"Sweet Dreams, TN" as written by and Alex Turner....
I just sort of always feel sick without you baby
I ain't got anything to lick without you baby
Nothing really sticks without you baby
Ain't I fallen in love?

It's just the pits without you baby
It's really just the pits without you baby
It's like everyone's a dick without you baby
Ain't I fallen in love?

And all my pals will tell me that I'm crazy
You bet I'm loopy alright!
And I just don't recognize this fool that you
Have made me,
I haven't seen him for a while

And as you're shrinking figure blows a kiss
I catch and smash it on my lips
Darling I can't seem to quit
Completely falling to bits
I really might be losing it
The idea that you've existed all along's
I don't know what to say

Baby we ought to fuck seven years of bad
Luck out the powder room mirror
Could I have made it any clearer?

It's love like a tongue in a nostril
Love like an ache in the jaw
You're the first day of spring with a septum piercing

    My InterpretationI like that it builds as an earnest love ballad until the end twist; similar to Cornestone I feel.

    The reality is that it's about a drug-fuelled (jaw ache could indicate cocaine) fuck/fling in a club or somewhere (broken powder room mirror).. Coupled with the title which could be interpreted as him not knowing her name and just labelling her as being in/from Tennessee.

    Song MeaningIt's about his current girlfriend, Taylor - almost an ode to her. She's from Tennessee and has a septum piercing. Seven years of bad luck meaning it took him a handful of past girlfriends over the period of 7 years to finally find her.
