One (Ed Sheeran 2014)

Tell me that you’d turn down the man who asks for your hand
Cos you’re waiting for me
And I know you’re gonna’ be away a while
But I’ve got no plans at all to leave
Would you take away my hopes and dreams
And just stay with me

All my senses come to life
While I’m stumbling home as drunk as I
Have ever been and I’ll never leave again
Cos you are the only one

And all my friends have gone to find
Another place to let their hearts collide
Just promise me you’ll never leave
Again cos you are the only one

Take my hand and my heart and soul I will only have these eyes for you
And you know everything changes but we’ll be strangers if we see this through
We could stay within these walls and bleed
or just stay with me

All my senses come to life
While I’m stumbling home as drunk as I
Have ever been and I’ll never leave again
Cos you are the only one
And all my friends have gone to find
Another place to let their hearts collide
Just promise me you’ll always be a friend
cos you are the only one

Stumbling half drunk
Getting myself lost
I am so gone
So tell me the way home
I listen to sad songs
Singing about love
And where it goes wrong

All my senses come to life
While I’m stumbling home
As drunk as I
Have ever been
And I’ll leave again
Cos you are the only one
And all my friends have come to find
Another place to let their hearts collide
Just promise me you’ll always be a friend
Cos you are the only one

I'm A Mess (Ed Sheeran 2014)

Oh I’m a mess right now
Inside out
Searching for a sweet surrender
But this is not the end
I can’t work it out
How going through the motions
Going through us
And oh I’ve known it for the longest time
And all of my hopes
All of my own words
Are all over written on the signs
But you’re on my road
Walking me home

See the flames inside my eyes
It burns so bright I wanna’ feel your love
Easy baby maybe I’m a liar
But for tonight I wanna’ fall in love
Put your faith in my stomach

I messed up this time
Late last night
Drinking to suppress devotion
With fingers intertwined
I can’t shake this feeling now
We’re going through the motions
Hoping you’d stop

And ohhh I’ve only caused you pain
I know but all of my words will always below
Of all the love you spoke
When you’re on my road
Walking me home

See the flames inside my eyes
It burns so bright I wanna’ feel your love
Easy baby maybe I’m a liar
But for tonight I wanna’ fall in love
Put your faith in my stomach

And for how long, I love, my lover
I feel love M

SING (Ed Sheeran 2014)

It’s late in the evening
Glass on the side
I’ve been sat with you
For most of the night
Ignoring everybody here
We wish they would disappear
So maybe we could get down now

And I don’t wanna know
If you’re getting ahead of the programme
I want you to be mine, lady
And to hold your body close
Take another step into the no mans land
For the longest time, lady

I need you darling
Come on, set the tone
If you feel you’re falling
Won’t you let me know?

If you love me
Come on, get involved
Feel it rushing through you
From your head to toe

Sing,
oh oh oh’s
Louder
oh oh oh’s

This love is ablaze
I saw flames from the side of the stage
And the fire brigade comes in a couple of days
Until then, we’ve got nothing to say
And nothing to know
But something to drink, and maybe something to smoke
Let it go until are roads are changed
Singing “we found love in a local rave”
I don’t really know what I’m supposed to say
But I can just figure it out and then just hope and pray
I told her my name and said “it’s nice to meet ya”
Then she handed me a bottle of water filled with tequila
I already know she’s a keeper
Just from this one small act of kindness,
I’m in deep shit if anybody finds out
I’m meant to drive home but I’ve drunk all of it now
Not sobering up we just sit on the couch
One thing led to another
Now she’s kissing my mouth

I need you darling
Come on, set the tone
If you feel you’re falling
Won’t you let me know?

If you love me
Come on, get involved
Feel it rushing through you
From your head to toe

Can you feel it?
All the guys in here don’t even wanna dance
Can you feel it?
All that I can hear is music from the back
Can you feel it?
I found you hiding here so won’t you take my hand darling until the beat kicks in again

Can you feel it?

I need you darling
Come on, set the tone
If you feel you’re falling
Won’t you let me know?

If you love me
Come on, get involved
Feel it rushing through you
From your head to toe

Sing

Don't (Ed Sheeran 2014)

I met this girl late last year
She said don’t you worry if I disappear
I told her I’m not really looking for another mistake
I called an old friend
Thinking that the trouble would wait
But then I jumped right in a week later returned
I reckon she was only looking for a lover to burn
But I gave her my time for 2 or 3 nights
and then I put it on pause until the moment was right
I went away for months until our paths crossed again
She told me I was never lookin’ for a friend
Maybe you can swing round my room about 10
Baby bring the lemon and a bottle of gin
We’ll be in between the sheets till the late AM
Baby if you wanted me you should have just said

She’s singing

Don’t with my love
That heart is so cold
All over my home
I don’t wanna know that babe
Don’t with my love
I told her she knows
Take aim and re load
I don’t wanna know that babe
And for a couple weeks I only wanna see her
We drink away the days with a take away pizza
Before a text message was the only way to reach her
Now she staying at my place and loves the way I treat her
Singin’ out Aretha all over the track like a feature
And never wants to sleep I guess that I don’t want to either
But me and her make money the same way
4 cities 2 planes the same day
And those shows have never been what it’s about
But maybe we’ll go together and just figure it out
I’d rather put on a film with you and sit on the couch
But we should get on a plane or we’ll be missing it now
Wish I’d have written it out the way things played out
When she was kissing him how I was confused about
She should figure it out while I’m sat here singin’
Don’t with my love
That heart is so cold
All over my home
I don’t wanna know that babe
Don’t with my love
I told her she knows
Take aim and re load
I don’t wanna know that babe

(knock knock knock)

On my hotel door I don’t even know if she knows what for
She was crying on my shoulder I already told ya
Trust and respect is what we do this for
I never intended to be next
But you didn’t need to take him to bed that’s all
And I never saw him as a threat
Until you disappeared with him to have sex of course
It’s not like we were both on tour
We were staying on the same fucking hotel floor
And I wasn’t looking for a promise to commitment
But it was never just fun and I thought you were different
This is not the way you realise what you wanted
It’s a bit too much too late if I’m honest
And all this time god knows I’m singin’

Don’t with my love
That heart is so cold
All over my home
I don’t wanna know that babe
Don’t with my love
I told her she knows
Take aim and re load
I don’t wanna know that babe

Don’t with my love
That heart is so cold
All over my home
I don’t wanna know that babe

Don’t with my love
I told her she knows
Take aim and re load
I don’t wanna know that babe

Nina (Ed Sheeran 2014)

I met you when I was a teen
But then you were one as well
And I could play a guitar
Just like ringing a bell
Sometimes I wonder
In any other summer
Could you be a part time lover to me
Listening to Stevie Wonder
Under the covers where we used lay
And re stacks is what the speakers played
I’d be on tour almost every day
When I was home up in my flat is where we used to stay

Just watching a dvd, smoking illegal weed
Getting high as two kites when we needed to breath
We’d use each other’s air just for the people to see
And stay up all night like when we needed to sleep
We’d go anywhere our minds would take us
And I’d say you were beautiful without your make up
And you don’t need even to worry about your weight cos
We can all be loved the way that god made us
At times the only reason that we could break up
Cos you would always tell me I was away too much
Distance is relative to the time that it takes to get on a plane or make a mistake
So say it again

Oh Nina, you should go Nina
Cos I ain’t ever coming home Nina
Oh won’t you leave me now
And I’ve been livin’ on the road Nina
But then again you should know Nina
Cos that’s you and me both Nina
Oh won’t you leave me now

And every weekend in the winter you’d be wearing my hoodie
With drawstrings pulled tight to keep your face from the cold
Taking day trips to the local where we’d eat on our own
Cos every day when I was away we’d only speak on the phone
Watching blue planet, creating new habits
Acting as if we was two rabbits
And then you’d vanish
Back to the burrow with all the Celtics
I’d disappear, you’d call me selfish
I understand but I can’t help
I put my job over everything except my family and friends
But you’ll be in between forever so I guess we’ll have to take a step back
Overlook the situation cos mixing business and feelings will only lead to complications
And I’m not saying we should be taking a break
Just revaluate quick before we make a mistake and it’s too late
So we can either deal with pain and wait to get on a plane
But in a day we’d have to say it again

Oh Nina, you should go Nina
Cos I ain’t ever coming home Nina
Oh won’t you leave me now
And I’ve been livin’ on the road Nina
But then again you should know Nina
Cos that’s you and me both Nina
Oh won’t you leave me now

Love will come and love will go
But you can’t make it on your own
Sing that song
Go oh won’t you leave me now
People grow and fall apart
But you can’t mend your broken heart
Take it back go oh won’t you leave me now

Oh Nina, you should go Nina
Cos I ain’t ever coming home Nina
Oh won’t you leave me now
And i’ve been livin’ on the road Nina
But then again you should know Nina
Cos that’s you and me both Nina
Oh won’t you leave me now

Photograph (Ed Sheeran 2014)

Loving can hurt
Loving can hurt sometimes
But it’s the only thing
That I know

And when it gets hard
You know it can get hard sometimes
It is the only thing that makes us feel alive

We keep this love in a photograph
We made these memories for ourselves
Where our eyes are never closing
Hearts are never broken
And times are forever frozen still

So you can keep me
Inside the pocket
Of your ripped jeans
Holdin’ me closer
Til our eyes meet
You won’t ever be alone
Wait for me to come home

Loving can heal
Loving can mend your soul
And is the only thing
That I know (know)
I swear it will get easier
Remember that with every piece of ya
And it’s the only thing we take with us when we die

We keep this love in a photograph
We make these memories for ourselves
Where our eyes are never closing
Our hearts were never broken
And times forever frozen still
So you can keep me
Inside the pocket
Of your ripped jeans
Holdin’ me closer
Till our eyes meet
You won’t ever be alone

And if you hurt me
Well that’s ok baby only words bleed
Inside these pages you just hold me
And I won’t ever let you go

Wait for me to come home
Wait for me to come home
Wait for me to come home
Wait for me to come home

Oh you can fit me
Inside the necklace you got when you were 16
Next to your heartbeat
Where I should be
Keep it deep within your soul

And if you hurt me
Well that’s ok baby only words bleed
Inside these pages you just hold me
And I won’t ever let you go

When I’m away
I will remember how you kissed me
Under the lamppost
Back on 6th street
Hearing you whisper through the phone
Wait for me to come home

Bloodstream (Ed Sheeran 2014)

I’ve been spinning now for time
Couple women by my side
I got sinning on my mind
Sipping on red wine
I’ve been sitting here ages
Ripping out the pages
How’d I get so faded
How’d I get so faded

Oh o no don’t leave me alone lonely now
If you loved me how’d you never learn
Oh coloured crimson in my eyes
One or two could free my mind
This is how it ends I feel the chemicals burn in my bloodstream
Fading out again I feel the chemicals burn in my bloodstream
So tell me when it kicks it

I’ve been looking for a lover
Thought I’d find her in a bottle
God make me another one
I’ll be feeling this tomorrow
Lord forgive me for the things I’ve done
I was never meant to hurt no one
I saw scars upon a broke hearted lover

Oh no no don’t leave me alone lonely now
If you loved me how’d you never learn
Oh coloured crimson in my eyes
One or two could free my mind
This is how it ends I feel the chemicals burn in my bloodstream
Fading out again I feel the chemicals burn in my bloodstream
So tell me when it kicks it

So tell me when it kicks in

All the voices in my mind
Calling out across the line

Tell me when it kicks in
I saw scars upon her
Tell me when it kicks in
Broken hearted

Tenerife Sea (Ed Sheeran 2014)

You look so wonderful in your dress
I love your hair like that
The way it falls on the side of your neck
Down your shoulders and back
We are surrounded by all of these lies
And people that talk too much
You got the kind of look in your eyes
As if no one knows anything but us

