Small Bump

Small Bump by Ed Sheeran (2011)

You’re just a small bump unborn, in four months you’re brought to life
You might be left with my hair, but you’ll have your mother’s eyes
I’ll hold your body in my hands, be as gentle as I can, but for now your scan of my unmade plans
A small bump in four months, you’re brought to life

I’ll whisper quietly, I’ll give you nothing but truth
If you’re not inside me, I’ll put my future in you

You are my one and only
You can wrap your fingers round my thumb and hold me tight
Oh, you are my one and only
You can wrap your fingers round my thumb and hold me tight
And you’ll be alright

You’re just a small bump unknown, you’ll grow into your skin
With a smile like hers and a dimple beneath your chin
Finger nails the size of a half grain of rice
And eyelids closed to be soon opened wide
A small bump, in four months you’ll open your eyes

And I’ll hold you tightly, I’ll tell you nothing but truth
If you’re not inside me, I’ll put my future in you

You can lie with me
With your tiny feet
When you’re half asleep
I’ll leave you be
Right in front of me
For a couple weeks
So I can keep you safe

You were just a small bump unborn for four months then torn from life
Maybe you were needed up there but we’re still unaware as why
