Verse 1:
The city never sleeps,
I hear the people walk by when it's late,
Sirens beat through my windowsill,
I can't close my eyes,
Don't control what I'm into.
This town is alive,

    ed sheeran moves to london to porsue his dream but he isn't used to the noises of the city and the trafic. he couldn't sleep a night because of the noise and i understood that he performed on thhe street "The pavement is my friend" "The shop across the road
    Fills my needs and gives me company" the mon in the shop accross from him helped him. he wasn't accepted at, he was alone "London calls me a stranger, a traveller" he struggled so much that he thought that he won't be able to make it past tomorrow. but london is his home now so he will bear the struggles and continue his life.

    moves to london, he isn't used to it and it's too busy for him because he is used to the country side and he has to get used to it because it is his home now

    This is the older version, off his older album.
    He is new in London and he is trying hard to get used to it. He is used to the country with silent nights, and not so many people. Ed is saying how London is now his home and he needs to get used to it.