Should this be the last thing I see
I want you to know it’s enough for me
Cos all that you are is all that I’ll ever need

So in love

You look so beautiful in this light
You silhouette over me
The way it brings out the blue in your eyes
Is the Tenerife sea
And all of the voices surrounding us here
Just fade out when you take a breath
Just say the word and I will disappear into the wilderness

Should this be the last thing I see
I want you to know it’s enough for me
Cos all that you are is all that I’ll ever need

So in love

Lumiere darling, lumiere over me

Should this be the last thing I see
I want you to know it’s enough for me
Cos all that you are
Is all that I’ll ever need

So in love

You look so wonderful in your dress
I love your hair like that
And in a moment
I knew you, Beth

Runaway (Ed Sheeran 2014)

I’ve know it for a long time
Daddy wakes up to a drink at nine
Disappearing all night
I don’t wanna know where he’s been lying
I know what I wanna do
Wanna runaway, runaway with you
Gonna grab clothes, six in the morn-in’ go

How long you leaving
Well dad just don’t expect me back this evening
Oh it could take a bit of time to heal this
Its been a long day, thumb on side of the roadway, but

I love him from my skin to my bones
But I don’t wanna live in his home
There’s nothing to say cos he knows
I’ll just runaway and be on my own

I’ve never seen my dad cry
Cold as stone in the kitchen light
I’ll tell you it’s about time
But I was raised to keep quiet
This is what I’m gonna do
Gonna runaway, gonna make that move
Gonna grab clothes and when it’s morn-in’ go
How long you leaving
Well dad just don’t expect me back this evening
Oh it could take a bit of time to heal this
Its been a long day, thumb on side of the roadway, but

I love him from my skin to my bones
But I don’t wanna live in his home
There’s nothing to say cos he knows
I’ll just runaway and be on my own

Backpack and a flat cap turned to the back
As I packed my clothes up
My dad wasn’t down with that plan to attack, intends to show love

I don’t wanna live this way
Gonna take my things and go
If things change in a matter of days
I could be persuaded to hold on
Mama was the same
None of us are saints I guess that god knows that
I don’t wanna runaway
And one of these days I might just show that
Put my home in a suitcase
Tie both shoe laces and hope that
Things change but for now I’ll leave town with a backpack on my shoulder

I love him from my skin to my bones
But I don’t wanna live in his home
There’s nothing to say cos he knows
I’ll just runaway and be on my own

The Man (Ed Sheeran 2014)

Now I don’t wanna hate you
Just wish you’d never gone for the man
And waited two weeks at least
Before you let him take you
I stayed true
I kind of knew you liked the dude from private school
He’s waiting for the time to move
I knew he had his eyes on you
He’s not the right guy for you
Don’t hate me cos I write the truth
No I would never lie to you
But it was never fine to lose you
And what a way to find out
It never came from my mouth
You never changed your mind
But you were just afraid to find out
But fuck it, I won’t be changing the subject I love it
I’ll make your little secret public it’s nothing
I’m just disgusted with the skeletons you sleep with in your closet to get back at me
Trapped and I’m lacking sleep
Fact is you’re mad at me because I backtrack so casually
You’re practically my family
If we married then I’ll guess you’d have to be
But tragically our love just lost the will to live
But would I kill to give it one more shot
I think not

I don’t love you baby
I don’t need you baby
I don’t want you no
Anymore

I don’t love you baby
I don’t need you baby
I don’t wanna love you no
Anymore

Recently I tend to zone out
Up in my headphones to Holocene
You promised your body but I’m away so much
I stay more celibate than in a monastery
Im not cut out for life on the road
Cos I didn’t know I’d miss you this much
And at the time we’d just go, so sue me
I guess I’m not the man that you need
Ever since you went to uni
I’ve been sofa surfing with a rucksack
Full of less cash and I guess that could get bad
But when I broke the industry
That’s when I broke your heart
I was supposed to chart and celebrate
But good things are over fast
I know it’s hard to deal with and see this
I tend to turn you off and switch on my professional features
Then I turn the music off
And all I’m left with is to pick up my personal pieces, Jesus
I never really want to believe this
Got advice from my dad and he
Told me that family is all I’ll ever have and need
I guess I’m unaware of it
Success is nothing if you have no one left to share it with

I don’t love you baby
I don’t need you baby
I don’t want you no
Anymore

I don’t love you baby
I don’t need you baby
I don’t wanna love you no
Anymore

And since you left
I’ve given up my days off
It’s what I need to stay strong
I know you have a day job
But mine is 24/7
I fell like writing a book
I guess I lied in the hook
Cos I still love you and I need you by my side if I could
The irony is if my career and music didn’t exist
In 6 years yeah you’d probably be my wife with a kid
I’m frightened to think if I depend on cider and drink
And lighting a spliff I fall into a spiral and it’s
Just hiding my misguiding thoughts that I’m trying to kill
And I’d be writing my will before I’m 27
I’ll die from a thrill
Go down in history as just a wasted talent
Can I face the challenge
Or did I make a mistake erasing
It’s only therapy
My thoughts just get ahead of me
Eventually I’ll be fine I know that it was never meant to be
Either way I guess I’m not prepared
But I’ll say this
These things happen for a reason and you can’t change shit
Take my apology
I’m sorry for the honesty
But I had to get this off my chest

I don’t love you baby
I don’t need you baby
I don’t want you no
Anymore

I don’t love you baby
I don’t need you baby
I don’t wanna love you no
Anymore

Thinking Out Loud (Ed Sheeran 2014)

When your legs don’t work like they used to before
And I can’t sweep you off of your feet
Will your mouth still remember the taste of my love
Will your eyes still smile from your cheeks
Darlin I, will be lovin’ you
Till we’re seventy
And baby my heart
Could still feel as hard at twenty three
And I’m thinking about how
People fall in love in mysterious ways
Maybe just the touch of a hand
Well me I fall in love with you every single day
And I just wanna tell you I am

So honey now
Take me into your lovin’ arms
Kiss me under the light of a thousand stars
Place your head on my beating heart
I’m thinking out loud
Maybe we found love
Right where we are

When my hairs all but gone
And my memory fades
And the crowds don’t remember my name
When my hands don’t play the strings the same way
I know you will still love me the same

Cos honey your soul
Could never grow old
It’s evergreen
And baby your smiles
Forever in my mind and memory
I’m thinking about how
People fall in love in mysterious ways
And maybe it’s all part of a plan
I’ll just keep on making the same mistakes
Hoping that you’ll understand
That baby now
Take me into your lovin’ arms
Kiss me under the light of a thousand stars
Place your head on my beating heart
Thinking out loud
Baby we found love
Right where we are

Baby now
Take me into your lovin’ arms
Kiss me under the light of a thousand stars
Oh darling
Place your head on my beating heart
Thinking out loud
Baby we found love right where we are
Babe we found love right where we are

Afire Love (Ed Sheeran 2014)

Things were all good yesterday
And then the devil took your memory
And if you fell to your death today
I hope that heaven is your resting place
I heard the doctors put your chest in pain
But then that could have been the medicine
There you are lying in the bed again
Either way I’ll cry with the rest of them

My father told me, son
It’s not his fault he doesn’t know your face
You’re not the only one
Although my Grandma used to say
That he used to sing

Darlin’ hold me in your arms
The way you did last night
And we’ll lie inside
For a little while here oh

I could look into your eyes
Until the sun comes up
And we’re wrapped In light and life and love
Put your open lips on mine
And slowly let them shut
For they’re designed to be together oh
With your body next to mine
Our hearts will beat as one
And we set alight
We’re afire love

Things were all good yesterday
Then the devil took your breath away
Now we’re left here in the pain
Black suit black tie standing in the rain
And now my family is one again
Stapled together with the strangers and a friend
Came to my mind I should paint it with a pen
6 years old I remember when

My father told me, son
It’s not his fault he doesn’t know your face
You’re not the only one
Although my Grandma used to say
That he used to sing

Darlin’ hold me in your arms
The way you did last night
And we’ll lie inside
For a little while here oh

I could look into your eyes
Until the sun comes up
And we’re wrapped In light and life and love
Put your open lips on mine
And slowly let them shut
For they’re designed to be together oh
With your body next to mine
Our hearts will beat as one
And we’re set alight
We’re afire love

My father and all of my family
Rise from the seats to sing Hallelujah
And my mother and all of my family
Rise from their seats to say hallelujah
And my brother and all of my family
Rise from the seats to sing hallelujah
My father and all of my family
Rise from the seats to sing
Hallelujah

Take It Back (Ed Sheeran 2014)

I’m not a rapper I’m a singer with a flow
I’ve got habbit for spitting quicker lyrics you know
You find me ripping the written out of the pages they sit in
I never want to get bitten
Cos plagiarism is hidden
Watch how I sit on the rhythm
Prisoner with a vision
Signed to a label
But didn’t listen to any criticism
Thought you knew but you didn’t
So perk your ears up and listen
Studio is the system
And you could say that I’m driven
And now it’s onto the next saga
We drink the best larger
I’ll never try to win you over like your step father
I do my own thing now
And get respect after
And I’m avoiding the ‘caine
Like it was Get Carter
For four years I never had a place to stay
But it’s safe to say it that kept me grounded
Like a paper weight
And 16 years old yeah I moved out of my home
I was Macy Gray I tried to say goodbye and I choked
Went from sleeping at a subway station
To sleeping with a movie star
And adding to the population
Not my imagination
I don’t wanna relax
Would it hurt your reputation if I put it on wax?
I take it back now

Mmmm come on and take it back love
Come on and take it back for us
Don’t you fade into the back love
No

I take it back with the rhythm and blues
With my rap pack I’ll be singing the news
Tryin’ act like Jack Black
When I bring it to school
I make a beat with my feet
By just hittin’ the loop
Bringing the lyrics to prove
That I can fit in these shoes
I give you the truth through the vocal booth
And stars burst out on the scene
Like an opal fruit
They try to take aim like Beckham when he goes to shoot
But then again that’s what they’re supposed to do
And I’m supposed to be calm
I tattooed the lyrics onto my arm
Whispering everything that happens
Is from now on
I’ll be ready to start again
By the end of the song
Since they are claiming I handled it wrong
But I’ve never had an enemy
Except the NME but I’ll be selling
Twice as many copies as their magazine will ever be
With all these spectacles ahead of me
And festival fess healthier than a Dalmatian on pedigree
Singing for the masses rubber dingied rapids
I keep this rapping a habit and keep on fashioning magic
I’m battling for respect and I don’t know if I have it
This song from the heart covers the planet
Mmmm come on and take it back love
Come on and take it back for us
Don’t you fade into the back love
No
And take it back now
Now I don’t ever wanna be perfect
Cos I’m a singer you never wanna see shirtless
And I accept the fact that someone’s got to win worst dressed
Taken my first steps into the scene giving me focus
Putting on a brave face like Timothy Dalton
Considering a name change thinking it was hopeless
Rhyming over recordings avoiding tradition
Cos every days a lyrics and the melody can be written
Now absence can make your heart ache
But drinking absinth can change your mind state
Vividly need to let my liver be
I’ll say it again living life on the edge with a close handful of friends
It’s good advice from the man that took his life on the road with me
And I hope to see him blowing up globally
Cos that how it’s supposed to be
I’m screaming out vocally
It might seem totally impossible achieving life’s dreams
But I just write schemes
I’m never having a stylist giving me tight jeans
Madison Square Garden is where I might be
But more likely you find me in the back room of a dive bar with my mates having a pint of Mcdaid discussing records we made and every single second knowing that we’ll never betray the way we were raised remembering our background sat down, that’s how we plan it out
It’s time to take it back now

Mmmm come on and take it back love
Come on and take it back for us
Don’t you fade into the back love
No

Mmm come on and take it back love
Come on and take it back for us
Don’t you fade into the back love
No

Shirtsleeves (Ed Sheeran 2014)

