  • Waking up, half past five
    Blood on pillow and one bruised eye
    Drunk too much, you know what I'm like
    But you should've seen the other guy

    This ain't the right time for you to fall in love with me
    Baby I'm just being honest
    And I know my lies could not make you believe
    We're running in circles that's why

    In my dark times I'll be going back to the street
    Promising everything I do not mean
    In my dark times, baby this is all I could be
    Don't think my mother could love me for me
    In my dark times, in my dark times

    Light one up, let me bum a smoke
    Still calming down, dripping throat
    I got another man's blood on my clothes
    But an endless fog's the life I chose

    This ain't the right time for you to fall in love with me
    Baby I'm just being honest
    And I know my lies could not make you believe
    Running in circles that's why

    In my dark times I'll be going back to the street
    Promising everything I do not mean
    In my dark times, baby this is all I could be
    Only my mother could love me for me
    In my dark times, in my dark times

    In my dark times I've still got some problems I know
    Driving too fast but just moving to slow
    And I've got something I've been trying to let go
    Pulling me back every time

    In my dark times taking it back to the street
    Making those promises that I could not keep
    In my dark times, baby this is all I could be
    Only my mother could love me for me
    In my dark times taking it down to the street
    Making those promises that I would not keep
    In my dark times this is all I could be
    Only my mother could of loved me for me
    In my dark times, in my dark times
    In my dark timesWriter/s: Jason Quenneville, Edward Christopher Sheeran, Abel Tesfaye
