The “Game of Thrones” season seven premiere episode was packed with a joyously deadly murder scene, the resurgence of a mysterious weapon, and Daenerys finally putting her feet on Westerosi land.

But one of the most light-hearted moments came from Ed Sheeran’s highly anticipated cameo.

As Arya rode on horseback through the Riverlands, she came upon a group of Lannister soldiers who made camp by the road. Sheeran played one of the soldiers, and he was singing a song as Arya came up. And not just any song — Sheeran sang a song straight from George R.R. Martin’s third book in the “A Song of Ice and Fire” series.

Here are the song lyrics:

He rode through the streets of the city,
Down from his hill on high,
O’er the wynds and the steps and the cobbles,
He rode to a woman’s sigh.

For she was his secret treasure,
She was his shame and bliss.
And a chain and a keep are nothing,
Compared to a woman’s kiss

For hands of gold are always cold
But a woman’s hands are warm
For hands of gold are always cold
But a woman’s hands are warm

The ballad is written by a book character named Symon Silver Tongue, and it’s meant to be a threat to Tyrion and Shae (the prostitute Tyrion falls in love with).

In the books, Shae isn’t given to Sansa as a handmaid as a cover for her presence. Instead she’s kept hidden in a house in King’s Landing, and Tyrion must secretly travel outside the Red Keep’s walls each time he wants to see her.

One of the times Tyrion goes to visit, he finds Symon Silver Tongue inside the house with Shae. Symon recognizes Tyrion right away, which throws him off. If this singer knows about Tyrion and Shae, who else does? And what if he says something? Both Tyrion and Shae would be in grave danger if the secret of their relationship made its way to Tywin Lannister.
