  The 1975 - ‘So Far (It’s Alright)’

 
Yeah so far, it’s alright, alright, baby
Yeah so far, it’s alright, alright..
Yeah it’s the way we are
We were smoking by 11 and knocking round town
Beat em’ ups on my arm
We were never good at selling
Couldn’t cut down
And I stay with my father, while his friends die of heart attacks
He’s got a heart made of stone but he never gets cold because the sun’s always on his back
I used to think you’re cool and I believed you had a wonderful vision,
But I soon found out you’re a terrible friend
and your mother’s on the television
Gives a go on your bike, how you getting along with your life
It’s alright, yeah it’s alright,
Yeah so far, it’s alright, alright, baby
Yeah so far, it’s alright, alright, baby..
Oh well I’m coming to the end of 23 she said, is that alright?
And it’s coming to the end of you and me she said, is that alright?
And how can you complain about life and talk about being bored
If you just sit at Pete’s house playing video games
doing sniff that you can’t afford?
I can’t be picking up in the town
So get me one off Adam if he’s sorting you out
I don’t really get what all your friends are about,
I was always looking for a way to get out,
A true reflection of the size of your house
a silver spoon and zoot in your mouth
But you’re alright, yeah it’s alright,
Yeah so far, it’s alright, alright, baby
Yeah so far, it’s alright, alright..
So here we are, it’s quarter to 11
We’re knocking round town
Pushing in, in the bar, you can cry until 11, it’s a quarter of an hour
And why stay if you hate it so much?
You think you’re well cool,
You just write about sex and killing yourself
and how you hardly ever went to school,
Don’t you wanna take me up in the clouds
Pretend that I’m the one and you can show me about
She was talking marriage so we had to get out
Now he’s making up for it by sleeping about,
The ultimatum’s a ridiculous joke
I’m gonna pick the option that allows me to smoke
But I’m alright, yeah it’s alright,
Yeah so far, it’s alright, alright, baby.
