"I'm A Mess"

Oh, I'm a mess right now
Inside out
Searching for a sweet surrender
But this is not the end

I can't work it out
How going through the motions
Going through us

And, oh, I've known it for the longest time
And all of my...

    This song is quite clearly about a lady gaslighting Ed. It's not about him admitting fault it's about her picking fault and him believing it a while before realising what she's doing then being heartbroken because he loves her. Drop the mic thank you friends.

    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.

    The song is about Ed's love life and how is unsure what to do to fix it.
