“Perfect” was the first track Sheeran wrote for his third studio album.The song is a romantic ballad written about his girlfriend Cherry Seaborn, whom he knew from school and reconnected with when she was working in New York. Sheeran revealed that the inspiration for the lyrics came after visiting James Blunt’s house in Ibiza, where the two singers had listened to the rapper Future’s music at six in the morning. He said: “Barefoot on the grass, dancing to our favorite song, which happened to be Future’s “March Madness”… I booked the studio for the day, and I had that and I was like, right, let me just flesh that out. And the song happened and was sort of finished that day. I knew it was special.”

In an interview with Zane Lowe, Sheeran said that he needed to write the best love song of his career with “Perfect”. He said: “I need to do it 100% me, so everyone will listen to that will be like, “Ah! He can actually do it!” … I wanted to beat “Thinking Out Loud”, ’cause I know that song was going to define me.” He also produced the song himself with help from Will Hicks. This is the first time the brothers had collaborated on a song as it was the final wish of their grandmother to see the brothers working together before she died.

Ed Sheeran gets it all wrong;
So they were in love earlier, then they give it another shot; but the question hangs- if she is perfect, and she chooses him, then he *does* “deserve this”.
Telling her that she’s perfect and that he doesn’t deserve her puts a mortal woman above and beyond his reach.
I predict another separation. She is perfect *for him*.
Not happy.. hey Ed- stop whining and enjoy her!!
