Shirtsleeves
by Ed Sheeran



I can taste salt water
And if I blink again
We’ll be sinking in
So I’ll learn to swim in the oceans you made
I’ll hold ya
And you’ll think of him
And pretty soon you will be floating away
And I’ll hold on to the words you spoke of
Anchored down in my throat love
And I’m captain of the skinning boat now
With just one armband to carry me home

When salted tears won’t dry
I’ll wipe my shirt sleeve under your eye
These hearts will be flooded tonight
I’ll wipe my shirtsleeve under your eyes
Your eyes

I still taste old water
On my lips from your kiss of bitterness
And I’ll drown within the oceans you made
And I hate to love you
These cuffs are covered in your make up
I’ll never trust you again
You can just be a friend
And I’ll hold onto the words you spoke of
Anchored down in my throat love
And I’m captain of the sinking boat now
With just one armband to carry me home

When salted tears won’t dry
I’ll wipe my shirtsleeve under your eyes
These hearts will be flooded tonight
I’ll wipe my shirtsleeve under your eyes
Your eyes
Your lips
Your mouth
Your thighs
Your back
You drive me wild
Tonight the fact is I’m
I’m on the way home
I’m on the way home
I lied I tried to cry but I’m
I’m drowning in the oceans you made

When salted tears won’t dry
I’ll wipe my shirtsleeve under your eye
These hearts will be flooded tonight
I’ll wipe my shirtsleeve under your eyes
Your eyes
