Josh Pyke – The Best Man At Your First Loves Wedding lyrics

[Verse 1]
Making plans is like making the bed,
You know they’re gonna get messed up yet.
And all your dreams and all your hopes,
They’ll get spent like money, blown away like smoke.
But if I truly felt like this was so I’d have quit years ago.
So if I’ve got bad luck at least it’s my luck and I can take it with me when I go.

[Verse 2]
Well life is maths and life is debt
And I’m still living in deficit.
And I want to graph out of the red
And get my head into the clouds again.
But life lived without money is better than a life lived with regret.
So if that’s my good luck I guess it’s my luck.

[Chorus]
‘Cause All those mysteries of youth
They get solved by the years now you’re living proof
Of good seeds grown to fallow fields
And now you’re starving down here with your ribs revealed.
And all your old loves became wives
Of an unimpassioned population hugging the white line.
You could have gone east and you could have gone west
But you stuck to the middle so they made you the best man.
They made you the best man.

[Verse 3]
So if you lose it once you can find it twice
Just hold on tight this time.
But if you burn like me inside
I know you’ll never be satisfied.
Just don’t spead yourself too thin kid
Or there’ll be little left of anything.
And that would be bad luck, yeah that would be bad luck

[Chorus]
‘Cause All those mysteries of youth
They get solved by the years now you’re living proof
Of good seeds grown to fallow fields
And now you’re starving down here with your ribs revealed.
And all your old loves became wives
Of an unimpassioned population hugging the white line
You could have gone east and you could have gone west
But you stuck to the middle so they made you the best man.
Yeah, they made you the best man.

[Chorus]
Oh and a life without fire is a firing squad,
I’m not going to heaven because I’ve never known God.
But I do believe there’s something more
And I do have a clue what I’ve been looking for.
Yeah one day I want to find the breach
Between the things that I want and the things that I need
And when I get there will I know?
Well I’m thinking that I don’t think so.
I just don’t want to be the best man.

[Verse 4]
Just when you think you’ve got nothing left
To write about well here she comes.
And just when you think you might’ve snared a good one
You’re back on the run.
But I’ll keep breaking choices down
Untill I’m only left with one.
