Don't Let Me Be Yours

  • Here, Zara Larsson sings about a boy who she acknowledges is not good for her, but she wants him anyway.

    I know, I know that you're bad for my health
    But I don't care, I want you anyway
    Aye, yeah

    Larsson specifies why she can't stop seeing the guy later on the song when she sings how, "it's heaven in this bed."
  • Larsson co-wrote the song with Ed Sheeran and his frequent collaborator, Snow Patrol's Johnny McDaid. The "Shape Of You" singer also contributes backing vocals during the chorus.
  • During a Capital FM interview, Sheeran described working with the Swedish songbird and how he was impressed by her talent. He explained that she "just nailed it the first time," while they were recording in the studio together.
