Lyrics and Music by Ed Sheeran, John McDaid and Benjamin Levin


Intro: E G#m | Amaj | E G#m | A

           E              G#m                 Amaj
I took the supermarket flowers from the windowsill,
            E         G#m             Amaj C#m
I threw the day old tea from the cup,
                B         A             E
Packed up the photo album Matthew had made,
    A           B7                    E
Memories of a life that’s been loved.

             E             G#madd13-       Aadd9
Took the “Get well soon” cards and stuffed animals,
           E            G#madd13-         Aadd9 C#m
Poured the old ginger beer down the sink,
           B                   A                 E
Dad always told me: “Don’t you cry when you’re down,”
                   A            B                E
But mum, there’s a tear every time that I blink.

 F#m          A             E         B           F#m
   Oh, I’m in pieces, it’s tearing me up but I know,
                  A           E                       B
   A heart that’s broke is a heart that’s been loved,
   So I’ll sing:

Chorus:
     E        G#madd13-
     Hallelujah,
   Aadd9         B            E                G#madd13-
     You were an angel in the shape of my mum.
   Aadd9         B                    C#m
     When I fell down, you’d be there holding me up,
   Amaj           E           Bsus4
     Spread your wings as you go
               C#m           A
     And when God takes you back,
                  E       B
     He’ll say: “Hallelujah, you’re home.”

Instrumental: E G#m | Aadd9 Aadd9 Aadd9 B
              E Eadd9 G#m G#madd13- | Aadd9 Aadd9 Aadd9 B

  B              E             G#madd13-           Aadd9
I fluffed the pillows made the beds, stacked the chairs up,
B           E            G#m         Aadd9 B  C#m
Folded your nightgowns neatly in a case,
               B                   A                 E
John said he’d drive, then put his hand on my cheek,
            A              B         E
And wiped a tear from the side of my face.

 F#m               A          E              B               F#m
   And I hope that I see the world as you did, ‘cause I know
               A           E                B
   A life with love is a life that’s been lived,
   So I’ll sing:

Chorus:
     E        G#madd13-
     Hallelujah,
   Aadd9         B            E                G#madd13-
     You were an angel in the shape of my mum.
   Aadd9         B                    C#m
     When I fell down, you’d be there holding me up,
   Amaj           E           Bsus4
     Spread your wings as you go
               C#m           A
     And when God takes you back,
                  E       B7
     He’ll say: “Hallelujah, you’re home.”

     E        G#m
     Hallelujah,
   Aadd9                      E                G#m
     You were an angel in the shape of my mum.
   Aadd9                       C#m
     You got to see the person I have become,
   A              E            Bsus4
     Spread your wings and I know
                C#m          A
     That when God took you back,
                E       Bsus4            E
     He said: “Hallelujah, you’re home.”
