Borderline by Ed Sheeran

Ed Sheeran is a widely popular English singer and songwriter. In his 2023 song ‘Borderline’, Ed describes his struggles with depression, feeling as if ‘sadness always finds an in’. The song beautifully depicts an image of a man who is stuck between dark and light, and despite his happy days, he has difficulty grappling with his feelings of sadness which seem incommensurate with his relatively happy life circumstances. Ed Sheeran’s song reminds us of the poignancy of sadness and encourages us to acknowledge that we may be struggling with depression despite having a meaningful and at times joyous life.
