Ed Sheeran – Afterglow lyrics
[Intro]
One, two

[Verse 1]
Stop the clocks, it's amazing
You should see the way the light dances off your head
A million colours of hazel, golden and red
Saturday morning is fading
The sun's reflected by the coffee in your hand
My eyes are caught in your gaze all over again

[Pre-Chorus]
We were love drunk, waiting on a miracle
Trying to find ourselves in the winter snow
So alone in love like the world had disappeared
Oh, I won't be silent and I won't let go
I will hold on tighter 'til the afterglow
And we'll burn so bright 'til the darkness softly clears

[Chorus]
Oh, I will hold on to the afterglow
Oh, I will hold on to the afterglow

[Verse 2]
The weather outside's changing
The leaves are buried under six inches of white
The radio is playing, Iron & Wine
This is a new dimension
This is a level where we're losing track of time
I'm holding nothing against it, except you and I

[Pre-Chorus]
We were love drunk, waiting on a miracle

Trying to find ourselves in the winter snow
So alone in love like the world had disappeared
Oh, I won't be silent and I won't let go
I will hold on tighter 'til the afterglow
And we'll burn so bright 'til the darkness softly clears

[Chorus]
Oh, I will hold on to the afterglow
Oh, I will hold on to the afterglow
Oh, I will hold on to the afterglow

    I feel the song is about loving someone that si maybe slipping away or isnt certain on the route of the relationship, the way he describes ever thing about her in just awe and beauty, telling her she should just see how beautiful she is.
    The prechorus feels to me personally that it's just passed the early stages of love where its all starting to settle down maybe there is other things going on in her life or maybe she isn't sure on the relationship anymore. "love drunk waiting on a miracle" feels although they as it says we're love drunk they were madly in love but not taking life into consideration only the feelings they had for each other, "trying to find ourselves in the winter snow" well maybe the winter snow is portrayed as fresh and pure where its all excitement and beauty and you can't wait tk get out into it but soon enough it all fades the feelings and excitement turn to resentment and hate you realise its not as warm and beautiful but start to notice how cold and restricting it is. "Oh I won't be silent and I won't let go" is basically him saying that what he knows is worth the wait, its worth fighting for, he will remind her and tell her his feelings for her he won't be silent he will make his voice heard he will make his feelings be known. "I will hold on tighter to the afterglow" he is holding onto what they had he knows that he wants this to work more than anything he knows there is tough times ahead so he is keeping the happy and pure memories and holding onto them until the faze passes hoping that the relationship will go back to the way it was.
