Free to explore his feelings, our protagonist gets drunk, contemplates self harm, moves quickly into drunk call territory and then sees the future with his name deleted from his ex's phone...

lyrics

Big black hole (In the Middle of Me) On the bright side of it-
(error in judgment-comedy)-


Midnight comes a strolling and it’s drowned in a din
(And the) conversations flowing to the drunken chagrin
(An it’) suddenly ain’t so funny with closing and winds

(Drums jungle jazz-swing/shakers)
There’s a hole in the middle and it’s looking at me
(bass Latin)
There’s a whole in the middle that’s a ‘used to be we’
There’s a hole in the middle and it’s looking at me
Though the only one to notice is the absence of glee

(drums- double hat/tambourine)
there is a hole in the middle and it’s looking at me
hole in the middle where we used to be
there’s a hole in the middle and it’s looking at me
nothing really present where I used to be

(drums-ad bell/ skiffle)
there is a hole in the middle and it’s looking at me
hole in the middle where we used to be
there’s a hole in the middle and it’s looking at me

nothing really present where I used to be
nothing really present where I used to be
nothing really present where I used to be…

‘Think on the bright side of it,
Blood would stain the carpet and the sides
and the maid is off,
‘Til Tuesday. ( I think at least)
rigor will have set and gone again.( again)
Think of the drama, (oh, I know)
Effin’ palaver,
With the law and all;
Everyone helpless,( sad and pale)
Trying hard to find some sense in this
(In this)
I’m not disabled, (some sense in this)
I could see my way to cover
All, the hall.
So that there’s no waste (waste the waste!)
Sprayed upon the house that all of they
Will still
Still have to live in (oh, oh no!)
If I stay upon my bloody course
Of course
I could be weeping
Perhaps (perhaps)
Perhaps, I’ll have a pint and try and call!
(drunk call! chorus)
well, it’s better than dying
(yes, that’s best!)
it´s better than lying to myself,
that I... could do it
(oh, that I)
(oh, I) could really do it

ummm, I wonder if you’ll wake (awake)
(oh, oh)I wonder if you’ll
mute the phone
(oh, oh, oh, oh!)
I wonder if you’ll delete my name?

You, (yes you!) You´ve gone and lost a screw
You’ve gone and done the only thing guaranteed to make you blue
Well you seem serene
Beneath your pomp and cream
At least I have the self respect to stalk for dignity

(Well it hear it comes), (ear drums!) I’m gonna ring you up
Ring you up and call you all the things that rhyme with slut
Buuuhht, I love you so (violins and crying)
( why did you have to go?)
Now I cannot see the phone
While I am crying
Walking home.

I wonder if you’ll wake (awake)
I wonder if you’ll mute the phone
(oh, wohow-oh; oh, oh, oh)
I wonder if you’ll delete my name?

(if there is to be a c section then it will be here-consider it. Tripplet stab rhythm lines and violin and guit/reed/basoon

(Add- bass sax and cello)
Your bra, your bra! I have your new pink bra
Legit reason, thank you gov(ernor), for some repartois!
And its only 4
(I could still knock on the door)
Nice and early, rise and shine. How about some corner wine?

Tell her straight,
( not wait)
(you love me take me back!!)
take no nonsense, set her right
I’ll be lucky all that night
Yes, it’s true, I’m pissed(pissed, I’m pissed)
if my mum where here right now
she’d say, ‘Its true he’s done you proud!’

ummm, I wonder if you’ll wake (awake)
(oh, oh)I wonder if you’ll
mute the phone
(oh, oh, oh, oh!)
I wonder if you’ll delete my name?