I can taste salt water
And if I blink again
We’ll be sinking in
So I’ll learn to swim in the oceans you made
I’ll hold ya
And you’ll think of him
And pretty soon you will be floating away
And I’ll hold on to the words you spoke of
Anchored down in my throat love
And I’m captain of the skinning boat now
With just one armband to carry me home

When salted tears won’t dry
I’ll wipe my shirt sleeve under your eye
These hearts will be flooded tonight
I’ll wipe my shirtsleeve under your eyes
Your eyes

I still taste old water
On my lips from your kiss of bitterness
And I’ll drown within the oceans you made
And I hate to love you
These cuffs are covered in your make up
I’ll never trust you again
You can just be a friend
And I’ll hold onto the words you spoke of
Anchored down in my throat love
And I’m captain of the sinking boat now
With just one armband to carry me home

When salted tears won’t dry
I’ll wipe my shirtsleeve under your eyes
These hearts will be flooded tonight
I’ll wipe my shirtsleeve under your eyes
Your eyes
Your lips
Your mouth
Your thighs
Your back
You drive me wild
Tonight the fact is I’m
I’m on the way home
I’m on the way home
I lied I tried to cry but I’m
I’m drowning in the oceans you made

When salted tears won’t dry
I’ll wipe my shirtsleeve under your eye
These hearts will be flooded tonight
I’ll wipe my shirtsleeve under your eyes
Your eyes

Even My Dad Does Sometimes (Ed Sheeran 2014)

It’s alright to cry
Even my dad does sometimes
So don’t wipe your eyes
Tears remind you you’re alive
It’s alright to die
Cos deaths the only thing you haven’t tried
But just for tonight
Hold on

So live life like you’re giving up
Cos you act like you are
Go ahead and just live it up
Go on and tear me apart
It’s alright to shake
Even my hand does sometimes
So inside we rage
Against the dying of the light
It’s alright to say that deaths the only thing you haven’t tried
But just for today
Hold on
So live life like you’re giving up
Cos you act like you are
Go ahead and just live it up
Go on and tear me apart
Hold on

Live life like you’re giving up
Cos you act like you are
Go ahead and just live it up
Go on and tear me apart
And hold on

I See Fire (Ed Sheeran 2014)

Oh, misty eye of the mountain below
Keep careful watch of my brothers’ souls
And should the sky be filled with fire and smoke
Keep watching over Durin’s sons

If this is to end in fire
Then we should all burn together
Watch the flames climb high into the night
Calling out father oh
Stand by and we will
Watch the flames burn auburn on
The mountain side

And if we should die tonight
Then we should all die together
Raise a glass of wine for the last time

Calling out father oh
Prepare as we will
Watch the flames burn auburn on
The mountain side
Desolation comes upon the sky

Now I see fire
Inside the mountain
I see fire
Burning the trees
And I see fire
Hollowing souls
I see fire
Blood in the breeze
And I hope that you remember me

Oh, should my people fall
Then surely I’ll do the same
Confined in mountain halls
We got too close to the flame

Calling out father oh
Hold fast and we will
Watch the flames burn auburn on
The mountain side
Desolation comes upon the sky

Now I see fire
Inside the mountain
I see fire
Burning the trees
I see fire
Hollowing souls
I see fire
Blood in the breeze
And I hope that you remember me

And if the night is burning
I will cover my eyes
For if the dark returns
Then my brothers will die
And as the sky is falling down
It crashed into this lonely town
And with that shadow upon the ground
I hear my people screaming out

Now I see fire
Inside the mountains
I see fire
Burning the trees
I see fire
Hollowing souls
I see fire
Blood in the breeze

I see fire (oh you know I saw a city burning out)
And I see fire (feel the heat upon my skin, yeah)
And I see fire
And I see fire burn auburn on the mountain side

All Of The Stars (Ed Sheeran 2014)

It’s just another night
And I’m staring at the moon
I saw a shooting star
And thought of you
I sang a lullaby
By the waterside and knew
If you were here,
I’d sing to you
You’re on the other side
As the skyline splits in two
I’m miles away from seeing you
I can see the stars
From America
I wonder, do you see them, too?

So open your eyes and see
The way our horizons meet
And all of the lights will lead
Into the night with me
And I know these scars will bleed
But both of our hearts believe
All of these stars will guide us home

I can hear your heart
On the radio beat
They’re playing ‘Chasing Cars’
And I thought of us
Back to the time,
You were lying next to me
I looked across and fell in love
So I took your hand
Back through lands and streets I knew
Everything led back to you
So can you see the stars?
Over Amsterdam
You’re the song my heart is
Beating to

So open your eyes and see
The way our horizons meet
And all of the lights will lead
Into the night with me
And I know these scars will bleed
But both of our hearts believe
All of these stars will guide us home

And, oh, I know
And oh, I know, oh
I can see the stars
From America

The A Team (Ed Sheeran 2011)

White lips, pale face
Breathing in snowflakes
Burnt lungs, sour taste
Light's gone, day's end
Struggling to pay rent
Long nights, strange men

And they say she's in the Class A Team
Stuck in her daydream
Been this way since eighteen but lately
Her face seems, slowly sinking, wasting
Crumbling like pastries
And they scream
The worst things in life come free to us

‘Cos we're just under the upper hand
And go mad for a couple grams
And she don't wanna go outside tonight
And in a pipe she flies to the Motherland
Or sells love to another man
It's too cold outside
For angels to fly
Angels to fly

Ripped gloves, raincoat
Tried to swim and stay afloat
Dry house, wet clothes
Loose change, bank notes
Weary-eyed, dry throat
Call girl, no phone

And they say she's in the Class A Team
Stuck in her daydream
Been this way since eighteen but lately
Her face seems, slowly sinking, wasting
Crumbling like pastries
And they scream
The worst things in life come free to us

‘Cos we're just under the upper hand
And go mad for a couple of grams
But she don't want to go outside tonight
And in a pipe she flies to the Motherland
And sells love to another man
It's too cold outside
For angels to fly

An angel will die
Covered in white, closed eyed
And hoping for a better life
This time will fade out tonight
Straight down the line

And they say she's in the Class A Team
Stuck in her daydream
Been this way since eighteen but lately
Her face seems, slowly sinking, wasting
Crumbling like pastries
They scream
The worst things in life come free to us

And we're all under the upper hand
And go mad for a couple grams
And we don't want to go outside tonight
And in the pipe fly to the Motherland
Or sell love to another man
It's too cold outside
For angels to fly
Angels to fly, fly, fly
For angels to fly, to fly, to fly
For angels to die.

Drunk (Ed Sheeran 2011)

I wanna be drunk when I wake up
On the right side of the wrong bed
And never an excuse I made up
Tell you the truth I what didn’t kill me
It never made me stronger at all
Love will scar your make up
Lips sticks to me, so now I maybe lean back there
I’m sat here wishing I was sober
I know I’ll never hold you like I used to

But a house gets cold when you cut the heating
Without you to hold I’ll be freezing
Can’t rely on my heart to beat in
‘Cos you take parts of it every evening
Take words out of my mouth just from breathing
Replace with phrases like ‘when you leaving me?’

Should I? Should I?
Maybe I’ll get drunk again
I’ll be drunk again, I’ll be drunk again
To feel a little love

I wanna hold your heart in both hands
Not watch it fizzle at the bottom of a Coke can
And I got no plans for the weekend, so should we speak then?
Keep it between friends
Though I know you’ll never love me like you used to

There maybe other people like us
Who see the flicker of a clipper when they light up
Flames just create us but burns don’t heal like before
And you don’t hold me anymore

On cold days cold plays out like the band’s name
I know I can’t heal things with a handshake
You know I can change, as I began saying
You cut me wide open like landscape
Open bottles of beer but never champagne
To applaud you with the sound that my hands make

Should I? Should I?
Maybe I’ll get drunk again
I’ll be drunk again, I’ll be drunk again
To feel a little love

All by myself, I’m here again
All by myself, you know I’ll never change
All by myself
All by myself

I’m just drunk again
I’ll be drunk again
I’ll be drunk again
To feel a little love

U.N.I. (Ed Sheeran 2011)

I found your hair band on my bedroom floor
The only evidence that you've been here before
And I don't get waves of missing you anymore
They're more like tsunami tides in my eyes
Never getting dry, so I get high, smoke away the days never sleep with the light on
Weeks pass in the blink of an eye and I'm still drunk at the end of the night
I don't drink like everybody else I do it to forget things about myself
Stumble and fall with the head spin I got, my mind’s with you but my heart’s just not

So am I close to you anymore if it's over?
And there's no chance that we'll work it out
That's why you and I ended over U N I
And I said that's fine but you’re the only one that knows I lied
You and I ended over U N I
And I said that's fine but you’re the only one that knows I lied

Everybody said we'd be together forever but I know that
I never wanna settle down, come around, break up the love like Lego now
Never wanna turn into another like you
Sleep with my thoughts and I dance with my views
Everything’s great, not everything’s sure but you live in your halls and I live in a tour bus
Now I'm in position to be another stalker like everything I say seems to all sound awkward

Like our last kiss it was perfect but we were nervous on the surface
And I'm always saying everyday that it was worth it, pain is only relevant if it still hurts
I forget like an elephant or we can use a sedative and go back to the day we fell in love on first kiss

So am I close to you anymore if it's over?
And there's no chance that we'll work it out
You and I ended over U N I
And I said that's fine but you’re the only one that knows I lied
You and I ended over U N I
And I said that's fine but you’re the only one that knows I lied

Because if I was gonna go somewhere, I'd be there by now
And maybe I can let myself down
And I’m thinking I’m unaware, I keep my feet on the ground
And keep looking around to make sure I'm not the only one to feel low

Because if you want, I'll take you in my arms and keep you sheltered
From all that I've done wrong
And I know you'll say that I'm the only one
But I know God made another one of me to love you better than I ever will

‘Cos you and I ended over U N I
And I said that's fine but you’re the only one that knows I lied
You and I ended over U N I
And I said that's fine but you’re the only one that knows I lied

Grade 8 (Ed Sheeran 2011)

My mind is a warrior, my heart is a foreigner
My eyes are the colour of red like a sunset
I’ll never keep it bottled up and left to the hands of the coroner
Be a true heart not a follower, we're not done yet
And I see it in your movements tonight if we should ever do this right
I'm never gonna let you down, I’ll never let you down
And I’m keeping on the down low and I’ll keep you around so I’ll know
That I’ll never let you down, I’ll never let you down

You’re strumming on my heart strings like you were a grade 8 but I’ve never felt this way
I’ll pick your feet up off of the ground and never ever let you down, now
You’re strumming on my heart strings like you were a grade 8 but I never felt this way
I’ll pick your feet up off of the ground and never ever let you down, now

My eyes are a river filler, this drink is a liver killer
My chest is a pillow for your weary head to lay to rest again
Your body is my ballpoint pen and your mind is my new best friend
Your eyes are the mirror to take me to the edge again, now
And I see it in your movements tonight if we should ever do this right
I'm never gonna let you down, I’ll never let you down
I’ll keep it on the down low and I’ll keep you around so I’ll know
That I’ll never let you down, I’ll never let you down

You’re strumming on my heart strings like you were a grade 8 but I’ve never felt this way
I’ll pick your feet up off of the ground and never ever let you down
You’re strumming on my heart strings like you were a grade 8 but I never felt this way
I’ll pick your feet up off of the ground and never ever let you down

Hold my heart to stop me bleeding now, now, now, and I’ll never let you down
Hold my heart to stop me bleeding now, now, now, I’ll never let you down
Hold my heart to stop me bleeding now, now, now, I’ll never let you down
Hold my heart to stop me bleeding now, now, now, and I’ll never let you down

