Songfacts®:

  • Ed Sheeran has known his girlfriend Cherry Seaborn since they both attended Thomas Mills High School in Framlington, Suffolk. Their friendship turned into a relationship in 2015. During this sweet acoustic song, Sheeran sings of his love for his "sweetest" girl.

    She is the sweetest thing that I know
    Should see the way she holds me when the lights go low
    Shakes my soul like a pothole every time
    Took my heart upon a one way trip
    Guess she went wandering off with it


    Speaking to Today's Richard Wilkins, Sheeran talked how being 'loved up' with Cherry was a calming force in his hectic life. "Everything's just a lot easier," the singer said. "That side of my life is meant to be the part that chills you out, and it definitely is."
