Castle On The Hill – Ed Sheehan – Full Band Cover!

 

Here’s my full band cover of Ed Sheeran’s brand new single Castle On The Hill from his upcoming 2017 album Divide.

Castle On The Hill was an absolute blast to record and film – if a little hectic given that it was only released recently. Since a lot of the covers I’ve seen on YouTube so far are acoustic covers of the song, I tried to take it a step further by recording a full band cover. I’ve tried to stay true to Ed Sheeran’s original song as much as possible while also putting my own spin on it too so you might notice a few little difference’s here and there.

Castle On The Hill
By Ed Sheeran
LYRICS:

[Verse 1]
When I was six years old I broke my leg
I was running from my brother and his friends
And tasted the sweet perfume of the mountain grass I rolled down
I was younger then, take me back to when I

[Pre-Chorus 1]
Found my heart and broke it here
Made friends and lost them through the years
And I’ve not seen the roaring fields in so long, I know I’ve grown
But I can’t wait to go home

[Chorus]
I’m on my way
Driving at 90 down those country lanes
Singing to “Tiny Dancer”
And I miss the way you make me feel, and it’s real
We watched the sunset over the castle on the hill

[Verse 2]
Fifteen years old and smoking hand-rolled cigarettes
Running from the law through the backfields and getting drunk with my friends
Had my first kiss on a Friday night, I don’t reckon that I did it right
But I was younger then, take me back to when

[Pre-Chorus 2]
We found weekend jobs, when we got paid
We’d buy cheap spirits and drink them straight
Me and my friends have not thrown up in so long, oh how we’ve grown
But I can’t wait to go home

[Chorus]
I’m on my way
Driving at 90 down those country lanes
Singing to “Tiny Dancer”
And I miss the way you make me feel, and it’s real
We watched the sunset over the castle on the hill
Over the castle on the hill
Over the castle on the hill

[Bridge]
One friend left to sell clothes
One works down by the coast
One had two kids but lives alone
One’s brother overdosed
One’s already on his second wife
One’s just barely getting by
But these people raised me
And I can’t wait to go home

[Chorus]
And I’m on my way, I still remember
Those old country lanes
When we did not know the answers
And I miss the way you make me feel, it’s real
We watched the sunset over the castle on the hill
Over the castle on the hill
Over the castle on the hill

Thanks for watching 🙂