You’re strumming on my heart strings like you were a grade 8 but I’ve never felt this way
I’ll pick your feet up off of the ground and never ever let you down
You’re strumming on my heart strings like you were a grade 8 but I never felt this way
I’ll pick your feet up off of the ground and never ever let you down

Wake Me Up (Ed Sheeran 2011)

I should ink my skin with your name
And take my passport out again and just replace it
See I could do without a tan on my left hand where my fourth finger meets my knuckle
And I should run you a hot bath and fill it up with bubbles
‘Cos maybe you’re loveable and maybe you’re my snowflake
And your eyes turn from green to grey in the winter I’ll hold you in a cold place
And you should never cut your hair ‘cos I love the way you flick it off your shoulder
And you will never know just how beautiful you are to me
But maybe I’m just in love when you wake me up

And would you ever feel guilty if you did the same to me?
Could you make me a cup a tea, to open my eyes in the right way?
And I know you love Shrek ‘cos we’ve watched it twelve times
But maybe you’re hoping for a fairy tale too
And if your DVD breaks today, you shoulda got a VCR
Because I’ve never owned a Blu-ay, true say
And now I’ve always been shit at computer games because your brother always beats me,

And if I lost, I’d go across and chuck all the controllers at the TV
And then you’d laugh at me and be asking me if I’m gonna be home next week
And then you lie with me ‘til I fall asleep and flutter eyelash on my cheek between the sheets

And you will never know just how beautiful you are to me
But maybe I’m just in love when you wake me up

And I think you hate the smell of smoke, you always try and get me to stop
You drink as much as me, and I get drunk a lot
So I take you to the beach and walk along the sand
And I’ll make you a heart pendant with a pebble held in my hand
And I’ll carve it like a necklace so the heart falls where your chest is
And now a piece of me is a piece of the beach and it falls just where it needs to be
And rests peacefully so you just need to breathe to feel my heart against yours now

Against yours now
‘Cos maybe I’m just in love when you wake me up
Or maybe I’m just in love when you wake me up
Maybe I fell in love when you woke me up

Small Bump (Ed Sheeran 2011)

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.

This (Ed Sheeran 2011)

This is the start of something beautiful
This is the start of something new
You are the one that will make me lose it all
You are the start of something new

And I’ll throw it all away
And watch you fall into my arms again
And I’ll throw it all away
And watch you fall, now

You are the earth that I will stand upon
You are the words that I will sing

And I’ve thrown it all away
And watched you fall into his arms again
And I’ve thrown it all away
And watched you fall, now

And take me back, take me home
Watch me fall down to earth
Take me back

For this is the start of something beautiful
You are the start of something new

The City (Ed Sheeran 2011)

This city never sleeps, I hear the people walk by when it’s late
Sirens bleed through my windowsill, I can’t close my eyes
Don’t control what I’m into
This tower is alive, the lights that blind keep me awake
Hood up and lace untied, sleep fills my mind
Can’t control what I’m into

London calls me a stranger, a traveller
This is now my home, my home

I’m burning on the back street
Stuck here sitting in the backseat
I’m blazing on the street
What I do isn’t up to you
If the city never sleeps then that makes two

The pavement is my friend, it will take me where I need to go
I find it trips me up and puts me down
This is not what I’m used to
And the shop across the road fulfils my needs and gives me company
When I need it
Voices speak through my walls, I don’t think I’m gonna make it
Past tomorrow

London calls me a stranger, a traveller
This is now my home, my home

I’m burning on the back street
Stuck here sitting in the backseat
I’m blazing on the street
What I do isn’t up to you
If the city never sleeps then that makes two

And my lungs hurt and my ears bled
With the sound of the city life echoed in my head
Do I need this to keep me alive?
The traffic stops and starts but I need to move along

London calls me a stranger
This is not my home, home

I’m burning on the back street
Stuck here sitting in the backseat
I’m blazing on the street
What I do isn’t up to you
If the city never sleeps then that makes two

Lego House (Ed Sheeran 2011)

I'm gonna pick up the pieces and build a Lego house
If things go wrong we can knock it down
My three words have two meanings but there's one thing on my mind
It's all for you

And it's dark in a cold December, but I've got you to keep me warm
If you're broken I will mend ya and keep you sheltered from the storm that's raging on, now

I'm out of touch, I'm out of love
I'll pick you up when you're getting down
And out of all these things I've done, I think I love you better now
I'm out of sight, I'm out of mind
I'll do it all for you in time
And out of all these things I've done, I think I love you better now, now

I'm gonna paint you by numbers and colour you in
If things go right we can frame it and put you on a wall
And it's so hard to say it but I've been here before
Now I'll surrender up my heart and swap it for yours

I'm out of touch, I'm out of love
I'll pick you up when you're getting down
And out of all these things I've done, I think I love you better now
I'm out of sight, I'm out of mind
I'll do it all for you in time
And out of all these things I've done, I think I love you better now

Don't hold me down, I think the braces are breaking and it's more than I can take

And it's dark in a cold December, but I've got you to keep me warm
If you're broken I will mend ya and keep you sheltered from the storm that's raging on, now

I'm out of touch, I'm out of love
I'll pick you up when you're getting down
And out of all these things I've done, I think I love you better now
I'm out of sight, I'm out of mind,
I'll do it all for you in time
And out of all these things I've done, I think I love you better now
I’m out of touch, I’m out of love
I’ll pick you up when you’re getting down
And out of all these things I’ve done, I will love you better now

You Need Me, I Donít Need You (Ed Sheeran 2011)

Now I'm in town, break it down, thinking of making a new sound
Playing a different show every night in front of a new crowd
That's you now, hello, ciao, seems that life is great now
See me lose focus as I sing to you loud
I can't, no, I won't hush, I say the words that make you blush
I'm gonna sing this now
See, I'm true, my songs are where my heart is
I'm like glue, I stick to other artists
I'm not you, now that would be disastrous
Let me sing and do my thing and move to greener pastures
See, I'm real, I do it all, it's all me
I'm not fake, don't ever call me lazy
I won't stay put, give me the chance to be free
Suffolk sadly seems to sort of suffocate me

‘Cos you need me, man, I don't need you
You need me, man, I don't need you
You need me, man, I don't need you at all
You need me, man, I don't need you
You need me, man, I don't need you
You need me, man, I don't need you
You need me, man, I don't need you at all
You need me.

I sing, I write my own tune and I write my own verse, hell
Don’t need another wordsmith to make the tune sell
Call yourself a singer-writer, you're just bluffing
Name's on the credits and you didn't write nothing
I sing fast, I know that all my shit's cool
I will blast and I didn't go to BRIT School
I came fast with the way I act, right
I can't last, if I'm smoking on a crack pipe
And I won't be a product of my genre
My mind will always be stronger than my songs are
Never believe the bullshit that fake guys feed to ya
Always read the stories that you hear in Wikipedia
And musically I'm demonstrating
When I perform live feels like I am meditating
Times at The Enterprise when some fella filmed me
Young singer-writer like a Gabriella Cilmi

‘Cos you need me, man, I don't need you
You need me, man, I don't need you
You need me, man, I don't need you at all
You need me, man, I don't need you
You need me, man, I don't need you
You need me, man, I don't need you
You need me, man, I don't need you at all
You need me.

‘Cos with the lyrics I’ll be aiming it right, I won’t stop till my name is in lights
At stadium heights with Damien Rice, on red carpets, now I’m on Arabian nights
Because I’m young I know my brother’s gonna give me advice
Long nighter, short height and I’m going hyper
Never be anything but a singer-songwriter
Yeah, the game’s over but now I’m on a new level
Watch how I step on the track without a loop pedal
People think that I’m bound to blow up, I’ve done around about a thousand shows
But I haven’t got a house plus I live on the couch
So you believe the lyrics when I’m singing them out
From day one, I’ve been prepared, with VO5 wax for my ginger hair
So now I’m back to the sofa giving a dose of what the future holds
‘Cos it’s another day, plus I keep my last name forever, keep this genre pretty basic
Gonna be breaking into other people’s tunes when I chase it
And replace it with the elephant in the room with a facelift
Into another rapper’s shoes using new laces
Selling CD's from my rucksack aiming for the papers
Selling CD’s from my rucksack aiming for majors
Nationwide tour with Just Jack, still had to get the bus back
Clean-cut kid without a razor for the moustache
I hit back when the pen hurts me, I’m still a choir boy in a Fenchurch tee
I’m still the same as a year ago but more people hear me though
According to the MySpace and YouTube videos
I’m always doing shows if I’m not I’m in the studio
Truly broke, never growing up call me Rufio
Melody music maker, reading all the papers
They say I’m up-and-coming like I’m fucking in an elevator

‘Cos you need me, man, I don't need you
You need me, man, I don't need you
You need me, man, I don't need you at all
You need me, man, I don't need you
You need me, man, I don't need you
You need me, man, I don't need you
You need me, man, I don't need you at all
You need me, man, I don’t need you.

Kiss Me (Ed Sheeran 2011)

Settle down with me, cover me up, cuddle me in
Lie down with me, yeah, and hold me in your arms
And your heart’s against my chest, your lips pressed to my neck
I’m falling for your eyes but they don’t know me yet
And with a feeling I’ll forget, I’m in love now

Kiss me like you wanna be loved, you wanna be loved, you wanna be loved
This feels like falling in love, falling in love, falling in love

Settle down with me and I’ll be your safety, you’ll be my lady
I was made to keep your body warm but I’m cold as the wind blows
So hold me in your arms
My heart’s against your chest, your lips pressed to my neck
I’m falling for your eyes but they don’t know me yet
And with this feeling I’ll forget, I’m in love now

Kiss me like you wanna be loved, you wanna be loved, you wanna be loved
This feels like falling in love, falling in love, falling in love

Yeah I’ve been feeling everything from hate to love from love to lust from lust to truth I guess that’s how I know you
So hold you close to help you give it up

So kiss me like you wanna be loved, you wanna be loved, you wanna be loved
This feels like falling in love, falling in love, falling in love
Kiss me like you wanna be loved, you wanna be loved, you wanna be loved
This feels like falling in love, falling in love, falling in love

Give Me Love (Ed Sheeran 2011)

Give me love like her
‘Cos lately I’ve been waking up alone
Paint splattered teardrops on my shirt
Told you I’d let them go
And that I’ll fight my corner
Maybe tonight I’ll call ya
After my blood turns into alcohol
No I just wanna hold ya

Give a little time to me, or burn this out
We’ll play hide and seek to turn this around
And all I want is the taste that your lips allow
My my, my my, oh give me love
My my, my my, oh give me love
My my, my my, oh give me love
My my, my my, oh give me love
My my, my my
Give me love

Give me love like never before
‘Cos lately I’ve been craving more
And it’s been a while but I still feel the same
Maybe I should let you go
You know I’ll fight my corner
And that tonight I’ll call ya
After my blood is drowning in alcohol
No I just wanna hold ya

Give a little time to me, or burn this out
We’ll play hide and seek to turn this around
And all I want is the taste that your lips allow
My my, my my, oh give me love
Give a little time to me, or burn this out
We’ll play hide and seek to turn this around
And all I want is the taste that your lips allow
My my, my my, oh give me love
My my, my my, oh give me love
My my, my my, oh give me love
My my, my my, oh give me love
My my, my my, oh give me love

M-my my, m-my my, m-my my, give me love, lover
M-my my, m-my my, m-my my, give me love, lover
M-my my, m-my my, m-my my, give me love, lover

My my, my my, oh give me love

Fall (Ed Sheeran & Amy Wadge 2009)

You and I
Two of a mind
This love’s
One of a kind
You and I
We’re drifting
Over the edge
And I will fall for you
And I will fall for you
If I fall for you
Would you fall too?

You and I
Learning to speak
With kisses on cheek
We’re lifted
Over the edge
And I will fall for you
And I will fall for you
If I fall for you
Would you fall too?

