My mind is a warrior,
My heart is a foreigner
,
My eyes are the colour of red like a sunset,
Never keep it bottled up,
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,
Oh I'll never let you down,
Now 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 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,

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 I see it in your movements tonight,
If we should ever do this right,
I'm never gonna let you down,
Oh I'll never let you down,
We'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 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 x4

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,
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.

    I think grade 8 is about a guy who really, really likes this girl, but doesn't know if she likes him back, "strumming on my heartstrings like you were a grade 8" implies that she knows how the guy feels and is messing with his feelings but stringing him along and playing mind games, so he doesn't have a clue about he she feels towards him, and he just wishes that she would say how she feels, because he know he will never let her down.

    My meaning to grade 8 is the chorus mainly because my friend hector died and he loved guitar and I lovesd him with all my heart so when ed sheeran sings 'your strumming on my heart strings' it really means a lot to me and when he says ' like you where in grade 8, I've never felt this way i'll pick your feet up off of the ground and never ever let you down' it means alot because I met hector when I was in year 8 and I did feel like I cuold never ever let him go so thank you ed sheeran your album has changed my life so much and your an inspiration to me.

    He thinks the girl he's falling for will help him get over someone who left him scarred, "my heart is a foreigner" is an example of his weariness. "but i never felt this way," it's as though the last person he was with wasn't love, it's as though love is a new thing for him and he's just beginning to learn. But that's just a small segment of what I think it means.
