Dude....I wish the song I just finished mixing had no chorus! YEESH!!! This thing had John growls, high pitched Jen voice, echos, lead guitar, slamming riffs, my mind can't take any more choruses!
But seriously I don't see it as a problem to not have them in your song. I also think those sax breaks are definitely needed and yes I do think that the sax is the right instrument. Guitar would work too, but I really like the sax you have there.

OK, I've listened again........ I think I'm getting it. The mood of the music in contrast to the mood of the lyrics is the whole point, right? It's ironic?
In a way. The bouncy melody reflects the kind of guy he is. Smiling through gritted teeth, holding it together, unable to express his true feelings. He wouldn't be the kind of chap to give in to speaking slowly in a minor key. That's kind of the point of "I don't, I won't." He knows he doesn't have a way to let it all out.
Also, I didn't want it to sound whiny 🙂
I may or may not be an enigma
