Give Yourself A Try

Album: A Brief Inquiry into Online Relationships (2018)
Charted: 22
  • You learn a couple things when you get to my age
    Like friends don't lie and it all tastes the same in the dark
    When your vinyl and your coffee collection is a sign of the times
    You're getting spiritually enlightened at 29

    So just give yourself a try
    Won't you give yourself a try?
    Won't you give yourself a try?
    Won't you give?

    I found a grey hair in one of my suits
    Like context in a modern debate I just took it out
    The only apparatus required for happiness
    Is your pain and fucking going outside
    And getting STD's at 27 really isn't the vibe
    Jane took her own life at 16
    She was a kid who had the box tattooed on her arm
    And I was 25 and afraid to go outside
    A millennial that baby-boomers like

    Won't you give yourself a try?
    Won't you give yourself a try?
    Won't you give yourself a try?
    Won't you give?

    And what would you say to your younger self?
    Growing a beard's quite hard
    And whiskey never starts to taste nice
    And you'll make a lot of money, and it's funny
    'Cause you'll move somewhere sunny and get addicted to drugs
    And spend obscene amounts on fucking seeds and beans online

    So just give yourself a try
    Won't you give yourself a try?
    Won't you give yourself a try?
    Won't you give? Writer/s: Adam Brian Thomas Hann, George Bedford Daniel, Matthew Timothy Healy, Ross Stewart MacDonald, Bernard Sumner, Ian Curtis, Peter Hook, Stephen Paul David Morris
