The song was written by Ed Sheeran while his girlfriend was on her way to the airport to fly back home after a visit. He wrote the song, recorded on his iPhone and sent it to her in an email. He said that the song was written basically just to say to her, “It’s really good, I feel happy, how do you feel?” This song almost didn’t make it on the album as Sheeran forgot he wrote it. Before completing the album he was going through his notes and asked his girlfriend what song she liked. She said “You forgotten it existed and I have it in my e-mail because I’m the only one you sent it to.” Sheeran ended up recording it although never a true single released it only made it to #41 on the Billboard charts in the US.
