"Middle of the Bed" as written by and Lucy Rose Parton....
I sleep in the middle of the bed
You don't know, is it fine to hold my hand?
I sleep in the middle of the bed
Sun slips through my cold hands

Do you really want me back?
Do you really want me back?

'Cause I'm over it, over you
All over the town they say I love you
I'm over it, I'm over you
All over the town
They say I love you, yeah
They say I always will
They say I love you, yeah
These wounds, they won't heal

I talk to myself at night
Better still when the lights are turned out
I talk inside my head
Better if nobody knows what I said

Do you really want me back?
Do you really want me back?

'Cause I'm over it, over you
All over the town they say I love you
I'm over it, I'm over you
All over the town
They say I love you, yeah
They say I always will
They say I love you, yeah
These wounds, they won't heal

It's all over the town
You're spreading the word
It's all over the town
You're spreading the word

If you knew me at all
You should all know my answers
If you knew me at all
You should all know my answers

If you knew me at all
You should all know my answers
If you knew me at all
You should all know my answers

They say I love you, yeah
They say I always will
They say I love you, yeah
These wounds, they won't heal

They say I love you, yeah
They say I always will
They say I love you, yeah
These wounds, they won't heal

The sun slowly falls through

    My InterpretationI think this song is about a relationship where two lovers have decided to go their separate ways but everyone seems to think she's not over him yet and she isn't sure either. Both are also confused by the new status of their relationship and how they should behave around each other ('you don't know, is it fine to hold my hand?') and the song is her thinking about whether she wants to get back with him or vice versa ('Do you really want me back?') or not at all. The idea of being in the middle of the bed is a symbol of her new found singularity as she can now sleep in the middle of the bed cos she's not sharing it with him. The 'If you knew me at all, You should all know my answers' bit is her saying that he should know how she feels and maybe she has decided she wants to get back with him. The Chorus is the idea that although she's trying to deny it she knows that she'll never truly be over him which is portrayed beautifully through the 'these wounds, they won't heal' line. Absolutely love this song, great meaning behind it and Lucy sings it so well. She is perfect :')
