Nina is a song by Ed Sheeran and appears as the fifth track from his second studio album, X.

Critical ReceptionEdit

In a Billboard track-by-track review, writer Jason Lipshutz stated: "Following the quick name-check of Stevie Wonder and Bon Iver's "Re: Stacks," Sheeran once again tries to hide away from the world with a girl, but the (music) world keeps pulling him away from love. With descending piano notes and a rollicking pop hook, this one should be earmarked as a future single." [1]

LyricsEdit

I met you when I was a teen
But then you were one as well
And I could play the guitar
Just like ringing the bells
Sometimes I wonder

And any other summer could you have been my part time lover
To me listening to Stevie Wonder
Under the covers where we used to lay
And Re: Stacks is what the speakers play
I'll be on tour almost every day
When I was home up in my flat is where we used to stay
Just watching the DVD, smoking illegal weed
Getting high as two kites we needed to breathe

We used each other's edge just for the people to see
And stay up all night like when we needed to sleep
We go anywhere, our minds would take us
And I'll say you are beautiful without your make-up
And you don't even need to worry about your weight cause
We can all be loved the way that God made us
And time's the only reason that we could break up
Cause you would always tell me I'm away too much
Distance is relative to the time that it takes to get on a plane
Or make a mistake, say it again

Oh Nina
You should go Nina
'Cause I ain't never coming home
Nina oh, won't you leave me now
And I've been living on the road Nina
And then again you should know Nina
Cause that's you and me
Nina oh, won't you leave me now
Now

And every weekend in the winter
You'd be wearing my hoodie
With drawstrings pulled tight
To keep your face from the cold
Taking day trips to the local
Where we'd eat on our own
Cause every day when I was a away
We'd only speak on the phone
Watching Blue Planet
Creating new habits
And it's as if we were two rabbits
And then you'd vanish

Back to the burrow with all of the keltic I disappear
You call me selfish, I understand
But I can't help it
I put my job before everything
Except my family and friends
But you'll be in between forever
So I guess we'll have to take a step back
Overlook the situation

Cause mixing business and feelings will only lead to complications
And I'm not saying we should be taking a break
Just re-evaluating quick before we make a mistake and it's too late
So we can either deal with the pain
Or wait to get on a plane
But in the day we'll have to say it again

Oh Nina
You should go Nina
'Cause I ain't never coming home
Nina oh, won't you leave me now
And I've been living on the road Nina
And then again you should know Nina
Cause that's you and me
Nina oh, won't you leave me now
Now

Love will come and love will go
But you can make it on your own
Sing that song, go, oh won't you leave me now
People grow, and fall apart
But you can mend your broken heart
Take it back, oh won't you leave me now

Oh Nina
You should go Nina
'Cause I ain't never coming home
Nina oh, won't you leave me now
And I've been living on the road Nina
And then again you should know Nina
Cause that's you and me
Nina oh, won't you leave me now
Now

TriviaEdit

"Nina" samples elements of "Welcome to My World" by Wretch 32.
