Song lyrics

[Verse 1]
The club isn't the best place to find a lover
So the bar is where I go
Me and my friends at the table doing shots
Drinking fast and then we talk slow
And you come over and start up a conversation with just me...

Shape of You

Ed Sheeran


[Verse 1]
The club isn't the best place to find a lover
So the bar is where I go
Me and my friends at the table doing shots
Drinking fast and then we talk slow
And you come over and start up a conversation with just me
And trust me I'll give it a chance now
Take my hand, stop, put Van the Man on the jukebox
And then we start to dance, and now I'm singing like

[Pre-Chorus]
Girl, you know I want your love
Your love was handmade for somebody like me
Come on now, follow my lead
I may be crazy, don't mind me
Say, boy, let's not talk too much
Grab on my waist and put that body on me
Come on now, follow my lead
Come, come on now, follow my lead

[Chorus]
I'm in love with the shape of you
We push and pull like a magnet do
Although my heart is falling too
I'm in love with your body
And last night you were in my room
And now my bed sheets smell like you
Every day discovering something brand new
I'm in love with your body
Oh—I—oh—I—oh—I—oh—I
I'm in love with your body
Oh—I—oh—I—oh—I—oh—I
I'm in love with your body
Oh—I—oh—I—oh—I—oh—I
I'm in love with your body
Every day discovering something brand new
I'm in love with the shape of you

[Verse 2]
One week in we let the story begin
We're going out on our first date
You and me are thrifty, so go all you can eat
Fill up your bag and I fill up a plate
We talk for hours and hours about the sweet and the sour
And how your family is doing okay
Leave and get in a taxi, then kiss in the backseat
Tell the driver make the radio play, and I'm singing like

[Pre-Chorus]
Girl, you know I want your love
Your love was handmade for somebody like me
Come on now, follow my lead
I may be crazy, don't mind me
Say, boy, let's not talk too much
Grab on my waist and put that body on me
Come on now, follow my lead
Come, come on now, follow my lead

[Chorus]
I'm in love with the shape of you
We push and pull like a magnet do
Although my heart is falling too
I'm in love with your body
And last night you were in my room
And now my bed sheets smell like you
Every day discovering something brand new
I'm in love with your body
Oh—I—oh—I—oh—I—oh—I
I'm in love with your body
Oh—I—oh—I—oh—I—oh—I
I'm in love with your body
Oh—I—oh—I—oh—I—oh—I
I'm in love with your body
Every day discovering something brand new
I'm in love with the shape of you

[Bridge]
Come on, be my baby, come on
Come on, be my baby, come on
Come on, be my baby, come on
Come on, be my baby, come on
Come on, be my baby, come on
Come on, be my baby, come on
Come on, be my baby, come on
Come on, be my baby, come on

[Chorus]
I'm in love with the shape of you
We push and pull like a magnet do
Although my heart is falling too
I'm in love with your body
Last night you were in my room
And now my bed sheets smell like you
Every day discovering something brand new
I'm in love with your body
Come on, be my baby, come on
Come on, be my baby, come on
I'm in love with your body
Come on, be my baby, come on
Come on, be my baby, come on
I'm in love with your body
Come on, be my baby, come on
Come on, be my baby, come on
I'm in love with your body
Every day discovering something brand new
I'm in love with the shape of you

"Shape of You" Track Info



Ed Sheeran released “Shape of You” together with “Castle On The Hill.” The two songs were the first releases from his third album, ÷ (Divide), following in the mathematical footsteps of his + (Plus) and x (Multiply) albums.

“Shape Of You” is based around a tropical house-inspired lead melody and dancehall beat. A rhythm is given by xylophones, guitars, and percussions. The style and rhythm have been noted as close to the recent Sia success, “Cheap Thrills”, which has caused some controversy. Ed has denied receiving inspiration from the track. Just like “Cheap Thrills”, however, “Shape of You” was written with the intention of it being recorded by Rihanna, but Sheeran later decided to keep it for himself.

In the song, Sheeran sings about meeting someone at a bar and falling in love with her; a love distinct from those in much of his previous work as it's more focused on the physical than the emotional.

Sheeran had teased the song through a tweet that he had posted on January 5, 2017. The video had a colon that would then merge into a human body, referencing the “body”-inspiration of the song.

As of August 29, 2017, “Shape Of You” set a Billboard record, spending 33 straight weeks in the Top 10 of the Hot 100 chart.

On September 22, 2017, the track became the most streamed song of all time on the Spotify plaform at 1.318 billion plays. Sheeran passed Drake who previously held the record with “One Dance.”

The song won a Grammy Best Pop Solo Performance at the 2018 Grammys held on January 28, 2018.
