Ellie Goulding's "On My Mind"
Listen to Ellie's new single off upcoming album 'Delerium'.

Folks, look — we don’t really know if Ed Sheeran‘s 2014 kiss-and-tell single “Don’t” was written about the short fling he had with Ellie Goulding or if Ellie’s new single “On My Mind” is a response to said diss track by Ed…but, I mean, you can kind of connect the dots and sort out exactly how the affair played out, if there really was an affair. (Oh, there’s probably was, right?)

Hotel rooms, pizza, gin, texts, tattoos…the sexiness of it all.

And so we decided to pick out a few disses from the lyrics of each song, to suss out who got in the best jabs. You can peruse them below, then let us know who you think this battle of the bitter post-breakup diatribes.

ED SHEERAN: “I met this girl late last year, she said, ‘Don’t you worry if I disappear’ / I told her I’m not really looking for another mistake / I called an old friend thinking that the trouble would wait”

ELLIE GOULDING: “Next thing that I know I’m in a hotel with you / you were talking deep like it was mad love to you”

ED SHEERAN: “She told me, ‘I was never looking for a friend /maybe you can swing by my room around ten bBaby bring the lemon and a bottle of gin /We’ll be in between the sheets ’till the late AM’ / Baby if you wanted me then you should have just said”

ELLIE GOULDING: “You wanted my heart but I just liked your tattoos”

ED SHEERAN: “Don’t fuck with my love / That heart is so cold / All over my own / I don’t wanna know that babe”

ELLIE GOULDING: “You don’t mess with love, you mess with the truth”

ED SHEERAN: “I never intended to be next, but you didn’t need to to take him to bed, that’s all / and I never saw him as a threat, until you disappeared with him to have sex of course”

ELLIE GOULDING: “I always hear, always hear them talking / talking about a girl, about a girl with my name / saying that I hurt you but I still don’t get it / you didn’t love me, no, not really”

ED SHEERAN: “I wasn’t looking for a promise or commitment / but it was never just fun and I thought you were different”

ELLIE GOULDING: “You got yourself in a dangerous zone / ’cause we both have the fear, fear of being alone”

There you have it. Who do you think got under the other’s skin more effectively? Let us know below!
