U.N.I. Lyrics

I found your hairband on my bedroom floor
The only evidence that you'd been here before
And I don't get waves of missing you anymore
They're more like tsunami tides in my eyes
Never getting dry, so I get high
Smoke away the days, never sleep...

    My interpretation:
    I found your hairband on my bedroom floor,
    The only evidence that you've been here before
    And I don't get waves of missing you anymore,
    They're more like tsunami tides in my eyes
    (A hairband is something a girl leaves around all the time; it could fall out their hair and then they just find another one, leaving that one lying there. He has nothing else from her except for the hairband and the strong loss of her)
    Never getting dry, so I get high, smoke away the days never sleep with the light on
    Weeks pass in the blink of an eye,
    And I'm still drunk at the end of the night
    I don't drink like everybody else,
    I do it to forget things about myself,
    Stumble and fall with the head spin I got
    My mind's with you but my heart's just not
    (He is so stuck in his "tsunami" that he has to drink and smoke it away. The "light" is pretty much his happiness; he has none. His heart is ready to move on but his mind is still on how things went down.)
    So am I close to you anymore, if it's over
    And there's no chance that we'll work it out
    That's why you and I ended over U N I
    And I said that's fine, but you're the only one that knows I lied
    You and I ended over U N I
    And I said that's fine, but you're the only one that knows I lied
    ("Uni" is British for "university". It just happens that it matches perfectly with the American "you n' I".
    Everybody said we'd be together forever but I know that,
    I never wanna settle down, come around, break up the love like Lego now,
    Never wanna turn into another like you,
    Sleep with my thoughts, dance with my views,
    Everything's great but not everything's sure
    (He doesn't want to have something to serious but he doesn't want to ruin it, tear it apart like legos.)
    But you live in your halls and I live in a tour bus,
    Now I'm in a position to be another stalker like every thing I say seems to always sound awkward,
    Like our last kiss it was perfect, we were nervous,
    On the surface,
    And I'm always saying everyday that it was worth it,
    Pain is only relevant if it still hurts,
    I forget like an elephant, or we can use a sedative and go back to the day we fell in love just on our first kiss
    (She is going to college and he is at his musical peak; he couldn't give it all away for her. Even though he says that he'll be an "elephant" and forget, he is just being sarcastic and meaning that he'll always remember but maybe drugs & alcohol could take it away.)

    "It ended over UNI." 'UNI' stands for 'University' So it ended because his EX girlfriend wanted to go to UNI. He said it was fine, but obviously it wasn't.
    He sung about her breaking up with him because she was going to UNI, but he wasn't. I think that's right...?

    You idiots.

    UNI- You and I.

    Why do you think so complicatedly over a song? I'm pretty sure that Ed Sheeran doesn't create songs for mathematic geniuses to decode. ._.

    This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway

    In this song, Ed sings about his ex long-term girlfriend. UNI means university. Ed's ex wanted to go to 'UNI' but he wasn't planning to. So, they 'ended over UNI'. That explains the name of the song. Other parts of the song talk about how he misses her, and that he gets drunk to forget about her because he can't figure out a way to work out their relationship. Ed just wants to be close to her now but it's awkward after they broke up after a long and great relationship.

    The song was written when he found out that his then, long-term girlfriend was set to go to UNI but he wasn't planning on going. She would have to move away and the relationship would have to end.

    eds describing his heart break over his ex girlfriend of three years, they dated over 'uni' hence the title and lyric meanings. they finished when uni did because they both wanted differnt things; eds being fame and hers being a usual career. as the song describes the relationship finished over uni but he wished they hadnt. in late reports ed mentioned that, she is the girl he'd want to settle down with and marry, but hes currently focusing on his career.
