"Love Forty Down" as written by and Frank Turner....
I'm love forty down
As the match slips away from me, I need the crowd to pray for me
To turn this one around
I've worked far too hard to be this far from victory

I'm battered and I'm bruised
And I can't afford to lose

And I'm love forty down
And as life slips away from me, I have to say that honestly
I still haven't found
The person who could take the strain of deuce and fine back again

So, I'll do this on my own
There's no one waiting when I'm done

In the time it takes for the server to rise and fall
We'll find out if I am a man or a mouse, if I am set to rise or fall

And I'm love forty down
And I can well recall the day my father reached the ancient age
That I'm now staring down
Through the barrel of my fourth decade and honestly I am afraid

And I'm long in the tooth
But I'm ready for the truth

In the time it takes for the umpire to flip his coin
We'll find out if I can take the strain if I can make it through break point

'Cause I'm love forty down
I'm gonna turn this one around
I'm love 40 down
I'm gonna turn this one around
Break point
Break point
I'm gonna turn this one around

    My InterpretationI think it's about addiction - "I've worked far too hard to be this far from victory,
    I'm battered and I'm bruised, And I can't afford to lose" seems to me to reflect that.
