Give me love like her, 'cause 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, oh give
Me love.

Give me love like never before, 'cause 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, 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, 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 (Love me, love me, love me).

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

    Ed had a love named Alice and she left him even though he loved he deeply, she had a miscarriage as reference given in his song Small Bump, I think this song is about her, him wanting her to give him love because he loves her so much, he hates aking up alone, he just wants her to be there with him, when Ed sings this song he uses a cupid for the video and the cupid goes around sharing love to everyone while Ed is all alone and I that meant that he is asking the cupid to give him love since she's giving everyone else love, also he mentions all the things they meaning Ed and Alice loved doing as a couple, like playing hide and seek and kissing due to the line about how he want is the taste that your lips allow in this song is mostly about him missing his one true love, he also expresses that he is drinking alcohol which is true because Ed was once an Alcoholic but now he has gotten over it by putting his thoughts to songs and making such lovely music, it's really hard to explain his songs because they take a while, when you do get the explanations you realize that it's really an amazing song.

    Maybe he had loved a woman before. A kind of love that kept him drowning even he's with another woman now. Based on the lyrics, maybe she was his true love though she's already gone. Maybe he's trying to forget her that's why he's asking for love like never before. Try listening to his acoustic version, you could feel his anguish while singing this song. It's just like, all of the words are coming out from his heart. Such a great song.

    I think its someone he lost, he didn't realize how much love she gave him until she was gone and now he misses it. Even though he misses her he needs time to figure out thing but at the same time still wants her. The only way he prevent himself from moving on is when he is drunk, signifying the loss of control and spulring out the truth and giving in.

    Song about really being in love with someone, however they don't feel the same - or they don't seem to be showing the same effort/feeling back to you. "give me love like hers" - referring to an ex, or previous partner. "give a little time to me or burn this out" - like an ultimatum - give me some of your time or stop leading me on/sending me mixed signals
    "we'll play hide and seek to turn this around" - hide and seek is a game about being lost and found. He wants to be found by her and only her. "blood is drowning in alcohol" he is drinking himself to drown his sorrows.

    I believe this song is itentifying what it is like to love someone that either doesn tlove you back or you are forbidden to love. It is a touching song and means so much to me. It brought such comfort to me in a upsetting time and is still helping me get through it. Its a beautiful song.
