Complete Lyrics to You Need Me, I Don’t Need You by Ed Sheeran

Thanks to my friend who introduced this amazing song to me, here are the complete lyrics for the 11-minute version! He has searched high and low for this so thanks to him! So I just copy-pasted this so I’m not sure if it’s actually 100% right but still, this is it! Enjoy!

Now I’m in town, break it down, thinking of making a new sound
Playing a different show every night in front of a new crowd
That’s you now, ciao, seems that life is great now
See me lose focus as I sing to you loud
I can’t, no, I won’t hush, I say the words that make you blush
I’m gonna sing this now (ow, ow)

See, I’m true, my songs are where my heart is
I’m like glue, I stick to other artists
I’m not you, now that would be disastrous
Let me sing and do my thing and move to greener pastures
See, I’m real, I do it all, it’s all me
I’m not fake, don’t ever call me lazy
I won’t stay put, give me the chance to be free
Suffolk sadly seems to sort of suffocate me

Cos you need me man I don’t need you
You need me man I don’t need you
You need me man I don’t need you
Until you need me man I don’t need you
You need me man I don’t need you
You need me man I don’t need you
You need me man I don’t need you
Until you need me

I sing, I write my own tune and I write my own verse, hell
Don’t need another wordsmith to make my tune sell
Call yourself a singer-writer, you’re just bluffing
Name’s on the credits and you didn’t write nothing
I sing fast, I know that all my shit’s cool
I will blast and I didn’t go to BRIT School
I came fast with the way I act, right
I can’t last, if I’m smoking on a crack pipe

And I won’t be a product of my genre
My mind will always be stronger than my songs are
Never believe the bullshit that fake guys feed to ya
Always read the stories that you hear in Wikipedia
And musically I’m demonstrating
When I perform live feels like I am meditating
Times at The Enterprise when some fella filmed me
Young singer-writer like a Gabriella Cilmi

Cos you need me man I don’t need you
You need me man I don’t need you
You need me man I don’t need you
Until you need me man I don’t need you
You need me man I don’t need you
You need me man I don’t need you
You need me man I don’t need you
Until you need me

And all I want in this cold world is to make music
And use it not to abuse it
And get infected then facted with the who’s who of music
Who did it, who is it, who’s in it
Who’s what the hell does it matter chitter chatter don’t matter with the yidi yidi yada
Don’t matter to me all I want is a bit of dignity
Hear me to battle this industry
Freely to be me in this CD needy world can you hear me?
Hey

So I keep singing that
When I first started this rapping shit
I felt pressure from haters
Became invaded with sadists
And just developed a hater radar
I’m aimed for the stars
Kept my grind in the dark

Then they came with the remedy kicking rhymes with the melody
Hennessey shots and all these fools on the block
Who said you’ve got to be a gangster now to raise the top
Just a normal casual usual everyday type of guy
With my head in the sky
Ed Sheeran urban angel
Coming ready to die
So see the signs
Stand at the side
Open your eyes and take a look and realise
The resurrection’s arrived
And as the mist clears
I arise from my tomb in the skies
All alone a lone star
Urban angel rising from the ashes surprising
No haters, guiding no moving

I’m steady you can find me in the club
Bottle full of bub
Mummy I’ve got the X if you’re into taking drugs
Into having sex, I ain’t into making love
Come give me a hug if you’re into getting rough
You can find me in the club, club
Bottle full of bubbly mummy
I’ve got the X if you’re into taking drugs
Into having sex, I ain’t into making love
Come give me a hug if you’re into getting rough

Uh huh, uh huh hooooo
Uh huh, uh huh

Cos you need me man I don’t need you
You need me man I don’t need you
You need me man (I don’t need you)
Cos you need me man I don’t need
You need me man I don’t need
You need me man

My eyes are red
I’ve been burning, I’ve been burning
My eyes are red
I’ve been burning, I’ve been burning
My eyes are red
I’ve been burning, I’ve been burning on a spliff of your high grade
My eyes are red
I’ve been burning, I’ve been burning, burning, burning

Now where I come from burning weed it is a ‘abit
A big fat bag o’ ‘igh grade ya you know I got to ‘ave it
Cos if I don’ ‘ave it in my pocket I go’n to panic
Cos like I say where I come from we smoking is a ‘abit
Yeah

We cook da bun and da rizzla up in de hood
Waiting for da tings I ‘ave inherited like a ghetto man should
One o’ them things it’s okay because it makes me feel good
Burning high grade weed because it makes me feel
But me listen man a couple says to me ya is a drug.
And if I start to smoke it ima-nna turn into a thug.
Where I come from that they talking could that only get ya mug.
Where I come from burning weed it is a blessing from above.
Where I come from yes we bun it when we listen rub a dub.
Where I come from yes we bun it afta we just-a make a love.
Where I come from yes we bun it when the sun starts shine.
I blaze high grade weed all the time.
Now my eyes are red

Cos you need me man I don’t need you
You need me man,
My eyes are red
You need me man I don’t need you
You need me man,
My eyes are red
You need me man I don’t need you
You need me man,
My eyes are red
You need me man I don’t need you
You need me

‘Cos with the lyrics I’ll be aiming it right,
I won’t stop till my name is in lights
At stadium heights with Damien Rice, on red carpets,
now I’m on Arabian nights
Because I’m young I know my brother’s gonna give me advice
Long nighter, short height and I’m going hyper
Never be anything but a singer-songwriter
Yeah, the game’s over but now I’m on a new level
Watch how I step on the track without a loop pedal
People think that I’m bound to blow up,
I’ve done around about a thousand shows
But I haven’t got a house plus I live on the couch
So you believe the lyrics when I’m singing them out (wow)
From day one, I’ve been prepared, with VO5 wax for my ginger hair
So now I’m back to the sofa giving a dose of what the future holds
‘Cos it’s another day,

I still got a rucksack with the old clothes
I rap with the cold flows
I’m back with the old jokes, in fact you don’t know
On tracks I throw blows to make my punch lines relevant
If you can’t keep up you’ll get none, your celibate
My flows developing, skin lacks the melanin
Give me shot of adrenaline and I get it in
I do it for the hell of it
Ever since I hit the mainstream with the A team I seem to sell a bit
I took what held me back with the women and then I packaged him in his
Put in some content and I sold it back as a gimmick
The fact is ill end up dating actresses
Wake up on dirty mattresses, I think I need to practice this
But I make shit happen call me a laxative
Worlds on my shoulders I dont even know what atlas is
Hand bars sharp like cactus is
Im back to rapping back to backers
Ive been practicing im back to sing this

Cos you need me man I don’t need you
You need me man I don’t need you
You need me man I don’t need you
Until you need me man I don’t need you
You need me man I don’t need you
You need me man I don’t need you
You need me man I don’t need you
Until you need me

I keep my last name forever
I keep my genre pretty basic
And I’m gonna be breaking into other peoples tunes when I chase it
Replace it with the elephant in the room with a facelift
Into another rapper’s shoes using new laces
I’m selling CDs from my rucksack, aiming for the papers
Selling CDs from my rucksack, aiming for the majors
Nationwide ‘till we just jack it’s easy to get the bus back
Clean cut kid without a razor for the moustache
I hit back, when the pen hurts me
I’m still a choir boy in a Fenchurch tee
I’m just the same as a year ago
But more people hear me though
According to the Myspace and YouTube videos
I’m always doing shows if I’m not I’m in the studio
Truly broke never growing up call me rufio
Melody music maker
Reading all the papers
They say I’m up and coming like I’m fucking in an elevator.
