Small Bump
Ed Sheeran Lyrics


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 you're a scan of my unmade plans
A small bump
In four months you're brought to life

And 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
And 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

Ooh, you're just a small bump unknown
You'll grow into your skin
With a smile like hers
And a dimple beneath your chin
Fingernails 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 are my one and only
And 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

And 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

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

'Cause 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

'Small Bump' Lyrics
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 you're a scan of my unmade plans
A small bump in four months you brought to life

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

You are my one and only
And you can wrap your fingers round my thumb
And hold me tight
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, I know you'll grow into your skin
With a smile like hers and a dimple beneath your chin
Fingernails the size of a half grain of rice
And eyelids closed to be soon open wide
A small bump, in four months you'll open your eyes

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

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

Then 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

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

'Cos 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.

My sister was a stillborn, I was only seven and didn't truly understand what was happening.

I remember being so happy to have a sister, not understanding exactly how she was made, but just knowing I was going to be a big sister was really exciting, but it ended, and to explain it to me must have been so hard for my mum and dad. My mum shut off for such a long time, fights between my parents became more frequent, my mum would be left crying, and I would have to be there for her while still trying to get through school everyday.

It hits me every now and then. That I will never know what colour her eyes were, never know how our bond would be, whether I would walk her to school every morning.

As a child I became more and more quiet, shut off from the world although I didn't realise it until I reached high school. It's hard to explain how I have a sister, but she will always be my sister, but it gets so complicated and just brings back memories when my family was torn apart. And yet, without that, I would never have seen the beauty of the world. I feel so cruel for thinking in such a way, but the grieving made me more open to the world, to see past the deception of life and to take every second because it counts so much that I can live it.

My mother recently gave birth to my 14 months old brother, and we all can't quite believe that he's here. He isn't replacing my sister, as some people might think, he's our little miracle. And when he is older, and we visit my sister's grave, I will promise to him that both of us will always be there for him.

This song is so personal to both me and my mum, it chokes me every time it listen to it, but I always smile because it will always be my sister's song.

For those who have suffered a miscarriage, who have had a stillborn or just know what it's like to be in that traumatic situation, it DOES get better, it may take years, but it will get better :) and there will always be people there for you.

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 you’re a scan of my unmade plans
A small bump, in four months you're brought to life

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

You are my one and only
And you can wrap your fingers round my thumb
And hold me tight
You are my one and only
You can wrap your fingers round my thumb
And hold me tight
And you will 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
Fingernails the size of a half grain of rice
And eyelids closed to be soon open wide
A small bump, in four months you’ll open your eyes

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

You are my one and only
And you can wrap your fingers round my thumb
And hold me tight
You are my one and only
And you can wrap your fingers round my thumb
And hold me tight
And you will be alright

Then 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

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

‘Cause 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

My fiance proposed to me when thinking out loud was playing on the radio. Then a few months later our sweet baby boy died when I was 26 weeks pregnant. I found this song shortly after. I feel so connected to Ed Sheerans music, I feel like he writes just for me as silly as that is. I can't say that about any other artist. Music is such a powerful tool to heal a broken heart and a wounded soul. I am so grateful for his music.

I hope you are okay @utopiachild. I wish you and your fiancee all the best. Much love to you

Bianca Lancia

I was only 17 when a girl who i had barely known got pregnant it was a one night stand after a party and the condom we used had broken.
when she told me i was so scared that i freaked out and told her that it couldn't be true and i went to get a test with her to be sure and when it turned out to be true i had a panic attack i wasn't scared for me but the kid, my dad never stuck around and my home life was poor.
regardless i sat down and we spoke and i said no matter how we choose to move forward was her choice and i will not make any attempt to sway her.
After a long conversation we agreed to keep the baby and i dropped out of school to work to earn money for them both.
I never missed a scan and over time we learnt that we were gonna have a beautiful baby boy and i began to feel like a father.
She was walking home from the shops one night where she was mugged and hit multiple times, by the time i got to her we had lost Our son.
every single day i would go to her and try to comfort her but the pain being too much lead to her attempting suicide and failing however it did cause her to be taken to a mental health facility and her family moving away.
I don't know where she is anymore and this was 3 years ago, I've not been in a relationship or has a sexual partner since, i hope one day i can see her again or even write her a letter but where ever she is i pray for her and the son i hope i'm doing proud with this song allowing me to feel like a dad again even if its for only a few minutes.

You'd be a good dad mate!

I was 17 when I lost my first little star. I lost 5 more between 16th and 23rd week of pregnancy. I never forget my little stars and I will always be their mother. I am very grateful to have 3 more by my side - one already moved out to study.
Life's going on. You can be a father for your little star boy and other children by your side. Show your little star that you're not broken. Be proud of him and move on - he will always be in your heart and maybe someday your way will cross the path with his mother again....
