The Best Of Luck Club

Don’t Be So Hard On Yourself

You sound
Tired on the phone
It’s fair enough
It’s been a while since you’ve been home
You say the smile on your face
Has gone beyond the realms of pretend
It’s clear to me
You’ve reached your limit once again

Oh, sometimes
You get a little teary
‘Cause you are sick of feeling
That all your time
Is waiting to be weighted
By something you are missing

You take off at Cape Canaveral
And pick me up like Coach Bombay
You’re school captain every year
You’re Christmas without Boxing Day
You haven’t had a day off in weeks
Your voice is shaking when you speak
It might not be my place to help
But don’t be so hard on yourself

You don’t
Do anything by halves
Don’t change
Because I’ve known that from the start
You say that things are spinning around and around
And you’ve lost control and you need to slow down
It’s clear to me
That you are ready for the end

No regrets when you get old
‘Cause you won’t stop
’Til the stars turn cold
You want things done by yesterday
A force of nature everywhere
Don’t always have to
Grin and bare it
Even when you’re far away

I Love You Like A Brother

Every Day's The Weekend

[Verse 1]
You sleep in my bed, even when I'm not at home
I have to make some money, while you're in sheets all alone
I think about you all the time, but we say it's just pretend
Fuck work, you're here, every day's the weekend

[Verse 2]
You say I make you nervous, well, I feel it double
Why is it so easy? We both know we're in trouble
I'm not so good with in between, but how bad can it really be?
So what, you're here, every day's the weekend
Don't know, don't care, every day's the weekend

[Chorus]
My hands are cold but my feet are not
Are you leaving me or have you just forgot?
Because in the end, we were never friends but more
(Oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh)
You've got things like a family
They're a bigger deal than I'll ever be
I know that's okay, we should ride this wave to shore
(Oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh)

[Verse 3]
You're going away to the place that you came from
If I had it my way, your stay here would be prolonged
Consider these conditions, forget your inhibitions
Don't look, jump in, every day's the weekend
Don't know, don't care, every day's the weekend

[Chorus]
My hands are cold but my feet are not
Are you leaving me or have you just forgot?
Because in the end, we were never friends but more
(Oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh)
You've got things like a family
They're a bigger deal than I'll ever be
I know that's okay, we should ride this wave to shore
(Oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh)

[Bridge]
Let's just do this, every day's the weekend
Doesn't matter what they say, every day's the weekend
Don't know, don't care, every day's the weekend
Fuck work, you're here, every day's the weekend
Monday, Tuesday, every day's the weekend
Wednesday, Thursday, every day's the weekend
I dont know what to say, every day's the weekend
Every day's the weekend

[Chorus]
My hands are cold but my feet are not
Are you leaving me or have you just forgot?
Because in the end, we were never friends but more
(Oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh)
You've got things like a family
They're a bigger deal than I'll ever be
I know that's okay, we should ride this wave to shore
(Oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh)

I Love You Like A Brother

[Verse 1]
You don't like sports and I don't like dresses
Luckily for us, our parents got the message
Always say "No" to combat my yeses
You know me better than I give you credit
People say we look the same, but I don't think we do
Maybe that's a consequence of sharing the same womb
Clashed like the band, but now we're back stronger
While we're both young yet still a bit older

[Chorus]
I love you like a brother, just like I oughta
I love you like a brother, just like I oughta
I love you like a brother, just like I oughta
Just like I oughta, yeah

[Verse 2]
From the same divorce and from the same wedding
We couldn't help that marriage ending
Mothers and fathers don't last forever
We don't get a choice, so let's stick together

[Chorus]
I love you like a brother, just like I oughta
I love you like a brother, just like I oughta
I love you like a brother, just like I oughta
Just like I oughta, yeah

[Bridge]
Ooh, things could get heavy
But I know, I know, I know, I know
I know we're starting again

[Verse 3]
I play guitar and you ride a skateboard
You ask me questions like I'm a magic 8-ball
I'm your big sister, you're my little brother
Things are never perfect but I wouldn't want another