Fire Alarms (Ed Sheeran & Amy Wadge 2009)

The rain won’t stop falling
It’s harder than before
This car keeps on stalling
Pedal to the floor

What I need to know
Is if you love me
And I really need to know is
If you want me when you call
If you want me when you call

We were young
And we were foolish
Schoolbooks in our arms
Dodging homework
Dodging classes
To set off fire alarms

And what I need to know
Is if you love me
And I really need to know
If you need me when you call
If you want me when you call

We are waving our lives away
We are waving our lives away

What I need to know
Is if you love me
And I really need to know
If you need me when you call

What I need to know
Is if you love me
And I really need to know
If you need me when you call
If you want me when you call

Where We Land (Ed Sheeran & Amy Wadge 2009)

Treat me beneath this clear night sky
And I will lie with you
I start to feel those butterflies
When I’m next to you

Tell me your secrets
Give me a friend
Let all the good times flood in
Do I love you?
Do I hate you?
I can’t make up my mind
So let’s freefall
See where we land

It’s been this way since we were young
We’ll fight and then make up
I’ll breathe your air into my lungs
When I feel your touch

Tell me your secrets
Give me a friend
Let all the good times flood in
Do I love you?
Do I hate you?
I can’t make up my mind
So let’s freefall
And see where we land

Cold Coffee (Ed Sheeran & Amy Wadge 2009)

She’s like cold coffee in the morning
I’m drunk off last night’s whisky and coke
She’ll make me shiver without warning
And make me laugh, as if I’m in on joke

And you can stay with me forever
Or you could stay with me for now
And tell me if I’m wrong
And tell me if I’m right
Tell me if you need a loving hand
To help you fall asleep tonight
Tell me if I know
Tell me if I do
Tell me how to fall in love
The way you want me to

I’ll wake with coffee in the morning
But she prefers two lumps of sugar and tea
Outside, the day is up and calling
But I don’t have to be
So please go back to sleep

And stay with me forever
Or you could stay with me for now
And tell me if I’m wrong
And tell me if I’m right
Tell me if you need a loving hand
To help you fall asleep tonight
Tell me if I know
Tell me if I do
Tell me how to fall in love
The way you want me to

Cos I love the way you wake me up
For goodness sake, will my love not be enough?

Tell me if I’m wrong
Tell me if I’m right
Tell me if you need a loving hand
To help you fall asleep tonight
Tell me if I know
Tell me if I do
Tell me how to fall in love
The way you want me to

Tell me if I’m wrong
Tell me if I’m right
Tell me if you need a loving hand
To help you fall asleep tonight

She (Ed Sheeran & Amy Wadge 2009)

I paid all my dues
And she wanted to know
That I’d never leave her
Now I’m ready to go
And strange as it seems
She’s endless to me
She’s just like paperwork
But harder to read

Patience, my enemy
And loving’s my friend
It’s harder to leave
With my heart on my sleeve
Than to stay and just pretend
Oh, she knows me so well
Oh, she knows me like I know myself

I made all my plans
And she has made hers
She kept me in mind
But I wasn’t sure
I searched every room
For a way to escape
But every time
I tried to leave
She keeps holding on to me
For dear life
And blocking my way

Patience, my enemy
And loving’s my friend
It’s harder to leave
With my heart on my sleeve
Than to stay and just pretend
Oh, she knows me so well
Oh, she knows me like I know myself

And like the back of her hand
She already understands everything
Won’t you stay?
She says
And she already knows how it goes
And where she stands
I’ll stay, anyway
Cos she knows me so well
Oh, she knows me like I know myself
Oh, she knows me so well
Oh, she knows me like I know myself

The A Team (Ed Sheeran 2010) (Not Available on Loose Change)

White lips, pale face
Breathing in snowflakes
Burnt lungs, sour taste
Light’s gone, day’s end
Struggling to pay rent
Long nights, strange men

And they say
She’s in the Class A Team
Stuck in her daydream
Been this way since 18
But lately her face seems
Slowly sinking, wasting
Crumbling like pastries
And they scream
The worst things in life come free to us
Cos we’re just under the upperhand
And go mad for a couple of grams
And she don’t want to go outside tonight
And in a pipe she flies to the Motherland
Or sells love to another man
It’s too cold outside
For angels to fly
Angels to fly

Ripped gloves, raincoat
Tried to swim and stay afloat
Dry house, wet clothes
Loose change, bank notes
Weary-eyed, dry throat
Call girl, no phone

And they say
She’s in the Class A Team
Stuck in her daydream
Been this way since 18
But lately her face seems
Slowly sinking, wasting
Crumbling like pastries
And they scream
The worst things in life come free to us
Cos we’re just under the upperhand
And go mad for a couple of grams
And she don’t want to go outside tonight
And in a pipe she flies to the Motherland
Or sells love to another man
It’s too cold outside
For angels to fly
Angels to fly
An angel will die
Covered in white
Closed eye
And hoping for a better life
This time, we’ll fade out tonight
Straight down the line

And they say
She’s in the Class A Team
Stuck in her daydream
Been this way since 18
But lately her face seems
Slowly sinking, wasting
Crumbling like pastries
They scream
The worst things in life come free to us
And we’re all under the upperhand
Go mad for a couple of grams
And we don’t want to go outside tonight
And in a pipe we fly to the Motherland
Or sell love to another man
It’s too cold
For angels to fly
Angels to fly
To fly, fly
Or angels to die

Homeless (Ed Sheeran & Anna Krantz 2009)

Could I wake up next to you
When we’re hitting double figures
Look into your eyes
Like I’m looking into double mirrors
Could you make it any clearer
Everything’s such a blur
It’s not my turn
It’s hers to get hurt
On a late night
Coming home from way too many train rides
Lace not as red as my face
I’m home at the same time
Highbury estate's fine
Smoking like a dragon, but don’t chase lines

I haven’t slept for the past week
Two hours ain’t enough for me
I feel inspired, at quarter to three am
I haven’t changed since our last meet
I’m still getting all my meals for free
Think I’m being shunned by my feet again

It’s not a homeless life for me
It’s just I’m home less than I’d like to be

And now I’m sitting on a night bus
Flicking through my Ipod
Feeling kinda tired
So I try to close my eyes up
Driver, turn the lights off
Lights on, on stage, mics on
Song plays, nice one
Gotta keep my hype strong
Truth be, never went to Uni
People see right through me
but I’m not a fool, see
I’m never gonna do one
Gonna live past 22, done
Everything I need to
Except get a 2:1

I haven’t slept for the past week
Two hours ain’t enough for me
I feel inspired, at quarter to three am
I haven’t changed since our last meet
I’m still getting all my food for free
Think I’m being shunned by my feet again

It’s not a homeless life for me
It’s just I’m home less than I’d like to be

When I feel cold
You keep me warm
And I’m not looking for some loose change
Just wanna find a true mate
Who wants to be my duvet

It’s not a homeless life for me
It’s just I’m home less than I’d like to be

Little Bird (Ed Sheeran 2009)

If we take this bird in
With its broken leg
We could nurse it
She said
Come inside
For a little lie down with me
If you fall asleep
It wouldn’t be the worst thing
But when I wake up
Your make-up is on my shoulder
And tell me, if I lie down
Would you stay now
And let me hold you?

But if I kissed you
Will your mouth read this truth
Darling, how I miss you
Strawberries taste how lips do
And it’s not complete yet
Mustn’t get our feet wet
Cos that leads to regret
Diving in too soon
And I’ll owe it all to you
My little bird
My little bird

If we take a walk out
In the morning dew
We could lay down
So I’m next to you
Come inside
For a little home-made tea
If you fall asleep
Then at least you’re next to me
And if I wake up
You see, it’s late, love
Go back to sleep
I’m covered by nature
And I’m safe now
Underneath this oak tree
With you beside me

But if I kissed you
Will your mouth read this truth?
Darling, how I miss you
Strawberries taste how lips do
And it’s not complete yet
Mustn’t get our feet wet
Cos that leads to regret
Diving in too soon
And I’ll owe it all to you
My little bird
My little bird

And of all these things
I’m sure of
I’m not quite certain
Of your love
And you made me scream
But then I made you cry
When I left that little bird
With its broken leg to die

But if I kissed you
Will your mouth read this truth
Darling, how I miss you
Strawberries taste like lips do
And it’s not complete yet
Mustn’t get our feet wet
Cos that leads to regret
Diving in too soon
And I’ll owe it all to you
My little bird
My little bird
You’re my little bird

Sofa (Ed Sheeran & Anna Krantz 2009)

She’s reinventing loving me
When we’re resembling cutlery on the sofa
It must have been about 5.01
Like my blue ripped jeans
And my eyes are closed
And I’m way too tired
Hoody still smells of the beach bonfire
On the sofa, where we lay
I wanna stay inside all day
And it’s cold outside, again

And we’re both so high
We could fly to Berlin, Tokyo or Jamaica
We can go where you want
Say the word and I’ll take ya
But I’d rather stay on the sofa
On the sofa, with you

When the morning comes
We’re not watching Formula I
It’s not what we breathe for
So kick off the day with Friends on T4
Two, boiled and brew
Two sugars ain’t too sweet for you
On the sofa, where we lay
I wanna stay inside all day
And it’s cold outside, again
And we’re still so high

We could fly to Berlin, Tokyo or Jamaica
We can go where you want
Say the word and I’ll take ya
But I’d rather stay on the sofa
On the sofa, with you

And it feels like I’m flying
And it feels like
We could go to Berlin, Tokyo or Jamaica
Through the streets of New York
That is where I will take ya
Paris, Rome, to Rio
Passing through Las Vegas
We can go where you want
Say the word, and I’ll take ya
But I’d rather stay on the sofa
On the sofa
On the sofa, with you

One Night (Ed Sheeran & Jake Gosling 2010)

Lying in a bedroom
Lighting up a Benson
Face hair is growing
So I cut with a vengeance
Hey, did I mention
As she makes an entrance
Said I had a tendency
To finish off a sentence

Oh well, she’s a local girl
No make-up
Cos she knows me well
Hair tied up in elastic band
With a kiss on the cheek
For her one-night man

Is it fast food
I’ll regret it after
And I needed money
But I’m too shy to ask her
So she buys me chips and cheese
And I tell her I love her
And she’s all I need
I take it with a cold glass
Of the fruit and the barley
She’s still a sucker for the
Apple and Bacardi
Heading to the party
Sitting in the car seat
B.E.P. on radio
It makes me feel naughty

She knows me well
Bit of a catch
To have a local girl
Hair tied up in elastic band
With a kiss on the cheek
For her one-night man
I don’t wanna go alone
I don’t wanna go alone

Tell her that I love her
Tell her that I need her
Tell her that she’s more
Than a one-night stand
Tell her that she turns my cheeks
The colour of my hair
All I wanna do is be near

Tell her that I want her
Tell her that I need her
Tell her that she’s more than a one-night stand
Tell her that I love her
More than anyone else
If you don’t, then I’ll tell her myself

And we’ve got love in us
So if the drink kill us
We’re gonna dance all night
Till the floor fillers
If we talk outside
I say I hate wasps too
I don’t really dance
So I’ll just watch you
Are you taking me back tonight?
Tell me if that’s alright
I don’t wanna be here
I’m not the sofa type
Tell me if you have a toothbrush
You don’t mind sharing
She said I wanna take off
What you’re wearing
I don’t wanna go alone
I don’t wanna go alone

Tell her that I love her
Tell her that I need her
Tell her that she’s more
Than a one-night stand
Tell her that she turns my cheeks
The colour of my hair
All I wanna do is be near
Tell her that I want her
Tell her that I need her
Tell her that she’s more
Than a one-night stand
Tell her that I love her
More than anyone else
If you don’t, I’ll tell her myself

She’s like the fast food
I’ll regret it after
And I needed money
But I’m too shy to ask her
But she buys me chips and cheese
So I tell her that she’s all I need

