Ed Sheeran – Bloodstream lyrics

I've been spinning out for time
Couple women by my side
I got
sin on my mind
Sipping on red wine
I've been
sitting here for ages
Ripping out the pages
How to
get so faded
How to get so faded
Oh
No
no don't leave me lonely now
If you love me how
You never loved me
Ooh
Color crimsing in my eyes
Wanted too you could free my mind
This is
how it ends
I feel the chemicals burning in my bloodstream

Fading out again
I feel the chemicals burning in my bloodstream
So tell me when it kicks in

I've been looking for a love
Thought I'd find it
really boring
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 her Broken heart
Oh
No no don't leave me lonely now
If you love me how
You
never loved me
Ooh
Color crimsing in my eyes
Wanted too you could free my mind
This is how it ends
I feel the chemicals burning in my bloodstream

Fading
out again
I feel the chemicals burning in my bloodstream
So tell me when it kicks in

So tell me when it kicks in
All the voices in my mind
Calling out across the line
All the voices in
my mind
Calling out across the line
All the voices in my mind
Calling out across the line
All the voices in my mind
Calling out across the line
All the voices in my mind
Calling out across the line
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 heart
Tell me when it kicks in
I saw scars upon her
Tell me when it kicks in
Broken heart
Tell me when it kicks in
I saw scars upon her
Tell me when it kicks in
Broken heart
Tell me when it kicks in
I saw scars upon her
Tell me when it kicks in
Broken heart
So Tell me when it kicks in
I saw scars upon her
Tell me when it kicks in
Broken heart
Tell me when it kicks in
I saw scars upon her
Tell me when it kicks in
Broken heart

    I interpret this song as Ed feeling like he's becoming "far-gone," putting himself in a corner that he was concerned about getting to. Maybe filling up a void with alcohol, probably not to the point of being an alcoholic but using this as a way of escaping his depression? The bridge I think either is talking about the temptation he's facing or self-harming. He has the line "This is when it ends, I feel the chemicals burn in my bloodstream." This is when it ends, comes off as his final thought on his growing hopelessness. However, he has "Lord forgive me for the things I've done" is actually a pretty hopeful line. I'm sure it was written with the self-deprecation, but instead of the "Lord hit with the deserved lightning bolt" but more of a loving "I hope your holding out your hand God." Actually probably a mixture of both. Nevertheless, Ed accidentally wrote something of hope in his song of hopelessness.
