  • Let me get my chakras in order
    Please stop plannin' my slaughter
    I need you back in my corner
    Why you burn that jacket I bought ya?
    Those nights I sat in my Corsa
    I was just tryna pattern my Sosa
    Know me from way back then
    You know me from way back when
    Back when I would wish I was taller
    Back when I would wish I was ballin'
    Oh, I think this is my callin'
    But bae ain't sayin', "Goodmornin'"
    I'm just here tryna fix it
    Got a toolbox full and no tools in
    Anything I say gets twisted
    Call off until the mornin'

    Nights like these I could shed ten thousand tears
    I fight for you, and you say I don't care
    Go blind for you, and you say I don't see
    Die for you and you would say I weren't there

    And I don't need to say a word
    Thinkin' about you all the time
    I never meant to break your heart
    I'm thinkin' 'bout you all the time

    These are the nights where I sit on my own
    Whiskey glass, ice cube, let me get in the zone
    Like, let me get my chakras in order
    Darkness in my spirit and my mind got me feelin' alone
    Can you hear me from the outside lookin' in?
    Can you see the way it was and what it could've been?
    Can you see it in my bloodshot eyes?
    For the last time, I'm not that guy
    You've known me since before the hype
    Before the birds, before the lights, the broken trust
    Way before the business tore us up
    We were just tryna scrape change in the corner shop
    And I was tryna make waves, ended up on a mad one
    Rainy gray days, every night was a sad one
    Regret all or nothing, 'bout the things I have done
    Family first, I'm a Catholic grandson, but
    Fool me twice and then never again
    We was so tight, the stitchin' frayed
    I know in dark times we are one in the same
    So you can relate to the struggle and pain, yeah

    Nights like these I could shed ten thousand tears
    I fight for you, and you say I don't care
    Go blind for you, and you say I don't see
    Die for you and you would say I weren't there

    And I don't need to say a word
    Thinkin' about you all the time
    I never meant to break your heart
    I'm thinkin' 'bout you all the time

    How could I give reason to leave?
    My baby the reason I breathe
    Oh, I just weep and I weep
    I haven't been able to sleep for a week
    My memories of us are on replay
    Hype and now I'm mad like a DJ
    Try win this one but it just ain't easy
    Just give me one gyal and I'm easy
    Nuff gyal said they wan' see me
    She can see me pon the TV
    Nuff gyal said they wan' feed me
    She don't wan' feed me, she wan' eat me
    Dem gal are mad like, really
    Cah my gyal are bad like Riri
    Cyaan' see dem gal, yeah I'm Stevie, blind, deeply

    Nights like these I could shed ten thousand tears
    I fight for you, and you say I don't care
    Go blind for you, and you say I don't see
    Die for you and you would say I weren't there

    And I don't need to say a word
    Thinkin' about you all the time
    I never meant to break your heart
    I'm thinkin' 'bout you all the time

    And do you think that's okay?
    Do you think it's okay to play with my emotions?
    You know I've got a good heart
    You know I would do anything for you
    And you just, you play on that so much
    And how do you appreciate it?
    Do you think appreciating it is
    Comparing me to Sonya all the time?
    Every time you get a chance
    To compare me to this great girl that
    A ghost from the past, some girl that you was in love with
    Do you think that's appreciating me? Writer/s: Edward Christopher Sheeran, Justin Clark Samuel, Kadeem Clarke Samuel, Reiss Nicholas, Shaun Mcdowell, TJ Amadi
