Ed Sheeran appears in the video for "Bad Habits."

It had been nearly four years since Sheeran last released a solo single, so a lot was riding on the release of “Bad Habits.” On the day he released the song, he revealed the inspiration behind the visual. “Feels great to be back with my new single. I wanted the video for ‘Bad Habits’ to play on the nature of habits in a fantastical way so I decided on vampires,” Sheeran said in a press release. “It was mega fun getting into character except for the heights (that wasn’t so fun).”

The song was penned all about how late-night habits with a toxic person, but the lyrics could be interpreted in so many different ways. If you’re looking to include a little inspo from Sheeran in your next social media post, these lyrics are a good place to start.

Bad Habits Lyrics

One, two, three, four
Ooh, oohEvery 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 wonderfulMy 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 doMy 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 youOoh-ooh, ooh-ooh
My bad habits lead to you
Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh
My bad habits lеad to youEvery pure intention ends when the good times start
Fallin’ over everything to reach the first-time spark
Started under neon lights and then it all got dark
I only know how to go too farMy 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 doMy 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 youOoh-ooh, ooh-ooh
My bad habits lead to you
Ooh-ooh, ooh-oohWe took the long way ’round
And burned ’til the fun ran out, nowMy 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 doMy 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 youOoh-ooh, ooh-ooh
My bad habits lead to you
Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh
My bad habits lead to you
