lyrics

When I'm 20 years older maybe I'll look back and laugh
Right now I'm just dwelling
On the things I don't have
Shit I could wake up bald and ageing
I could wake up dead
Could've wasted the time that was fruitlessly mine
Just living alone in my head

Feels like the lockouts in Sydney
Have ruined my weekend again
And I'm trying so hard to sneak back into bars
At least trying to find some friends
And the scorn with which you have swiftly adorned
Feels like a tequila too far
When lovers get hurtin' you guess it's my burden
That's just the way things are

We're all caught in some kind of cycle
Just waiting to bleed
To pay forward the harm that we've locked in our hearts
Now I'm the one planting the seeds
Damn I know I'm a terrible lover
Despicable friend
Oh, half-cheating and lying and loving and leaving
And I knew I was sub-par in bed

Feels like the lockouts in Sydney
Have ruined my weekend again
And I'm trying so hard to sneak back into bars
At least trying to find some friends
And I'm watching the lovers pine sadly for others
While I covet a stranger's kebab
No one's replyin', my phone's slowly dyin'
Just tryin' to call down a cab

I know that men can be cowards, easy to run
I swear I had faith that I wore a new face
But I'm just another cruel one
We're tired and lonely companions, mired in tears
Resentment still climbs after love slowly dies
Be it hours, or days, or years

Feels like the lockouts in Sydney
Are a nightmare I cannot escape
To be stuck in between bogan fever-dreams
Is a fitting and sickening fate
I'll watch the sun rise on the sands of Bondi
While teenagers set fire to bins
Think I'll stay lonesome, sit here on my own some
And try to repent for my sins
