Pretty smile lovely face and a warm breeze now I need you lady
You're my no tell lover
Every night in a different place I'll meet you tender lady
You're my no tell lover

Everyone keeps tellin' me that this affair's not meant to be
Even though I need you night and day
Walk away if you see me coming, even if it's you I'm lovin'

Every minute is an hour every day's a lonely lifetime
You're my no tell lover
The little time that we spend together just can't last forever
You're my no tell lover

Everyone keeps tellin' me that this affair's not meant to be
Even though I need you night and day
Walk away if you see me coming even though it's you I'm lovin'
I want her
I can't leave her
I won't live without her
There's nothing left to say
I want her
I can't leave her

Pretty smile, lovely face and a warm breeze now I need you lady
You're my no tell lover
Every night in a different place I'll need you tender lady
You're my no tell lover

Everyone keeps tellin' me this affair's not meant to be
Even though I need you night and day
Walk away if you see me coming even though it's you I'm lovin'

I want her
I can't leave her
I won't live without her
She's my no tell lover

    Pretty obvious...guy's having an affair. He can't be with her, because he's married. He can't be without her...he digs her way too much. Chorus pretty much sums it up.

    My Interpretation

    The brass/horns in this tune are so damn cool, and they are an expression of his feelings/emotions...

    For example at 2:14 they show/express his joy/excitement at seeing her and being with her, and then towards the end, at 3:20 they show/express his sadness/regret that they can't really be together...

Magical
Ed Sheeran
How would you describe the feeling of being in love? For Ed Sheeran, the word is “Magical.” in HIS three-minute album opener, he makes an attempt to capture the beauty and delicacy of true love with words. He describes the magic of it all over a bright Pop song produced by Aaron Dessner.

Plastic Bag
Ed Sheeran
“Plastic Bag” is a song about searching for an escape from personal problems and hoping to find it in the lively atmosphere of a Saturday night party. Ed Sheeran tells the story of his friend and the myriad of troubles he is going through. Unable to find any solutions, this friend seeks a last resort in a party and the vanity that comes with it. “I overthink and have trouble sleepin’ / All purpose gone and don’t have a reason / And there’s no doctor to stop this bleedin’ / So I left home and jumped in the deep end,” Ed Sheeran sings in verse one. He continues by adding that this person is feeling the weight of having disappointed his father and doesn’t have any friends to rely on in this difficult moment. In the second verse, Ed sings about the role of grief in his friend’s plight and his dwindling faith in prayer. “Saturday night is givin’ me a reason to rely on the strobe lights / The lifeline of a promise in a shot glass, and I’ll take that / If you’re givin’ out love from a plastic bag,” Ed sings on the chorus, as his friend turns to new vices in hopes of feeling better.
