[Verse: Ed Sheeran]
Waking up, half past five
Blood on pillow and one bruised eye
Drunk too much, you know what I’m like
But you should’ve seen the other guy

[Pre-Chorus: Ed Sheeran]
This ain’t the right time for you to fall in love with me
Baby I’m just being honest
And I know my lies could not make you believe
We’re running in circles that’s why

[Chorus 1: Ed Sheeran]
In my dark times I’ll be going back to the street
Promising everything I do not mean
In my dark time, baby this is all I could be
And only my mother can love me for me
In my dark times, in my dark times

[Verse 2: The Weeknd]
Light one up, let me bum a smoke
Still calming down, dripping throat
I got another man’s blood on my clothes
But an endless fog’s the life I chose

[Pre-Chorus: The Weeknd]
This ain’t the right time for you to fall in love with me
But baby I’m just being honest
And I know my lies could never make you believe
Running in circles, that’s why

[Chorus 2: The Weeknd]
In my dark times I’ll be going back to these streets
Promising everything I do not mean
In my dark times, baby this is all I could be
Only my mother could love me for me
In my dark times, in my dark times

[Verse 3: Ed Sheeran & The Weeknd]
In my dark times I’ve still got some problems I know
Driving too fast but just moving too slow
And I’ve got something I’ve been trying to let go
Pulling me back every time

[Chorus 3: Ed Sheeran & The Weeknd]
In my dark times taking it back to the street
Making those promises that I could not keep
In my dark times, baby this is all I could be
Only my mother could love me for me)
In my dark times taking it down to the street
Making those promises that I would not keep
In my dark time this is all I could be
Only my mother could’ve loved me for me
In my dark times, in my dark time
In my dark times
