thinking out loud

I absolutely love the song thinking out loud by ED Sheeran. I love the melody and the passion behind the song. And sometimes in my free time, I rewrite the words to same melody to have more meaning to me. So I came up with the IBD version of this song to encourage those with IBD! I hope you enjoy my version, in addition to ED Sheeran’s original because that song is phenomenal!

 

When your gut don’t work like it used to before

And you can’t get up off of your feet

Will you always have to run to the bathroom?

Does the world know what IBD means?

 

And, darling, I will be supporting you ’til we’re 70

And, baby, I know, its hard to deal with this disease

– And I’m thinking ‘bout how people battle symptoms through each day

Needing the support from a friend

Well, me—I search for more treatments in every single way

And I just wanna tell you, you can

 

So people now

Don’t– let this steel your heart

You don’t need to wish on a thousand stars

Please Know that you will go far—- I’m thinking out loud

That maybe you’ll find peace with who you are

 

When you poop and it takes all your energy away

And your friends don’t remember your name

When your life may not feel the same way

I wonder if or when things will change

 

Don’t forget you are, you’re wonderful, with an ostomy

And baby, your laugh could never be erased from my memory

I’m thinking ’bout how people suffer symptoms each day

Maybe it’s all part of HIS plan

Well, I’ll just keep on praying I find my way

Hoping that you’ll understand

 

So people now

Don’t– let this steel your heart

You don’t need to wish on a thousand stars

Please Know that you will go far—-

I’m thinking out loud

That maybe you’ll find peace with who you are

 

So, people, now

Don’t let this steel your heart

You don’t need to wish on a thousand stars

Oh, darling, please know that you’ll go far I’m thinking out loud

That maybe we’ll find peace with who we are

Oh, baby, we’ll find peace with we are

And we’ll find peace with who we are
