Sheeran penned this about Scottish singer-songwriter Nina Nesbitt
, who toured with him and also had a small cameo role in his "Drunk
" video. The pair were also romantically involved for around a year. Sheeran explained during a Spotify track by track: "When you're a musician and you date someone, there's always an in-between. Like, you put your family and your friends first, always, and then your career second. But when you date someone, they kind of fall in between the family and friends and career, and you don't really know whether they're more important than the career or whether they're more important than family - so this is a song about that."
"You just need to find someone that's OK with it, and I think by the time you have kids, that's when your family comes first, and that's where the woman comes, because she's your family now," he added. "I think kids change everything, but up until then it's different. My family understand I had to go away for 12 months last year, but until you find a partner who'd happy with that, you shouldn't even bother. Well, you shouldn't bother committing."
