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


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:

Chorus:
     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
     And 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 said he’d drive, then put his hand on my cheek,
And wiped a tear from the side of my face.

   And 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:

Chorus:
     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
     And 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.”
