"I'm A Mess"

Oh, I'm a mess right now
Inside out
Searching for a sweet surrender

    This song seems like he is more self-reflective and self-critical.“And oh, I’ve only caused you pain,” goes part of a verse, and the chorus includes the halting thought: “Easy baby, maybe I’m a liar.” Usually, Ed is putting women on blast for breaking his heart, but here, he opens up and admits his own mistakes, a feeling that his fans are easily connecting with.He also touches on going through the motions in a relationship, and even though it’s not working,he still hopes to make love last.There’s memories of walking home together(with his ex maybe?) and the final, rousing refrain proves that despite everything, he still believes in love. “And for how long, I love, my lover / I feel love,” he passionately sings over drums, handclaps and piano. It’s the perfect, cathartic end to a song about knowing you’re a mess, and believing in love anyway.
