Album: Tell Me How You Really Feel (2018)
  • songfacts ®
  • Lyrics
  • This song is centred around a chorus full of self-loathing where Courtney Barnett writes of a character feeling embittered after being left behind.

    You must be having so much fun
    Everything's amazing
    You're so subservient I make myself sick
    Are you listening?


    "It's definitely very sarcastic, Barnett told Mojo, before adding. "I think it's just about that idea of illusions and projecting things and assuming things."
