Recording Dates[]

  • July 12, 2018 (Ed Sheeran's Vocal Takes)
  • November 29, 2018 (Ariana's Vocal Takes)
  • December 2, 2018 (Ariana's Vocal Takes)
  • January 7, 2019 (Ed's and Ariana's Vocal Takes)

Background[]

On September 19, 2019, the first snippet of the song leaked online under, "Summer Nights", but was leaked in full the next day on September 20, 2019.

The session/stems of the song ended up leaking on Discord before the song itself, which then lead another leaker to post the full mastered version of the song after finding out about the leaked stems.

Trivia[]

  • The line that Ariana sung "this ain't man's world, thank you next, I'ma go my own way" references her 2018 single, "Thank U, Next".
  • Ariana's verse was recorded in the same session as "Break Up With Your Girlfriend, I'm Bored".
  • After the song was leaked, the song was being played illegally on Sydney's KIIS 1065 radio station.[1][2] The radio station made a tweet about the collaboration on October 23, 2019, but the song was still unofficially unreleased.[3]
    • On October 24, 2019, Ed Sheeran's manager, Stuart Camp, replied to a fans tweet stating that the song was coming out soon. He shut down this rumor saying "It’s most definitely not. And this is a terrible mix of it too.. just dreadful." (Most likely referring to the unmixed demo that was leaked before the mastered version). The tweets have since been deleted from his page.

Lyrics[]

[Intro: Ed Sheeran & Ariana Grande]
No lo-lo-love for the lonely, no lo-lo-love for the lonely
No lo-lo-love for the lonely, no lo-lo-love for the lonely

[Verse 1: Ed Sheeran]
Another night, another club
Another room, another one
When morning comes, I'm runnin' off
I found lust, but I wanna find love
And every time I get close, I run wild and explode
I don't know why, you're not enough

[Pre-Chorus 1: Ed Sheeran]
No lie, yeah, my mama never raised me to be a bad boy
To chase women and to only break hearts, that's fine
When you're eighteen but when you're older
To find love, yeah, you gotta grow up
Sometimes bein' solo is the way to go, I've been doin' it too long
But you never know though
'Cause maybe you could just be the one, ayy

[Chorus: Ed Sheeran]
Summer nights, and no love for the lonely
Don't come near me, 'cause I'll only break your heart
And I will try to find someone to hold me
My love is a flickering candle
In the dark

[Verse 2: Ariana Grande]
Another night, another day
Been thinkin' 'bout it wide awake
I never thought I'd be alone
While everybody blowin' up my phone
Don't trust no one, no, so don't wanna get close
I get mine, I walk away

[Pre-Chorus 2: Ariana Grande]
No lie, yeah, my mama always told me to be a bad girl
Never let anybody get in the way of what I'm tryna do now
This ain't man's world, thank you next, I'ma go my own way
Sometimes bein' solo is the way to go
When you need to figure shit out
And if I want you boy, I'ma tell you so
'Cause I'm the one in control, yeah

[Chorus: Ed Sheeran & Ariana Grande]
Summer nights, and no love for the lonely
Don't come near me, 'cause I'll only break your heart
And I will try to find someone to hold me
My love is a flickering candle, in the dark

[Post-Chorus: Ed Sheeran & Ariana Grande]
No lo-lo-love for the lonely, no lo-lo-love for the lonely
No lo-lo-love for the lonely, no lo-lo-love for the lonely (No lo-lo-love)
No lo-lo-love for the lonely (Yuh), no lo-lo-love for the lonely (No lo-lo-love)
No lo-lo-love for the lonely, no lo-lo-love for the lonely (Oh, yeah)

[Chorus: Ed Sheeran & Ariana Grande]
Summer nights, and no love for the lonely
Don't come near me, 'cause I'll only break your heart
And I will try to find someone to hold me, yeah
My love is a flickering candle (Flickering candle, yeah), in the dark

[Post-Chorus: Ed Sheeran & Ariana Grande]
No lo-lo-love for the lonely (Yuh), no lo-lo-love for the lonely, in the dark (No lo-lo-love)
No lo-lo-love for the lonely (Love for the lonely), no lo-lo-love for the lonely, in the dark

[Outro: Ed Sheeran & Ariana Grande]
And I will try to find someone to hold me (Mhm)
My love is a flickering candle, in the dark
