I hope this is OK. Sounds reasonably accurate to me. 
Ed Sheeran plays it with all barre chords, I think, 
but you don't have to; it sounds fine either way.
I have tried to keep the chord above the word it is
meant to be played over, but I did have some difficulty 
with it.

Chords: A D A E F#m E A D

                    DUDU
Strumming pattern: DxxxxD D(UDU) (How I play it, not necessarily correct).
                   A      D
                   A      E
                   F#m    E
                   A      D

                A
Could I wake up next to you
           
When we're hitting double figures
D              A
Look into your eyes

Like I'm looking into double mirrors
E                 F#m
Could you make it any clearer
                    E
Everything's such a blur
      A
It's not my turn
		 D
It's hers to get hurt
     A
On a late night
        	        D
Coming home from way too many train rides
A
Lace not as red as my face
    E           F#m
I'm home at the same time

Highbury estate's fine
E              A
Smoking like a dragon, but don't chase lines,
D
He-ey.

A               D            A
I haven't slept for the past week
                E          F#m
Two hours ain't enough for me
                    E          A         D
I feel inspired, at quarter to three am
A 	          D              A
I haven't changed since our last meet
                         E         F#m
I'm still getting all my meals for free
 		        E     A        D
Think I'm being shunned by my feet again

A                   D        A
It's not a homeless life for me
                                 E      F#m
It's just I'm home less than I'd like to be
                    E        A
It's not a homeless life for me
                                 D       A
It's just I'm home less than I'd like to be
A                   D        A
It's not a homeless life for me
                                 E      F#m
It's just I'm home less than I'd like to be
                    E        A
It's not a homeless life for me, yeah

            D        	 A
And now I'm sitting on a night bus

Flicking through my iPod
D	         A
Feeling kinda tired

So I try to close my eyes up
E                F#m
Driver, turn the lights off
                     E
Lights on, on stage, mic's on
A
Song plays, nice one
              D
Gotta keep my hype strong
A
Truth be, never went to Uni
D 		 A
People see right through me

but I'm not a fool, see
    E           F#m
I'm never gonna do one
                 E
Gonna live past 22, done
A
Everything I need to
             D
Except get a 2:1


A               D            A
I haven't slept for the past week
                E          F#m
Two hours ain't enough for me
                    E          A         D
I feel inspired, at quarter to three am
A 	          D              A
I haven't changed since our last meet
                         E         F#m
I'm still getting all my meals for free
 		        E     A        D
Think I'm being shunned by my feet again


A                   D        A
It's not a homeless life for me
                                 E      F#m
It's just I'm home less than I'd like to be
                    E        A
It's not a homeless life for me
                                 D       A
It's just I'm home less than I'd like to be
A                   D        A
It's not a homeless life for me
                                 E      F#m
It's just I'm home less than I'd like to be
                    E        A
It's not a homeless life for me, yeah


E    F#m
When I feel cold
D           A
You keep me warm
    E       F#m
And I'm not looking for some loose change
     E 
Just wanna find a true mate
    D               
Who wants to be my duvet 


A                   D        A
It's not a homeless life for me
                                 E      F#m
It's just I'm home less than I'd like to be
                    E        A
It's not a homeless life for me
                                 D       A
It's just I'm home less than I'd like to be
A                   D        A
It's not a homeless life for me
                                 E      F#m
It's just I'm home less than I'd like to be
                    E        A
It's not a homeless life for me, yeah
E   A
Oh, oh.

This doesn't sound quite right. The verse and chorus are spot-on, but the pre-chorus doesn't follow the same pattern, I don't think.