[Chorus]
I love you like a brother, just like I oughta
I love you like a brother, just like I oughta
I love you like a brother, just like I oughta
Just like I oughta, yeah
I love you like a brother, just like I oughta
I love you like a brother, just like I oughta
I love you like a brother, just like I oughta
Just like I oughta, yeah

Perth Traumatic Stress Disorder

[Verse 1]
Perth is lucky that she's pretty
Otherwise, I'd hate that city
The only place my heart's been torn in two
Always worth the lengthy flight
And sometimes the warm sleepless nights
There's no such thing as coming back too soon

[Chorus]
A different situation I don't know
When I have some luck the standard's low
I still can't recover from the way you let me down
I mean you got a new girl, yeah, that's fine
But I think about it all the time
I resent the way you made me love your Western town

[Verse 2]
Perth is lucky that she's pretty
Otherwise, I'd hate that city
Isolated from my Eastern life
Bands and bars on widened streets
Where beaches meet the urban heat
And people seem to be friendly and nice

[Chorus]
I know I should probably let it go
But it's only now I finally know
You were only trouble, looking for a place to stay
Yeah, I got to visit somewhere new
Now forever tainted with thoughts of you
Didn't even get an inadvertent holiday

[Bridge]
Ah-ooooooooohhhhh
Ah-ooooooooohhhhh
Ah-ooooooooohhhhh
Ah-ooooooooohhhhh

[Outro]
Perth is lucky that she's pretty
Otherwise, I'd hate that city
Hate this city, love this city
Perth, you're lucky you're so pretty

B-Grade University EP

Ivy League

[Verse 1]
If I was an Ivy League
Kind of girl
Do you think that they would give me more
Shifts at work?

Spent all my day
Walking 'round the local lake
Never thought I would have this
9 to 5 heartache

[Chorus 1]
I went to B-grade university
And got myself an arts degree, oh-oh!

[Verse 2]
If I was an Ivy League
Kind of girl
Do you think that I'd be different
Would it change my world?

Spend all my day
Getting on the honour roll
Then I'd go and get married
So I don't live on the Dole

[Chorus 1]
I went to B-grade university
And got myself an arts degree, oh-oh!

[Instrumental]

[Bridge 3]
I'll be a straight-A student
And pass with flying colours
Get invited to do honours...

I'll be a workplace dreamboat
Job interviews-- I know it all
I'll be so damn employable...

[Chorus 2]
I went to B-grade university
And got myself an arts degree, oh-oh!

I went to B-grade university
And got myself an arts degree, oh-oh!

Let's Go Out

[Verse 1]
Spit-shine my shoes
Stay away from the casino
I haven't seen you in a while
Got to pull my shit together

[Pre-Chorus 1]
Hey, remember that time that we slept together?
And we just slept, and your girlfriend dumped you anyway
I don't hold that against her...

[Chorus]
Let's go out and have fun tonight
Let's go out and get drunk tonight
Let's pretend that we're alone tonight
Let's go out and have fun

Let's go out and have fun tonight
Let's go out and get drunk tonight
Let's pretend that we're alone tonight
Let's go out and have fun

[Verse 2]
Your mother likes me
She always asks me how I'm going
But that's early in the evening
Before the past comes out to say:

[Pre-Chorus 2]
"Hey, remember that time that we slept together?"
And we just slept, and your best friend had a go at me
I don't hold that against her...

[Chorus]
Let's go out and have fun tonight
Let's go out and get drunk tonight
Let's pretend that we're alone tonight
Let's go out and have fun

Let's go out and have fun tonight
Let's go out and get drunk tonight
Let's pretend that we're alone tonight
Let's go out and have fun

[Chorus]
Let's go out and have fun tonight
Let's go out and get drunk tonight
Let's pretend that we're alone tonight
Let's go out and have fun

Let's go out and have fun tonight
Let's go out and get drunk tonight
Let's pretend that we're alone tonight
Let's go out and have fun

Wes Anderson

[Verse 1]
I stayed in the shower
To avoid doing some useful shit
My fingers went wrinkly
And my hair had had enough of it

[Refrain]
Oh, whoa-oh, whoa-oh, whoa-oh, whoa-oh
Oh, whoa-oh, whoa-oh, whoa-oh, whoa-oh

[Verse 2]
I slept in this morning
'Cause your bed is so much better than mine
You had left for uni
So I changed my phone's alarm time

[Refrain]
Oh, whoa-oh, whoa-oh, whoa-oh, whoa-oh
Oh, whoa-oh, whoa-oh, whoa-oh, whoa-oh

[Chorus]
You're on my mind
And you're all mine
You're the best night's sleep I've ever had

I think you'll find
If we rewind
That trouble never finds
A place to land

Every day with
You's my lucky day...