Tell her that she’s more
Than a one-night stand
Tell her that she turns my cheeks
The colour of my hair
All I wanna do is be near
Tell her that she’s more
Than a one-night stand
Tell her that I love her
More than anyone else
If you don’t, I’ll tell her myself

Tell her that I love her
Tell her that I need her
That she’s more
Than a one-night stand
Tell her that she turns my cheeks
The colour of my hair
All I wanna do is be near
Tell her that I want her
Tell her that I need her
Tell her that she’s more
Than a one-night stand
Tell her that I love her
More than anyone else
If you don’t, I’ll tell her myself

Firefly (Ed Sheeran 2009)

I fell in love next to you
Burning fires in this room
It just fits
Light and smooth
Like my feet in my shoes
Little one, lie with me
Sew you heart to my sleeve
We’ll stay quiet
Underneath shooting stars
If it helps you sleep
And hold me tight
Don’t let me breathe
Feeling like
You won’t believe

There’s a firefly
Loose tonight
Better catch it
Before it burns this place down
And I lie
If I don’t feel so right
But the world looks better
Through your eyes

 

Teach my skin
Those new tricks
Warm me up
With your lips
Heart to heart
Melt me down
It’s too cold
In this town
Close your eyes
Lean on me
Face to mouth
Lips to cheek
Feeling numb
In my feet
You’re the one
To help me
Get to sleep

And hold me tight
Don’t let me breathe
Feeling like
You won’t believe

There’s a firefly
Loose tonight
Better catch it
Before it burns this place down
And I lie
If I don’t feel so right
But the world looks better
Through your eyes

It’s only been
One night of love
And maybe
That is not enough

Hold me tight
Don’t let me breathe
Feeling like
You won’t believe

It’s only been
One night of love
And maybe
That’s not enough

Hold me tight
Don’t let me breathe
Feeling like
You won’t believe

There’s a firefly loose tonight
Better catch it
Before it burns this place down
And I lie
If I don’t feel so right
But the world looks better
Through your eyes

The City (Ed Sheeran & Jake Gosling 2008)

This city never sleeps, I hear the people walk by when it’s late
Sirens bleed through my windowsill, I can’t close my eyes
Don’t control what I’m into
This tower is alive, the lights that blind keep me awake
Hood up and lace untied, sleep fills my mind
Can’t control what I’m into

London calls me a stranger, a traveller
This is now my home, my home

I’m burning on the back street
Stuck here sitting in the backseat
I’m blazing on the street
What I do isn’t up to you
If the city never sleeps then that makes two

The pavement is my friend, it will take me where I need to go
I find it trips me up and puts me down
This is not what I’m used to
And the shop across the road fulfils my needs and gives me company
When I need it
Voices speak through my walls, I don’t think I’m gonna make it
Past tomorrow

London calls me a stranger, a traveller
This is now my home, my home

I’m burning on the back street
Stuck here sitting in the backseat
I’m blazing on the street
What I do isn’t up to you
If the city never sleeps then that makes two

And my lungs hurt and my ears bled
With the sound of the city life echoed in my head
Do I need this to keep me alive?
The traffic stops and starts but I need to move along

London calls me a stranger
This is not my home, home

I’m burning on the back street
Stuck here sitting in the backseat
I’m blazing on the street
What I do isn’t up to you
If the city never sleeps then that makes two

You Need Me, I Don't Need You (Ed Sheeran 2008)

I don’t want bruise your ears
Or hurt you again
But I got back-stabbed by a black cab
When I needed a friend

But now I’m in town, break it down
Thinking of making a new sound
Playing a different show every night
In front of a new crowd
That’s you now, hello, ciao
Seems that life is great now
See me lose focus, as I sing to you loud
I can’t, no, I won’t hush
I’ll say the words that make you blush
I’m gonna sing this now
See, I’m true, my songs are where my heart is
I’m like glue, I stick to other artists
I’m not you, now that would be disastrous
Let me sing and do my thing
And move to greener pastures
See, I’m real, I do it all, it’s all me
I’m not fake, don’t ever call me lazy
I won’t stay put
Give me the chance to be free
Suffolk sadly seems to sort of suffocate me
You need me, man, I don’t need you
You need me, man, I don’t need you
You need me, man, I don’t need you

Does he write his own tune?
Does he write his own verse? hell
Or need another wordsmith
to make the tune sell?
Call yourself a singer-writer
You’re just bluffing
Your name’s on the credits
And you didn’t write nothing
I sing fast
I know that all my shit’s cool
I will blast
And I didn’t go to Brit School
I came fast with the way I act, right
I can’t last, if I’m smoking on a crack pipe
I won’t be a product of my genre
My mind will always be stronger than my songs are
Never believe the bullshit that fake guys feed to ya
Always read the stories that you hear in Wikipedia
And musically I’m demonstrating
When I perform live, feels like I am meditating
Times at The Enterprise when some fella filmed me
‘A young singer-writer like Gabriella Cilmi’
You need me, man, I don’t need you
You need me, man, I don’t need you
You need me, man, I don’t need you, at all

So (Ed Sheeran 2009)

Filled up with doubt
I have to move home
But I want to stay with you
For all of the summer
I have my plan
That you won’t remember
If you want to see the world
Then please ask your mother
I cannot hold your hand
To watch you go
I am a liar
As you might know
I need you now
I need your touch
And your lips
I need that smile
And your kiss

You’re so cool
You’re so beautiful
You’re so
You’re so

I see your grace
From my window
When it is late at night
It’ll show me your shadow
I’m in my place
Hope you remember
When summer’s gone
I’ll still sing a song
Of you in September
I cannot hold your hand
To watch you go
I am a liar
As you might know
I need you now
I need your touch
And your lips
I need that smile
And your kiss

You’re so cool
You’re so beautiful
You’re so
You’re so

These words I say mean
You’re so amazing
I’ve noticed lately
I need you, maybe

You’re so cool
You’re so beautiful
You’re so
You’re so

Sunburn (Ed Sheeran 2009)

You’re not her
Though I try to see you differently
I tow the line
You see, I’m searching for what used to be mine
I saw your eyes
And then I saw her staring back at me
And I will try to find another one
Who suited me as well as her

I moved far away from you
And I want to see you here beside me, dear
But things aren’t clear
When we never even tried
We never even talked
We never even thought in the long run
Whenever it was painful
Whenever I was away
I’d miss you
I miss you

She was mine
I was hers
And all that’s in between
If she would cry
I would shelter her
And keep her from the darkness that will be

If I moved far away from you
And I want to see you here beside me, dear
But things aren’t clear
We never even tried
We never even talked
We never even thought in the long run
Whenever it was painful
Whenever I was away
I’d miss you
And I miss you

Don’t drop me in
It’s not my turn
If you cut deep
Then I might learn
If you scar and leave me
Like a sunburn

Don’t drop me in
It’s not my turn
If you cut deep
Then I might learn
You scarred and left me
Like a sunburn

We never even tried
We never even talked
We never even thought in the long run
Whenever it was painful
Whenever I was away
I’d miss you
And I miss you

Be Like You (Ed Sheeran 2008)

Happy days
That left us on the floor
And you breathe me
Till you’re not feeling sure
Everything will brighten up
If we go to Brighton
I’ll take you along the Pier
Everything will lighten up
If you feel too frightened
I’ll make it disappear, dear

Darling, don’t be nervous
I’ll understand
If you’ll let me go
I did this on purpose
Now, when I’m missing you
I’ll stop eating food
And I’ll squeeze into a dress
So I can be like you
And then I’ll see your bitterness
And why you’re leaving too
Maybe, I’ll put you to a test
And say that I love you
I think that I love you

Sunny days
That left my skin dark red
You squeeze me
Till these thoughts leave my head
If it gets too complicated
I’ll give up and be frustrated
Can you see what’s wrong?
If you feel like you’ve been hated
This love’s too overrated
See what’s going on, on

Darling, don’t be nervous
I’ll understand
If you’ll let me go
I did this on purpose
Now, when I’m missing you
I’ll stop eating food
And I’ll squeeze into a dress
So I can be like you
And then I’ll see your bitterness
And why you’re leaving too
Maybe, I’ll put you to a test
And say that I love you
I think that I love you

Take me back to live at home
Take me back to Albert Road

Now I’m missing you
I’ve stopped eating food
And I’ve squeezed into your dress
So I can feel like you
But then I saw your bitterness
And why you left me too
I thought I’d put you to a test
And say that I love you
I think that I love you

And I stopped eating food
And I squeezed into your dress
So I could feel like you
But then I saw your bitterness
And why you left me too
Maybe I’ll put you to a test
And say that I love you
Now it seems you loved me too

You Break Me (Ed Sheeran 2006)

Well my friend it seems we’ve come too far to disagree
My knees feel weak and I fell too fast
The tide is high but we swam in too deep
To catch your breath you tear me apart piece by piece
You can take away all this mess
And I could never think anything less of you

‘Cos you break me
You numb me
You still seem to stun me
This pain has outrun me
You are all I have left

The tide flows out as I leave empty rooms
To spur this on we left that room too long
You open wide and all the lies flow out
To eat you whole
But we both know that you’re too cold
And she said ‘I can put away all those lies
And show you there’s no surprise in me’

Well still, you break me
You numb me
You still seem to stun me
This pain has outrun me
You are all that I have left

Exorcise these demons
But they keep talking to me
I am no believer
But I believe you will relieve me
I believe you will relieve me
And that’s what’s going on

‘Cos you break me
You numb me
You still seem to stun me
This pain has outrun me
You are all that I have left

You break me

Iím Glad Iím Not You (Ed Sheeran 2007)

It’s been a while since we were here
Been too long my fear is
Holding back the memories of your eyes
Scattered notes and broken glass you had left me
All that’s left is shattered hearts
It’s plain enough for us to see that
You’ve got me
You’ve got me

We’re just friends tangled up in loose ends
I feel it coming around again
Let me know where you let your heart go
And I will just pretend
That I have never felt this way
Since you I have never felt this way
Since you
I feel strange
Playing games
It’s no fuss
I’m not in love

Twisted tunes, a melody of spite
If you give me the words then I might
Let go unknown feelings
Telling me that I cannot fight
When you speak that shite
Let go unknown feelings
Telling me that
You’ve got me
You’ve got me

We’re just friends tangled up in loose ends
I feel it coming around again
Let me know where you let your heart go
And I will just pretend
That I have never felt this way
Since you I have never felt this way
Since you
I feel strange
Playing games
It’s no fuss
I’m not in love

I lost it in your kiss, your lips,
Sweetness, in your smile
Your words make me whole
But your scars demand a healer’s touch
It’s true
I’m glad I’m not you

You Need to Cut Your Hair (Ed Sheeran 2006)

Well I walked from my house to yours
In a warm cold April rain
We barely went outdoors
And your family took the blame
Take time to be with you
She can only glare
I’m a bad influence, that’ll do
‘Cos I need to cut my hair
Wash my mouth, change my clothes
Just don’t talk to those friends of yours
Tell them not to come here anymore
Time to go, don’t be slow
This’ll only take a mo’
Take yourself right out of my door

It’s just that they don’t care
Dad said beware, watch your back
Just don’t reply to that woman there
And even if she makes a fuss
Just ignore that trust
And don’t give in to lust
And leave that one alone
The girl’s trouble

Time spent in burnt-down shed
Add up near two days
Fall down and cut my head
Take time to misbehave
Spend time and be with you
She can only glare
‘Cos you’re a bad influence, that’ll do
Boy you need to cut your hair
Wash your mouth, change your clothes
Just don’t talk to those friends of yours
Tell them not to come here anymore
Time to go, don’t be slow
This’ll only take a mo’
Take yourself right out of my door

It’s just that they don’t care
Dad said beware, watch your back
Just don’t reply to that woman there
And even if she makes a fuss
Just ignore that trust
And don’t give in to lust
And leave that one alone

