"Everything You Are" as written by and Ed Sheeran....
I didn't mean to break your heart
I was just lonely
And everybody falls apart sometimes
I know you've found another one
But won't you just hold me tonight

I wish I never called you up
Nobody told me
And they don't know we don't speak anymore
So take a good look at us
Won't you just hold me tonight

And I will stop trying to fall in love again
And keep it a secret
It never works out, anyway
But I am not, anything like I was
'Cause you were the only one for me
Yeah, yeah

'Cause maybe I don't wanna lose a lover and friend in one night
If that's right
I shouldn't have fucked with your mind
And your life too many times
Or maybe I don't wanna be lonely
Darling, you are my only love
Behind my truth lies everything you are

I never meant to sleep around
I was just lonely
You did the same, again and again and again
Oh, I know
So here's to the both of us
Here's to our story tonight

Oh, I will stop trying to fall in love again
And keep it a secret
It never works out, anyway
But I am not, anything like I was
'Cause you were the only one for me
Hmm, yeah

Maybe I don't wanna lose a lover and friend in one night
If that's right
I shouldn't have fucked with your mind
And your life too many times
Or maybe I don't wanna be lonely
Darling, you are my only love
Behind my truth lies everything you are

When I see my future
It is with you
We'll get there
I want my children to be with you
We'll get there
hmm yeah

'Cause maybe I don't wanna lose a lover and friend in one night
If that's right
I shouldn't have fucked with your mind
And your life too many times
Or maybe I don't wanna be lonely
Darling, you are my only love
Behind my truth lies everything you are
Behind my truth lies everything you are
Behind my truth lies everything you are

    My InterpretationI didn't mean to break your heart
    I was just lonely
    And everybody falls apart sometimes
    I know you've found another one
    But won't you just hold me tonight?

    Apparently, they were far away from each other. So, he felt alone and hooked up with another person. Which is a normal thing, everybody falls apart sometimes. After finding out that he cheated, she started dating someone else. But he still likes her, so he asks for her loving once again.

    I wish I never called you up
    Nobody told me
    And they don't know we don't speak anymore
    So take a good look at us
    Won't you just hold me tonight?

    He might have called her asking another chance without knowing that she was already with another person, because nobody told him. Nobody knew that they weren't speaking after the break up. And he asks her to take a look on their story, who they were before it all happened.

    And I would stop trying to fall in love again
    And keep it a secret
    It never works out anyway
    But I am not anything like a was
    Cause you were the only one for me

    He convinces himself to stop trying to fall in love with another person because it never really works. And he's trying to say that we would never do this again, that was an old version of him. She was the only one for him even though he cheated on her.

    Cause maybe I don't want to lose a lover and friend in one night
    If that's right
    I shouldn't have fucked with your mind
    And your life too many times
    And maybe I don't want to be lonely
    Darling you are my only love
    Behind my truth lies everything you are

    Even though they were boyfriend and girlfriend, she was his friend and he didn't wanna lose all of it. He was such a dick with her but he stills want another chance. He will feel lonely without her, like he did when cheated back then. And after everything he did, after everything he was, she still was a light on his path. "Behind my truth lies everything you are" So if he is sincere today, is because of her. She leads him to the right way.

    I never meant to sleep around
    I was just lonely
    You did the same, again, and again
    I know
    So here's to the both of us
    Here's to our story tonight

    He's sorry but not feeling guilty about hooking up with other people, because he knows that she did the same when they broke up. After all these mistakes, he's still trying to save the relationship that they had once.

    When I see my future
    It is with you
    We'll get there
    I want my children to be with you
    We'll get there

    He plans a future with her and he truly believes that it will happen.

    Thanks for reading it up, xx :)
