"Cold Coffee" as written by Ed Sheeran and Amy Wadge....
She's like cold coffee in the morning
I'm drunk off last nights whisky and coke
She'll make me shiver without warning
And make me laugh as if I'm in on the joke

And you can stay with me forever
Or you could stay with me for now

Tell me if I'm wrong
Tell me if I'm right
Tell me if you need a loving hand
To help you fall asleep tonight
Tell me if I know
Tell me if I do
Tell me how to fall in love the way you want me to

I'll wake with coffee in the morning
But she prefers two lumps of sugar and tea
Outside the day is up and calling
But I don't have to be so, please go back to sleep

Stay with me forever
Or you could stay with me for now

Tell me if I'm wrong
Tell me if I'm right
Tell me if you need a loving hand
To help you fall asleep tonight
Tell me if I know
Tell me if I do
Tell me how to fall in love the way you want me to

'Cause I love the way you wake me up
For goodness sake will my love not be enough?

Tell me if I'm wrong
Tell me if I'm right
Tell me if you need a loving hand
To help you fall asleep tonight
Tell me if I know
Tell me if I do
Tell me how to fall in love the way you want me to

Tell me if I'm wrong
Tell me if I'm right
Tell me if you need a loving hand
To help you fall asleep tonight

    My InterpretationLove this song so much. It's recently become one of my favourites.

    I think it's about a relationship that the singer wishes would come to fruition. She might not be as interested as he is, but he really wishes she were so they could be together for longer. Either way, he's happy to have her stay with him for as long as she will.
    He's also willing to be used, in a sense, assuming that she only calls him when she needs him. I love when he sings "but for goodness sake, will my love not be enough?" as if he loves her as much as she can while she's not into it or can't love him back the same way. It's very bittersweet.

    Song MeaningI think this song is about falling out of love of a girl to ed.As ed compares the girl's cold treatment to a cold coffee in the morning while he is still high of being in love with her as if he is "drunk of last night's whisky and coke". in this line I can also say that their both in love before, but now only ed is still high with that feeling while the girl's love is slowly fading. Nevertheless, he still wants the girl to stay with him. the lines " tell me if I'm wrong, tell me if I'm right, tell me if you need a loving hand to help you fall sleep tonight," is showing how desperate ed to please the girl. it's like he's willing to do everything just to bring back the love of the girl for him. the lines "tell me if I know, tell me if I do tell me how to fall in love the way you want me to". this line means that he wants to know what's wrong him so he could do something about it. " you can stay with me forever or you could stay with me for now" this shows that their relationship will depend if to the girl's decision to stay but he is still happy that he still have her for now.

    it's just my interpretation so any other interpretation is welcome;)

    My InterpretationI believe that in one way, he is an alcoholic or at least drinks a lot, because his girlfriend is very cold to him and is never completely satisfied with his part in the relationship. He just wants to please her, he doesn't want to leave her, so he turns to alcohol.

    Or it could be the other way around, that she is so cold to him because he drinks too much, and her harshness when he comes home is something that sobers him up.