This is the dancing song
Close your eyes
Hypnotise to the beat
And the movement of the week
Do that shuffle of your feet
And pound out the fever, either
Dance as you’re a true believer
Cleaner lives are what you don’t see
Fell the weight, gravitate
Feel the pace of me
This world is 2D
The only thing that’s free in life is love
And that don’t come cheap

It’s just that they don’t care
Dad said beware, watch your back
Just don’t reply to that woman there
And even if she makes a fuss
Just ignore that trust
And don’t give in to lust
And leave that one alone
The girl’s trouble

Sara (Ed Sheeran 2007)

Sara, what you do is enlighten my mind
Oh wow, I said
Sara, what you do is make my soul unwind

Hey now ‘Cos your hair is blonde, your eyes are blue
Half the guys I know are after you
Cheer me up when I’m in a mood
So I thought I’d write a song for you

And may I say, you look like an angel today
May I say, take me to the place where your mind lays
If only to make you smile today
‘Cos you are great, I thought I’d say that

Sara, reminds me of drunken talks in a hammock
Behind a can of Strongbow
Oh wow, I said
Sara, you say that you don’t look good when you do
Even with that soul

Your hair is blonde, your eyes are blue
Half the guys I know are after you
Cheer me up when I’m in a mood
So I thought I’d write a song for you

And may I say, you look like an angel today
May I say, take me to the place where your mind lays
If only to make you smile today
‘Cos you are great, I thought I’d say that

May I say, you look great
May I play this to make your day

Move On (Ed Sheeran & Alonestar 2007)

Now it seems I’ve been young, dug my hole in the ground
To me there’s only up, there ain’t no point in looking down
However hard I try, I only get weaker
Seems my lies and worries got my mind in a sleeper hold

What you gotta do is never get yourself down
Bastards do that for you, get you deeper in the ground
Keep out of trouble, ain’t no trouble being pure
Seems like all you bastards gave me something to ignore now

Move on, forget it
Now move on, forget it

When I first started this rapping shit I felt pressure from haters
Became invaded with sadists and just developed a hater radar
And made for the stars, kept my grind in the dark
And then appeared with a remedy kicking rhymes with a melody
Hennesey shots and glocks, all these fools on the block
Who said you gotta be a gangster now to raise to the top?
I'm just a normal, casual, usual, everyday type of guy
With my head in the sky
Ed Sheeran, Urban Angel coming ready to die
So see the signs, stand to the side
Open your eyes and take a look and realise
The resurrection's arrived
And as the mist clears, homie I arise
From my tomb in disguise
I'm all alone, Alonestar
Urban Angel rising from the ashes
Surprising all haters, guiding, advising them all to steady move
Now back up!

Move on, forget it
Now move on, forget it

All I want in this cold world is to make music and use it
Not to abuse it and get affected, infected with the who's who of music
Who did it, who is it, who's in it, who …what the fuck does it matter?
Chitter chatter, don't matter, yidder, yidder, yadder
It don't matter to me
All I want is a bit of dignity in me to battle this industry freely
To be me in this seedy, needy world, can you hear me?
Yeah, yeah, can you hear me?

Yellow Pages (Ed Sheeran 2007)

I felt the fall on my breast
At the bottom of my stomach
She put my hand on her chest
While she looked into my eyes
You rescued me
And called up these words in threes
And you know I can’t forget it
And 10 months on you liberate truth
See, I was wrong on how I hate you
And it’s the worst thing that I did

When I read through you
You weren’t translated
So I looked up love in the Yellow Pages
So I’d be free from it

See, all this truth sparks lies in me
Just to demonstrate, aggravate sympathy
The key is just to ignore
Even if this time has made me unsure
And 12 months on I’m back in my mood
See, I got drunk and said I loved you
And it’s the worst thing that I did

When I read through you
You weren’t translated
So I looked up love in the Yellow Pages
So I’d be free from it

Smile (Ed Sheeran 2006)

Just give me a pen and I’ll write my worries
Now and again I’ll try and not see that you don’t care
Taking the time to taste and savour
Life’s bitter wine and childish behaviour
But you don’t care

And hey, I don’t speak that language of youth
And hey, oh not the one that speaks truth
And hey, I lay in this world for a while
When all is lost just smile

They’ve written the dates and the times to follow
See all the fakes that look so hollow
But you don’t care
What ever happened to the youth and culture?
Wear chains and the same fecking Lonsdale jumper
So you don’t care

And hey, I don’t speak that language of youth
And hey, oh not the one that speaks truth
And hey, I lay in this world for a while
When all is lost just smile

Postcards (Ed Sheeran 2006)

Face me, are you tired of living?
Replace, she was so unforgiving
And I’m so frustrated, so dilated
And she’s telling me I’ve wasted my time
And I’m running back like, just to face the facts right
To tell me your voice takes me through the night

Your smile and your memory
Simply eases me to sleep
In my ear while the whispering
Melts my heart on every beat

Still you’re singing lullabies and postcards to this place
And we’re asking for so much more
Now you’re bringing smiles and laughter to this face
While bad memories are in pieces on the floor

Face me, are you tired of living?
Replace, she was so unforgiving
And I’m so frustrated, so dilated
And she’s telling me I’ve wasted my time
And I’m running back like, just to face the facts right
To tell me your voice takes me through the night

Time past, heal this broken heart
Pulled away that sellotape
Take your time, ‘cos I won’t mind
I doubt if I even know that I’m awake

And still you’re singing lullabies and postcards to this place
And we’re asking for so much more
Now you’re bringing smiles and laughter to this face
While bad memories are in pieces on the floor

Two Blokes and A Double Bass (Ed Sheeran 2006)

Sing the song Celestial Man
Shake the thing your mother gave ya!
Tear your lungs out, scream your heart
Be on your worst behaviour
I’d wager that you’re gonna take it
Make you fight nature, born and raised in
Funk those things that make you go bump in the night
Turn off the dark, put on the light
And he said ‘You and your big cheeks have got me’
Along with ‘Disarm’ and ‘Flooded Quarry’
Turn off the base with the beat-box detox
Pull off the pace, while you sing with no socks
Lampshades, carpets, the stage black
You make the room’s hands laugh as they clap
You make my mouth water with support acts
They could even match you in talent - ignore that!
Gary Dunne and Newton Faulkner ain’t wrong
He’s got me singing to ‘Amerikan Folk Song’
Loop pedal class is used as weaponry
You gotta know your enemy
Gotta check your distance
Don’t talk, only whisper
Slap the base so hard you get blisters
Chikka boom, boom, chikka boom
JP beat-box, feet as flip-flops
Doing the hip hop, mixed with the warm sock
And Stephanie propped up, up by the mic stand
This ain’t no fake, it’s music in your hand
As you run into the centre of the crowd
Silence falls like water
You just wanna shout ‘Wow!’
How did they even have the guts to do it ?
If your name’s Nizlopi, then there ain’t much to it
‘Cos you and your big cheeks have got me spinning around now

The West Coast of Clare (Andy Irvine)

Sorrow and sadness, bitterness, grief
Memories I have of you
Won't leave me in peace
My mind was running back
To the west coast of Clare
Thinking of you
And the times we had there

I walked to Spanish Point
I knew I'd find you there
I stood on the white strand
You were everywhere
Vivid memories fade
But the mood still remains
I wish I could go back
And be with you again

In Milltown there's a pub
It’s there that I sat down
I see you everywhere
Your face is all around
The search for times past
Contains such sweet pain
I'll banish lonesome thoughts
But they’ll return again

I walk along the shore
The rain in my face
My mind is numb with grief
Of you there is no trace
I'll think of this again
In far off lands I roam
Walking with you
By this cold Atlantic fog

Sorrow and sadness, bitterness, grief
Memories I have of you
Won't leave me in peace
My mind was running back
To the west coast of Clare
Thinking of you
And the times we had there

I Canít Spell (Ed Sheeran 2007)

I found the words to say how I feel
But I just can’t spell them
I lost the nerve in a Suffolk field
So you can tell them
That I’m a different man with a different tune
I didn’t find love until last June
But I lost it, just like I lost it all
I tried to use it to break my fall
‘Cos I need something, anything to replace you
Or something close

Hidden Track - You Break Me 2 (Ed Sheeran 2006)

Well my friend it seems we’ve come too far to disagree
My knees feel weak and I fell too fast
The tide is high but we swam in too deep
To catch your breath you tear me apart piece by piece
You can take away all this mess
And I could never think anything less of you

‘Cos you break me
You numb me
You still seem to stun me
This pain has outrun me
You are all I have left

The tide flows out as I leave empty rooms
To spur this on we left that room too long
You open wide and all the lies flow out
To eat you whole
But we both know that you’re too cold
And she said ‘I can put away all those lies
And show you there’s no surprise in me’

Well still
‘Cos you break me
You numb me
You still seem to stun me
This pain has outrun me
You are all I have left

Exorcise these demons
But they keep talking to me
I am no believer
But I believe you will relieve me
I believe you will relieve me
And that’s what’s going on

‘Cos you break me
You numb me
You still seem to stun me
This pain has outrun me
You are all that I have left

You break me

Open Your Ears (Ed Sheeran 2005)

Can’t get you off my mind
Look at me and you will find
Time after time it seems
I’ll say what I don’t mean

In your world we were the same
In mine now you’re the one to blame
You can’t remember my name
We’re lost, it’s such a shame

Listen to me
Stop making me see
What I’ve been waiting for
Listen to me
Stop making me see

I’m strong yet proud
I’m quiet yet loud
And I’m everything
You want in me
I’m small yet tall
I have it all
And I’m everything
You want me to be

Listen to me
Stop making me see
What I’ve been waiting for
Listen to me
Stop making me see

And I still feel like
I need you still
And I still feel like
I’m on some pill
And I still feel like
I need you still

Listen to me
Stop making me see
What I’ve been waiting for
Listen to me
Making me see

Beyond the Pale (Ed Sheeran 2005)

Just lay it all down on me
It’s getting harder for me to breathe
Just want to know if it will be
Just want to know if it is me

And you know I’ve learned from my mistakes
And how much have I got to lose?
You find my heart is hard to break
Can’t keep playing the fool

Breathe in, exhale
To turn to move beyond the pale
Flag up, set sail
To find what’s there beyond the pale

I feel like I’ve gone to the end of the world
What do I have to do?

You know I’ve learned from my mistakes
How much have I got to lose?
You find my heart hard to break
Can’t keep playing the fool

Breathe in, exhale
To turn to move beyond the pale
Flag up, set sail
To find what’s there beyond the pale

What can I do
Just to let you know
That you’re in my mind?
To try and justify
The way you liberate me
Every time

In Memory (Ed Sheeran 2006)

I write this song in memory of
The wayward smile
The boy we won’t forget
The soul you took away from us
The river flows
The tears that we wept

Missing you
Is all that needs to be said
More than blue
The words inside my head

And I know that you’re gone

The cheeky smile
Of jokes and laughs
The memories of times
We crossed the line
The stepping stones
Across my mind
Washed away
We all now feel so blind

Missing you
Is all that needs to be said
More than blue
The words inside my head

And I know that you’re gone

Goodbye

Insomniacís Lullaby (Ed Sheeran 2005)

I’m getting very edgy
Cos you’re trying to take this from me
And it’s something that I wanted so bad
Cos you’re the definition
Of someone who has to ruin
The best thing that I ever had
Cos you’re a jealous girl
And all I can say is
It’s your fault but partially mine
For losing hope
For not treating you right
But that will disappear in time

All I gotta do is pass you by
Never say what’s wrong
Whenever I say why?

