  • I wanna be drunk when I wake up
    On the right side of the wrong bed
    And never an excuse I made up
    Tell you the truth I hate
    What didn't kill me
    It never made me stronger at all
    Love will scar your makeup, lip sticks to me
    So now I'll maybe lean back there
    I'm sat here, wishin' I was sober
    I know I'll never hold you like I used to

    But our house gets cold when you cut the heating
    Without you to hold, I'll be freezing
    Can't rely on my heart to beat it
    'Cause you take part of it every evening
    Take words out of my mouth just from breathing
    Replace with phrases like, "When you leavin' me?"
    Should I, should I?

    Maybe I'll get drunk again
    I'll be drunk again
    I'll be drunk again
    To feel a little love

    I wanna hold your heart in both hands
    Not watch it fizzle at the bottom of a Coke can
    And I got no plans for the weekend
    So should we speak then? Keep it between friends?
    Though I know you'll never love me like you used to
    There may be other people like us
    Who see the flicker of the clipper when they light up
    Flames just create us
    But burns don't heal like before
    You don't hold me anymore

    On cold days, cold plays out like the band's name
    I know I can't heal things with a handshake
    You know I can't change, as I began sayin'
    You cut me wide open like landscape
    Open bottles of beer but never champagne
    To applaud you with the sound that my hands make
    Should I? Should I?

    Maybe I'll get drunk again
    I'll be drunk again
    I'll be drunk again
    To feel a little love

    All by myself
    I'm here again
    All by myself
    You know I'll never change
    All by myself
    All by myself

    I'm just drunk again
    I'll be drunk again
    I'll be drunk again
    To feel a little love Writer/s: Edward Christopher Sheeran, Jake Nathan Gosling
