Ed Sheeran – Touch And Go lyrics

[Intro]
Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh

[Verse 1]
Waking up, midnight November
And just still in my bed
It's kinda rough, cause since I met ya
There's things we've never said

[Pre-Chorus]
So if I go for a little while longer
When I'm home we can talk about the big falls of the road
If you say go, I would stop everything oh
My heart would play the role now
And act like it's never been broke

[Chorus]
Though my soul, oh oh oh
Lately I really need to know
How long, how long, can we be touch and go
Oh my soul, oh oh oh
How long, how long, can we be touch and go

[Verse 2]
It's not enough, to say I want ya
Cause I'll say anything
I'm holding out, to feel without a doubt
I had have just been questioning it

[Pre-Chorus]
If I go for a little while longer
When I'm home we can talk about the big falls of the road
If you say go, I would stop everything oh
My heart would play the role now
And act like it's never been broke

[Chorus]
Though my soul, oh oh oh
Lately I really need to know
How long, how long, can we be touch and go
Oh my soul, oh oh oh
How long, how long, can we be

[Bridge]
All of my bones, they scream I'm right
If you're taking me home to stay the night
Darling my soul would heal

[Outro]
If you say go, I would stop everything oh
My heart would play the wrong
And act like it's never been broke, though my soul
Lately I really need to know
How long, how long, can we be touch and go
Oh my soul, how long
How long, how long, can we be touch and go
How long, how long, can we be touch and go
How long, how long, can we be touch and go

    The term 'touch and go' "refers to the situation surrounding a narrow escape or avoidance of a difficult issue" (Urban Dictionary). This definition joins forces with the last lines of the first verse "It's kinda rough, cause since I met ya.
    There's things we've never said" to show Ed wondering how long he can carry on with his current relationship under the weight of things unsaid.
    "If you say go, I would stop everything oh" means that he is ready and willing to confront whatever difficult issue they keep avoiding, perhaps their past heartbreaks, judging by the following lines "My heart would play the role now
    And act like it's never been broke".
