#3 “Perfect” by Ed Sheeran
“Perfect was the first song that I wrote for the album. It was inspired by Cherry (Sheeran’s childhood sweetheart and now-fiancee). The line that goes, ‘Barefoot on the grass, listening to our favorite song’ was about when we were in Ibiza listening to Future’s March Madness literally not wearing any shoes and going mental on the lawn, which was quite a nice time. I didn’t see her first reaction to the song because she lived in New York at the time. So I just emailed it to her but she did really like it,” the singer told Us Magazine.