[Verse 2]
We went to the movies
Because I know you like Wes Anderson
You held my hand the whole time
And, no joke, you have the softest skin

[Refrain]
Oh, whoa-oh, whoa-oh, whoa-oh
Whoa-oh
Oh, whoa-oh, whoa-oh, whoa-oh
Whoa-oh

[Chorus]
You're on my mind
And you're all mine
You're the best night's sleep I've ever had

I think you'll find
If we rewind
That trouble never finds
A place to land

Every day with
You's my lucky day...

[Bridge]
Take it day by day
You could be the one to drive me home
Sitting in your car
We're telling stories in a no-standing zone

Oh, whoa-oh, whoa-oh, whoa-oh
Whoa-oh, oh...

[Chorus]
You're on my mind
And you're all mine
You're the best night's sleep
I've ever had

I think you'll find
If we rewind
That trouble never finds
A place to land

Every day with
You's my lucky day...

You Don't Think You Like People Like Me

[Verse 1]
All I want is to have cleanskin wine and watch Mulholland Drive with you
But in the morning, through your sleepy eyes, you tell me that I'm not for you
It's not that easy when there's nothing wrong while everything has fallen through
You say it's not to do with me but I really wanna know the truth

[Pre-Chorus 1]
If you can't help it, then why doesn't this count?
You're staying over long after my lights go out
It's taken so long for you to figure out
If it's serious, then what's it really all about?

[Chorus]
You don't think you like people like me
I know I've heard this one before
Maybe I'm the one exception that can last forever
But that can only happen if you let us be together

You don't think you like people like me...

[Verse 2]
You come on over just to leave me here exactly where I was before
If you're in two minds, you know mine's a third, there isn't room for any more
The conversation goes around and around and around, it's all been said before
Like a tornado when it loses speed, these words are gonna hit the floor

[Pre-Chorus 2]
If you can't help it, then why doesn't this count?
You're staying over long after my lights go out...

[Chorus]
You don't think you like people like me
I know I've heard this one before
Maybe I'm the one exception that can last forever
But that can only happen if you let us be together

You don't think you like people like me...

[Bridge]
What's that look on your tired face, honey?
I'm getting tired, don't find this funny
Can we pick it up from where we started?
Even if it leaves me broken-hearted

What's that look on your tired face, honey?
I'm getting tired, don't find this funny
You and I, you and I
Oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh

[Chorus]
You don't think you like people like me
I know I've heard this one before
Maybe I'm the one exception that can last forever
But that can only happen if you let us be together

You don't think you like people like me...

L L L Leave Me Alone

[Verse 1]
I heard you went out to see my friends last week
It's been two years, but you think you've got a monopoly
You think because you're older that you know so much better
But it seems your decisions make me ask more questions

I heard you went you to see my friends last week!

[Chorus]
L-l-l-l-l-l-leave me alone
You know I don't want to see you no more
L-l-l-l-l-l-leave me alone
You know I don't want to see you no more

[Verse 2]
Your new girlfriend kind of looks a lot like me
But that's ok; if you've moved on, then leave me be
You think you're pretty clever, but you are so transparent
And all of your confusion really lacks direction

Your new girlfriend kind of looks like me!

[Chorus]
L-l-l-l-l-l-leave me alone
You know I don't want to see you no more
L-l-l-l-l-l-leave me alone
You know I don't want to see you no more

[Outro]
You think because you're older that you know so much better
But even though you're older, you don't know any better
You think you're pretty clever, but you are so transparent
And all of your confusion really lacks direction

You think because you're older...
