You’ve Gotta Listen to Ed Sheeran’s “Friends” Bonus Track

By  | 

All Sheerios can well attest to Ed Sheeran‘s vocal talents. From “The A Team” to “All of the Stars” (for the soundtrack to The Fault in Our Stars!) to “Sing,” Ed’s left the world collectively gushing and tearing up all at the same time. And his “Friends” bonus track proves to be no different.

What you’re about to hear is physical evidence that the 23-year-old British singer can NOT write and/or sing a bad song even if he tried. (Though, why would he?) Although it’s not featured on his upcoming X album, it’s still available for your listening ears:



Get your first listen above, check out the lyrics below, then tell us what you think of Ed Sheeran’s “Friends’ in the comments below!

We’re not, no we’re not friends, nor have we ever been
We just try to keep those secrets in our lives
And if they find out, will it all go wrong?
I never know, no one wants it to



So I could take the back road
But your eyes’ll lead me straight back home
And if you know me like I know you
You should love me, you should know

Friends just sleep in another bed
And friends don’t treat me like you do
Well I know that there’s a limit to everything
But my friends won’t love me like you
No, my friends won’t love me like you

We’re not friends, we could be anything
If we tried to keep those secrets safe
No one will find out if it all went wrong
They’ll never know what we’ve been through



So I could take the back road
But your eyes’ll lead me straight back home
And if you know me like I know you
You should love me, you should know

Friends just sleep in another bed
And friends don’t treat me like you do
Well I know that there’s a limit to everything
But my friends won’t love me like you
No, my friends won’t love me like you

But then again, if we’re not friends
Someone else might love you too
And then again, if we’re not friends
There’d be nothing I could do, and that’s why

Friends should sleep in other beds
And friends should kiss me like you do
And I know that there’s a limit to everything
But my friends won’t love me like you
No, my friends won’t love me like you
Oh, my friends will never love me like you

Proof the World Would Suck Without Ed Sheeran
