The superstar has today dropped his seventh record, Autumn Variations, which features a pointed number called Punchline about an imploding romance.
On the track, he sings: “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.”
In the heart-wrenching chorus, he continues: “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 sofreezing cold?”
Ed has been with childhood pal Cherry since 2015.
They married in 2019 and have daughters Lyra and Jupiter.
In another track, called That’s On Me, Ed sings: “This is not the end of our lives, this is just a bump in the ride. I know that it’ll be alright . . . ”
And on 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 is unclear which songs on the album have been written from Ed’s personal experiences, as he previously said the record is about events in both his and his friends’ lives.
When he announced the project, Ed said: “Last, I found that my friends and I were going through so many life changes.
