"Sense" as written by Tom Peter Odell and Eg White....
Hard to know,
Maybe if I skim the stone,
Walk a different way back home,
It would all make sense.

Oh, shut my eyes,
Lose myself in teenage lies,
If I fell in love a thousand times,
Would it all make sense?

'Cause I,
I've been feeling pretty small,
Sometimes,
Feel like I'm slipping down walls,
And every line,
I ever get a hold,
It seems to break.

Ca-call you up,
I can tell you just how much,
No, no maybe I'll just get drunk,
And it will all make sense.

Or if I weren't so nice,
I convince my friends that you were right,
I can promise you my heart don't cry,
Would it all make sense?

'Cause I,
I've been feeling pretty small,
Sometimes,
Feel like I'm slipping down walls,
And every lie,
I ever get a hold,
It seems to break.

Oh I,
I've been feeling pretty small,
Sometimes,
Feel like I'm slipping down walls,
And every lie,
I ever get a hold,
It seems to break.

    My InterpretationI think this song is about a search for self fulfilment.
    "Maybe if I skim the stone, walk a different way back home it would all make sense."
    He is in a state of absence searching for meaning in any and everything, this idea carries on as he says " if I fell in love a thousand times would it all make sense." He is searching for change or things that have not happened in his life , hoping and wondering if maybe he has these experiences his life and his purpose would make sense.

    In the chorus he is expressing how he feels like he is losing himself; that he is slowly slipping away. And that every chance he gets to hold onto himself or to attempt to recreate himself breaks.
