Ed Sheeran – Give Me Love lyrics

[Verse 1]
Give me love like her
Cause lately I've been waking up alone

Pain 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

[Hook]
Give a little time to me to burn this out
We'll play hide and seek to turn this around
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


[Verse 2]
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

[Hook x2]
Give a little time to me to burn this out
We'll play hide and seek to turn this around
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

[Break x12]
M-my my, m-my my, m-my my, give me love, lover
(Love me, give me love)

[Hook]
Give a little time to me to burn this out
We'll play hide and seek to turn this around
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

    This song is about someone who made him feel great. He wants to fight for the relationship but it's just not working out. He wants to tell her how he feels but he can only do that when he's drunk. This song fits me perfectly. 7 month relationship with someone and then suddenly he decided he didn't want it and completely ignores the fact that I love him. Dunno what to do anymore:/

    This song could've been written for me. Three years ago I lost my wife, the mother of my children to cancer. Since then I have felt so lost and alone and thought I would never love again until I met a girl last year who stole my heart. At first it was good but over time I have come to realise that she just doesn't feel the same way, so I broke up with her last week. I love her so much it hurts but I want her to be happy in her life so I let her go, but if she gave me the smallest sign that she felt the same way and wanted me back I would be with her again. : '(

    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 think its about someone that he just can't talk to. Even though all he does is think about her and wish she would talk to him. He has tried to talk to her, but things don't feel right. Then, when he gets drunk, he feels confident enough to talk to her and they have the most special time and they will never forget it. But then when they are sober they try and talk but it just wont work, and he doesn't know what to do.
