"From The Dining Table" as written by and Tyler Johnson Jeffrey Nath Bhasker....
Woke up alone in this hotel room
Played with myself, where were you?
Fell back to sleep, I got drunk by noon
I've never felt less cool

We haven't spoke since you went away
Comfortable silence is so overrated
Why won't you ever be the first one to break?
Even the phone misses your call, by the way

I saw your friend that you know from work
He said you feel just fine
I see you gave him my old T-shirt
More of what was once mine

I see it's written, it's all over his face
Comfortable silence is so overrated
Why won't you ever say what you want to say?
Even my phone misses your call, by the way

Maybe one day you'll call me and tell me that you're sorry too
Maybe one day you'll call me and tell me that you're sorry too
Maybe one day you'll call me and tell me that you're sorry too
But you, you never do

Woke up the girl who looked just like you
I almost said your name

We haven't spoke since you went away
Comfortable silence is so overrated
Why won't you ever say what you want to say?
Even my phone misses your call
We haven't spoke since you went away
Comfortable silence is so overrated
Why won't you ever say what you want to say?
Even my phone misses your call, by the way

    My InterpretationThis is probably my favorite off of Harry's new album, despite it not getting nearly enough credit as I believe it deserves.

    To me this song is one you'd write at 3AM, when you're alone and needing someone to listen. Eventually that someone ends up being your pen and paper and you feel slightly deranged but fuck it, because writing will always be the one you can trust not to judge you.

    Comfortable silence is so overrated because it's not silent at all; your demons still taunt you in the corners of your mind and the one voice you are aching to hear echoes on a loop pedal in your ears. You don't understand how something so strong can make you feel so weak; afterall, how strong are you really when you're always the one caving in? You don't want to be the weak one anymore, the one who breaks.

    But if you don't break, then who will?

    My InterpretationHe is obviously missing an ex (who he really loves still). He is bitter at the split (upset that she has moved on ... giving someone else his clothes) and is struggling to move on.

    The first verse really doesn't leave anything to the imagination!!! (Most artists at least use a metaphor or innuendo for wanking ... not Harry!)
