[Intro]
(One, two, three, four)
Ooh, ooh

[Verse 1]
Every time you come around, you know I can’t say no
Every time the sun goes down, I let you take control
I can feel the paradise before my world implodes
And tonight had something wonderful

[Chorus]
My bad habits lead to late nights endin’ alone
Conversations with a stranger I barely know
Swearin’ this will be the last, but it probably won’t
I got nothin’ left to lose, or use, or do
My bad habits lead to wide eyes starin’ at space
And I know I’ll lose control of the things that I say
Yeah, I was lookin’ for a way out, now I can’t escape
Nothin’ happens after two, it’s truе, it’s true
My bad habits lead to you

[Post-Chorus]
Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh
My bad habits lead to you
Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh
My bad habits lеad to you

[Verse 2]
Every pure intention ends when the good times start
Fallin’ over everything to reach the first-time spark
It started under neon lights and then it all got dark
I only know how to go too far

[Chorus]
My bad habits lead to late nights endin’ alone
Conversations with a stranger I barely know
Swearin’ this will be the last, but it probably won’t
I got nothin’ left to lose, or use, or do
My bad habits lead to wide eyes starin’ at space
And I know I’ll lose control of the things that I say
Yeah, I was lookin’ for a way out, now I can’t escape
Nothin’ happens after two, it’s true, it’s true
My bad habits lead to you

[Post-Chorus]
Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh
My bad habits lead to you
Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh

[Bridge]
We took the long way ’round
And burned ’til the fun ran out, now

[Chorus]
My bad habits lead to late nights endin’ alone
Conversations with a stranger I barely know
Swearin’ this will be the last, but it probably won’t
I got nothin’ left to lose, or use, or do
My bad habits lead to wide eyes starin’ at space
And I know I’ll lose control of the things that I say
Yeah, I was lookin’ for a way out, now I can’t escape
Nothin’ happens after two, it’s true, it’s true
My bad habits lead to you

[Post-Chorus]
Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh
My bad habits lead to you
Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh
My bad habits lead to youOn “Bad Habits,” Ed Sheeran reflects on past habits of constant drinking and late night partying and what these actions tend to lead to. No matter how pure Ed’s intentions are at the start, the night brings out a different side of him that garners darker results.The vampire costume seen in the music video reflects the dark side of him and displays the ‘bad habits’ he carries with himself.With each song on this album representing a specific moment in his life, Ed noted that “Bad Habits” derives from his desire to be fully present as a new father. Specifically, he wanted to curb habits of partying and drinking so that he could be ready to take his then-pregnant wife to the hospital whenever her water broke.Ed noted that while picking other singles such as “Sing,” “Shape of You,” and “Thinking Out Loud” that there is usually no pressure or outside influences, but with England planning to come out of its COVID-19 lockdown in June, he and his team opted to go with the larger dance track to match the feeling and emotion as opposed to a ballad.
