Ed Sheeran – Sunburn lyrics

You're not her, though I try to see you differently
I tow the line. See, I'm searching for what used to be mine, all mine.
And I saw your eyes and I saw Alice staring back at me
So I will try to find another one who's suited to me as well as her

I've moved far away from you and I want to see you here beside me, dear, but things aren't clear

When we never even tried, we never even talked
We never even thought in the long run
Whenever it was painful, whenever I was away
I'd miss you
And I miss you

She was mine, I was hers and all that's in between
When she would cry, I would shelter her and keep her from the darkness that will be

If I moved far away from you and I want to see you here beside me, dear, but things aren't clear, woah

When we never even tried, we never even talked
We never even thought in the long run
Whenever it was painful, whenever I was away
I'd miss you
And I miss you

Don't drop me in, it's not my time
If you cut deep then I might learn
That you scarred and left me like sunburn

Don't drop me in, it's not my time
If you cut deep then I might learn
That you'd Scar and leave me, like sunburn

When we never even tried, we never even talked
We never even thought in the long run
Whenever it was painful, whenever I was away
I'd miss you
And I miss you

    I think it's clearly about ed and alice loving eachother, and when you listen to uni, sunburn suddenly becomes much more understandable. They let life come between them. She had to go to uni and he had his own life now down in london. Although I think it was much more easier for her to let go, and he's still hung up about her. The feeling and love will never go as it's his first love. Much like a sunburn scare. He did say in an interview he knows they'll marry one day. I just hope life doesn't get in the way.

    I think that he has fallen for someone that he didn't ever think he would because she is a close friend. But I think that they were bestfriends and they would tell each other everything, so when she got a boyfriend ed felt jealous and didn't want to share her as he soon got close and fell! It is basically not letting go and hurts and stings just like a sunburn if you spend to much time in it, in ed's case with her then they will soon leave you hurt and stinging as you didn't realise what was actually happening!

    I believe it is him falling for a girl, a close friend of some sort. But then she doesn't feel the same way or led him on in some way. She then moves on and it leaves him upset and feeling as though she never gave him a chance, maybe he feels like he is not worth it and will have to change, it was a milestone and will never go away, like the scar of a sunburn.
