2017 was the year of Ed Sheeran, so of course he had to perform his biggest hits at the #CapitalJBB!

He released the biggest album on the planet this year and there wasn’t a day when we didn’t think about his gorgeous face and feel all warm inside.

Yes, Ed was at Capital’s Jingle Bell Ball with Coca Cola and he made sure to bring all the Christmas vibes with him during this super live performance of ‘Castle On The Hill’.

It was one of the first singles that Ed released from his multi-platinum selling album ‘Divide’ and the pumped 16,000 strong crowd we’re clearly loving it as they danced along to Ed’s guitar-filled vibes from start to finish. What a way to open your set!

Ed Sheeran ‘Castle On The Hill’ Lyrics

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

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

I'm on my way
Driving at ninety 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

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

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

I'm on my way
Driving at ninety 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

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

And I'm on my way, I still remember
This 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
