Lego House Lyrics

Play "Lego House"
on Amazon Music

I'm gonna pick up the pieces,
and build a lego house
when things go wrong we can knock it down

but these three words have two meanings,
there's one thing on my mind
It's all for you

And it's dark in a cold December, but I've got ya to...

    My interpretation is quite different from everyones. (just the lyrics)

    There was this book I was reading about a guy who said "I'm out of love" and out of touch. He won't let anyone in. Not even her. All of it is for her. He's out of feeling, cold and blunt, cause he surrendered his heart to her and only her. . . and its not a bitter-sweet love tale. . . it's cold.

    As the story goes on, the girl he proposed to, cried, saying she was happy. Then at the night of the proposal, she attempted suicide. Now he is paying for her medical bills alone as she is still in hospital. She's broken. "her life connected to a tube" (from the book) sleeping for so many years.

    This guy has had it tough, and he won't let go of her. And, if only it was as simple, as swapping hearts, maybe his wouldn't ache as hard? Yet he is her cover, her shelter, whether she knows this or not.

    He loves her, He feels he needs her.
    But he has given up everything
    although he's now a different person. Different from who he used to be, "its all for [her]"

    Its dark, his life
    His dreams, became filth filled, instead of
    But he's still trying to love her as best he can.

    He's doing it all, but he can't see her, he won't. He's at his worst, and its more than anyone can take. "He hates it"
    he "can't bear it any more"
    Now, he feels as though people will easily leave him, its driving him almost insane.
    he "doesn't want to be left alone again"

    Life is whimsical to him, if things go wrong, it will be knocked down. If only it was as simple? So that's why he tries to make it that simple, only in his favour. If only? he feels he has become a child.

    He loves her.
    I love you. Don't let me go. These are his two meanings.

    But through all that has happened, he will try to love, better now. Without the misery, and without the self-hate.

    To me, this guy, is like the one in lego house in many ways, and for this guy in the story, I feel it is time, he learnt to let go. A man at his breaking point... lonely, ashamed, and most importantly, he desperately, wants to be loved, loved in a way to will last forever.

    the lyrics of this song means that if you love someone you will be there for them through ups and downs and that not everything is going to be easy, there will be hard time.

    'my 3s words have to meaning'
    it means that he loves you more then a friend and the other meaning is as a friend.

    'out of all these things ive done i think i love you better now'
    means that hes done so much and hes finally realising that he loves you.

    'ill do it for you in time'
    it means to not expect him to do everything for you from day one that its going to take time.

    People missing others, wanting to belong and thinking about past mistakes.

    Alot of you are gunna flame me probably but I have 2 interpretations, obviously the relationship one where he`s saying that no matter what you do, sometimes u cant keep a relationship working. But I also see it as mainly from the chorus, that he or she is a sinner and is out of touch, sight, and the love of Christ, but when he says, i`ll do it all for you in time, he means slowly u will make it up to him, and when he says, because of all the things he`s done, he`ll love Christ better now, because he`s been through so much pain without God, that in the end,he`ll end up loving him more.

    Out of the the songs, why would you pick such a somber song for your wedding?

    I have been here before? Why would you want to be reminded of his ex on your wedding night? or yours for that matter.

    Well good luck with that.. Did he pick it or did you?

    We have actually decided on this as our wedding song.

    I think that it means that although you might be different and not agree on everything that if you love each other enough you can work it out. Trying something and if things go wrong we can knock it down (try something else or start again)

    Three words have 2 meanings I think means I love you as a friend and much more and he wants her 2 know that he loves her as both. A friend and a lover and all his love is for her.

    I think it it about growing and supporting each other through the good times and the bad. Learing from mistakes and one another to build a better relationship in the future.

    Rupert Grint plays Ed Sheeran's crazed stalker, who is contempt with his obsession and lives his life in according to Ed's. It's a song about the side of the stalker, about what goes through their head.
    I myself must say Rupert plays this part perfectly.

    it is about a man ( Rupert Grint) who is like mental and is obsessed with Ed Sheeran. He has a mental breakdown and convinces himself that he is Ed Sheeran. He goes onto the stage, only to be taken away. He then goes back to his house in a state of emotional wreck.
    This is a very good song.

    I think it's about his broken life
    but now he wants to change everything
    so he's going to pick up all his broken pieces and built a new life

    It's just basically an obsession with Ed Sheeran seen through Rupert Grints eyes and to me it feels like Rupert is tryig to steal Ed's life.

    I think it talks about second chances. Like a lego house, sometimes relationships break up and it's always good to start from another base and make them stronger.
    Ed says "out all these things i've done, I think I love you better now". It could mean that a couple has been apart for some time or one of them made mistakes but s/he is ready to come back and has learned from his/her mistakes and has his/her heart clearer now.He talks about a more stable relationship where the the two will not just be into a relationship but will build one.
    I basically think it's about taking a forgiveness and a second chance.

    He has come from a failed relationship and is now picking up the pieces in a new relationship.."I'm going to pick up the pieces...". He is not sure of his feelings in this new relationship "My 3 words have 2 meanings" but love is not ambiguous. "It's dark in a cold december but i've got you to keep me warm" He needs her right like he is on the rebound. Imagine being on your own at xmas. He is afraid to commit to love again. "It's so hard to say it I've been here before..." He is giving love a chance and falling for her on the way "after all these things i've done I think I'll love you better now" this is definitely not a love at first sight or love is blind kind of naive love but more realistic and objective. "Don't hold me down I think the braces are breaking.." Sometimes in a relationship you give too much of yourself and everyone needs a break and time for themselves and that makes a relationship stronger. I love Ed's lyrics and the way he puts the passion into it. This is just my interpretation..

    A song about regret, he didn't treat an ex right and desperately wants her back because he realises he acted like a dickhead and is misding her now she's moved on. Standard guy feeling sorry for himself because he can't make his mind up about her. The end. Great song, catchy with sweet lyrics. I'd consider taking him back if he sang it to me, and dyed his hair.
