He sings the lyrics from the George R.

R. Martin book 'A Dance with Dragons' - "He rode through the streets of the city / Down from his hill on high / O'er the winds and the steps and the cobbles / He rode to a woman's sigh / For she was his secret treasure / She was his shame and his bliss / And a chain and a keep are nothing / Compared to a woman's kiss / For hands of gold are always cold / But a woman's hands are warm."

After which Arya tells Sheeran's character, "It's a pretty song, I've never heard it before,' to which he responds, 'It's a new one.' Here is the clip of the Shape of you singer that took everone by surprice:

His cameo has everyone playing wordplay on his songs.
