Ed Sheeran's sophomore album X was released yesterday and everyone wants to know one thing: how many of his swooning ballads and sneering kiss-offs are actually about touring partner-turned-BFF Taylor Swift? To answer that question, we've researched every song on X and come to some interesting conclusions.
2. I’m A Mess
10. The Man
11. Thinking Out Loud
12. Afire Love
Number of songs about Taylor: One.
Conclusions we can draw about the true nature of Ed and Taylor's relationship: Ed had a big crush on Taylor at the start of their friendship but moved on when it wasn't reciprocated. Sadly, a top-secret Sweeran love affair remains the stuff of fanfiction.
