"Over Again" as written by Ed Sheeran, Robert Conlon and Alexandra Gowers....
Said I’d never leave her 'cause her hands fit like my T-shirt
Tongue tied over three words, cursed
Running over thoughts that make my feet hurt
Bodies intertwined with her lips

Now she’s feeling so low since she went solo
Hole in the middle of my heart like a polo
And it’s no joke to me
So can we do it all over again?

If you’re pretending from the start like this
With a tight grip, then my kiss can mend your broken heart
I might miss everything you said to me

And I can lend your broken parts
That might fit like this
And I will give you all my heart
So we can start it all over again

Again can we take the same road two days in the same clothes?
And I know just what she’ll say if I can make all this pain go
Can we stop this for a minute?
You know, I can tell that your heart isn’t in it or with it

Tell me with your mind, body and spirit
I can make your tears fall down like the showers that are British
Whether we’re together or apart
We can both remove the masks and admit we regret it from the start

If you’re pretending from the start like this
With a tight grip, then my kiss can mend your broken heart
I might miss everything you said to me

And I can lend your broken parts
That might fit like this
And I will give you all my heart
So we can start it all over again

You’ll never know how to make it on your own
And you’ll never show weakness for letting go
I guess you’re still hurt if they say so
But do you really want to be alone?

If you’re pretending from the start like this
With a tight grip, then my kiss can mend your broken heart
I might miss everything you said to me

And I can lend your broken parts
That might fit like this
And I will give you all my heart
So we can start it all over again

If you’re pretending from the start like this
With a tight grip, then my kiss can mend your broken heart
I might miss everything you said to me

And I can lend your broken parts
That might fit like this
And I will give you all my heart
So we can start it all over again

    Song MeaningI believe that Over Again is about a couple who have a relationship that purely physical more than romantic because it says "BODY'S INTERTWINED WITH HER LIPS".
    But they really do like each other, apparently the guy wasn't able to tell the girl that he loved her "TONGUE-TIED OVER THREE WORDS. CURSED"
    So they decide to break it off. But later he realizes the girl is really sad about the break up and knowing that he really likes her, he wants to give it another try "AND IT'S NO JOKE TO ME. SO CAN WE DO IT ALL OVER AGAIN?"
    He really does want to try. But when they start it off again it seems that the relationship is the same as it was before "AGAIN WE TAKE THE SAME ROAD..."
    And he knows the girl isn't putting her heart into it but he isn't either, because both of them have been hurt before and they're afraid to do it again. In the chorus the boy says how he knows she isn't giving him her heart, but he wants her to he wants to have a real relationship with this girl, "THEN MY KISS CAN MEND YOUR BROKEN HEART"
    And then he admits that he's been hurt before too "AND I CAN LEND YOU BROKEN PARTS" and says he will give her his heart and she's willing to try and do the same if she's willing to "START IT ALL OVER AGAIN".

    General CommentI think this is about a relationship that is completely physical, but he ends up falling for her gradually. Typical friends with benefits type of cliche. As he says he is "tongue tied over three words", wanting to tell her how he feels but afraid to ruin what he has. However he knows her better than anyone else and knows that if they could start over as a proper relationship, he could help her and "mend her broken heart"
