Supermarket Flowers is a song by Ed Sheeran, which appears as the twelfth track from his third album ÷.

Critical ReceptionEdit

Celeb Mix writer Ellie Doe-Demosse stated: "Supermarket Flowers is yet another song that brought us to tears, because the lyrics and the concept of the song was just so moving we cried for a good five minutes after the song ended. We’ve never heard such a beautiful song until this one came around. We could have sworn we heard angels sing when we listened to this song; it’s just so beautiful, so moving, and so fragile. It definitely brings down the mood a little, and tackles a more emotional and tragic matter, which was something we weren’t expecting when we read the title of the song." [1]

Commercial performanceEdit

The song peaked at #8 on the UK Singles chart.

LyricsEdit

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 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
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 says he'd drive then put his hand on my cheek
And wiped a tear from the side of my face

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 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
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"
