Ed Sheeran: The Meaning Behind His Song Lyrics
10. Ed Sheeran - 'You Need Me, I Don't Need You'
Ed's most upbeat track on '+' is 'You Need Me, I Don't Need You' which takes a shot at other artists who fail to write their own music or want to find success without putting in the hard work first. Ed assures the listener he "don't need another wordsmith to make my tune sell" and talks about playing over a thousand gigs but still having to sleep on a friend's couch at the end of a night. Best lyric: "I'm not you, now that would be disastrous, let me sing and do my thing and move to greener pastures."
