Ed Sheeran – I'm A Mess lyrics

Tempo sees Ed not feeling his best.

Ooh 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 my hope
All my words are all over written on the signs
But you're on my road walking me home
Home, 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
And 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 oh I've only caused you pain
You know but all of my words will always below
Of all the love you spoke
When you're on my road walking me home
Home, home, 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
For how long I love my lover
And now, for how long, long I love my lover
Now, now, for how long, long I love my lover
Now now, for how long, long I love my lover
(I feel love)
For how long, long I love my lover
For how long, long I love my lover

Feel it all over now
For how long, long I love my lover
Now, now, for how long, long I love my lover
Feel it all over now
For how long I love my lover
Now now
For how long, long I love my lover

    He's talking about how he doesn't want to fall in love, and wants his lover to just be playing him as well. But she starts to fall in love with him, and he starts to too but is too afraid of what will happen and tries to stop their romance. Thus leading to hurting her, and almost deepening his feelings for her along the way. And he wonders how long he will continue to love her, or how long he will stay because he is too afraid to truly show his love.
