Lego House is the third single from Ed Sheeran's debut album +, and written by Ed Sheeran, Jake Gosling and Chris Leonard. The music video was released on October 20, 2011 on Sheeran's youtube channel, and stars Harry Potter star, Rupert Grint as a play on their similar appearance.

CompositionEdit

According to the sheet music published by Jordan James EMI Music Publishing, "Lego House" is written in the key of B major; Sheeran's vocals range from the note of Bb3 to G5. Instrumentation is provided by guitar, piano and vocals. "Lego House" interpolates genres indie folk, pop rock and soul music.

Music VideoEdit

The video for "Lego House" was filmed at the Forum, University of Hertfordshire. It stars actor Rupert Grint. It was released on 20 October 2011 on Sheeran's YouTube channel.

SynopsisEdit

The video's narrative at first portrays Grint as Sheeran, performing such activities as writing lyrics for the song on a pad of paper, lounging in his tour bus, and ultimately taking the stage for a cheering crowd. However, after Grint takes the stage and is immediately tackled by security, it is slowly revealed that Grint is actually a doppelganger of Sheeran and an obsessive fan, and that the events of the video were actually him stalking the real Ed Sheeran with increasing severity and mental instability (writing the song was actually transcribing the lyrics from the album cover, and lounging in the bus was him breaking into it), ending with Sheeran and Grint meeting as Grint is forcibly removed from a music venue and Sheeran comes out of an elevator.

A "Lego-fied" version of the original music video for "Lego House" was released on April 11, 2013 on The Warner Sound's YouTube channel.The video is a shot for shot recreation in LEGO bricks, directed by Dylan Woodley. The music video also got nominated for 2013 MTV Video Music Awards for Best Male Video before losing out to Bruno Mars' "Locked Out of Heaven".

LyricsEdit

I'm gonna pick up the pieces,
And build a Lego house
If things go wrong we can knock it down

My 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 you to keep me warm
If you're broken I will mend you and I'll keep you sheltered from the storm that's raging on now

I'm out of touch, I'm out of love
I'll pick you up when you're getting down
And out of all these things I've done I think I love you better now
I'm out of sight, I'm out of mind
I'll do it all for you in time
And out of all these things I've done I think I love you better now, now

I'm gonna paint you by numbers
And colour you in
If things go right we can frame it and put you on a wall

And it's so hard to say it but I've been here before
Now I'll surrender up my heart
And swap it for yours

I'm out of touch, I'm out of love
I'll pick you up when you're getting down
And out of all these things I've done I think I love you better now
I'm out of sight, I'm out of mind
I'll do it all for you in time
And out of all these things I've done I think I love you better now

Don't hold me down
I think my braces are breaking, and it's more than I can take

And it's dark in a cold December, but I've got you to keep me warm
If you're broken I will mend you and I'll keep you sheltered from the storm that's raging on now

I'm out of touch, I'm out of love
I'll pick you up when you're getting down
And out of all these things I've done I think I love you better now
I'm out of sight, I'm out of mind
I'll do it all for you in time
And out of all these things I've done I think I love you better now

I'm out of touch, I'm out of love
I'll pick you up when you're getting down

[Album version ending:]
And out of all these things I've done I will love you better now

[Music video version ending:]
And out of all these things I've done I think I love you better now

I'm out of sight, I'm out of mind
I'll do it all for you in time
And out of all these things I've done I think I love you better now
I'm out of touch, I'm out of love
I'll pick you up when you're getting down
And out of all these things I've done I will love you better now