Standing in the corner
Shadowed by the light
To you I seem much smaller
But I know it might be you
How much better could I do
To be myself, not someone else?
I’m losing sleep
I live only for the week

I’ve grown to ignore you
Cos when I seem to bore you
You pretend that you’re not interested
Your eyes start to twinkle
Your smile starts to widen
And I just seem to try and forget
But you pay me no attention
Even though I do
But I don’t care as long as you’re mine
It’s happening every time

All I gotta do is pass you by
Never say what’s wrong
Whenever I say why?

Standing in the corner
Shadowed by the light
To you I seem much smaller
But I know it might be you
How much better could I do
To be myself, not someone else?
I’m losing sleep
I live only for the week

And I’m falling harder now it seems
My slip-ups haunt me in my dreams
And I can’t sleep although I think I can
It’s insomnia I think I have
But who cares when I’m not your man?

Standing in the corner
Shadowed by the light
To you I seem much smaller
But I know it might be you
How much better could I do
To be myself, not someone else?
I’m losing sleep
I live only for the week

Quiet Ballad of Ed (Ed Sheeran 2005)

In shadow there lies hope
Cut tension with a knife
I find it hard to cope
Stop playing with my life
You analyse my fears
Analyse my dreams
Choke on burning tears
Through my silent screams

Things aren’t what they seem

Tell a hundred craftsmen to work on me
Tell this army of angels to make me breathe
Open doors just to take away the key
I’ll let you all see that I’m doing better

Watch me fall
As I stumble at your feet
Always losing in this game
Your lies cut me deep
And you don’t even know my name
With your consistency
To always make me crawl
And my durability
Not affected at all

Still things aren’t what they seem

Tell a hundred craftsmen to work on me
Tell this army of angels to make me breathe
Open doors just to take away the key
I’ll let you all see that I’m doing better

Feel the pain
On my brain
Feel the strain
As I start to decay
Feel the strain
Every passing day
Feel the pain
As I start to decay

Tell a hundred craftsmen to work on me
Tell this army of angels to make me breathe
Open doors just to take away the key
I’ll let you all see that I’m doing better

No Luck (Ed Sheeran 2005)

I’m screaming out upon my face
Followed footsteps catch my pace
Broken windows fall in place
Now shattered lovers find their place

We’d flirt
And you’d treat me like dirt
All the pain and the hurt
Just to make matters worse

And I see you all over him
Irresistible sin
When can we be the same again?
What can I do to be making you see?
To come out clean?
You’re better off with me

We’re stuck
Taking time and wasting mine
No luck
Running around and crashing down
In you I trust nevermore
Leaving you in sand and glass

All I ever felt for you
Went up in a cloud of smoke
How I could I be such a fool
To ever think that we were close?

And I see you all over him
Irresistible sin
When can we be the same again?
What can I do to be making you see?
To come out clean?
You’re better off with me

We’re stuck
Taking time and wasting mine
No luck
Running around and crashing down
In you I trust nevermore
Leaving you in sand and glass

Stevensong (Ed Sheeran 2005)

Stevie was a boy
Who turned into a man
He never had no master plan
But I knew that he could
Find right from wrong
Sing me a different song
He told me which road to take
And now I’m gone

Keep on singing
Make her life whole
Stevie you’re winning
And I just feel cold
Take your life beyond the mark
You can do no wrong
When I lose my way in the dark
Keep singing your song

Please come follow me
I find it hard to breathe
Please come follow me
I find it hard to breathe

Billy Ruskin (Ed Sheeran 2005)

Mr Ruskin come and paint my picture
We’re losing sleep 'cos we steal the week
Now who’s your best friend?
Can you introduce me?
See I can’t seem to even let you breathe

When I dance with Billy Ruskin in my mind’s eye
Please let me forget that I’m standing on my own
And I am my own best friend and I need me to see
That I am more than what is hiding in me

Come and show me if you can
See I know you’re me
But I can’t seem to understand
If you know me, place my hand on mine
And we will resurrect the time
That we lost when you left my mind
It’s psycho-paranoia disappearing in time
Come and show me what makes you tick
I need you to get out of my mind quick

When I dance with Billy Ruskin in my mind’s eye
Please let me forget that I’m standing on my own
And I am my own best friend and I need me to see
That I am more than what is hiding in me

Spark (Ed Sheeran 2005)

Take me with you I do declare
I love you dearly through here and there
What can I do to make you share?
What can I do to make you care?

The world is harsh
I’m stuck in the dark
I’ll make my mark
I’ve got my spark

We’d be together through bad or worse
Sending letters we shall converse
We could do better but we must first
Make amends
That depends
Will you be my friend?

The world is harsh
I’m stuck in the dark
I’ll make my mark
I’ve got my spark

Pause (Ed Sheeran & Alonestar 2006)

You know I got to get away
To find some peace and sanity
I’ve been playing hide-and-seek too long
Shaking, making, everybody waking
Setting the hi-fi bleed
Keeping me back
While you’re spinning my track
That’ll knock you off your feet

Monkey see what monkey do
But I’m a monkey telling you
I just think that we should take a break
Tickity-tock the clock
With the hip-hop
And alonestar backing me up
We won’t stop
I gotta be searching for my peace of mind
Now let the track rewind

And play, let the music play
It came, so let the music say what it feels
Shame, shame it took too long
To see that you were wrong
Now turn the song back on

This is Alonestar coming at you
With a new style
Kicking dust
Ready to bust
It's Urban Angel
Artistic, flipping the script
Who d'you really want to get it with?
Ed and Alonestar
We're like live wires sparking
Ready to blow
We've already sown our seeds
We're just waiting to grow - blow
We're gonna lift you like a shock to your body
Metaphorical speech when we come and see
You ducking for cover
Sheeran Lock coming ready to rock
With Urban Angel and Alonestar
And Ed - keep it locked
Let the beat pump
Drop the bass but don't stop
We're kicking the sound
Let the bass bins pound
We're gonna roll
Can you feel me now with my body?
Get down to the sound
It's Ed Sheeran in the place
And Alonestar rising up
We gotta rise up
I said rise up

And play, let the music play
It came, so let the music say what it feels
Shame, shame it took so long
To see that you were wrong
Now turn the song back on

The Sea (Ed Sheeran 2006)

Pass me a drink
You say it’s gonna take a while
Your consciousness sinks
Tears from a crocodile

You’re wasting your time
Giving me the speech
You try to, don’t reach
Your smile

You’re holding your tears
Your inside is dead
You’re eating your fears
In a cigarette

You’ve waited too long
To finally see
The sunshine in the rain
Is as deep as the sea

I’ve taken the blow
It’s all down on paper
Had fun in the snow
But no ‘see you later’

You’re wasting your time
Giving me the speech
You try to, don’t reach
Your smile

You’re holding your tears
Your inside is dead
You’re eating your fears
In a cigarette

You’ve waited too long
To finally see
The sunshine in the rain
Is as deep as the sea

Way Home (Ed Sheeran 2005)

Well I once heard a story about a run-down home
Where a man and his thoughts lived all alone
He tried to live, no effort was shown
He’s slowly finding a way back home

He had a family with smiles and frowns
They never could solve his way to be down
Cos he’s one dog who don’t want a bone
He’s slowly finding a way back home

He had a nice house with windows and doors
He said to his wife what’s mine is yours
But the seeds of deception are soon to be sown
He’s slowly finding a way back home

His children have left but the rooms are still there
His misses the noise and the scents in their hair
But far from the nest the babies have flown
He’s slowly finding a way back home

His wife was an angel sent from above
He never returned her kisses or love
But soon he’d found that she’d overgrown
This man who’s finding a way back home

So the leaves are all dead in this broken man’s June
The rain will still fall on the sunny afternoon
He stares at the floor, no more to roam
He’s slowly finding a way back home

Well I once heard a story about a run-down home
Where a man with regrets lived all alone
He tried to live, no effort was shown
He’ll never find a way back home

Bonus Track (Ed Sheeran 2005)

I want to be real
Not some conscience to myself
The way you worship, never ending
Some idol who’s pretending to be true
How you put upon yourself
A man who never seems
To answer to you words
So go and make me over

I’m a fly upon your neck
You can’t control me
I have my words, my voice
My strengths, my choice
And I can cut as deep
Just as deep as I need

Don’t want your advice
Cos I’ve made up my own mind
The way you bore me with the stories
Of far and distant times
I’ve heard it before
So don’t try that on me
The way you worship, never-ending
Some idol who’s pretending to be true
It could be you
Brainwashed by the lies
It’s no surprise
That you’d wanna waste your time

I’m a fly upon your neck
You can’t control me
I have my words, my voice
My strengths, my choice
And I can cut as deep
Just as deep as I need

Moody Ballad of Ed (Ed Sheeran 2003)

Come on now
Dry your eyes
I'm sick of all your lies
I've grown to despise you
Already sick of what you're saying
Hoping now I'm only praying
My baby's gone away
And I've already packed my bags
You didn't know me
(I've run away)
You couldn't show me
(What you have to say)
My one and only
Has gone away
Far away
You'll never leave me alone
Now I'm off on my own
I'll never ring your phone again
And still you keep on crying
If I said I loved you
I'd be lying
You need to dry your eyes
And I've still gone to pack my bags
You didn't know me
(I've run away)
You couldn't show me
(What you have to say)
My one and only
Has gone away
Far away

Misery (Ed Sheeran 2004)

Well, I've walked this street
Well, I've walked this street before
And everyone's locked up their door
'Cos they heard me coming
And I've been running
From what
I don't know if she's there
Or if she's cares
It's taken you a long time to see
You've got a goldfish memory
This song's for you, not for me
In misery
You said we went too fast
And you said we wouldn't last
Now I've put the past behind me
And I'm running
From what
I don't know if she's there
Or if she cares
It's taken you a long time to see
You've got a goldfish memory
This song's for you, not for me
In misery
It's taken you a long time to see
In misery
And everyone's locked up their door
'Cos they heard me coming
And I've been running
From what
I don't know if she's there
Or if she's cares
It's taken you a long time to see
You've got a goldfish memory
This song's for you, not for me
In misery
You said we went too fast
And you said we wouldn't last
Now I've put the past behind me
And I'm running
From what
I don't know if she's there
Or if she cares
It's taken you a long time to see
You've got a goldfish memory
This song's for you, not for me
In misery
It's taken you a long time to see
In misery

Typical Average (Ed Sheeran 2002)

Strings on my guitar are rusty
Even my best friends don't trust me
Everybody thinks I must be crazy
'Cos, I'm your typical average teen
If you know what I mean
(Typical average teen)
'Cos, I'm your typical average teen
If you know what I mean
(Typical average teen)
Everything's in a haze
Yeah, the drink's got me in a daze
Everything's blurry
Oh, what's happened to me?
Say, I'm your typical average teen
If you know what I mean
(Typical average teen)
Now, I'm your typical average teen
If you know what I mean
(Typical average teen)

Addicted (Ed Sheeran 2004)

I think I took too much
I'm addicted to your touch
But I'm crying
In shame again
And now I'm high as a kite
And I know I might be gone
When you get home
Oh well, we've come this far
You're my Venus
And I'm your Mars
And we've passed the moon
and stars
And I'm gone
But now I'm high as a kite
And I know I'm might be gone
When you get home
I'm high as a kite
And I know I'm almost gone
When you get home
So please come home

I Love You (Ed Sheeran 2004)

I'm standing on a mountain
Waiting for you to come
You were sitting counting
The days that I had gone
The note I wrote
I wrapped up in a cigarette
Burned away the memories
I tried to forget
But not yet
Wishing my life away
But these three words
I have to say to you
My baby blue
You know it's true
I love you
I love you
How can I tell you?
I don't know what to say
This chance that I won't miss
But I miss you anyway
I feel your pain
It's turning me insane
Thrown away
I had to take the last train home

But then you came
Wishing my life away
But these three words
I have to say to you
My baby blue
You know it's true
I love you
Wishing my life away
These three words
I have to say to you
My baby blue
You know it's true
You know it's true
I love you
I love you
I love you
