Don't Lyrics
Jump to:
Ah lahmlahlah
Ah lahmlahlah

[Verse 1:]
I met this girl late last year
She said don't you worry if I disappear
I told her I'm not really looking for another mistake
I called an old friend thinking that the trouble would wait
But then I jump right in
A week later returned
I reckon she was only looking for a lover to burn
But I gave her my time for two or three nights
Then I put it on pause 'til the moment was right
I went away for months until our paths crossed again
She told me I was never looking for a friend
Maybe you could swing by my room around 10
Baby bring a lemon and a bottle of gin
We'll be in between the sheets 'til the late AM
Baby if you wanted me then you should've just said
She's singing
Ah lahmlahlah

[Chorus:]
Don't f*ck with my love
That heart is so cold
All over my home
I don't wanna know that babe
Ah lahmlahlah
Don't f*ck with my love
I told her she knows
Take aim and reload
I don't wanna know that babe
Ah lahmlahlah

[Verse 2:]
For a couple weeks I
Only want to see her
We drink away the days with a take-away pizza
Before a text message was the only way to reach her
Now she's staying at my place and loves the way I treat her
Singing out Aretha
All over the track like a feature
And never wants to sleep, I guess that I don't want to either
But me and her we make money the same way
Four cities, two planes the same day
Those shows have never been what it's about
But maybe we'll go together and just figure it out
I'd rather put on a film with you and sit on the couch
But we should get on a plane
Or we'll be missing it now
Wish I'd have written it down
The way that things played out
When she was kissing him
How? I was confused about
She should figure it out while I'm sat here singing
Ah lahmlahlah

[Chorus:]
Don't f*ck with my love
That heart is so cold
All over my home
I don't wanna know that babe
Ah lahmlahlah
Don't f*ck with my love
I told her she knows
Take aim and reload
I don't wanna know that babe
Ah lahmlahlah

[Verse 3:]
[Knock knock knock] on my hotel door
I don't even know if she knows what for
She was crying on my shoulder
I already told ya
Trust and respect is what we do this for
I never intended to be next
But you didn't need to take him to bed that's all
And I never saw him as a threat
Until you disappeared with him to have sex of course
It's not like we were both on tour
We were staying on the same f*cking hotel floor
And I wasn't looking for a promise or commitment
But it was never just fun and I thought you were different
This is not the way you realize what you wanted
It's a bit too much, too late if I'm honest
All this time God knows I'm singing
Ah lahmlahlah

[Chorus 2x:]
Don't f*ck with my love
That heart is so cold
All over my home
I don't wanna know that babe
Ah lahmlahlah
Don't f*ck with my love
I told her she knows
Take aim and reload
I don't wanna know that babe
Ah lahmlahlah

Don't Info:

• Sheeran told Billboard magazine: "The story in 'Don't' is 100 percent true. I could have gotten nastier - there was more s--t that I didn't put in. I was seeing someone for a bit of time, and then they ended up physically involved with one of my friends in the same hotel that we were staying in, while I was downstairs. And I feel like: Treat people how you want to be treated."

• The song has been linked to several of Sheeran's fellow singers, including Ellie Goulding and Taylor Swift. He said: "It's 100 percent not about Taylor. Taylor's one of these people that if you piss her off and she writes a song about you, it's not good news for you. I've never dated Taylor. I've dated a few singers, though."

Sheeran did play the song for Swift after writing it. He said: "She was just like, 'Whatever happens, ever, between us as friends, I never want to piss you off that much.'"

• "I wasn't going to put it on the record and then people kept telling me it was an alright song, 'cause it is a good song, so it ended up on the record...But yeah, that one's a bit personal."
