‘Well, I found a girl, beautiful and sweet Oh, I never knew you were the someone waiting for me
Cause we were just kids when we fell in love Not knowing what it was I will not give you up this time
We are still kids but we’re so in love Fighting against all odds’
Ed Sheeran hopes that this song would become another one of his defining songs, it has been in the top 10 for the past few weeks in the billboard chart hot top 100. In an interview with BCCs’ Zane Lowe, he said;
“I just wanted to beat “Thinking Out Loud” because I know that song was going to define me…With “Perfect”, it was like, I need to write the best love song of my career.”
Ed Sheeran has revealed a secret battle with substance abuse, which caused him to take a year-long hiatus from the music industry.
The singer-songwriter, 26, admitted his sudden rise to international fame affected him in a negative way to the extent that he ‘started slipping into’ dangerous habits.
Speaking during Saturday night’s forthcoming episode of The Jonathan Ross Show, the Shape Of You hitmaker credited girlfriend and childhood friend, Cherry Seaborn, 24, with pulling him back from the brink.
Discussing his meteoric rise to sudden fame, the British musician explained: ‘I didn’t really have any growing up time into getting famous.
‘I think you need to, when you get into the industry, adjust to it – and I didn’t adjust because I was constantly working on tour.
‘And all the pitfalls that people read about, I just found myself slipping into all of them. Mostly, like, substance abuse.
‘I never touched anything. I started slipping into it, and that’s why I took a year off and buggered off.’
Sheeran said while his problems all started off ‘as a party’, the situation gradually deteriorated, and he realized he needed to address his demons when concerned friends and family members intervened.
He explained to show host Jonathan Ross: ‘I didn’t really notice it was happening. It just started gradually happening, and then some people took me to one side and were like, “Calm yourself down”.
‘It’s all fun to begin with, it all starts off as a party and then you’re doing it on your own and it’s not, so that was a wake-up call and taking a year off.’
Sheeran did not specifically state which substance he was using, but has been open about his heavy drinking in the past.
