And she won't be surprised and she won't be shocked
When she's pressed the star after she's pressed unlock
And there's verse and chapter sat in her inbox
And all that is said is that you've drank a lot

Meaning

Getting very drunk leads many desperate young lads to text message to a girl, perhaps an ex, which at the time of writing seems to be beautiful and complimentary poetry, but to the receiver just seems like the incoherent ravings of a pisshead.

He’s desperate for a girl to come home with him tonight so he even asks his ex, drunk.
