with light- “Hold on” are the last words of the song.

    I think he is talking to a depressed person who is about to commit suicide, "go ahead and tear me apart".

    ED tells us through his song that's ok to do all the thing that are weird&inevitable since even his father whom he sees as strong, unmoved&vibrant personality also does it.Naturally,tears are shed to show grief and its also a sign of weakness&its said that men do not cry but ed say a father&man cries then why not it &be free?
