This somber ballad was written by Ed Sheeran with his friend Amy Wadge, who is best known for co-penning "Thinking Out Loud
." The pair have collaborated on a number of songs together, and Sheeran titled his 2010 EP Songs I Wrote with Amy
after they wrote nine songs in two days.
Sheeran and Wadge met up again in February 2011, around the time he'd been signed to Atlantic, and this song is one of the fruits from that session.
