Ed Sheeran – You Need Me, I Don’t Need You

[00:00.940]
[00:11.570]Now I’m in town, break it down, thinking of making a new sound
[00:13.570]Playing a different show every night in front of a new crowd
[00:16.130]That’s you now, ciao, seems that life is great now
[00:18.380]See me lose focus, as I sing to you loud
[00:20.940]And I can’t, no, I won’t hush
[00:23.380]I’ll say the words that make you blush
[00:25.570]I’m gonna sing this now
[00:28.820]
[00:30.380]See, I’m true, my songs are where my heart is
[00:32.690]I’m like glue, I stick to other artists
[00:34.750]I’m not you, now that would be disastrous
[00:36.810]Let me sing and do my thing and move to greener pastures
[00:38.880]See, I’m real, I do it all, it’s all me
[00:41.880]I’m not fake, don’t ever call me lazy
[00:44.060]I won’t stay put, give me the chance to be free
[00:46.380]Suffolk sadly seems to sort of suffocate me
[00:48.440]
[00:49.060]’Cause you need me, man, I don’t need you
[00:51.560]You need me, man, I don’t need you
[00:53.750]You need me, man, I don’t need you at all
[00:56.250]You need me, man, I don’t need you
[00:58.310]
[00:58.630]You need me, man, I don’t need you
[01:00.620]You need me, man, I don’t need you
[01:02.940]You need me, man, I don’t need you at all
[01:05.560]You need me
[01:07.000]I sing and write my own tune and I write my own verse
[01:09.690]Hell, don’t need another word-smith to make my tune sell?
[01:11.810]Call yourself a singer-writer – you’re just bluffing
[01:13.940]Your name’s on the credits and you didn’t write nothing
[01:16.310]I sing fast, I know that all my ****’s cool
[01:19.060]I will blast and I didn’t go to Brit School
[01:21.250]I came fast with the way I act, right
[01:23.620]I can’t last if I’m smoking on a crack pipe
[01:26.060]And I won’t be a product of my genre
[01:28.060]My mind will always be stronger than my songs are
[01:29.940]Never believe the ******** that fake guys feed to ya
[01:32.690]Always read the stories that you hear on Wikipedia
[01:35.060]And musically I’m demonstrating
[01:37.440]When I perform live, feels like I am meditating
[01:39.250]Times at the Enterprise when some fella filmed me
[01:41.940]’A young singer-writer like Gabriella Cilmi’
[01:44.620]’Cause you need me, man, I don’t need you
[01:46.880]You need me, man, I don’t need you
[01:49.310]You need me, man, I don’t need you, at all
[01:52.000]You need me, man, I don’t need you
[01:54.310]You need me, man, I don’t need you
[01:56.380]You need me, man, I don’t need you
[01:58.690]You need me, man, I don’t need you, at all
[02:01.060]You need me
[02:02.190]Cause with the lyrics I’ll be aiming it right
[02:03.750]I won’t stop till my name’s in lights
[02:05.300]At stadium heights with Damien Rice
[02:06.990]On red carpets, now I’m on Arabian Nights
[02:09.340]Because I’m young and all my brothers gonna give me advice
[02:11.470]Long nighter, short height and I’m going hyper
[02:14.220]Never be anything but a singer-songwriter
[02:16.530]The game’s over but now I’m on a new level
[02:19.090]Watch how I step on the track without a loop pedal
[02:21.470]People think that I’m bound to blow up
[02:23.530]I’ve done around about a thousand shows
[02:25.590]But I haven’t got a house plus I live on the couch
[02:28.030]So you believe the lyrics when I’m singing them out
[02:30.410]
[02:30.780]From day one, I’ve been prepared
[02:32.780]With VO5 wax for my ginger hair
[02:34.970]So now I’m back to the sofa, giving a dose of what the future holds
[02:38.090]Cause it’s another day
[02:39.220]Plus I’ll keep my last name forever keep the genre pretty basic
[02:41.900]Gonna be breaking into other people’s tunes when I chase it
[02:44.660]And replace it with the elephant in the room with a facelift
[02:46.970]Into another rappers shoes using new laces
[02:48.970]Selling CD’s from my rucksack aiming for the papers
[02:51.780]Selling CD’s from my rucksack aiming for the majors
[02:54.030]Nationwide tour with Just Jack, still had to get the bus back
[02:56.280]Clean-cut kid without a razor for the mustache
[02:58.470]I hit back when the pen hurts me
[03:00.400]I’m still a choir boy in a Fenchurch tee
[03:02.910]I’m still the same as a year ago
[03:04.530]But more people hear me though
[03:05.780]According to the MySpace and YouTube videos
[03:07.720]I’m always doing shows if I’m not I’m in the studio
[03:09.970]Truly broke, never growing up call me Ruffio
[03:12.150]Melody music maker
[03:13.220]Reading all the papers
[03:14.660]They say I’m up and coming like I’m f*cking in an elevator
[03:17.400]Cause you need me, man, I don’t need you
[03:19.780]You need me, man, I don’t need you
[03:22.030]You need me, man, I don’t need you, at all
[03:24.530]You need me, man, I don’t need you
[03:26.780]You need me, man, I don’t need you
[03:28.900]You need me, man, I don’t need you
[03:31.220]You need me, man, I don’t need you, at all
[03:33.780]You need me, man, I don’t need you
