Guitar and piano open the song, with Ed's smooth voice coming in to start you swooning. The duet gives way to a driving, steady drum beat. As the song continues on, Ed talks about how he'll never let you go. A chorus builds the intensity of the song, all breaking for Ed and his guitar singing "wait for me to come home."
