Drunk (3:19)

Cover of +

From + and 4 other releases

Here is some background information on the song from the Drunk Songfacts: Sheeran’s fourth single from his debut album + finds him singing about someone whose relationship ended because of his own inability to change. The protagonist feels sorry for himself and the only way he can handle the pain is by drowning his sorrows in drink.
Sheeran sings of getting drunk on several other + tracks. He recalls getting inebriated after breaking up with his girlfriend when she went to university on “U.N.I… ” “I’m still drunk by the end of the night. I don’t drink like everybody else. End up forgetting things about myself.”) “Give Me Love” tells a similar story where the protagonist tells his former beau, “Maybe tonight I’ll call you/ After my blood turns to alcohol/ No, I just wanna hold ya.”
The official music video is the first one filmed by Sheeran that he stars in as well. It also features his current girlfriend, Scottish-Swedish singer-songwriter Nina Nesbitt, plus a partying cat.

[Verse 1]
I wanna be drunk when I wake up
On the right side of the wrong bed
And never an excuse that I made up
