The singer-songwriter, 32, dropped his seventh studio album Autumn Variations today (September 29), marking his first to be released by his own record label, Gingerbread Man.
Former childhood sweethearts Sheeran and Cherry Seaborn, 31, have been together since 2015 and tied the knot in 2019.
The couple are parents to daughters Jupiter, 15 months, and Lyra, two.
In lyrics, seen by The Sun, Sheeran laments: “I can’t help but be destructive right now / It’s been weeks since I saw your outline.
“In my room is a silence so loud / This is what losing hope might sound like.”
“I can’t help it but I love you so / I can’t take this letting go / I still feel like we could work it out or something.
“All I am is only flesh and bone / Why’s your heart so freezing cold?”
In another track, he reportedly details a “bump in the ride”, while stressing in the song that it is “not the end of our lives”.
He sings: “This is not the end of our lives, this is just a bump in the ride / I know that it’ll be alright.”
In the song The Day I Was Born, he sings: “I broke apart from my lover a couple months ago, if they were here then I guess I wouldn’t be alone.”
It’s unclear which lyrics relate to Sheeran’s relationship with Seaborn, as he has stated that the album has been inspired by both his own experiences as well as those of friends.
The Standard has contacted a representative for Ed Sheeran for comment.
