I'm a Mess

Album: x (2014)
Charted: 49
  • Sheeran explained the song's meaning to The Sun: "That's a self-derogatory song about a time last year when everything came to a head. There was so much going on and so many loose ends that needed to be tied."

    "I was stressed," Sheeran continued. " But like Joni Mitchell said, 'The closer you can get to your heart, the closer you can get to other people's.'"

    "People relate to the things they don't want to talk about, you know insecurities and f---ing up," he added. That is why Adele was so huge as her album is very raw and honest."
  • Sheeran told The Daily Telegraph the song was "written in the shower."
