Ed Sheeran - Shirtsleeves

Verse 1:
I can taste salt water
And if I blink again you'll be sinking in
So I'll learn to swim
in the oceans you made
I'll hold you
And you'll think of him
And pretty soon you'll be floating away

Pre-chorus:
And I'll hold on to the words you spoke of
Anchored down in your throat love
And I'm captain of this sinking boat now
With just one armband to carry me home

Chorus:
When salted tears won't dry
I'll wipe my shirtsleeve under your eyes
These hearts will be flooded tonight
I'll wipe my shirtsleeve under your eyes
Your eyes x5

Verse 2:
I still taste salt water
On my lips from your kiss of bitterness
And I'll drown within the oceans you made
And I hate to love you
These cuffs are covered in your make-up
I'll never trust you again
You can just be a friend


Pre-chorus:
And I'll hold on to the words you spoke of
Anchored down in your throat love
And I'm captain of this sinking boat now
With just one armband to carry me home

Chorus:
When salted tears won't dry
I'll wipe my shirtsleeve under your eyes
These hearts will be flooded tonight
I'll wipe my shirtsleeve under your eyes

Bridge:
Your eyes, your lips, your mouth,
your thighs, your back, we tried, meanwhile tonight the fact is I'm
I'm on the way home
I'm on my way home
I lied I tried to cry but I'm
I'm drowning in the oceans you made

Chorus:
When salted tears won't dry
I'll wipe my shirtsleeve under your eyes
These hearts will be flooded tonight
I'll wipe my shirtsleeve under your eyes
Your eyes x5
