I'm a Mess is a song by Ed Sheeran and appears as the second track on his second studio album, X.

Critical ReceptionEdit

In a Billboard track-by-track review, writer Jason Lipshutz stated: "Sheeran is still stumbling, but on "I'm A Mess," he demonstrates a classic folk voice and sensibility. The songwriter is not trying to screw up a semblance of happiness, and with a deceptively simple arrangement, he keeps matters as uncluttered as possible." [1]

LyricsEdit

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 hope all of my words

Are all over written on the signs
When your on my road walking me home
Home, home, home, ho-ome

See the flames inside my eyes
It burns so bright I want to feel your love.l
Easy baby maybe I'm alive
Before tonight I want to fall in love
Put your faith in my stomach

I messed up this time
Late last night
Drinking to suppress devotion
With fingers intertwined

I can't shake this feeling
Now

We're going through the motions
Hoping you'd stop

And oh I've only caused you pain, you know
But all of my words were always below
Although all the love you spoke
When your on my road walking me home
Home, home, home, ho-ome

See the flames inside my eyes
It burns so bright I want to feel your love
Easy baby maybe I'm alive
Before tonight I want to fall in love
Put your faith in my stomach

For how long I love my lover
For how long I love my lover
For how long I love my lover
For how long I love my lover
For how long I love my lover
For how long I love my lover
For how long I love my lover
For how long I love my lover
(I feel it all over now)
For how long I love my lover
(I feel it all over yeah)
For how long I love my lover
For how long I love my lover
