"She" as written by Ed Sheeran and Amy Wadge....
I paid all my dues
And she wanted to know
That I'd never leave her
Now I'm ready to go
And strange as it seems
She's endless to me
She's just like paperwork
But harder to read

Patience, my enemy
And loving's my friend
It's harder to leave
With my heart on my sleeve
Than to stay and just pretend
Oh, she knows me so well
Oh, she knows me like I know myself

I made all my plans
And she has made hers
She kept me in mind
But I wasn't sure
I searched every room
For a way to escape
But every time
I tried to leave
She keeps holding on to me
For dear life
And blocking my way

Patience, my enemy
And loving's my friend
It's harder to leave
With my heart on my sleeve
Than to stay and just pretend
Oh, she knows me so well
Oh, she knows me like I know myself

And like the back of her hand
She already understands everything
Won't you stay?
She says
And she already knows how it goes
And where she stands
I'll stay, anyway
Cos she knows me so well
Oh, she knows me like I know myself
Oh, she knows me so well
Oh, she knows me like I know myself

    My Opinioni think these two people had a relationship but after a while they realised that it was never there -
    shes endless to me

    maybe they liked each other at the start but i dont think the guy ever was hers -
    And like the back of her hand
    She already understands everything
    Won’t you stay?
    She says

    maybe he dosnt want to hurt her so he stays and pretends for a while but it dosnt work for either of them -
    I made all my plans
    And she has made hers
    She kept me in mind
    But I wasn’t sure
    I searched every room
    For a way to escape
    But every time
    I tried to leave
    She keeps holding on to me
    For dear life
    And blocking my way

    i think by the end of it the girl realises that its over and it was just a distraction for them both -
    And she already knows how it goes
    And where she stands

    My Opinioni also think the girl has been hurt a lot before in the past which is why at the start she wants him to stay because he makes her feel secure

    My OpinionI think the song is about a guy who has been with a girl for a long time but is feeling like he doesn't want to stay with her any more. He's "paid all his dues" by doing everything he was supposed to but he doesn't feel like he should stay any longer.

    The problem is that he's really comfortable with the girl since "she knows him so well" and he doesn't exactly know how to leave so he stays anyway because it's easier for him to act like it's okay between them than to be honest about wanting to leave as he says in the line:

    "It's harder to leave with my heart on my sleeve than to stay and just pretend"

    The girl either recognizes that he wants to leave and prevents him from doing so or she just needs him to stay so badly that he is unable to gather the nerve to leave her. Either way, she knows that he won't leave her if she asks him to stay as is described in the lines:

    "And like the back of her hand she already understands everything
    'Won't you stay?' she says
    And she already knows how it goes and where she stands
    I'll stay anyway"

    Basically, it's a bittersweet song about wanting to break up, but not quite being sure how to do it.
