This beautiful romantic song was written by Ed Sheeran and talks about the challenges of long-distance relationships.

It was inspired by Ed being away from his own girlfriend at the time while he was touring.

It’s a beautiful song to play on the piano. The most difficult thing is that it’s in the key of E, so we have 4 sharps! But that’s ok!!

Because this is a pop song remember. So we also only have 4 chords. The chords you’ll need are E major, C# minor, B major and A major.

The hardest part of this song is probably the introduction riff, so that may take a little practice.
